We met friends for dinner on a weeknight at Frank Papa's Ristorante. Our original plans specified a different restaurant but we changed course because we knew we would be able to hear our conversation better at FPR where the acoustics are much better. FPR has a very extensive menu; it is difficult to make a quick decision. Additionally, there are... More

We were looking hard in the St. Louis area to find an Italian restaurant that didn't serve the dark, heavy meat sauce but more the Sicilian sauce we love. In all fairness, St.Louis has some incredible Italian restaurants, but we were looking for one similar to a place we love in Dubois, Pa. We researched and called Frank Papa's. The... More

The beau suggested pasta for dinner, so I suggested we try somewhere new. I called to see if we could get a reservation for two , but was told although we could not get a table we could come sit at the bar for dinner. When we arrived there were two place settings at the bar, and the rest of... More

We'd not been to Frank Papa's Ristorante in many years and had a very enjoyable return. We went with friends for dinner and were greeted by Frank as we entered. Always a restaurant with great atmosphere and service, we settled in and ordered some wine which was quite good. My wife and I shared the flash fried escarole, a house... More

My husband and I and another couple had dinner. Each of us ordered a different entree. I had steak Madigan which was cooked perfectly. All in all, a very nice dining experience.

We were there fairly early evening, in time for 8 pm theater in Webster. Got seated quickly, let the server know we wanted to make the opening, and we were very pleased. The fettuccine sauce was excellent, and the cannelloni butter-tender and not overly heavily sauced. A very nice wine selection, also. I would definitely go there again, even though... More

This was our second time at Frank Papa's. We had an excellent meal and great service. The seafood zuppa is "the best ever" according to my wife! I enjoyed the veal Milanese. The veal had excellent seasoning with some Rosemary. Our serving team was very attentive and polite, but not over the top. Frank was there to make sure everything... More

Right under our noses is this wonderful Italian restaurant. We don't like the dark, heavy meaty sauces that some restaurants serve. We don't love microwaved entrees... I can boil up some pasta and throw on some sauce so we didn't want that either. One night we passed by Frank Papas. We googled it, called them and asked about their food...... More

Clean & warm place, staff helpful, and great service. Food hot and a lot of it like home mom's putting it on the plate. A bit more expensive but it's better food and can see made with love.
