** my cannelloni was cold inside which is dangerous when chicken is involved. They made a new dish up and I had to wait 30 minutes while I watched my husband eat. Then when I was finally served my husband had to watch me eat. Not an enjoyable event. The waitress stayed away from us and did not offer us anything and didn't offer refills, bread, a complementary appetizer or dessert. I saw that she stood by and talked to her coworkers and even sent another coworker over to collect our bill. We will never go back and I'll pass this info on to others as I see over 150 customers a day that I refer to restaurants in this area. It's sad because they catered our wedding over 14 years ago and now the service is terrible.
Frankies is awesome! I have ate there hundreds of times over 20+ years, most recently last week.
They have always been awesome, it is one of the few restaurants where I have always been happy with everything!
Refreshingly delicious – 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!
neighborhood pizza & pasta joint with nothing special – 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.

Busy Place – Went there for pizza. Although the pizza is pretty good the wait, price, and service was really not the best. Also not a lot of parking. Went there on a Thursday night. Weekends must be crazy!
First let me say that I should have replied to this months ago. Somehow I missed your review. I also wanted to thank you for your feedback on your visit; and to apologize that the service was not up to par. I would love to hear more specifics on this, so that we can improve our service levels. Please feel free to contact me directly regarding this.

If you order spaghetti... – 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.
I very much appreciate your feedback on your visit. I apologize for the experience that you had. I think this is not a typpical experience and I hope you will give us another opportunity
It would help a great deal if I knew when you visted so I could work with my staff. Feel free to e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best Pizza in Maple Valley, Covington, Kent Area – 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.
You have rated the wrong restaurant. Frankie's in Maple Valley is not the same as Frankie's Pizza and Pasta in Redmond. If you think they are good, you should drive up and try us sometime! We are a single unit, family owned and operated Italian restaurant with an award winning wine list. Hope to see you sometime if you are up are way.
The Best Pizza & Friendly Staff – 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!
Food and staff are wonderful, but is their sanitary practices up to par? – Love the food, love the atmosphere, love the staff.. We go there often and love everything about the place. Take out is easy, so if you running late, need something for dinner, this is your place to go..
Great food and service! – Our first experience and will not be our last! Great service and food! Frankie introduced himself and was personable and friendly. Wait staff warm and attentive to our every need.
We will be regulars!
