Frankies is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant to eat in or take out. We particularly like their Chicken Parm!
Nice place for dinner. They removed the lunch special on Sundays, boo. The garlic knots are pretty good. Overall, it's a nice Italian restaurant with a ample seating.
Don't know what the previous reviewer was expecting, but we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Ambiance, staff, and food were excellent. The menu was as full as any Italian restaurant around. We even ordered an extra pizza to take home.Tavola has now become our goto Italian place. Oh yes... they have authentic Tiramisu.
Disappointment!!!! We have been eating at this restaurant for over 1 year, almost on a weekly basis. While the food is not great, it is good and the atmosphere is nice. The waiters are cordial and friendly. Today, we went and order one of our usual meals, Chiopino, and it was awful. In the past, Chipino brought a variety of seafood, including, mussels, calamari, shrimp, clams, fish.... in a delicate spicy red sauce Today, the sauce was heavy and gross, and the plate had no calamari, or mussels. Furthermore, the "manager" , who is the first time we saw him, stopped by other tables and walked by ours without even asking how was the food. We now there was a new supervisor on the floor who previously was a waiter, but did not asked us about how was the food either. I do not know if these "managers" did not stopped by the table and asked about the food because they heard us speaking in Spanish(at least the new floor supervisor who knew and served us before, knew we spoke Spanish) or because they knew the poor quality of food they served since the Chiopino was missing ingredients. Notwithstanding the poor quality and missing ingredients on the Chipino, we were charged the full price.
All in all a very good experience. the food was good and the service was outstanding. it was a very enjoyable evening for us
Tavola Italian Kitchen and Grill..we were looking forward to our first meal at this new restaurant that replaced Ritters in East Cobb. There is definitely a need for a great Italian restaurant in this part of town. I was somewhat surprised to see that very little was changed and never really felt like we were in an Italian restaurant. The food needs to be improved as well as the menu. Missing on the menu were such favorites as Veal and Chicken Parmigian, that is simply unheard of. The salad was soaked with dressing and the rolls were soaked with oil. I suggest they visit Ippolito's to learn how all of this is done well. I really hope that they ramp up their menu, pay more attention to the ambiance of the restaurant and stop soaking everything before it is served.
Love it. Food is always GREAT
The ideal pasta in town, I just loved the décor and the ambiance in here I feel like I am in Italy whenever I am here and they also have a great set of dishes in here.
So my wife and I have been driving by:Vincent's Italian Restaurante3412 Ernest W Barrett Pkwy NW, Marietta, GA 30064-1835for months and on Jan. 4, 2014 we decided to pull in and give it a try, we should have just driven on and got Taco Bell.We sit down and look at the menu and my wife tells me what she wants and goes to the restroom. The waitress comes by and asks if we should wait and I told her no that my wife would like the eggplant parm and I would like the spaghetti and meat sauce and that we would like the cheese sticks. So after five minutes the waitress brings out 2 plates and leaves them on the table. After another 5 to 10 minutes and the waitress coming by twice and asking how things are, (we had no food). The second time the waitress came by my wife suggested that maybe we could get our salads and bread that came with the meals we had ordered. Finally the cheese sticks arrive and are cold. After another 5 minutes we got our salad and bread and you know what it was salad and bread, nothing to write home about. After another 2 to 3 visits and being told on the 3rd one that we had 5 more minutes to wait. (time in restaurant is 30 to 40 minutes) our meals arrived. I will tell you this, the bowl that held my spaghetti and the plate with my wife’s eggplant were warm, but sadly that was all that was warm. I stuck my finger into my meat sauce after the first bite and stirred it around. My wife’s food was also cold so I looked around to get someone’s attention. I caught 2 gentlemen who were walking in the vicinities’ eye and waved, they proceeded to walk past my table and then after a minute or so one of them came back and asked if there was a problem. I informed him that the food was cold. After touching the warm plates he said he could have them reheated. My wife said that she did not like the taste and reheating was not an option and I said if she is not going to get hers reheated then I did not want mine either, (the food tasted mediocre at best). The manager takes the food away and comes back a minute later. He asks if this was our first time at the restaurant and we said yes and then he looked at me and asked if I had a problem with my food because my waitress was black. At this point I start to get upset and he asked if I was upset about the food and I said ‘no I am upset about you calling me a racist’ He stated that there was nothing wrong with the food. So the only reason that I could have a problem with his restaurant is because I am racist. I guess serving cold food is just par for the course in NY (which is plastered all over the place). I have been to NY City and Long Island and never had a problem with bad service or cold food that was not rectified when pointed out. So I said just bring me the bill so we can leave. He comes back and has taken away our entrées and added salad and bread @ $5.99 each and the bill comes out to $20 bucks. My wife asked to speak to the owner and he said he was the owner and his name was Paul. She asked his last name but was told she did not need to know. I paid the $ 20 bucks not because I felt he earned it and definitely the food did not earn it but because I probably would have floored him if I stayed there another minute. So if you like slow service and by slow I mean glacial, mediocre food and being asked if you are a racist when the food doesn’t meet your standards. Then Vincent’s Italian Restaurant is where you need to go and eat.
