      Frank's has a good selection of pastas and we were able to stay pretty close to our plant-based diet. Good spaghetti, good service and a nice atmosphere.

      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

    The food here is fantastic so don't let the humble look of the building fool you. Service was top … More notch, friendly, unobtrusive, and knowledgeable. Waitress handled our special order with grace and kitchen knocked all the dishes out of the pack. Portions are amazingly generous!

    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.
