We 100% underestimated this place because it was a “hotel restaurant” - we were 100% surprised!! It was Delicious!! So good!! Great wine, spaghetti carbonara - amazing!! Chicken Marsala- perfect and the chocolate torte to finish- the exact dessert I didn’t know I needed!
Must try!! Great Italian Cuisine

Restaurant was busy. Crowd noise echos in Restaurant.
Service staff is attentive and usually quick.
All food ordered was tasty and enjoyable.
When the band in Frankies jazz club next door is playing and the canned music is on, the "noise" created is unpleasant.

You must eat at Frankie's - the pastas are very good and the meatballs are very tasty.
The calamari is very tender and seasoned well. I have eaten at Frankie's for 10 years now a couple of times a year and always very good food and service. Eat there you will not be disappointed.

We had great service from the start with the hostesses (being patient with us sorting out getting vaccine passports ready) to an attentive server, and a quick delivery of our meals. It was our first time at Frankie’s and we went with a group of teen girls and everyone left happy with the experience.

We each enjoyed a tasty meal of various options of pasta and pizza. All dishes were superb and worth taking home as the servings were quite ample. Peter our server was informative, attentive and quite personable complementing our family outing at Frank's.

The Friend Calamari was really really good.
The Entre got a 6.5 / 10 - Casarecce Boscaiola

I ususally rate the food higher and my colleague had the same entre dish and gave it a 7.5

I thought it was a little rich and the presentation in a bowl was "kinda" slopped in and when the food expo carried it to the table the bowl's pasta contents kinds look like it was up the sides -- and it needed some green heb garnish -- but now I am getting picky.

Pleasantly surprised.
We tend to frequent our top favourites, including another high end for Italian but the food and service stood up very well, and for easier budget.

Definitely going back and hoping to include in our regular rotation:)

My husband and I were staying at the Georgian Court Hotel where Frankie's Italian Kitchen & Bar was located. We decided to have dinner there on our last night in Vancouver as we had a long day planned and didn't want travel too far for dinner. It was perfect. I was seated first, waiting on my husband to return from dropping off our rental. The host was wonderful, didn't make me feel like it was a problem that my husband was late. Our waiter was so nice. He made conversation with me until my husband arrived. I wish I remembered his name. He really made me feel comfortable and continued to keep conversation with us after my husband arrived. The food was delicious. I had the Chicken Linguini but substituted the chicken for Shrimp and my husband had the Lasagna. The food was excellent. Well made and so satisfying. I would definitely recommend eating at Frankie's. I would go there again.

The waiter didn’t treat us like the other white people. I think that maybe we are Filipinos he thinks we are cheap. I only tip him 18% of our $170 bill.

Was on the search for Carbonara on a Sunday night in downtown Vancouver. Many Italian restaurants were closed. Frankie’a reviews were solid and they were open. Charcuterie board was okay. Lots of thick bread and not enough cheese. Croustades would have been better. Carbonara was lovely and creamy. My wife has a Caesar salad. Not excellent but good and fresh. Peter was our waiter and he paid attention but wasn’t in our faces. All in all a nice Italian dinner. Would recommend to others.

We thought we had booked our reservation for the live jazz club side of the restaurant but we were seated in the casual dining side.

It was unclear on Open Table about the two sides and two different reservations .

We were disappointed.

Frankie’s Italian Kitchen exceeded my expectations in every way, and I was especially impressed by the efforts made to accommodate without hesitation my craving for NY steak and spaghetti, a combination not on the menu and one my server said was unusual. My special combo plus the Caesar salad I started with proved to hit the spot perfectly. Bravo Frankie’s!

Loud hip hop and trendy loud popular music does interfere with conversation. They turned it down a bit but we still overheard staff and others loudly speaking to each other as well over the music to hear each other. Seems a more "sophisticated" ambiance with mellow Italian music and less grating vocals would have been more pleasant. Portions were fine. Surprised to taste HOT chilies in Garlic prawns - NOT noted on menu. My guest could NOT eat it. We asked the waiter what it was - sprinkle of chilie flakes. The overly breaded and thus over done veal with frugal parmesan was disappointing. Doubt we would ever return.
