This was the restaurants 10 yr anniversary, and it easy see why they are doing so well. As an Italian who has been to Italy numerous times, Frankies restaurant gets it right every time!
Excellent food and service. You are part of the family here.
Always an awesome meal at Frankie's plus everyone is so friendly and attentive to every little detail. It's our #1
Always a wonderful experience all the way around at Frankie’s!!!!
I have dined at Frankies several times and have not been disappointed. The meal choices are great and has vegetarian options as well. The wait staff has always been friendly and knowledgeable about menu.
I will highly recommend to others.
Very good family owned and you can tell
Food was great. Dinner did not include soup or salad which was surprising. Service was excellent
Amazing food, incredibly friendly staff, wonderful atmosphere. We can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend!
I liked the fact that I could order off the menu. My eggplant parm. Was great
Great service. Great dirty martini . We always have the muscles for our appetizer. Clean restrooms.
Frankie’s never disappoints! We brought it friends for a birthday celebration and everything was perfect!
We’ve become semi-regulars and brought neighbor friends for their first visit. We had a great time, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The Wednesday night buy one get one pasta makes for a real value.
This is an awesome place. The service and food were amazing! Thank you Frankie's for making this a very special Birthday for me.
My husband and I were out and about, running errands, and decided to grab dinner. We're not super familiar with the area so we searched for restaurants and ultimately decided on Frankie's. It's located in a strip mall so we figured it would be fairly causal, but the interior design and ambiance was a little more on the fancy side. Not super fancy, but fancy enough that I felt under-dressed in my yoga pants, t-shirt and hoodie! None-the-less we continued inside and were seated within 10 minutes of arriving. We sat at the bar and had a drink while waiting for our table. The hostess and bartender were very friendly and attentive, but sadly that's where our mostly positive experience ended. The rest of the evening was mediocre at best. Our server was friendly, but not very attentive. In fact, we only saw him two other times after taking our order and one of those times we had to flag him down and the other was to bring us our check. Our food was delivered by runners, which was fine, but I wanted to order a glass of wine to drink with my dinner, but never had the opportunity to do so. In addition, our water glasses sat empty for most of the night as well. We had to keep flagging down runners and/or bussers to come fill our water. By the time our food arrived, I gave up on ordering the wine because I figured I'd be half-way done or done with my meal by the time I'd get it. The food was just okay. I had the Sea Bass special and my husband had the risotto. The texture of the sea bass was mushy, and it was bland. The risotto had good texture, but was also bland. Overall I liked the ambiance, despite being under-dressed, so I might go back to have a drink at the bar for happy hour if I happened to be in the area, but not sure I'd dine there again. That being said I usually give places 2 chances. Everyone else seemed to be enjoying themselves so maybe it was just an off night for us. I'd say try it for yourself, you might have better luck.
Frankie's continues to be the best upscale dining on the south side. The wait staff , bartenders , hosts , chef and the wonderful Santuro family provide a family like feel that can't be beat.
Get together with friends we hadn't seen in some time. The atmosphere couldn't have been better. Service was over the top!! I asked for something that wasn't on the menu and they were able to meet my request.
Food is Very Good! Wine selection...Excellent Italians..love the old school, neighborhood feel of this place. And from the hostess, to the waitstaff, to the owner who stops at your table and asks about your family... you are made to feel very special!
I really like this restaurant - great food with a lean towards Italian. Really a gem!
Fabulous as usual! Chef never disappoints and the service is top notch!
The food was excellent. This place is way too expensive. $18 for pasta is a little pricey.
I had the salmon, my husband had spinach ravioli. Both were excellent! We also had salads, and the veggies and salads were wonderfully fresh.
The food was excellent as was the service. We will definitely be back!! Previously my only experience was with their catering but I can't wair to return!!
Everything about our experience at Frankie’s was exceptional as always!!
Always good food and service. Greeted by all the staff during dinner! Like a family dinner. Always happy here
We were greeted by the owner as soon as we sat down. The server took our drink and appetizer orders and made sure we had warm bread quickly. Frankie's is our favorite Italian restaurant in the suburbs. My wife tried the rigatoni with Bolognese sauce for the first time and it is one of her new favorites. There was so much meat in the sauce she did not need to add meat balls . Veal Parmigiana was not on the menu the night we were there but the kitchen accommodated me and it was delicious. I was given two veal patties and linguini. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Frankie came by a second time to chat and make sure everything was to our liking.
Frankie’s is our go to restaurant. Whether it’s date night, bringing our kids, or coming with friends. Food and service is always on point. Our only problem is we don’t know what to get sometimes because everything is so fresh and good. Frankie always makes a point and say hello. We always come back wanting more.
It was all good!!
First Time there - did not disappoint. Would recommend to anyone and will be back sooner than later. I had the Gnocchi and Wife had the ravioli - both were really good.
Very nice place for special occasions or if you just want a nice night out. Service was good. Food was good and we also met the owner.
We went to Frankie’s for dinner to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday. Our server, Ryan, was very friendly and courteous and made our dining experience that much more pleasurable. As always, the food was delicious, and so was the ambience. Their chicken parmesan is out of this world! This is one of our favorite spots to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. We absolutely love Frankie’s! Also, we do appreciate that the owner does walk around and greet his customers and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. It shows that he truly cares about his place of business and the people he serves.
Food is excellent and plating is attractive. Quiet even though usually packed with people. Great service also.
Great service and wonderful food. Will be going back.
The owner made an effort to check in on tables. What a nice guy! Food was excellent. Highly recommend. Waitress not the friendliest, but owner makes up for it!
Great place. I've been to banquet events there and sat in the dining room. The food is always excellent and nice atmosphere. One of our favorites.
We made a last minute reservation and were greeted warmly and seated at the reservation time. The food was delicious and delivered hot by a wonderful server. Our service was phenomenal and fun. The food and the great staff keep us coming back.
We love it so much and wanted to bring our friends. They loved it too! I was a big fan of the ravioli special topped with goat cheese. I hope they consider keeping it.
It was just wonderful!!
As always, the entire staff made us feel welcome and the food was delicious. From appetizers through coffee and dessert, the meal was paced perfectly by Debbie and we all enjoyed the evening. This is the first time I’ve written a review for Frankie’s and it’s long overdue because this restaurant is at the top of my list of favorites. The food is fresh, menu selection is good and you feel good when you are there. Frankie is there most evenings greeting guests and making sure everyone is enjoying their meals. Maybe that’s one of the reasons it works on so many levels. You feel like you’re a guest in someone’s home.
