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.

We were seated promptly,but had to ask for water and bread after about 10 minutes. Drinks were brought promptly. Wine service, please train your servers to remove the foil covering the cork before trying to remove it

My wife and I have dined at Frankie’s a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and service top notch. At the prices charged, find the dining experience to be an extreme value.

Once again we had a great date night dinner at Frankie’s tonight. We have been trying different dishes the last few times we have been there. Tonight the grilled baby octopus, chicken vesuvio and maiala parmigiana did not disappoint. Of course limoncello is always a great way to end the meal too. Thanks again to Frankie, Travis and the rest of the staff for a great night out.

One of the suburbs best kept secrets as Frankies restaurant never fails to deliver. Dinner menu is spot on and they also offer nightly chefs specials that are tasty gems. Never fail to impress us.

We try to go to Frankie's about once a month. This time we were seated at a table for 2 in an alcove by the bar. There were people standing behind us and the waitress struggled to get by them with our drinks and food. If they try to seat us there again, we will not take the table.

As always, Frankie’s provided a wonderful and beautiful atmosphere. Service was amazing. The food exceeded our expectations. I brought two colleagues who had never been toFrankie’s. They loved the atmosphere, personal attention by your staff that we received and the food. Thank you again for a another wonderful dining experience.
