We love the bread and oil. The sampler plate was delicious. It had manicotti,ravioli and lasagna. The salad is very good with house dressing. Their pizzas are very good too.

Just go to chili’s. No alcohol is served at this restaurant and maps give you directions to an old location. The service is mediocre with servers that want to be helpful, but speak limited English. Salads have rotten lettuce, most of the food was frozen...More

Everything is homemade, pizzas are so bug they won't fit on the table. This is the absolute best Italian food#

Frank's Italian food is pretty good. The menu has lots of choices, although I tend to order the same entrée each time I go. Fettuccine Alfredo is my favorite. It's not the best at Frank's, but it certainly beats Olive Garden!

We were just passing through and decided that we wanted more than fast food, so we tried Frank’s. My husband had the Chicken Marsala and I had the Pasta Sampler. We both had garden salads. The location and the building are very nice. The salads...More

Had a great meal. Our first visit was great. The bread and whole meal reminded my wife of her childhood. With her Italian mother and grandmother spending most of their day cooking. Wonderful memories.

Every time we have been to Franks the food is great. It never changes. You always know what to expect which is very important. The waitress was friendly and our food was fresh and it didn’t take long to get it. They play pleasant music...More
