    Quite possibly the best tasting Pasta I’ve had to date. Thoroughly impressed. Stellar Butternut as well as Gnocchi pasta dishes.

    Can't say enough about Frank's simple and perfect dishes. So satisfying and so much love in them. Spaghetti Limone and Gnocchi were remarkable. Will be back to try everything. The wine selection is top notch, the service was fun and warm and we were so well taken care of. Such a special vibe. Tables close to one another, it feels like everyone is experiencing it together. Food, people, perfection. Will be back. Thank you, Frank.

    If you miss your reservation, you get to sit at a long table in the bar. This happened to the two parties that were late. Food was good, though a little salty. Friendly staff.

    Big fan. Been going to Frank for years. Food is just as good as ever. Service is great. Only issue is that restaurant is small and they pack people in. Basically on top of your neighbors and hard to get in and out of table. Better for smaller group than big (though they do have big party table up front which is great).

    While the food was good and the service was also fair, my friends ordered me a piece of birthday cake and were really upset that The Smile charged us for it on our bill. They wish they were warned, because then they would have asked for a menu and chosen something we all liked.

    Wonderful staff. Hostess was super sweet and took care of us with "a good table". Jessie at the bar was accommodating once he warmed up to me a bit. The gentleman waiter was very pleasant, explained everything perfectly, did not rush us and always had a smile on his face. The food was glorious - gnocchi special with truffles ADD crispy egg was to die for! The environment/decor here and at Lil Frankies is similar but i think I prefer Lil Frankies because its bigger (more seating options) and feels warmer/more cozy. Overall, a wonderful Sunday spent with great food and great friends!
