About Frankie's Ristorante
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.

Frankie's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
We do not live in the area but had a wake close by. I booked it purely by the Yelp reviews which were great. Our server was awesome and so knowledgable. We were greeted right away by the host who was very nice and friendly and went around checking on everyone's table. We got the chef recommended appetizer (sausage and peppers) which was delicious. My husband had a venison dish and I had a sea bass dish. Both were fantastic! I appreciated not being rushed, I felt that it made the dining experience that much more enjoyable. Sadly we were too full for dessert. Maybe next time we will skip the appetizer and save room for dessert!
We love Frankie's and this date night dinner did not disappoint. Our waiter Travis was wonderful and Frankie is always a great host. This is a great neighborhood restaurant for drinks and dinner. Our dinner choices were delicious and ended the evening with some limoncello. Looking forward to doing another cooking class too here hopefully. Give them a try for catering too -- we have always been pleased with the food for parties at our home too.
I took my cousin here for her birthday. Staff was wonderful and food was good but pricy, they charge city prices and I would say while the overall quality was good, it's not quite up to city standards. Would go again for a special occasion. Also I consider this place very traditional American Italian food.
Frankie is the best. Always treats you like family. The whole staff does. Debbie and Travis always remember us and give us great service. Love the place. The only problem I would have at all is the prices are getting a little high for an italian restaurant. it is very good so I guess it is worth it but there are a lot of really good italian restaurants in the area that are not as expensive. I go to other italian restaurants but still always comeback to Frankies even with the prices. It feels like home and that is how you are treated.
Simply the best restaurant in the southwest suburbs. This is a family run venue and they take the time to make you feel like you are part of the family. Even the staff is very friendly and very attentive to your every need. The bar is fun and they have a nice sized banquet room for small groups. We had our 25th wedding anniversary party here a few years ago and everyone loved it. Simply the BEST!!!!!!!
Fantastic evening, with excellent food and cocktails and even better service. The specials are always fantastic, but if you're looking on the main menu, my go-to items are lasagna with vodka sauce or chicken parmesan with vodka sauce, baked. Great atmosphere, always leave happy!
Loved everything! Ambiance was great, as was the service! Most of us ordered off of the specials, as Chef Gaetano always has something great prepared! Finished the evening with complementary limoncello. All of my guests raved about their meals! We will continue to have our girls nights here!
We absolutely love Frankie's! It is our go to for any special occasion and the food is on point every time! They have such great specials, that we hardly ever order from the regular menu. My father turned us onto Frankie's and we've been eating there for a couple years now. Frankie is a wonderful host, we feel like family from the minute we walk in the door.
