Four of us convened at Frankie's. A very nice eating ambience, we opted to sit bar side, next to the window. Service was very efficient, the drinks, excellent, notably the IPA on tap. We had the usual Italian suspects, veal, spaghetti and lasagna. All I...would say of my lasagna, it could have been more Italian, it lacked pizzaz and twang. But, otherwise excellent.More

Food and service were exceptional. Really nice atmosphere with great background music. Our server Brett was a true professional and took time to engage our daughter.

Our waiter was prompt, polite and explained the specials. Brought us delicious fresh bread with our drinks. We ordered Polenta Sticks for an appetizer which was very good, (so much that we could not finish it all). The Spaghetti Carbonara I had was very good....My companion had Chicken Linguine which had too much of an unidentifiable herb. The dessert menu was tempting but we had no room!More

We had an anniversary dinner here with another couple and it was fantastic. Calamari appetizer was great and so was my lasagna. Everyone was very happy with their meals. The service was outstanding especially considering how busy they were.

We went to this place on our way to a Whitecaps game, as it’s right across the street from BC Place. It is a warm and inviting restaurant. The service was very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. Great experience.

My wife and I had dinner here as it was close to BC Place and the menu/food/reviews all looked positive. We were greeted and promptly seated in the outdoor patio area. Our server was Lisa who was very nice and proficient. I ordered the Old...World Pepperoni pizza and a Peroni. While the beer was nice, cold and in a Peroni glass, the pizza was underwhelming at best. The appearance and taste were subpar. Minimal pepperoni with bland crust and cheese. I didn't finish it all and passed along my disappointment to Lisa our server. I have had a wide variety of pizza including both Italy and New York City. This pizza was disappointing and I certainly wouldn't order a pizza from here if that is representative of their product. Great location, good service but poor pizza.More

Made reservations through OpenTable a few days in advance. Booked for two on the patio for an early Sunday dinner before a Whitecaps game. Restaurant was good in texting to let us know table was ready & on time. Hostess was pleasant upon greeting. Server...was Lisa & she was lovely too. We were both craving pizza & thought being an Italian restaurant that would be a safe bet. My husband had the pepperoni version & I had the margherita. Appearance was not appetizing to begin with & taste confirmed the blandness. Crust was a thin crust style but dry & flavourless. The tomato sauce was unseasoned & I’m not even sure it was even house made. Cheese that was used had no flavour either. A fresh mozzarella or good parm would have had a nice saltiness or sharpness to it. This did not. My husband ordered a Peroni which seemed fresh & was served in an authentic glass. My smoked Paloma was lacklustre & in both presentation & taste. I didn’t get any smokey taste & I definitely didn’t detect any mezcal. For $16 a half salted rim with maybe some Tajin spice would have been nice too. We didn’t eat all our food, and we came hungry, but weren’t interested in taking any leftovers home. The server realized our disappointment & also noted it was my birthday & so she treated us to a chocolate cake & gelato/ice cream with a candle. Gelato/ice cream was nice. Cake wasn’t. Again I don’t think it was house made. So why bother? It’s too bad for Frankies as the location is good but it has definitely gone down hill since my last visit. I would not visit again nor would I recommend this restaurant.More

We do have different genre of live jazz playing in the evenings. Some styles are for a listening audience and others lend itself for quiet conversations.
