The Santoro Family has been in the food service industry since 1988 through their casual restaurant Frankie’s Beef & Pasta in Oak Lawn and Frankie’s Catering for off site events. From our famous robust homemade Italian sausage and meatballs to our house-made pastas and sauces to our decadent imported Italian desserts, we strive for perfection in our kitchen and have raised the bar high for our service standards. Our customers are treated like guests in the Santoro family’s home and our purpose is not only to make them feel wined and dined, but also pampered. Our chef - born, raised and schooled in his homeland of Italy and with experience in some of the most renowned fine dining establishments in the US and Europe, has found his passion in life in cooking and has brought this passion to each one of his dishes. He maintains a consistent authenticity which has won us rave reviews in the local news media as well as a following among our guests.

    Best service in a long long time. Noise level at the end of the meal forced us to leave before the 1 hr. 45 min. limit, costing the restaurant four lost desserts. Almost every mussels failed to open.

    I like sitting in booths. All they have are tabes. It’s clean and waiters are attentive. Our waitress was good. Pleasant. We got a small plate of rigatoni with vodka when one of our entrees came out incorrect. That was delicious. The sauce is to die for. It’s a bustling restaurant. Most of the wait staff is right on top of things. They help each other. I like the restaurant but I don’t like the open table experience.

    Frankie’s was absolutely amazing! The staff was friendly and patient, knowledgeable and sweet and offered perfect recommendations. I am particularly difficult when it comes to going out to eat. I enjoy cooking and prefer it. Dinner at Frankie’s for my 50th birthday was the best choice my friends and I made! I don’t normally write reviews because honestly I rarely go out but this place deserves it!

    In times when staffing is a major issue everywhere Frankies did an amazing job. I saw only 2 servers on the floor with every table seated and thought how difficult that must be. Being married to a chef, I know 2 servers is never enough, however, we received exceptional service and were pleasantly surprised at how well the two servers managed the entire floor. Our food, filet raviolis, cranberry salad, wild salmon and petite filet were all served in a timely matter and were hot and delicious. And last but not least, the special spritz of the night was very refreshing start to our night on this hot day.
