best Italian food in any suburbWhen my wife and I arrived we were greeted warmly by the hostess who than proceeded to sit us at our desired location .our server Giovanni was fantastic and the food was as good if not better than any Italian restaurant I have been to in Chicago or New York.the ambiance was old school with frank Sinatra playing in the background.the owner Frank was fantastic and we can't say more about our experience there.we went back immediately after our first night just to try other items on the menu that we were dying to try the previous night.I would recommend Frankies to anyone looking for a wonderful night out.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was fabulous.Servers were on-spot, not too much yet always present to swoop in take care of matters, timing was perfect. All our food was excellent, everyone thought theirs was the best and wanted to share with others. My Sea Bass was delicate, light, tasty, truly the best I have ever had. We split desserts for a great sampling, I never had such great crème brulee. Reasonably priced and definitely worth returning. I wish I knew it has been there for 5yrs already.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food & serviceThis was our 1st time & it was excellent! The outdoor dining with all the flowers & decor was beautiful. We had the grilled octopus & sausage & peppers for an app & it was superb. I had the frutti di mare (pasta w/seafood) & my wife had the sea bass special & she said it was the best she ever had. Frankie the owner walks around & greets all his patrons. He is a nice young man. I was shock to see this young man as the owner of this environment. We will be back for sure!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Atmosphere and Very Good FoodI visited this restaurant for my 6th wedding anniversary; The atmosphere and service were great and romantic. However, it was pricy IMHO. My wife had the Linguini sea food mix and I had the rabbet stuffed pasta for entree; we had the octopus for appetizer; non of which I think were great but very good non the less. The desert, however, was excellent and tasted great.
Overall, it was a very good experience and I would visit again but will be careful on what to order to stay below $80.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be back again!The food was wonderful. We will be back to try more dishes.The dining area was very inviting. The service was Outstanding!; attentive, cordial. The owners came by to say hello. Who does that anymore these days.! I'm thinking only a family owned, quality and service orientated restaurant. Loved everything about Frankie's and will be back again with family and friends!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service! FeltGreat food and service! Felt like we were back in Italy!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMQuaint with an upscale feelFrankie's Restaurante has it all; good food, ambiance, great service and family owners who welcome you and make you feel at home. Great place!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a repeat patron I can honestlyAs a repeat patron I can honestly say that the food has been outstanding consistently/5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodMy wife and I are regulars here because of the food and service. the family that owns it always makes a point for one of them to stop by the table and see how everything is going. This time we had a new waiter and the owner came by after dinner for our personal feedback on the service. This attention to customer satisfaction is one of the reasons we are regulars. The other is the food. Frankie's always has different daily specials that make it hard to choose which to order, seafood, meat, risotto, and pastas that the chef creates. This is a local gem that I hope lasts a long time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Hidden GemFrankie's is new for us. We have been there twice so far. We LOVE it - the owners are wonderful and friendly. They stroll from table to table making sure we are completely pleased! Besides the menus, their specials are the best and I advise them. We had Red Snapper, uniquely prepared, Stuffed Peppers, Chicken Vesuvio and Chicken Marsala to date. We will be trying much more in the near future and we will have every special occasions there. My parent are elderly and the only thing I would recommend is the lighting is very low , so bring flashlights. We love great bread - Frankie's does need help in this area. But, that is not imporant in the big scheme of things. We rate this our Number 2 restaurant of all our current Italaian Restaurants!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!!!!Let me just start by saying I'm such a foodie. This place is outstanding. I live in Frankfort about 15 min away & came here for the 1st time & was not disappointed! My girlfriend & I split the seafood risotto for an appetizer, which was out of this world. Then for entree, I had the sea bass which was not fishy at all & tasted so good! My friend had the pappardelle pasta in a cream black truffle sauce which was one of the best pasta dishes she ever had. We were so full for dessert so we just had coffee, but I'm sure they are wonderful also. A young man was going around to all the tables asking about their dining & was very personable. Later finding out that it was Frankie himself. We will return!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!!!Our evening here was wonderful! The staff is exceptional & the food is phenomenal! My husband had the Osso Buco & I had homemade rigatoni with a wild boar bolognese which were both outstanding! We had the grilled octopus for appetizer & it was so tender & good. We had tiramisu which is different from typical but very good! Frankie the owner came to our table to make sure our experience was good & it was! We will be back!!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFrankie's has the look andFrankie's has the look and feel of a downtown restaurant with white table cloths, romantic lighting, and seasoned servers. The food is delicious and the nightly specials are different from the menu and are always good. The owners are always at Frankie's resturant to greet you and make you feel like a welcomed guest.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I have beenMy husband and I have been frequent guests at Frankie's and every time we go we have wonderful food and a great atmosphere!

The food was delicious. I had the alligator raviolli special. It was marvelous! They always have some type of exotic special, besides their great regular Italian menu items. The service was very knowledgable and friendly. The owner and staff were very friendly! My wife and I highly recommend Frankies.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was not spectacularThe food was not spectacular but a good value for the price. the veal marsala was somewhat bland. The marsala sauce did not have the ususal sweetness accociated with the dish. While the veal was tender, it lacked a marsala flovor.
My wife's lasagna was also bland. It had a lot of tomato sauce but overall it was unremarkable.
The service was good the ambiance was also good.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA+++++Excellent food. The owner was there and was very friendly.
He visited our table several times and was generally interested in our dining experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousOur food & service here was outstanding. I love the decor in this place, it reminded me of Tuscany. Our server was outstanding in recommending everything. We had the mussels & app special to start off (best mussels I've ever had) we both had the Frankie's salad. My husband had the short ribs over risotto & I had the seabass. Both out of this world. We were both greeted at the table by the owner who seems to make his way to all the tables which was very nice. We will be back!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic food and servicefantastic food and service will be back.............3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. BeenFood was excellent. Been there several times and have never been disappointed. TIP... If you want a quiet meal, don't go on Wednesday night unless you call ahead to confirm. We went on a Wednesday and did not know it was 2 for 1 pasta night. Great deal for young families, but we would have chosen a different night . More kids and babies than usual and it was quite loud. There was also live music which was nice if not for the expressive young children near our table. We will definitely be returning for the excellent food and table service..... just not on Wednesdays! See you at Frankie's!.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all had a very enjoyableWe all had a very enjoyable dinner.
