    Truly enjoyed our evening at Frank and Dino's! The food, service, ambiance, entertainment made for a very pleasant dinner! The singer, Tony Martelli has a fantastic voice, singing mostly Frank Sinatra songs. I heard Tony prior to our visit at Frank & Dino's at another establishment and he was the reason we decided to try Frank and Dino's. We were very disappointed at the sound system at Frank & Dino's for Tony, it did not do his voice justice. That should surely be improved on. He alone will bring people in and coming back for more if that is done.

    Being from the Northeast, I always look for Italian restaurants that are of the same quality we receive up north. The place is beautiful one of the best atmospheres you could ask for. Service was very good, and the waiter was very helpful. Although the food over all was spectacular, the Meatballs and Sausage I felt were not. The sausage and meatballs both were very dry and flavorless. The pasta dishes we had were outstanding, but we weren't even offered a salad. I felt overall, especially given the quality of the meat .. the restaurant is a bit over priced. We spent over 200 and only three drinks were purchased for the whole party.

  • Disappointing this time
    Bernie48
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    Having eaten here before, I was disappointed this time. I know it was a Sunday evening and maybe the head chef was off, but the food was not up to par this time. My wife had a seafood dish and nothing was mentioned that bell peppers were in the sauce- she previously had it there without peppers. I had chicken scarpariello that was supposed to be spicy- there was so much balsamic in it that it was dark as midnight and soooo sweet.

    After reading the previous reviews I was a little hesitant to take a chance. My wife, SIL, and myself went there as it was rainy and we live close by. Our waiter Gino was quick to bring wine list, menus & water. The wine by the glass list is limited but Gino made a couple of great suggestions. Chef came out. He pretty much took over and discussed several dishes. We went with the veal with a chestnut sauce and a pasta stuffed with pear and gorgonzola. For appetizer we had a calamari steak. It was incredible and as the chef described you could cut it with a fork not rubbery at all. The only minor complaint is that the bus boys were a little too eager to clear. This was a memorable experience. Food was as good as it gets.

    My favorite Italian restaurant was dissapointing this time. One reason I go is for the clams which have always been great but this time werent good. taste was off plus very salty. Figured you must have gotten a new chef.

    Had a reservation and was seated right away. The hostess was very pleasant. Took a long time for a waiter to come and same happened for the rest of dinner. I had 2 glasses of wine . The first was less than half full. I assumed it was an error. Ordered another and it too was less than half. Never saw a restaurant go so cheap on the wine. Husband ordered Ceasar salad . was so dry and no flavor. The meatballs were very good but only a teaspoon of ricotta for two. Waiter tried to memorize two meals. He came back and asked me what I ordered again. When the meals arrived, my husbands was right mine was wrong. I had to wait so long to make the correct dish, husband was almost finished. Was given a free piece of cake , it was my birthday

    I have to say this is a great place. The service was excellent. It reminded me of my years leaving in Connecticut. I've been in south Florida for 8 yrs and have yet found a place with excellent service until now. I've gotten use to asking for water when my glass is empty and ask for my server when I need to, but not at Franks & Dino's. The waiter very attentive my glass of water was never empty and the atmosphere was excellent. the food was excellent. When we finish dinner we were not rushed the waiter came over and asked if we wanted any dessert, coffee or any other type of drink. I said no and the waiter very kindly said let me know when you're ready. Not like other places where they just bring you the bill immediately.

    Went to Frank and Dino's after driving past it for months. Located in a strip center, it can be overlooked. But step inside and you will be transformed in time. A real old school Italian place. Pictures of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin all around you. Top notch service. You will feel like you are back in the old country with Nonna. Food was delish. A definite must try.

    First visit was outstanding. The one on 4/16 was not great! Bar service was fine. We had a very uncooperative waiter, everything was an issue with him. Check was incorrect. Finally had to speak to manager. He was apologetic and tried to soothe our jangled nerves, but by then the whole experience had been spoiled. The food was good, but the yellowtail snapper was oozing with too much butter.
