Very Disappointing. I was looking forward to our first dining experience at Frankie's since I had heard good things. Unfortunately, we were tremendously disappointed. Once seated we had to wait 10 minutes for our drink order. Then, we had to wait for our appetizer in order to receive OUR FIRST DRINK. The food to F-O-R-E-V-E-R to arrive and when it finally did, the pizza my friend ordered was cold, as in congealed cheese. I ordered the linguine with clams and mussels, what I received was sea water with a side of pasta. I wanted to give the place the benefit of the doubt by asking if they were understaffed, but the answer was no. So, suffice it to say, we will not be returning to dine at this establishment.
great pizza, good regular food, best if you
go on an off day...
the wait is worth it
First Pizzeria on the El Camino Real. This place has been around since 1957. They were the first pizza joint on the El Camino Real and they are still family owned and operated. The food is REAL Italian, made fresh to order.
An Italian pizza and pasta spot that's equal parts mall and mom-and-pop..
It's got a mom-and-pop vibe, but no one will confuse this place with the real thing.
Big portions of classic Italian food that won't challenge the palate or break the bank. Think pasta or pizza. Simple is best. Go with the spaghetti and meatballs, meat ravioli or chicken linguini. The New York-style lasagna is the restaurant's best dish--Italian sausage and ricotta layered with noodles, meat sauce and mozzarella. It's baked, of course. The cooks are very generous with their pizza toppings and often overload the pies (a nice change). But it's hard to not like the stromboli pizza which comes with sausage, pepperoni, salami and mushroom. The sausage bread delivers exactly what it promises. For dessert, go with the cannoli, sweetened ricotta cheese and chocolate chip filling in a crunchy pastry shell.
The Stromboli is the best!. Their Stromboli pizza is the pizza that all other traditional pizzas (non-New York, non-Chicago style) are judged by. It's the perfect pizza, with the very best quality meat toppings, the best cheese, and the perfect pizza crust (not too thick, not too thin.) The other Italian dishes range from good to very good, but their Stromboli pizza is their signature dish.
eat there once, you'll eat there again. eat there once, you'll eat there again: great food, great service...great
Better Pasta. I think my title sums it up pretty well in saying that the pastas are much more enjoyable.
Service Sucks. Service is terrible. They act as though they are doing you a favor to serve you. Wine and drinks greatly overpriced. Ambience is mediocre fake italian rustic. Food used to be great but quality has slipped badly.
cheesy, italian goodness!. The food here is fantastic! They have the best lasagna I've ever had in a restaurant, their meatballs are incredible, the garlic bread and calamari are habit-forming and even the salad (though I've only had it with the blue cheese dressing) is delicious. Surprising enough, they also make great pizza. Everything I've tasted here has great flavor. And they give you plenty of food at reasonable prices.
palate with passion. every dish and entree is a treat for the palate. My favorite salad is the rigitoni spinachi. the tiramisu is incredable and an excellent dish to top off a dinner
