      OK...let me start by qualifying the 5 stars.  It isn't the quality of a Little Italy or the Hill Italian restaurant.

    That being said...I rank this place at the top... read more

      Frank’s has the best bread and dipping oil. Great menu for lunch or for dinner. Pleasant atmosphere.

      Sauce was a bit bland and a bit sweet, otherwise the Manicotti was good. Mixed Salad was good. Waitress was preoccupied

      Great service, Great food, Great atmosphere to bring your love out to dine. The chicken Fred's Special was to die for. No room for dessert.

    Frank's is a very good restaurant service is great and friendly the food I think is wonderful the … More amount you receive is more than one person eat. If you have not tried them you should it a very good restaurant.

    The best Italian food restaurant ever.The waitresses could have been a little more authentic Italian, … More haha! Other than that I think your best should come to Las Vegas, NV., you would have no trouble filling a restaurant 4 times the size you have here. I would be a regular customer and or help run it.Thank you for the great food.

    A jewel of a find!After reading several reviews we decided to try for ourselves. I was leaning towards … More the pasta sampler or the cheese & spinach ravioli until we both decided on Strombolis. Which are LOADED with meats & tons of delicious cheeseFresh rolls with the most mouth-water olive oil vinaigrette for dipping (I HAD to take some home)The service was spot on.The ambiance was relaxing with classic music playing.Surprisingly affordableIt was a most enjoyable date nightWe look forward to our next visit
