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
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.
Frankie’s is a staple here in Tinley. Food is always top notch as well as the service. Specials here are always phenomenal and fresh. I appreciate the scratch kitchen because my wife is gluten free, so they always fix her something exceptional. Frankie, is a great host & Carrie is our favorite server. Ask for her, you won’t be disappointed.
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.
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.
The wait staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable, they make you feel like you’re eating at home with the family. Frankie always makes his rounds and is a pleasure to talk to every time we dine here. By far the best Italian restaurant with the best ambiance outside downtown Chicago!
We are from out of state and had no idea what Frankie's would be like, but it was one of our best dinners in IL. that we had. Party of 6 and all ages, Frankie's delivered great service, cocktails, and dinner. It will be the first place we eat on our next trip to IL. Thank you Frankie's for a great holiday dinner with my family!
We are regulars here at Frankie's. We throughly enjoy dining here. We usually have Travis, but Carrie has taking great care of us as well. We sometimes dine at the bar with Brittany who is a joy as well. Whoever has taking care of us always does a great job. I have to acknowledge this because you rarely see it, but Frankie is always around making people feel comfortable and welcomed. His sister, Angela setup our baby shower and was just wonderful and accommodating. Great food, beautifully decorated restaurant & wonderful staff makes it a must stop once a week for us. Cheers
