We visited Frankie Pesto's on a Thursday evening so the restaurant wasn't busy at all which is to be somewhat expected downtown during February. The service was great and they gave us ample time to make our choices. There is lots to choose from on the menu and we were all very satisfied with the selections we made. Portion size... More

Dropped in here on the evening of 10 Feb, my last night in Canada. After dining on burgers, pizza, poutine and the like for a week it was definitely time for a change. I ordered the Atlantic salmon with pea risotto followed by a raspberry cheese cake. Both were amazing. The staff here are really friendly and very attentive. If... More

Arrived at 7:30pm on a Saturday night and hostess was kind enough to find us a table two. We did not have a reservation. The meal was very good. Tasty, fresh and more then affordable. The service was terrific and the food was very good. Very old school Italian food and decor. Loved it.

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere nice for dinner but had our 2 year old with us. This was the perfect place, it has a great atmosphere, really nice staff and they were welcoming to our toddler. Our food was delicious and reasonably priced.

This restaurant is located right in downtown Kingston. It has great atmosphere and a nice patio right on Ontario St. Service is usually very good - there is one wisecracking waiter who becomes a bit much after a while, but overall service is fine. The food is excellent. Plenty of options and food always comes out plentiful, hot and tasty.... More

Took my girlfriend here for a romantic dinner during the Christmas Holidays. Success on all fronts: it was romantic, delicious, and reasonably priced too (smile)!

Met with some friends last Friday night for a few drinks and a meal. We ordered salmon, pizza and pasta. We were all satisfied with our selections.

My wife and I went there because it was near our hotel and we like Italian. While my wife very much enjoyed her meal, mine was a huge disappointment. I would have sent it back but my wife was enjoying her well cooked meal and I didn't want to spoil her experience. My Caesar salad was romaine, a grating of... More

Maybe I was just in a good mood or something, but I kept telling my wife how nice a dinner I enjoyed at Frankie Pestos. I had the Chicken Parmesan, my wife had another Chicken dish she enjoyed and my 12 year old son had the Mac and Cheese... for appetizer we had the garlic bread with a white cheese... More
