You can see my older review for the full story. If anything, Frankie's gets better with time. The menu changes with the seasons and they never rest on their laurels. 1 thing I must protest about: they took off the Fried Mozzarella Fritti & Cavatelli in Smoked Marinara off the menu!!! Come on guys!!! That being said, they have added... More

Thanks for your review! Just wanted to let you know we are putting the homemade mozzarella back on the menu. Back after popular demand! And we can always make you a custom dish, like the smoked mozzarella dish you referred to if you ask your server we'd be happy to make it happen! Hope to see you soon! More

Just love Frankie's Restaurant after this, our first visit there. We were a party of 7; old friends and new friends. The salmon with cilantro salsa was grilled perfectly. The spaghetti bolognese was excellent. Service was top notch. On a Sunday evening, the restaurant was relatively quiet and very enjoyable.

This is a great Italian in Lenox. Service was really friendly and the atmosphere was very buzzy even though it was midweek. The food was well cooked 'just like mama' (as long as mama is a good cook!). Would recommend.

We discovered Frankie's while searching for a place with good GF pasta and other Italian dishes. We've eaten there about a dozen times over the last year and have never been disappointed. The staff always greet us cordially and offer excellent service. I really appreciate their offering good (heated!) GF rolls with EVOO, so I don't have to feel jealous... More

Thanks for your kind review! So glad you discovered all of our gluten-free options. We've now expanded the selection and have gluten-free bread crumbs for chicken parmigiana, calamari fritti, mozzarella sticks and most of our homemade desserts are gluten-free. Hope to see you soon! More

Had dinner here with people from work during the week. We had a large booth in the back part of the restaurant which is down a few stairs; the bar and smaller tables are near the front entrance. Service was very good; we were greeted promptly and our waiter was friendly and attentive without being pushy. Two of us ordered... More

Very good baby clams appetizer. Wife and I both had chicken dishes which were very good. The potato layered with cheese was excellent. Service was very good.

While visiting our Peeples family in Lenox, we ate dinner at Frankie's and have all good things to say about the experience. The building is adorable, the staff attentive and the service excellent. The food was wonderful. My husband had his favorite, clams in white sauce and I had the eggplant parmesan. Both were outstanding. We particulary enjoyed a side... More

We expected lots from an evening at Frankie's based on reviews and advice from friends. Clearly, that history occurred uinder a previous chef. The ambiance is excellent; lively and warm and inviting. The food was disappointing. The veal marsala was good only for the sauce. The veal was tough and cool toward cold. The potato seemingly prepared hours before it... More

At the recommendation of our Inn's proprietor, we had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. In addition to the recommendation, we chose this restaurant because they offered gluten-free options. The service was great and the food was very good. Traditional Italian fare that did not disappoint!

Picked Frankie's mainly since it was the first restaurant we happened upon and we had a car full of hungry people. We took a chance as we normally read reviews. It's a sweet restaurant that looks like it's situated in a historic home. Beautiful wraparound deck where you can eat during the warmer months and inside it's got a very... More
