Made reservations. Took 30 minutes to get a seat. Kitchen was backed up . Only seat was at bar. Flies around the bread station. Food is always good, but should only wait no more than 15 minutes with reservations. Took at least one half hour to get a salad from the time we sat down.I do not think reservations are honored. Have been a loyal customer. Unfortunately, will not return.

Soooo overcrowded! And they continued to try to add more tables. Difficult to get in and out because tables were approximately 2 feet apart.

Food and service very good, the veal was excellent. Restaurant is very small and it was booked to capacity so dining tables extremely tight. The waitresses were very accomodating and pleasant to the crowd especially considering the lack of space.

I took my daughter to Frankie's Fellini Cafe on a Sunday evening. We had reservations and were seated pretty promptly. There is no hostess stand, but it was clear that the person behind the bar was the one directing things. It took a while to get menus and to get our wine opened (BYO), but the servers were friendly. I had recently eaten at the Fellini Cafe in Newtown Square, so expected equally delicious food. Unfortunately, both of us found our meals to be on the bland side. Not bad, just not as good as we expected.

FFC has phenomenal food. Bring your own bottle of wine (or more) and let them serve you some authentic Italian food. The guys really enjoyed the veal options and the pasta was delicious.

Went and dined alone on a Monday night after an exhausting work day. BYOB is a plus and was able to have a glass of wine w dinner. Had the grilled octopus appetizer and the sea scallops in a spicy Fra Diavolo main entree. Nice friendly owner, polite staff, great food!

Frankies is always consistent. Guaranteed a good meal every time, with good reasonably priced food. Huge portions too. They have the best Lasagna I have ever had, however everything I’ve gotten from them has always been delicious.

Food is good. Typical Italian fare. Lots of red sauce options. Service was OK- server seemed overworked and stressed out. While taking our orders, he actually paused several times to observe other tables, bus boy, etc. Bus boy and girl bringing bread and refilling water glasses were working so hard. My biggest concern? Tables are so close together and having a conversation is difficult with a larger party and table. Also, the guy seated behind us was SO LOUD thoughout the entire meal. We were actually praying for his food to arrive so he would shut up. It didn't help- he just yelled and acted obnoxious with a mouth full of food. Overall, food is good and priced accordingly.

The restaurant is small, people are really close, being a small restaurant the noise of people talking is loud. I don't like being also, on top of another dinner. The Mussel was very good, but my meal was so so, My ladyfriend's meal was good for her. I don't recommend restaurants to other people, I only talk about my experience at the restaurants

The meatballs were amazing. I found the remaining food uninspiring and somewhat flavorless. The linguine with clams had no garlic, and the calamari was spicy without any zest.
