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.

This is an amazing, family owned gem! I ordered something completely different than my usual orders and it was the best meal I’ve had. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!

The food was fantastic and was a generous portion. The service was very good, the staff was there to check on the meal, serve coffee, or a cocktail if you wanted one. We had a reservation and they seated us without any wait. Overall, we had a great evening at Frankie's, we will return for another great dining experience.

Once again the service at Frankie's was outstanding. Travis our waiter was friendly, helpful and attentive. We had reservations at 6:30. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated immediately. Frankie stopped by the table to say hello and make sure our drink orders had been taken. My wife had the linguine and meatballs. The menu described the meatballs as miniature but they looked full sized. I ordered the sea bass with potatoes and vegetables. Travis recommended I get it with lemon caper butter and he was right, the butter added an extra dimension to the flavor. Frankie’s is our favorite restaurant in the south suburbs.
