Absolutely the best Italian food in all of Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Better than any of the overrated Italian spots in South Philly. Unquestionably the best around

Ate here for Mother’s Day and my biggest disappointment was that the pizza oven was out of commission - that made ordering for the kids very difficult. The tables were also way to close together for comfort.

The food was a mixed bag. I had a steak which was awesome but the pasta dishes were very watery and lacked flavor.

Service by the support staff was excellent - the water glasses and bread bowl were always filled.

It is also crazy lively and loud in the restaurant.

Been here many times and usually order the veal parm. This time I ordered the veal saltumbuca. Very disappointed. Veal was floating in this greasy gravy. The substitute for spinach was lame as well.

Great service! Heaters outside work great. Appetizers were the best we ever had! Veal parmigiana and Sunday dinner were excellent! Veal In white wine sauce was a little bland but still good. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our dinner here— just remember it’s BYOB and I had forgotten to bring wine. They will not have any alcohol available so pls bring your own. The food was very good, pasta a little overdone, but overall good portions, and it had a nice intimate family vibe. There’s an outdoor area for seating as well. The restaurant can get quite crowded, as well as the parking lot, so it’s best to dine early. By 7:30/8pm there is a long line of people waiting for tables on the weekend, as it’s a small restaurant. Price is quite reasonable and service is excellent and friendly. Definitely a little gem in Berwyn and we will be back!

Service here is abysmal. Food used to be amazing but was awful and it took an hour to prepare. Sad to see how poorly this place has become. Used to be my favorite restaurant. No more.

We had reservations for dinner at 6:30 on Saturday night April 10, 2021. We waited in a small hallway for almost 30 minutes without even being asked our name. Every time I tried to get the only waitress’ attention, she told me someone else would help me. At almost 7:00, the hostess finally asked us our name. For at least 10 minutes, we had been the last people waiting in the doorway to the very crowded restaurant with an empty table for 4 open right in front of us the entire time we waited - despite the fact that my husband and I were standing with my 92 year old father-in-law. We were finally seated at the table but our order wasn’t taken for another 30 minutes. My Caesar salad was forgotten despite several reminders and when it was finally served shortly before the entree, the dressing on it tasted like mayonnaise. I was told by the hostess that it would be removed from the bill because it was served so late, but it was on our bill. My Bronzino special was also disappointing in a tasteless brown sauce. There was a large crowd of 10 friends seated in front of us who were loud, with terrible acoustics in the small room anyway. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant with the hostess handling takeout orders. We couldn’t wait to leave. It was clear that no Pandemic precautions were being followed and the experience was terrible.

Was always one of our favorites however this time did not feel the same quality. Over a year since we have been here. Our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu. Got the wrong appetizer and only said “sorry” Had to inform him that I got pasta with my meal as he did not bring out initially. The desert was delicious . The bread was also not the same disappointing .Not a good experience .

Place was swamped with take out orders. Our 8 pm reservation resulted in a 9:10 dinner. Food is always good and a real bargain. Great to see people out but sitting on top of each other

We had a great dinner with friends at Frankie’s! This was our first time dining here and it was an awesome experience. The food was fantastic as well as the service - they truly care about their customers and their experience.

We are excited to have found a terrific Italian establishment, not far with great food and service! Thanks to everyone there!

While the food was excellent, will wait to go back as the Covid protocols were the worst I have experienced anywhere. The tables were close together and just about every one was full and the place was packed with people waiting. A group of 10 showed up in the middle and we even ended up being asked to switch tables (fine with other than how jammed in everyone was). Pretty insane and I am pretty relaxed normally when dining right now. Will be back, but only for takeout in the near future.
