About the restaurant
The Santoro Family has been in the food service industry since 1988. We renovated AND re-branded almost one year ago in May of 2023. We created a NEW CONCEPT we call MODERN CASUAL CHIC...The new name is Frankie's Since 1988 as an ode to our original restaurant on the Southside of Chicago.

No longer a fine dining white tablecloth restaurant. Our new vibe is energetic music, vibrant craft cocktails homemade pastas, authentic Southern Italian style pizzas (from our new Marra Forni oven) and most popular dishes, such as Ciambotta (sausage & peppers), meatballs, Alaskan wild king salmon, Chicken "limone" with a lemon butter & capers sauce amongst others.

Our updated menu is a combination of old classics from the past 15 years in Tinley Park and new items with the same wonderful service guests have come to know and love from Frankie's.

We absolutely enjoyed our food and drinks. We made it for the special celebration of the 3 year anniversary and they did a phenomenal job as always. We ordered the special lobster and crab ravioli. It was spectacular. A little more butter than I would’ve liked but choosing not to dip the ravioli in it worked out perfectly. We order a couple apps, artichoke and rice balls (can’t remember the dish name). They were very good. My husband ordered the risotto with chicken. Also very good. Because we are hooked on bread pudding we got the toffee bread pudding with a scoop of salted Carmel gelato and it was fantastic! Drinks there are the smoked old fashions. Our server Kim was fabulous and Joe and Tom are always so welcoming and kind when we do come. Last but not least, Roo! Impeccable memory this young lady has. Not only will she remember your name but also your drink. Such a great addition to our community. We look forward to celebrating every year with you guys. Cheers to another year!

As always it was a great experience! If we could move in and just rent a table to eat every day the world would be a better place. We love Gina, Kelly and the whole team.

We had a great experience at Mousa Greek Taverna! The food and drink pairing were excellent, the service was fantastic, and the music, volume, and ambiance was perfect. This was our first time at Mousa, but we will definitely be returning for future occasions.
