Had an outstanding dinner here on a very busy night- excellent food and service! Terry was our server and recommended the seafood pasta special which was perfectly cooked with huge portions of very fresh shrimp, haddock, scallops, mussels and clams. Great meal!!

The service and food were excellent! Crusty bread served with olive oil. We opted not to get apps as we were told the servings were generous. I had the eggplant parm, my husband had the chicken parm and both were delicious. We could not have...More

It's a little hidden, Italian but the food is homemade. The service was great and the food to die for

This is a medium priced Italian dinner restaurant. We split the antipasto salad and the linguine with clams. Both were delicious and very generous portions for two of us.

We had planned to have dinner here based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were from out of town, no reservation and it looked like a town festival had just ended. It was packed, but they welcomed us without a reservation, and it was awesome!. Dean Martin,...More

First time eating here and will be back if we are ever in the area again. Everyone loved their meal. The pasta was fresh, chicken delicious and salads very fresh. Nobody had anything bad to say. Highly recommend!

This review really stopped me in my tracks and I'm completely puzzled by it. While it's normal for restaurants to have their 'off' nights, my girlfriend and I routinely make the drive from upstate New York to have dinner at Frankie's. We have always found the quality of the food to be superior and consistent. And their service is attentive. The mandolin-sliced au gratin potatoes are some of the finest I've ever tasted. The deep-fried zucchini (Zucchini Fritti) is a creative and delicious appetizer. Meatballs are soft, flavorful, and memorable; and their Marinara is fresh and simple. All entrees are served with a nouveau flair but with old-world flavors and recipes. I'm a trained chef and restaurant consultant and tend to be a tough customer. I feel this one-star review by Tom M. is unfounded and has other motives behind it. I've been dining at Frankie's since they opened and have always had a delicious meal every time. I know from personal experience how much work it takes for a restaurant to get it right on a regular basis. I can't say that about many places. Keep up the great work, Frankie's. Ci Vediamo Presto!
