- Pasta and salad were veryOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 4/25/2012Pasta and salad were very good but main courses were just fair. Although our waiter was attentive at the start, he neglected us when a larger party sat down. The restaurant was not busy, so we felt he could have been more visible than he was. The singer was too loud and interfered with conversation. Background music would have been preferable. We will not hurry back.
- The exterior of the restaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/19/2012The exterior of the restaurant is deceiving. It is truly lovely on the inside...almost like you step from one world to the next. The food was very good. Standard Italian/American fair. The place was packed, so I guess most people really like it. The portions are huge. That could play a role. Our waitress wasn't the best waitress, but she was acceptable. Could have been on off night for her. The place is super noisy and it is hard to hear the wait staff. They play very loud New York/Sinatra style music. Fun atmosphere from that standpoint. It's worth a try. Some may love this. Just not my kind of thing.Special Features:

- Our third time here. OutstandingKAS1VIPDined on 4/7/2012Our third time here. Outstanding food. Waiter Dominick (second time he has waited on us) is outstanding. I ordered the Veal Chop Parm and it was wonderful. My wife had the Snapper and she really enjoyed it. Our relatives visiting from out of town had the chicken parm and the ravioli special. Both really enjoyed their food. Only thing to keep in mind is that this is not a quiet restaurant. A lively environment but very comfortable.Special Features:
- Food overpriced. BranzinoOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 3/31/2012Food overpriced. Branzino $42 served without any side. Bread below average for a Dennis Max venue.Special Features:

- Not worth the waitOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 3/24/2012Although Open Table reflected plenty of availability at the restaurant, the restaurant was crowded and totally chaotic. We were finally seated about an hour and 20 minutes after our reservation time. Service was rushed, food is average. The entertainer was well..... Entertaining. Probably the only positive comment I would have.
- My wife and her girlfriendOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 3/24/2012My wife and her girlfriend waited 45 minutes with a reservation. service was slow because " a computer problem on open table over booked "
- Just love this restaurant.OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/24/2012Just love this restaurant. Consistently excellent - food, service and ambiance! Plan to make many visits. Great spot for entertaining. Plaudits, too, to Open Table for having an easy to use website and great followup. I make one comment/suggestion: Your website already begins the reservation with the 2 in number of people. Twice now I just 'zipped' over it as the pull down already was 'filled in'. Would prefer it be left blank to complete and not allow the reservation to go through until I 'pulled down' the number of people in the party. I had a tough time trying to change the number of people and finally did call the restaurant directly. Maybe it's just me! Thanks again.Special Features:
- Excellent food!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/23/2012I have eaten there twice now and the good is excellent. Appetizers: calamari, meatballs, clams Entrees: oso buco, veal parm, gnocchi The food is prepared perfectly and the pasta is all homemade Salute!Special Features:
- The appetisers flowers zucciniOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/23/2012The appetisers flowers zuccini At. $19'00 Was too expensive .
- We were thrilled to find theGlobetrotterVIPDined on 3/21/2012We were thrilled to find the restaurant so busy (since it was our first visit)..The decor was great, however; the service was rushed. The food was very bland (such a disappointment). Perhaps not to offend anyones palate. We had four different items and there was no flavor at all. The singer was very good & we did enjoy him.
- Food was poor, veal was tough.OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/17/2012Food was poor, veal was tough. Chicken tasteless and mashed potatoes cold.
- We celebrated our 5th AnniversaryOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/17/2012We celebrated our 5th Anniversary at Frank and Dinos and this was our first time. The food was amazing! Definately comparable, if not better than Monterranos and Runway 84. The ambiance was remenescent and we loved the entertainement. We found ourselves singing along. We are planning to have another family celebration there soon in the the charming private room very soon.Special Features:

- When we arrived for our 7:45OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/25/2012When we arrived for our 7:45 reservation we were told it would be 15 minutes. Luckily there were a couple seats at the bar. Two of of us had very good dinners...veal marsala and spaghetti and meatballs, however the one diner had to order spaghetti & meatballs because the waiter returned to the table to say they were out of the dish with the brasciole. Of the 2 snapper entrees,one was over cooked and one was just fair. For dessert we ordered the signature chocolate cake and the waiter returned to say they were out of it. Alternative tiramisu was excellent. Service excellent...fish dishes a disappointment.

- Good ambience and service.DarcyDined on 2/21/2012Good ambience and service. Food good but no exciting unusual Italian choices. Doris GiddingSpecial Features:
- This new restaurant specialisesSupertoothVIPDined on 2/18/2012This new restaurant specialises in pasta and their "special meatballs". On Saturday night at 7:30 PM they were out of meatballs! (Does MacDonalds run out of hamburgers?) Although our reservation was honored on time, the tables were so close together that we had trouble being seated, and the waiters (when they showed up)were unable to walk around our table.(They passed us the food when it finally arrived) The noise was unbearable, and to make it worse, there was background music, and even a very loud strolling singer. The service was terrible, the food VERY expensive and unedible,and management could care less if we ever came back.(and we never will!)
- We had a lovely evening ValentinesMaxieVIPDined on 2/14/2012We had a lovely evening Valentines Day.. The atmosphere was real 60's with ASinatra music. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. The cocktails were large and good. The meal was quite good as well We would be happy to spend another evening there soonSpecial Features:
- This was the second time forOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 2/14/2012This was the second time for us. Sorry to say it was not nearly as good as the first visit. Meatball were undercooked and warm at best. The pepperocini appetizer was mushey and cool in the center. Caesar salad was just so so. Server forgot my side dish which never arrived. Will probably try one more time even though my veal was over loaded with the flour coating.
- First time at this restaurant.VerneDined on 2/14/2012First time at this restaurant. First 2 items selected on the menu were not available. My portion was very small. At dessert there were only 2 items available. We dined one hour after the restaurant opened so the lack of selection was not due to turnover. Overall there are far superior italian restaurants in the srea. I would doubt they would be open 6 monthts from now.
- No privacy . Table next toOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/13/2012No privacy . Table next to us kept looking at us all the time . It was not a romantic evening .
- Excellent Southern Italianfoodie1VIPDined on 2/12/2012Excellent Southern Italian standards perfectly prepared with fresh ingredients. Excellent Marinara sauce. Professional service. Expensive. While a noisy restaurant is not always a good thing, I wish they would play Frank and Dino's music louder. It was difficult to hear.Special Features:
- Atmosphere, food, and serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/11/2012Atmosphere, food, and service were all great! Some menu items seemed to be a little pricey, but well worth it!
- This is a nice restaurantFloridaFoodieDined on 2/10/2012This is a nice restaurant for old school NY style Italian American fare. The menu has all the favorites. For starters I had a small taste of eggplant with cheese and sauce. My dinner companion had the tri-color salad. The salad dressing was good but a bit acidic. Next I had a Veal Chop pounded and grilled with onions and red peppers ($34). Quite tasty. It came with green beans. My companion had the veal marsala (around $28-$30). Very good and the portions were correct. Nice wine list and prices are fair for the wines-bottles or by the glass. We had a tirimisu for desert ($11). This is a good restaurant not great but good. The prices are a little high for some items(desert-$11.) but I would still recommend.
