I originally made reservations for 2 but my husband surprised me and changed the reservation to 9. It was my birthday and he invited our daughters & their family. We had a great night and our waiter, believe his name was Andrew was a great waiter. Good personality and very informative about the menu.
We have eaten there many times and look forward to going there again soon. Thank you!!

Great food, service, and atmosphere. It’s was crowed so the noise level was a bit high. I will return soon, that’s for sure

It was a Birthday dinner for my wife. There were several other celebrants and we not only enjoyed great meals and wonderful service but a social event with the other April Fools Day celebrants.

Delicious chicken cutlet dishes (parmigiana, francese). Nice bread basket, but the sugar-powdered rolls seem to have changed: They used to be more like zeppole - fried dough -- but now seem to be baked pizza dough rolls. And despite being told by the waitstaff for years that the spinach and broccoli sides are sauteed, they actually seem to be steamed or boiled with garlic and oil added after cooking. Still, a very good restaurant with very good food and a friendly staff. We've been going there for years.

Food was Ok. The server Josh was horrible. Took forever to order then never checked on us 1 time in an hr.
My wifes gluten free pasta looked horrendous. Like it was left to boil way past what it should be.
Manager was great and comped my wifes meal.
They looked confused because there was a show, I would think they would be used to it as i am sure its nit the 1st time there was a show while they were serving dinner.

Being from Poughkeepsie, I haven’t been to Little Italy in years. We were a group of four and ordered the Zuppa Di Pesce family style. It was delectable. Our server was very good. We liked the dining area ambiance, especially the photos on display. As the designated driver, I appreciated the reserved loading area out in front of the restaurant. We will come back again sooner.

This was my second time dining at Frank Guido's. The first time I had dinner there the service time was unacceptable. I gave them a pass as the restaurant was very busy. However, when we went on the 19th of March for another birthday dinner, the service time was even worse. We sat down around 6:15/6:20 and did not leave until 8. We waited about an hour for our meals to come. I was there with my husband the two young children. It was unbelievable how long we had to wait. Once the food came we just packed it all up and left. The only saving grace was our waitress Jessica that was really great and played and talked with our kids and brought them toys. I don't think we will visit this restaurant again.

Visited on St. Patrick's Day to celebrate a birthday. The overall noise level is ALWAYS through the roof. Not a quiet place to be had to enjoy a dinner especially if you are dropping almost $100 for two. Food was great. Service was great. Just far too noisy.

Totally Awesome! This is our favorite local place for Italian Cuisine. The food is always superb as well as the service, and the portions and prices are very fair. The Guido Family goes out of their way to insure customer satisfaction to a tee. Can't say enough about this place. We've had just about every entree offered and found each and every one of them absolutely delicious. Five Stars all the way!

We LOVE Frank Guido's Little Italy! Every time we come we wish it was here in Oceanside where we live. Whenever we come upstate we always make it a point to go there for dinner. The food is a treasure to behold. We savor every mouthful! Love you Frank Guido's! Also, we're big Soprano fans so we love to look at all those great pics, especially of Tony (James Gandolfini).

Had a fantastic time at Frank Guido's. The food was excellent (the Chicken Marsala was a bit sweeter than I initially anticipated), the wine was great, and the dessert was excellent as well. The staff was very kind, and greeted me on a first name basis which made me feel great!

I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Kingston!

Had s reservation for 7pm the place was so crowded there was barely anywhere to stand and our table wasn’t ready at 7. It wasn’t ready until 745. It was very loud like i said it was so crowded people were bumping into everyone it was so loud we couldn’t hear the waiter calling names for tables. Maybe you should get a grip on your reservation policies. If someone makes a reservation they expect a reservation at their time. I understand things happen but don’t make more reservations than you can handle. Food was great service was great.

We made reservations at 5:00 p.m. before a 7:00 p.m. show at UPAC, across the street. They took walk-ins before seating us. As an older couple we seemed to be lost in the system, with kitchen getting out orders for larger parties first. Our entrees didn't show until 6:00 p.m. We had to ask three times to get bill in time to be out by 6:30 p.m. Food was adequate for a theater menu (reduced number of options so that the kitchen can push out the orders quickly). Ambience in the brick building was very good. Excellent location to UPAC. But next time we'll eat elsewhere before the show.

Great friendly place with amazingly attentive staff!! I had zuppa de pesce, best ever. Wife has Chicken Parm that was out of this world. Daughter had shrimp over pasta, and Grandson had pizza. Everyone finished everything, we had a small piece of Chicken parm left over that I enjoyed next day. All of this and my meal was free since it was my birthday. Best Italian food anywhere. Thanks to the Guido family for their generosity!!

Despite reservations and arriving 5 min early, was not seated for 40 minutes. Had to wait in the very crowded bar scene and subject my kids to foul mouthed, drunken people. No apology, no acknowledgement. Just that they were waiting for people to leave. Obviously overbooked and prioritizing volume to quality of service. Was a bit rushed by waitress. Not a great experience.

Good Italian food at moderate prices. The ambiance is a step above casual but not where you feel uncomfortable in a nice pair of jeans. Business lunch crowd and happy hour scene. The bread basket assortment is a favorite with my family :) as is the chicken Marsala, chicken parmigiana and eggplant Parmigiana. Close to UPAC.

Food was fine, but nothing outstanding. Service was horrible. I mentioned something to the hostess, nicely. Told her it was our first time there. She was upset and said something to the server. Nothing improved. It was also extremely loud.
