This is a must when visiting Marathon. Went on a suggestion and so glad we did. At our table we had lasagna, manicotti, spaghetti, veal, snapper and it was all incredible. Bread and salads did not disappoint. Small place so make a reservation.

We wanted a good meal for the last night of vacation. A friend recommended Franks so I thought we give it a chance. I am glad we did. Lamb ossobuco, clam sauce, Muscles fraud Diablo were all delicious. I will be recommending this to friends.

We did take out 3 days on our trip. Authentic Italian with great pasta and sauces. The bread is also great. Call ahead if you want to eat there it’s small.
