We has a reservation for 6 but decided to seat outside in the « first come first serve » area (that was empty). Although there were no other customers, staff refused to let us seat at our preferred table. Staff was so rude we decided to leave.

There were a lot of flies in the restaurant that took away from the experience because we kept having to shoo them away. Other than that, food was delicious!! I would definitely go back again.

There was a mouse that kind of ruined our dinner. The waitress was great and food good but hard to get past the mouse.

The service was exceptional - friendly and inviting, helpful and attentive without being obtrusive. The food was also excellent, we especially enjoyed the garlic bread with anchovies, even my wife who normally doesn’t enjoy anchovies raved about it. We’ll certainly return soon.

Food was just okay. I had been following the owner on Instagram and was looking forward to an amazing authentic Italian meal but the food was basic and average. Absolutely nothing special. And I was expecting the portions to be bigger for the price he charges.

We have been coming to Frank for over 20 years. We love this place. Authentic Italian - the food is absolutely incredible. Love the cozy vibe. Wine is also delicious and love the new wine policy - it allowed our wine connoisseur friend to enjoy a top notch glass of wine without paying for the whole bottle. The ONLY bummer is the noise level where we had to yell to hear each other. Part of the issue was the music. There was loud rock music playing which I don’t remember on our previous visits. Super annoying. Would rather hear some nice Sinatra. However, we will definitely be back for the food!!

Very good lunch at Frank. Our son follows him on Instagram and suggested we go. Tagliatelle, Pasta Limone, Pappardelle Ragu were all excellent. Authentic
atmosphere reminded me of Sicily

We booked this restaurant due to the menu that was on open table which showed specials for specific entrees on specific days. When we arrived we we're informed that we were wrong and that they were going to straighten out the menu with open table. Not sure if I buy that but I'm open to see if that is the case. At the very least they should have offered to honor some special to compensate us for the visit.

We were greeted by a "not so friendly" hostess who clearly didn't want to be working that day. She tried to squeeze a party of 3 at a table that barely fit 2 and told us that they use this table for 3 when they are busy. So we waited until another table opened up. Then came the service, which was less than good. We had to chase our server, who seemed more interested in talking to his fellow colleagues than waiting on us. Food = 3.5; Service = 2.5; hostess (first impressions) = 2. Would not go back with all the great restaurants in the neighborhood.

Absolutely one of my favorite places now! The Burrata was amazing and the Rigatoni was like something I’ve never tried before. Highly recommend and the ambiance is cozy.
