I have been eating Frankie's food for well over a decade (since I was a wee lad), the location has changed but it somehow gets better every time our family goes there. The atmosphere is friendly, the food is amazing, and the owners are some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Beautiful is the... More

Visited on a recent Friday and the service and food is very good. Nice menu and a variety to choose from. Great pasta and sauce, portions could be more generous but they were very good.

First, I'll say the service was really slow. It was about 90 min. before my friend and I got our entrees and it wasn't that crowded, there were some empty tables. I had the Pollo Bianco. The chicken was dry and overcooked, the mushrooms a bit undercooked. It came with a side of pasta. The pasta was cold and the... More

Frank Z, Owner at Frankie's Taste of Italy, responded to this review

Thank you for at least liking our atmosphere and I apologize that you did not like your meal. The appropriate response would have been to voice your disappointments to your server and given us the opportunity to re-cook your meal or offer you another entrée. So perhaps before whining to trip advisor about another business you might stop to realize... More

We were in Old Forge to hike and kayak, and found this place by accident. It was a treasure, and we will be back.

While walking around in Old Forge, we asked for recommendations for a good Italian restaurant and we were referred to Frankies. Well, not only was the food delicious, but just as importantly, the hospitality was Fantastic! We had such a great experience, starting with... More

My wife and I treated her brother and sister-in-law to dinner at Frankie's. We were not disappointed. It's been almost two years ago from our last visit. The menu has changed just a bit since then. The entrees ordered were the Veal Marsala, Taste of Italy, Chicken Francese and Pasta Anna(new name for Riggies Anna). The service was wonderful and... More

I come here every year with my family and we always eat at Frankie's. I was a little disappointed this year as they didn't have my favorite special - rollatini. Oh well, I hope they bring it back. Our meals were good but they seemed to be lacking a little on the service. Perhaps it was because we were there... More
