Italian
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.

Unbelievably high prices no salad comes with entrees for the high price of entree you would expect a salad. And they charge you a covid price to dine in their restaurant $2.00 & 3.50 to dine outside. What the . That is absurd.

Wild caught salmon dinner is outstanding. Grouper was excellent as well. Tent seating was spacious, and staff worked hard to minimize effects of distance from kitchen. Hope they can keep open long into colder weather with heaters.

I booked a reservation for our 10 year wedding anniversary based off the recommendations from the guys at work. It was an awesome experience, even with all of the Covid restrictions the entire staff was courteous and willing to accommodate. I would strongly recommend Frankies to all friends and family.
