We were staying at a nearby hotel and saw that Frank's Italian Restaurant was top rated for the Van Buren area. It was right next door to our hotel so we decided to walk over and order a pizza to go. We were very pleased with the selection and the quality of the food. They provided us with plates, napkins,... More

Went here with colleagues for dinner. Not impressed. The pasta is mushy, sauce watery and bland. Tried someone's chicken vesuvius, bleh. I may be biased growing up in Chicago with a grama straight from Italy, but this was not what I expect of an Italian restaurant. Maybe the locals don't know good italian food.

Frank's special is very rich but very tasty and the Chicken Scalopini was light, lemony and very well prepared. First restaurant around that plays some good music. Wish they would stick with...

The Chicken Abate (not sure of spelling) was very good, well prepared and good sized portion, wait staff attentive and knowledgeable. Restaurant does not serve alcohol. 10% discount if you stay at the Best Western next door (show room key)

Frank's was recommended while we were staying at the hear by Best Western. Since we have eaten both lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed. Food and prices are great and the service, friendly and attentive. Love the music and casual comfortable decor.

Whether you want a quiet romantic Dinner or just a quick in and out lunch or supper Frank's is the place for you. You can't beat the bread mixed with the oil and tableside ingredients and the menu is fabulous.

First, I'm not Italian and only know what I like... The service was great, the food was fresh, the bread and dipping oil was delicious!! I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan. Very tasty, would have preferred the spaghetti to not be so soft... but a great dish! My husband had the Italian sausage dish with peppers and onions. He was able... More

Frank's always serves fresh and authentic Italian food. My favorite is the Stromboli, but it is all good! The atmosphere is so nice and relaxing, Frank Sinatra music, etc. we love it!
