    We were seated promptly. Server was very efficient and had a great sense of humor. Found the portion size to be smaller than it used to be, but I guess that’s the same everywhere now. Just expected a little more for the price. Overall was a great atmosphere and service was great!

    My mum and I went to F and G for lunch the other day for the first time and what a treat it was! First contact with our waiter, Ryan, was wonderful. Knowledgeable and approachable, he recommended the perfect meal for me , an Asian Noodle dish that I loved. (Note, it was a bit oily, but I don’t mind that, the flavour was spot on) My mum had the Carbonara and which was lovely and creamy and delicious. There was some construction going on which was a bit noisy for short bursts of time. We didn’t let it affect our time and the noise stopped quickly. All in all, it was a cheerful experience filled with happy moments of connection and a delicious meal.

    The food was great however the server wasn’t very pleasant. Upon asking for a seat closer to the window because it’s so dark in there and I had my baby with me, she was almost rude about it and made it feel like it was a big deal though the bottom section was empty upon arrival. It just wasn’t a very personable experience. Felt very brushed off and like we were burdening her the entire time.

    We enjoyed our main meals and desserts very much. The food came to our table very quickly and the server was wonderful in checking our table frequently for anything we required. The atmosphere was relaxing and the noise level was perfect for us to be able carry on a conversation. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant in future.

    Server forgot to order our starter. And then did not return for 30-40 minutes while waiting for mains. Seemed as though she forgot to enter our entire order as tables that sat after us and ordered well after received there meals before us. When the food finally arrived it was good, but the server never said anything about forgetting our starter or the food taking a long time.

    Love Nona’s lasagna but tried the chicken carbonara for my second visit. It was loaded with mushroom and chicken and the sauce was delicious. Bread was very fresh we’ll be back soon. Great menu! Very busy but worth the wait.

    We are long time regular customers. Frank and Gino’s has deteriorated over the years. The few vegetarian options they had (vegetable panini, pasta dish) are gone on the new smaller menu. Service at dinner is slow. Our last two dinner experiences were disappointing. We’ll continue to go for the lunch menu but are probably finished going there for dinner. End of an era.

    We have visited this restaurant many times and the food has been good. Last night was an exception. The pasta was served almost cold and the flat bread pizza was just not good. This was my wife's birthday so this was very disappointing. I ordered the spagetti and meatballs and the meatballs were cold. The pasta luke warm. A disappointing experience. Not sure if we will return.

    It started horribly. While telling the waitress our orders she literally looked at her watch twice. Sorry for taking up your time. Our appetizer came about 5 minutes before our main. My steak was cold but overcooked. Supposed to be medium rare it was at least medium well. Big difference. The steak was sooooo tough and fatty with absolutely NO SEASONING ON IT. It said right in the menu that the steak is cooked with a special blend of spices. Not true obviously. My daughters “pulled pork” looked like a bun with pasta sauce on it. Very strange and not even remotely tasty. My wife’s meal wasn’t bad but it was so spicy she couldn’t eat it. There was nothing in the menu indicating the dish was supposed to be spicy and the waitress did not mention it being spicy. Terrible terrible meal. $117 with no drinks. Terrible. I tipped the waitress $23 and she barely responded. I wasn’t looking for an applause or anything but almost no response from her was a joke. Terrible food and terrible service. It was my wife and mine’s 13 anniversary and the meal was the worst part of our day by far. Frank and Gino’s used to be a great place to eat. I’ll never spend my money there again.
