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.

    Outstanding service!!! From our server to the owner constantly/appropriately checking in. Mussels appetizer: cooked perfectly, although, the sauce lacked the flavor punch I was hoping for. The prime pork chop special had excellent flavors but the chop was over cooked which made it tough. The rigatoni dish needed more to make the flavor complex, such as, prosciutto and a vegetable. While not a bad dish, it simply became boring without a variety of flavor(s). Wine list is fairly priced.

    Every food we’ve tried has been excellent! My husband loves the risotto and every pasta has been delicious. The salads are very unique and we try a different one each time. When we don’t do a salad we have their soup. Every course comes out at exactly the right temperature. We are usually so full we can’t eat dessert, but when we do we order the chocolate lava cake. Every employee is helpful, courteous and efficient. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Seating was on time--Great server---prices at the table were much higher than what was on the web site---$230 for 2 at a local Italian rest. w/tip was way too much---Good luck Frankie"s

    Frankie's RistoranteResponded on December 31, 2022HI Linda, the prices on our website match the table menu 100%. You may be referring to the" Specials of the Night Menu" and being New Year's weekend Chef Calandrini does higher end items which customers look forward to on the holidays such as the fish and meat specials. We appreciate your feedback. Happy New Year!

Prices are fair and the old fashioned here is top notch! Luis and of course Frankie are great hosts. We love bringing friends here because we know it will always be a guarantee.

    The absolute best as usual! We were celebrating a birthday and he was made to feel very special. The burrata and filet stuffed ravioli appetizers are amazing! We had lemon chicken, lobster stuffed ravioli and fish. All were so fresh and perfectly prepared. We finished off with the tiramisu. Food was so good we also ordered some extras to bring home!

    Frankie’s NEVER disappoints! The food is always top notch and the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure our experience is amazing. They have handled any food allergies in our party with extreme care, given us amazing wine suggestions, wowed us with food and desserts,and more. We brought our twelve year old daughter for the first time recently. She can be a somewhat picky eater and saw things on the menu that she liked but not everything in it. Our waitress was so patient and talked to her about the things she liked and then created a more simplistic dish just for her. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Frankie himself is always there when we go, and you can tell that he puts his all into this restaurant, and it shows. It’s our favorite!
