      My chicken Caesar salad was awesome, the portions were huge, and the service was great. Will definitely come back again.

      For anybody in Oklahoma, Texas, or Arkansas, this is the same menu as what Napoli's used to be. Awesome garlic knots with dipping oil. The crab stuffed mushroom appetizer was... read more

      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

      Totally disappointed. I ordered the grilled chicken fettuccine and the chicken was so old and dried out I couldn't even eat it. It looked disgusting. We told the waiter but... read more

      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.

      Outstanding food and service during the Covid craziness. A glass is wine would have added to the enjoyment of great food and environment.

    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.

    I grew up in the northeast, the home of Italian food in America, so my personal bar when it comes to … More this type of cuisine is very high. That said, Franks Italian Restaurant gets near the bar, but certainly not over it.The restaurant is clean, the service is good and the food for this area is pretty good.The prices are fair and the portions are are enough to satisfy just about any appetite.My biggest disappointment is they no longer serve pizza. The used to make on of the best pizzas in town but it’s no longer on the menu.
