No frills, just good honest Italian food, catering to college crowd, inexpensive. Parking can be tricky during school months. Has been there forever - tried and true.

We found this little restaurant by accident. It is one block off the main street. We had a short wait before being seated for a delicious Italian dinner. We had pasta with pesto, fettuccini alfredo with broccoli and the most delicious meat lasagna. Great value -great food.

We went to this restaurant for the first time based on a recommendation from a friend. The service was good and the food was really tasty. It took a while to get our food, but at the time we offered the restaurant was pretty busy. My only let down was with the 16" pepperoni pizza I purchased which had no... More

Stopped in here for lunch, as I am always a fan of local places and prefer mom-and-pop joints over the more pretentious 'foodie' joints that seem to be popping up around the circle. Came away pretty disappointed. The chicken ceasar salad was weak - the chicken was cold, breaded and gamey, the dressing was bland. The garlic bread with cheese... More

Now that the longtime Boves is closed we decided to try a new place. Papa Franks lives up to expectations. The food was inexpensive and the portions are huge. Mostly importantly it tasted great and we had lots of leftovers for everyone to enjoy again the next day. Only downside, I'll need to spend more time on the treadmill this... More

Stuffed shells, and Spaghetti with tomato and garlic sauce were great. Also enjoyed a Caprese salad , and a House Salad. The local mozzarella in the salads was the best I've ever had.

Food was good and prices were reasonable, but on a night where there were open tables the service was unbelievably slow. It took 20 minutes for the waitress to even take our drink order. After we ordered, my wife was brought the wrong entree (we didn't return it, because we didn't want to wait half an hour for the right... More
