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.

    My family and I came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The place was set nice lights dimmed and music low. The food was outstanding and the service was great. Price for 4 adults was acceptable for the food and drinks we had. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It had a very nice atmosphere for dining.

    As usual a great meal at our favorite restaurant. We love when we can squeeze in a date night at Frankie’s. Frankie always makes you feel like family. Travis is the best server and always helps us with the hard decisions - which wine tonight or which special? Angela does an awesome time making the restaurant look perfect.

    First time there and had heard a lot about it so expectations were high. A little underwhelming and not at the top of my Italian restaurants. Venison special was just ok. A little overpriced for the two little chops that lacked flavor and were a bit tough mixed with some tender. Would maybe try it again but order something more Italian to try your sauce. Waiter was great.
