I love this place. They have the best pizza, and when we get the warm breadsticks (with marinara and a bit of the cream sauce to mix together) to dip in.....ahhhh, slice of Italian heaven. One of my favorite pizzas is the Passion Pizza of Verona - pine nuts on pizza - wasn't sure, but was delicous. Love to go hear on special occasions. And, if you get the chance to meet Frankie - his is one of the most genuine guys in the world, and it is nice to see ownership that cares about their employees and communities! Thanks Frankies for being a great slice of our community!
It was a cute little place with all kinds of awards on the walls. BUT... our server Jenna was slow and not very friendly. The menu was over priced. They advertise gluten free pizza crust, but its only about 9 inches, comes in frozen, and you will spend $15 to have it.

Our friend took us here after our Cirque Du Soleil show at Marymoor. She is has been here many times and said the food here was good and she comes back for the bread sticks. Our experience did not meet expectations. They were pretty busy and we had to wait around 20 minutes since they don't take reservations unless your party is larger than 6. The staff was friend and attentive. We had the option to be seated inside or on the patio. We chose the patio since it was a nice day out and it was loud inside due to the abundance of kids. One waitress took our drink orders and another did the food. Everything we timely and came out hot. The quality of the food was not so great. They started us off with complimentary bread sticks that were a little overdone since the end pieces were a little hard. The calzone Veneto was pretty big but mostly dough. The filling was not even as the veggies were near the crust and the mean and cheese were in the center. I was never able to get a bite of everything. My wife had the cannelloni and the pasta was tough and the filling was made of a ricotta and chicken (dark meat) chunks. Almost like cheesy meatballs. The prices were average to pricey. The calzone was $12 and the cannelloni was $12.50. However, we did stay and chat for almost 3 hours and since they weren't busy any more, they left us alone outside. Very much a neighborhood pasta joint with nothing special. I personally will be looking for other places to eat next time.

I often measure a restaurant's quality by the care they put into the simplest dishes. An Italian restaurant should be able to produce great spaghetti. At Frankie's my spaghetti was served undrained, creating about a one-fourth cup pool of water on the plate and of course, greatly diluting the sauce. yuuk. Our server wasn't attentive and didn't check back. I managed to drain the water to one side by propping up the other side of the plate on my knife handle. Still, not good. When the server presented the check (!) she noticed the water and said they must have gotten in a hurry in the kitchen. She offered dessert when she should have removed the dinner charge. It didn't leave us with a very good feeling about dining there again.
Best Pizza on the eastside of Seattle. Good food, friendly staff and small town ambiance make this place one of my favorites. Previously a pizza aficionado from Chicago I'm picky about my pizza but Frankies comes through everytime with great taste. Add to the Pizza menu a nice selection of appetizers and a well rounded but reasonably priced wine list and this is a top spot for a family night out or with other adults.

I'm a big fan of pizza and I've eaten just about every pizza joint in King County. By far, Frankie's Pizza tops my list along with Pagliacci Pizza. They do sell pizza by the slice from 11-2 but the variety is just not there and tends to get old from sitting there to long. I like pizza that is hot and fresh. Overall, I give a high rating to their pizza's..because it's really really good. I'd would eat there more often if the prices weren't so high, compared to other local pizza joints, that's the only con.

My wife and I have been going to Frankies since it opened its doors, and what keeps up coming back is
everything about the place. It has a very friendly, upbeat
atmosphere, the staff is the best, as is Frankie & his
son Chris. The first bite of pizza brought me imme-diately back home to my roots(San Francisco) and
it keeps getting better with each passing year. The place is consistently good, and thats says it all. It's
also my Son's favorite pizza place. While he was
stationed here we frequented the place on weekends.
So keep up the good work!

If you?re looking for authentic Italian food with ambiance to match, you HAVE to try Frankie?s.
This family owned eatery is friendly and inviting. All of the dishes are proportioned and enjoyable. Very reasonable prices, great wine list are the norm.
If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, be prepared to wait, but I assure you, it will be worth it.

I order catering, set up, and tear down for business events. When I ordered from Frankie's on 5/13/08, they were here on time and the food was preserved so that it stayed hot hours after delivery. I've had lots of experience with other caterers.... I highly recommend Frankie's. TASTY! The whole group loved it. They were also correct about the amount of food needed for the number of guests we were expecting. They have large portions, so order accordingly.

I have been going to Frankie's for over 10 years and can't say enough good things about this place! The wait staff is always pleasant, the food is ALWAYS delicious and very reasonably priced and the atmosphere is very classy. I have read the other reviews regarding the wait time on the weekends but will tell you that this restaurant is worth the wait! Over the years I have taken many family members and friends to this restaurant and I have never heard anything but good things. Just writing this review makes me want to run over and order up a Kona Coast pizza and some breadsticks with marinara sauce. Do yourself a favor and go visit Frankie!

I've been going to Frankie's for over ten years and have never been disappointed. Frankie is a really nice guy as well and always seems to be around to make sure everything is in order.
In my opinion it is the best pizza in the Seattle area. I am not a big wine person myself, but I understand they're well known for having a great selection.

We have been going to Frankies for years now. It is by far the best of it's kind around. My favorite is the greek salad with the Italian sausage bake. The wine list is impressive. And Frankie is always around making sure everyone is happy (we always are!) Don't let the wait bother you on a busy Friday night. Have a nice glass of wine while you wait for your table.
I never write reviews but this family run business deserves a 5 star rating!

I love this place. We lived in Maui for 3 1/2 yrs and dear friends hand carried Pizza Florentine on their laps - on the plane - to us!! This is the best pizza I've ever had - anywhere. The service is always friendly, the ambience is warm and ""neighborhoody""....it's wonderful. I've discovered their wine list is extensive - but not as extensive as the owner's (Frankie) wine knowledge....it's incredible. He has a way to link extraordinary Italian wine with extraordinary Italian food - it's a gift.
