Food 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.

best Italian food in any suburb
When 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.

charge to share an entree
charge to share an entree be aware and no sweet wine the risling was very dry, got very loud quickly and difficult to travel through the tables with wheelchairs and walkers

Atmosphere very comfortable and conversation friendly.Everyone truly liked their starters, entrees, and desserts! Not a sour note. It's old style--somewhat suburban--but not "red-sauce dominated." Good service attentive, but not intrusive.
ACTUALLY, A VERY GOOD RESTAURANT .

We all enjoyed our apps, entrees, & dessert. Our server was excellent & very knowledgable about the menu. We all can't wait to come back!

Outstanding food & service
We came here for dinner & were VERY pleased. Our server Debbie was very knowledgeable about the menu. We both tried the kale salad for an appetizer & it was fabulous! I had the risotto & my wife had the homemade pasta with bolognese sauce which was to die for. We had tiramisu & creme brulee for dessert which were both great! The owner Frankie came to our table to check on us & bring limoncello! He was very nice! We will be back!!!

Back to Frankie's
The food was very good. We have been to Frankie's several times and are never disappointed.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite southside restaurant
It's consistently good and wait staff is very personable and friendly. So is Frankie, always visible in case there's a need for attention.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have gone to Frankie's
We have gone to Frankie's several times and have enjoyed their food. I tend to think that sometimes they overcook the fish, especially the salmon. But, we have had other fish that that cooked to perfection.

Good food in a comfortable setting
Visited with a group of five and enjoyed the experience. Small plates menu is reasonable with three courses and better portions than the pricier regular menu. The music was a little loud for conversation, but was lowered upon request. Nice atmosphere and decor. The food was tasty and service was friendly. Only negative was the closed blinds. Facing north and east, the sun wasn't a factor, and in the summer, it's nice to have natural light.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We REALLY enjoy Frankie's! Food & service are great! Frankie always makes you feel welcomed & at home. His sister Angela is a sweet girl too. Great menu, but the specials are always a hit! Can't wait to go back. We always look forward to it.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tonight, we tried their pasta
Tonight, we tried their pasta for the very first time on their 2 for 1 pasta night! wE HAD THE SPECIAL SPAGHETTI WITH THEIR FAMOUS BOLOGNESE MEAT SAUCE - IT WAS TO DIE FOR, BUT NOT ALWAYS ON THE MENU. THE LASAGNA WAS DIFFERENT. IF YOU LIKE IT CHEESY, DO NOT ORDER - THIS IS FILLED WITH THE MEAT SAUCE, BUT VERY LITTLE CHEESE. WE HAD THE RAVIOLI WITH SPINACH, MUSHROOM AND PEAS THAT WAS EXCELLENT. AS ALWAYS, THEIR CHICKEN VESUVIO IS OUTSTANDING ALONG WITH THEIR OTHER CHICKEN DISHES AND THEIR FISH SPECIALS ARE WONDERFUL - ALWAYS PREPARED PERFECTLY. SERVICE IS TOP NOTCH AND OUTSIDE SEATING IS A NICE TOUCH FOR THOSE WHO ENJOY IT.
WONDERFUL NIGHT - OUR WEEKLY STOP.

Great evening out....
I've always had great food and great service. Love have a great restaurant close to home.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Being 100 percent Italian,
Being 100 percent Italian, I am very leery on ordering a pasta dish, however, I your pasta sauce (gravy) was delicious.
Also, the decor of the restaurant is very warm and reminded me of a couple ristorantes we dined at when in Rome and Venice.
Definitely will come back.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
AM I IN ITALY AGAIN?
This place is fantastic! The service, the decor, & of course the food! This was our first time & won't be our last. The specials were so good that they kept me wanting more. Haha. I loved the limoncello they brought us after also, It was fantastic! I live in Frankfort & will be back more. Sorry Francesca's this is my new favorite!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful restaurant, very good food and fair pricing. Wouldn't hesitate to go back!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been dining at Frankies for years. Never dissapointed
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I know what to expect at Frankie's.......excellent food and excellent service! My husband & I met our niece & her boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. Everything was perfect.... we all ordered something different and it was difficult to get a taste of my other guest's food.....they wanted it all to themselves...too good to share!!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Restaurant for any occasion
I would recommend this restaurant for business or pleasure. Calm atmosphere, easy to communicate with each other. Also could be romantic place for a couple.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will go back again
Great service and great food in a nice atmosphere. Authentic and quick too!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thanks for another great experience
Right through the door, and kind and knowledgeable hostess/host greats us with a warm welcome. Do to it's popularity, there might be a short wait until our table is ready which just gives us an opportunity to have a drink at the bar and take a look around. The bar staff has always been great which sometimes lures us into enjoying our dinner at the bar top and mingling with other guests. Excellent service and great personalities match their knowledge at the bar and the tables when we do make it there for a more private/romantic dining experience. The kitchen and B.O.H do a great job and the food is fantastic. Management/owners mingle with tables to say hello, thank guests and ensure the best service possible. Thanks Frankie's, see you soon.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a winner - but we missed
Always a winner - but we missed our waiter Jasmin. Food was out of this world! Thanks for helping us celebrate Mom's birthday!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM

Frankies is ALWAYS a great place to dine. Frank, Vince, Nina and Angela are always welcoming and warm.

It is not your ordinary spaghetti and meatball restaurant. Their ricotta gnocchi is to die for

everything was wonderful,.
everything was wonderful,. Food, service, ambience- Frankies has it all
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Touchdown!
Frankie's is our go-to spot. Had dinner with a dear friend I hadn't seen in over a year. The food is outstanding and the service is the best I've ever experienced. Daily specials are creative and delicious. Frankie is always there to make sure things run smoothly and to stop by your table with a smile and a hug.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I Have been to Frankie's about 10 times now, and I have always had a great experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal
We have never had a bad experience at Frankie's. The service is always friendly and attentive. My wife says the lasagna is the best she has had in any restaurant. I always look forward to see what the chef's specials are on the night we eat there. This night I chose the gnocchi with wild boar, and it was delicious. It was rich and filling and I had enough to bring home for another meal. There is always a meat, fish, pasta, or risotto to choose from, in addition to the regular menu. Having a great restaurant like Frankie's right in the neighborhood is fantastic.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a treat
Frankie's is one of our favorite spots. Great food, friendly service, and a reasonable price make it a winner each and every time.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special request fulfilled
They were able to fulfill a special request my husband requested to surprise me for Sweetest Day. It was very sweet and unexpected, besides being very delicious. The soup of the day was amazing, and the spumoni gelato for desert was perfecto!! We have honestly NEVER had a bad or even mediocre meal here. Don't let the strip mall location sway you. It is a great restaurant.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have never had a disappointing experience at Frankie's. The food is always outstanding with an unexpected menu for a suburban locale. The family owed business always makes us feel welcome as though we are sitting in their home. Very warm, cozy and inviting. This is the type of restaurant that keeps you coming back and with an impressive menu and interesting array of specials--you will want to be back to see what the chef has newly created.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A romantic getaway
My husband asked me out and took me to Frankie's. We went early so there was not a lot of people. The atmosphere was very welcoming at very friendly host and server. The food was fabulous. Great suggestions from server. Will definitely go back!!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful. The diners we had in our party were great. On the whole it was a wonderful evening out. Also, I did not have to cook the meal, clean up. I just sat back and enjoyed. You do know this is from a female (Wife, Mother, Care giver, etc.)
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a can't miss
We can always count on Frankie's for great food & service! This place is awesome! Don't change a thing!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank You for A Nice Evening
We had a great time at Frankie's on Friday. The food and service were outstanding....
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We very much enjoyed our girls night out here. Our server was "Frankie" himself, which we thought was cool. I had the short-ribs (which he suggested) & they were great. All of us very much enjoyed our dinner & his wine recommendations. He brought us limoncello & the end which he says he makes! It was outstanding. He said he doesn't always serve, but if you get him, it's a treat!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Frankies never disappoints
We've dined at Frankies many times. The food, service and wine list are consistently excellent.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a Pleasure
I have been going to Frankie's since it opened and it gets better and better every time. The food is always cooked to perfection and the service is wonderful. They always have a wonderful selection of specials. I recommend Frankie's to all my friends and family.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Found our new favorite restaurant! Terrific ambiance - from the wonderful smells, romantic, eclectic lighting, enjoyable yet non-obtrusive music, and old world feel. Service was attentive, friendly and professional and made us feel welcome from the first moment. Not rushed. Food was outstanding! Looking forward to returning to enjoy the bar. Go here! You will love it!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Romantic, Elegant, Delectable
From the time we arrived until our departure we were made to feel like royalty. The staff is very professional. We had an amazing server for the evening, a gentleman who's name I couldn't catch. The food is fresh, cooked perfectly, and flavored amazingly. I'm jealous of those who live closer and can experience this phenomenal food and service more often. We live over 2 hours away so we can not frequent this place, but we will be back.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
You Must Go!!
We found Frankie's online searching for a different place to eat. We are about 45 minutes away. We read the reviews and the menu and decided this was a place to try. We were not only happy with out decision, but thrilled with the place! Our waiter was perfect. He was warm and friendly, extremely knowledgable but not too obtrusive. We will definitely be back and will tell our friends and family. If you love Italian food, don't miss this one!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and service was outstanding. Friendly atmosphere. A little pricey but worth every penny. It is nice to go out to eat and be able to hold a conversation without having to scream
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
My daughter and I enjoyed a great evening! We made reservations through open table for Ladies Night. It was extra special because of the special Martini's and the fun Holiday Shopping event that was going on too! The hostess, waitstaff - everyone was great and attentive to us. The dining room is decorated so nice for the holiday season - it was a great night out!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We Had a Wonderful Evening!
Hello, Frankies~~ We had a great night out with our family on Friday night at your restaurant. The food and service were fabulous! We wil be back! Bryan and Mary Durkin
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing Soup of the Day!
I sat at the bar and enjoyed a spectacular meal, starting with by far one of the best soups I have had, Chicken Barley... It was amazing, the sever (bar tender Annette) was outstanding, engaging and professional at each interaction. I had the Salmon special which also was very good...
Thank you, I will be back!
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another outstanding meal !
I came back, hoping that the soup would still be Chicken Barley, it wasn't, so I settled for Grilled Octopus, Wow was I surprised, I asked Annette the Server / Bar Tender for grilled calamari, since I prefer it over the breaded deep fried calamari, she indicated that they served grilled octopus! I said, sure why not, I also had the seafood risotto which was also very good! The ambiance in the bar for dinner was exceptional and I would highly recommend it to everyone!
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Can't get here often enough
Will special order as the wait staff suggested should the menu not include your fav. Told to make sure it is called ahead and it will b waiting for u. Flavorful meal, excellent staff, pleasant owner. Had the bass but tried wife's swordfish & fell in love. Also enjoyed the hanger steak - a must for any meat lover!
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place had great food and service was great! I definitley would eat here again.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We'll this evening Frankie's was packed! slipped into a seat at the bar beside a regular Bob who was enjoying a glass of Red wine and Escargots in large mushroom tops, he was thoroughly enjoying them and recommended them to me.
This evening the Soup of the Day was a Chicken Noddle with (Egg noodles) I order the Soup and a Glass of Simi Cab and sat back to enjoy the ambiance of Frankie's which is Outstanding, the staff are excellent professionals all around. The Chicken Noddle Soup was outstanding! I really enjoyed the Soup and followed by the mussels was all I could eat this evening. The sauce the mussels are in is exceptional! I had to get an order of bread to soak up some of the sauce it was just amazing.
