    We simply love this place. From Jerry and his friendly hostesses to outstanding service by Alfredo of some of the best Italian food you will ever eat, this place is wonderful. Eggplant and a special pasta for appetizers. Yellowtail Oreganata and their famous Veal Parm for main course. Truly tremendous.

    The food was good and there was a lot of it. Plus the service was excellent. My only complaint was having to pay $15 a glass for a so so Pino. I learning if you don't pick the wine they'll give you the highest price one.

    Being that I love to eat and especially eat out I am always happy to find a new restaurant with great food!! The fish was fresh, the veal parmigiana was huge enough for two people to share, the help was friendly and accommodating. A bit on the pricier side but well worth it!!

    The atmosphere at Frank and Dino's is fabulous. The entertainment is so enjoyable, probably the main reason I go there. The food is good , I would like to see the staff a little more attentive and to be versed in the entire dining experience. The bar area tends to cater to the people who are regulars and sometimes I have brought friends in there only to feel that some people got more attention then others. It should always be a great experience for all the guests.

    This was not my first time there. We were 4 people. 3/4 were served promptly while there was a snafu in the kitchen. They never made my dish. Finally it arrived and i was the last to eat. It was good but nevertheless. The maitre d didnt care nd didnt want to "do" anything for us to compensate our experience. There Re way too many italian restaurants locally. Needless to say we wont be going back and u can be sure we will let our firiends know about our experience

    I have been meaning to go to this restaurant for a while. Wish i didn't last night. The food was ok - nothing to write home about. We started off with baked clams, they were very "oily" and flavorless. Then i ordered snapper oreganata and my husband had the veal chop. Again, my dish was covered in oil and again flavorless. My husband's dish was ok. The wait staff was very unfriendly as well as the host. As we left i tried to say goodbye to the host, he barely looked up at us and pretty much ignored us. I will never go back.

    Everything was fine, but not great.. Could have had the same meal at half the price somewhere else. Service was okay, but not all that friendly. The best part of the meal was the calamari appetizer, it was excellent! Entrees were just average and don't come with a salad so we split a caesar which was very good.

    Food, ambience , service was fantastic, superb experience. The aroma from the delicious dishes as you enter the restaurant were hypnotic. Staff were extremely accommodating, kind and helpful. A member of our party has gluten intolerance . That was not an issue for the chef at all. A wonderful, warm, friendly restaurant . Beautiful decor. Fabulous wine list and manager that made our evening an exceptional one. Portions are huge so look forward to taking home or having fun sharing a few fabulous dishes.

    I'm an older guy (widower) who is try to find my Love for the rest of my life. Now I need all the help I can get and Frank & Dino's gives that helping hand. Great Food; both of our dishes were suburb; a small Intimate Atmosphere, Excellent Friendly Service. What more could you ask for? Maybe a few less $? The saying "You get what you pay for." comes to mind. For a couple looking for a Romantic place to dine; to celebrate any occasion, you certainly could not do better then Frank & Dino's.

    On a recent Saturday evening at Frank and Dino's: The food was adequate and the service was good. The waiters were attentive. My daughter and I ordered regular martinis, up with olives. What we got was grape-flavored martinis; we sent them back. The next one my daughter received was okay. My next one tasted of grape. My wife ordered a raspberry vodka martini with raspberry liquor added. Her drink came back with just straight raspberry vodka and no added raspberry liquor. The waiter take it back. The drink came back with a little bit of raspberry liquor. I asked to see the manager and related to him the problem with the martinis. He seemed to be unconcerned and displayed a lack of concern.

    I live in an affluent section of Boca raton and we rarely venture out to expiriment beyond Delray or Boca but we decidied to venture out to Deerfield. I read a few mixed reviews but took my chances. Turns out-this place was amazing! Beautiful atmosphere- we sat in a private wine room. I am not a real affianado of fish but I selected the Bronzino special- it was arguably the most delicious fish dish I have ever eaten. Beautiful atmosphere, incredible food, strong service-this place definitely goes on the regular rotation.

    We had as usual a wonderful dinner at Frank and Dino's. My husband is not to adventurous but he did try the fried zucchini blossoms and as well as the pasta purses with ricotta and pear both were outstanding. I had the veal osso bucco and should have check on the cost before ordering but still worthwhile. My husband had veal marsala that he tells me it is the best he has ever had. We did not havedessert. Our only misgiving was a problem with a cocktail. my husband ordered a cosmo and when it was sent back the bartender was not happy. another was brought, still did not live up to his taste so he changed cocktails and was happy. We have yet to encounter a bad time at this restaurant. It is definitely pricey but always an excellentmea

    Simply wonderful. Great service from Alfredo. The chef made a pasta which two of us had as an appetizer which may be the best ever. Little pocketbook shaped with special cheese and pear blend. Amazing. Two of us had fish and loved it. Two of us had their veal chop parm which is the best in the world but requires an enormous appetite, a willingness to take food home or being okay with leftovers being thrown out. Great meal.

    The service was impeccable but the food a disappointment. We ordered the "special" appetizer called the fried zuccini flower, it came out as 4 bite sized fried zuccini & cheese balls with a sauce that seemed like salsa combined with pasta sauce, it all tasted microwaved. They also charge us $18 for those 4 bite sized disappointments. Then came the soup, we ordered the eacarole bean soup, not bad but it was the same quality as canned soup. For our entrees we both ordered another "special" the Bronzino, also disappointing, the sauce was watery and the mussels were very fishy. I would give the restaurant another chance because of how great the service was, the waiter was very attentive and the food was timed perfectly. No more specials though!
