We were a table of 4. I was surprised and annoyed that behind us was a table of 6 or 8. Next time going during the week and hopefully it’s quieter.

Service here is abysmal. Food used to be amazing but was awful and it took an hour to prepare. Sad to see how poorly this place has become. Used to be my favorite restaurant. No more.

We had reservations for dinner at 6:30 on Saturday night April 10, 2021. We waited in a small hallway for almost 30 minutes without even being asked our name. Every time I tried to get the only waitress’ attention, she told me someone else would help me. At almost 7:00, the hostess finally asked us our name. For at least 10 minutes, we had been the last people waiting in the doorway to the very crowded restaurant with an empty table for 4 open right in front of us the entire time we waited - despite the fact that my husband and I were standing with my 92 year old father-in-law. We were finally seated at the table but our order wasn’t taken for another 30 minutes. My Caesar salad was forgotten despite several reminders and when it was finally served shortly before the entree, the dressing on it tasted like mayonnaise. I was told by the hostess that it would be removed from the bill because it was served so late, but it was on our bill. My Bronzino special was also disappointing in a tasteless brown sauce. There was a large crowd of 10 friends seated in front of us who were loud, with terrible acoustics in the small room anyway. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant with the hostess handling takeout orders. We couldn’t wait to leave. It was clear that no Pandemic precautions were being followed and the experience was terrible.

Was always one of our favorites however this time did not feel the same quality. Over a year since we have been here. Our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu. Got the wrong appetizer and only said “sorry” Had to inform him that I got pasta with my meal as he did not bring out initially. The desert was delicious . The bread was also not the same disappointing .Not a good experience .

Place was swamped with take out orders. Our 8 pm reservation resulted in a 9:10 dinner. Food is always good and a real bargain. Great to see people out but sitting on top of each other

We had a great dinner with friends at Frankie’s! This was our first time dining here and it was an awesome experience. The food was fantastic as well as the service - they truly care about their customers and their experience.

We are excited to have found a terrific Italian establishment, not far with great food and service! Thanks to everyone there!

While the food was excellent, will wait to go back as the Covid protocols were the worst I have experienced anywhere. The tables were close together and just about every one was full and the place was packed with people waiting. A group of 10 showed up in the middle and we even ended up being asked to switch tables (fine with other than how jammed in everyone was). Pretty insane and I am pretty relaxed normally when dining right now. Will be back, but only for takeout in the near future.

A small, but nice neighborhood restaurant. The food is absolutely great and the service was quite good. I highly recommend this “hidden gem”, and I would also suggest a reservation. There was a line waiting when we left.

The shrimp and scallop caesar flatbread was very good, and a special that evening of baked tortelloni in cream sauce was fantastic. My wife liked her bleu cheese gnocchi as well. Note that these items did not hold up well as leftovers, so eat as much as you can there while it is as delicious as it's meant to be!

We ate outside because of Covid. They have a heater that kept us nice and warm on a very chilly night. Food was excellent. I had the squid with spicy red sauce and the orchiette both of which were excellent. I’d highly recommend them. Frankie was a very nice guy and happy to talk with us.
