Stuffed shells, and Spaghetti with tomato and garlic sauce were great. Also enjoyed a Caprese salad , and a House Salad. The local mozzarella in the salads was the best I've ever had.

Food was good and prices were reasonable, but on a night where there were open tables the service was unbelievably slow. It took 20 minutes for the waitress to even take our drink order. After we ordered, my wife was brought the wrong entree (we didn't return it, because we didn't want to wait half an hour for the right... More

Friendly family restaurant with family prices. Generous portion. We had the linguini with meat sauce (it was the daily special). A glass of red wine, a pint of beer, coffee and one dessert for $28.00 It was all worth it.

The flavors are a bit different but I'm going to consider this the norm since it's more local and authentic. Typical menu. Selection of local beers. Tough setup for a larger group to converse over dinner.

2nd visit, what a great experience. Busy staff working hard. Food was excellent again, prices very fair, very good portions, lots of local folks and people watching. Meatballs, sausage, carbonara, pasta, garlic bread, and house wine were all excellent. Fun place, rustic, entertaining. Don't miss it.

Good place to take the family. Good food and reasonably priced. While the menu is nothing special, it offers the standard Italian fare, you won't leave hungry. I loved the atmosphere as it reminded me of the family run places I remember from my childhood.

My wife and I and our son visited Papa Franks on a nice spring night. I like finding great quality for not a whole lot of money restaurants and we were not disappointed. It's a little on the small side with a rustic decor, but we didn't come for that. The food was very very good and the service was... More

One of the best roll up your sleeves, boarding house reach, unpretentious Italian spots you'll ever find, anywhere. The food is excellent and the staff try to hard to please. I've had lunch pizza and chili, both terrific, and dinner with a number of co-workers. I have tried everything from the lasagna to the ziti and its all very tasty.... More
