REVIEWS OF Papa Frank's Italian Restaurant IN Vermont

Christian Lecuyer

Amy Thibault

Andrew Evans

Stephanie Green

Major Wheelock

Cool old style pizzeria. Good food, everything under $10. Friendly people

Mike D

Pretty good for Italian food in VT

Aaron G

Not very good. The service was slow. The food seemed overly processed and bland. It isn't too expensive which is a plus, although there are much better options for the same cost close by. The atmosphere of this restaurant is really wonderful. It is a family owned place and has a lot of charm. This isn't the place for great food or service but if you are looking for a low key meal with a nice setting it is a good option.

larry daigle

Great food. Enjoyed my time there

B-Trone Skapown

Great area with good food if you keep your choice simple (no veal!). You can't beat a salad with pasta and meatballs especially now that Boves is closed. The lasagna and stuffed shells are very good. Great prices and friendly staff as well. BONUS: garlic bread comes with each dinner meal!

bonnie azzaratta

Food taste like you get it from a can

Family-run small Cozy Restaurant with delicious and inexpensive pastas, pizzas and Italian dishes

Emily Merrihew

We LOVE papa Frank's. Love all their dishes of food and the prices are outstanding for the amount of food we get. Always fresh never had any issues. We just tried their pizza for the first time today and it's the closest to NYC pizza! More reason to constantly order from them!! ❤❤❤

Sherry Dupee

Great food great staff

Tim Brown

Great value, great food, not a fancy white table cloth kind of place. Big portions !

joseph poulin

My favorite Italian home food. Their sauce is amaizing.

Matt Grev

This restaurant consistently serves homemade Italian fare inexpensively and with great service. Unfortunately we have moved out of the area but I will remember how much we enjoyed dining at this establishment multiple times during our stay in Vermont. If you are looking for No Frills, extremely large portions, and smiling service look no further than Papa Frank's.


Family style in the best way. Can't go wrong with lasagna with a side of garlic.


I ordered shrimp linguini and chicken. They cooked the Linguini but microwaved the Chicken.disappointed.

Jared Tarbox

Service and food have always been excellent! Even when you arrive before closing they don't rush one out the door. Anyone with common sense knows there is at least an hour(s) worth of work to be done after hours so they let you finish you meal.

Gary Devoid

It was amazing the food was yummy, first time ever getting food from there we took out but still extremely good

mike nichols

Always excellent! Super wait staff as usual

John Guillaume

Great food friendly staff

Harry Roush

Very good food, outstanding service, both at super reasonable price. Took friend from out of state, his comment....a hidden jem

Richard Levesque

Quaint place where the locals go for pizza. They've been there for ever and it shows, but the pizza is great.

Martha Jensen

This Papa Frank's Italian Restaurant is one of our favorite. Great place with excellent food.

Mike Brayton

Friendly staff. Sort of just run of the mill italian joint, at least in terms of the food I got. Mozzarella sticks and Alfredo. There are places where I think the Alfredo sauce is extra yummy, this wasn't one of those places. I don't intend to damn this place with faint praise, Google popped up a request for a review, so I'm responding. One thing I didn't like but others might find rather charming is the fact that the whole place is tilted... the floor is completely warped. They initially had me at a table against the wall and the floor immediately starts warping out from the wall's edge so I was sitting at an odd angle. The place wasn't too crowded so I simply moved to another table where I was more tilted downwards. Also the chair, just not very comfortable - one of those sort of weaved-back chairs where the back really doesn't feel comfortable when you lean back into it.

Thomas Bremer

I got the small meatball sub, and it was fine. It said it came with green peppers, onions, and black olives but they were pretty sparse. It tasted decently, I just expected more of the veggies. My girlfriend got the pesto pasta with some broccoli, again it was fine. She thought it could have used more sauce and also the broccoli was an add on, and again it was pretty sparse on the amount. If she didn't get that as an add on it would have been just a big bowl of pasta. I'm not sure if that's how it's listed or not on the menu, as I didn't look at it. Service was good and friendly and we got our food quickly. The ambiance was cool though, everything was clean and had a nice feel to it. Overall it was fine, maybe we'll be back? I don't know, maybe if we're in the area.

George Mitchell

wonderful staff, great prices and food. Best pizza in the area

Good pizza. Classic American Italian. No surprises. Fair prices. Crowded dining room, tables ate tight.

Richard Bakker

Excellent food in an old, quaint building. The locals are here so that tells me a lot

Sean Carroll

Horrible place, screwed my kid out of her pay for 2 weeks while she was 'training' as wait staff. She bussed tables, cleaned, delivered meals, rung orders and was told after 2 weeks, that they had no W4 for her or any hours for her. Nice! Screwed a kid working her way through college.

Erik J

Was not overly impressed with the two times I've been. I've now worked within walking distance for a few years and it's not the highest on my pick of places to eat. PROS: It's nice to see home style recipes held up in full blown tradition. They do have a diverse menu with many options. CONS: The times I went I didn't' feel overly welcome by the staff and one of the times my lasagna was frozen in the center, not what you'd expect from a fresh cooked meal.

Debra Booker

We went with a big crew and the place was over whelmed. They opened at 11 and we called to make reservations so they knew we were coming at 5:30 and there were going to be 12 including 2 babies under 2. All of the bread was put into two baskets, we had two orders that were cheese bread and it was all put into one basket and they never told us so we had to order another set because it was all at the other end of the table and eaten by them. I ordered the Alfredo with chicken and broccoli they forgot my broccoli and then brought me out a cup of it, my chicken was dry and there was very little Alfredo. They forgot my sister's salad & ran out of the dressing she wanted so she settled for the house dressing, and she said she has never had a salad that tastes so bad. Our waitress was trying to wait on us and other tables at the same time so we had long periods where we did not see her and need drinks or more napkins, and she was preoccupied with helping so many people that she did not see that we were trying to get her attention. I had to go up to the counter a few times to get stuff that was forgotten, needed, or out. Not the best place we have ever been and most likely will not go again. Picture after I put my own broccoli on.

Jay DiStefano

Delicious pizza.

Robin Bourdeau

Catered an event for us last night and did a fabulous job. Food was excellent and the price was perfect. Thank you!

Salvatore Boone

They have the best spaghetti and meatballs for several miles around! It is a tad small, but the food is excellent.

Tom Wetzel

Nice fresh salad and free parking spot for pick up orders

Andy Dufresne

Excellent calzone!

Matthew Parillo

Another one of my gems. Don't expect high-end Italian cuisine, but what you can expect is good food, great people and amazing prices. Always check the daily special.

Bob Green

Good pizza. They are light on the toppings: 1-2 thin slices of pepperoni per slice, 1-2 thin slices of green pepper spread over half the pizza. Good sauce, very sweet. Crust was good if a bit flimsy. Staff was nice when I picked up the pie. This was my first visit, as I just moved here.

a google user

I would have given 5 stars but the decor is very outdated and this is strictly a pizza place. Just stick to the pizza, it is very good and reasonably priced. I got the pasta and was disappointed, wasn't a lot of flavor in the sauce. Waitress was very friendly!

Abby Bleything

Love this unpretentious spot with home-style Italian.

Matthew Pennington

Best. Cannolis. Ever.

Lester Juhasz

It's a small but great restaurant. The food is delicious at a more than fair cost. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend coming here!

Excellent food. BIG portions and friendly staff

John Suler

Top notch Italian food with very fair pricing!

G Coast

I just went here tonight with my family. It was incredible! The food was the best Italian food I have ever had! Really what impressed me was the service. Our waitress was the best waitress I think I have ever had. We started talking about working that night and how you could be doing something other then working. She then replied and told us that she loved her job. We really could see that she did. She had the best personality of any waitress or waiter I have ever seen. She is the model for how all waiters and waitresses should be. Thank you for time and I hope she is reading this. Like I said best food and best service! Cheese Ravioli is awesome!

Darren Wright

Awesome family-owned Italian food establishment with great ambiance. I've eaten a lot of Italian restaurants, and this place has the BEST strombolli. It has fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheese with a light, crispy outside. Great garlic bread, too. Strongly recommend.

Janelle Gilbert

Love the food, the people and the prices.

Hayden Mann

Their baked ziti is AMAZING! I recommend getting it on a weekend day. Maybe the chef is different during the week, but it seems that it is made with more care on the weekends.

Dennis Johnson

Great food, extremely reasonable price

Mel Allen

Inexpensive, convenient and good portions. If you're looking for upscale, look elsewhere. If you want to join up with some friends to have a filling meal this is a great place.


Awesome pizza, great mozzarella sticks. And a friendly staff

randall ruiz

Great place to enjoy mouth watering Italian cuisine. Family friendly atmosphere with super friendly host and waiters/ waitresses. I love the fact that they have gluten free pasta, since my wife has gluten allergies, which allow her to enjoy their delicious food. This place is a must visit if your around this side of town. A++..

Kevin Chmiel

Great service and food!

Naomi Chamberlain

Great Italian! I only wish it were closer to home so I could eat it everyday! The baked ziti was great. Garlic bread delicious. Spicy pepper pasta wonderful. Lunch or dinner. A winner.

Austin Bodette

Good food at good prices. Very nice servers.


This is a hidden gem just off the Winooski Circle. Perfect spot for perfectly priced Italian comfort food. The portions are massive and the wine selection, although limited, is a perfect accompaniment. The food here is not all homemade, but comforting and filling. The service makes this place stand out!! On our last visit we were taken care of by a very accommodating server. She helped us pick out menu items to share, got us a bigger table and knew exactly when to stop by the table. So happy to have found my new go to Italian comfort food spot.

Sebastian Maturano

Food was ok. Took a while. Over charged my credit card and tried to Deni it

Wilson Cortes

The reviews is why I went here in the first place. It was the second time while in Vermont, that the reviews have let me down. My wife and I both got the spaghetti with meatballs. I'm originally from and area that the majority of the population is Italian. What we had, was a disgrace to Italians around the world. My wife loves Spumani Ice Cream, so to make up for the poor spaghetti and meatballs which she didn't end up eating more then 3 bites of, we ordered Spumani Ice cream. Now basic Spumani, cherry, pistachio and either chocolate or vanilla. This had chocolate, I think it could have been cherry and mint... Along with vanilla that had cookie dough chunks... I usually dont complain and didnt on this occasion, paid, left and marked as would never come back. As for value for money spent, Mcdonalds would have been a better place to eat. It was a waste of time and money.

Daniel White

Puuuuuuuhleeeeeze!!! The best place in town for well priced Italian. Just go!! P.S. Yankees for life!

Jennifer Hewitt

Friendly staff, tasty food, served fast. Thanks!

Jessica Breish

Cris Cote

Could have been Billy Joel's inspiration. Really good Italian food.

Eric Spencer

Just okay. Nice staff. Food was blah

Suzi Fraser

My favorite local restaurant, not fancy but great food at a great price. We moved away 5 years ago but visit every summer, and always make a point of eating here one night!

Mark Madison

Went to Papa Frank's and had pizza. The price is right but the crust is that chewy New York style. We prefer a slightly crisper crust. It was just OK. Might go back and try the pasta dishes though.

Harry Michaels

Papa Frank’s is an awesome place. Great food, the staff and management are fantastic. Highly recommended!!!

Tony Corman
