The inspiration for Ms Frankie comes from the Italian side of our partnership, heavily based on Melinda’s experiences and heritage.
Our vision for Ms Frankie was to have our own, modern version of Mamma’s home cooking, here in Cremorne, where your dining experience is a show for everyone to see. Here you will see our Sfoglina (traditional word for pasta maker) hand rolling our fresh pasta daily, and if you are lucky enough, you may even see the inspiration for this venture Mamma Vincenza in action when she is in town making her famous bread.
Here at Ms Frankie, we want to invite you to share the simplicity and beauty of our traditional family table, served with a sprinkling of us and who we are. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Great service. Food was very good. Great cocktails. More variety needed on the menu. More meat dishes.
Staff are amazing, welcoming and accommodating. Food is exceptional and ambience is just as good. Will continue going back
food is always fresh in taste and flavour. service is exceptional.
probably the best Italian in Melbourne for pasta.
Sensational ! Everything was just amazing. The food was all incredibly delicious, the service was impeccable, the entire experience was just amazing. We absolutely loved it!
The food magnificent, the ambiance graceful, the food delicious. The best part of all is the people who work there. From the kitchen staff creating memories to the service staff making us feel like we're old friends. I can't think of one single reason not to go.
We didn't love the set menu and wouldn't order it again. It was good but don't believe it should be forced on a table of 7 as we would of all been happier to choose a pasta that was more suitable for our tastes.
Will return but not with family group. Great place for a date
Service was great and very quick. We had the pesto linguini and lamb ragu and both were delicious. We sat outside and it was nice and quiet. However I would book for inside next time as it seemed to be a lot more of a vibe on a saturday night.
The food and service are always lovely. I find the music can be too overbearing for conversation - but the pastas always worth it!
Party of 5, we were running late and thankfully they held the table for us. Service was very good at the beginning and then it seemed they forgot about us. The food was good but not amazing. The salumi board was good and arancini and fritto misto were nice. My friend ordered Spaghetti Con Cozzi and we were told they ran out of seafood. I ordered the Rigatoni alla Norma, did not see the ricotta salata anywhere. The linguini spanner crab and gnocchi ragu were good.
Sadly, when we were ready to order dessert and coffee, we were advised that the kitchen was closed and they could only do coffee without milk. Why would the wait staff not advise us that the kitchen was closing and if we wanted to order dessert? We were prepared to spend more money and we are trying to support businesses but they closed too early. It put a damper on the restaurant for all of us. Not sure if we would go there again.
We love this restaurant, having had small gatherings and intimate dinners there. This time we sat outside. Food was fantastic as always. Service slightly slower outside but still great.
Ms Frankie unfortunately missed the mark. When booking via open table it only offered a $115pp set menu which seemed a bit much but I was happy to book something special for Valentine’s Day weekend. The set menu included some starters, pasta, salad and fries with bottomless drinks. As soon as we arrived, they took a long time to take our drinks order, which isn’t great when you are on a time limit for bottomless drinks. We realise we had been there an hour and had only received one drink, the servers were not paying attention and the service was really lacking. The food was okay... the antipasto platter was aesthetically pleasing but didn’t have much substance to it. The calamari and prawns were really good. Then came the main, when looking at the menu before arrival, we were excited for a yummy fresh salad and delicious pasta but were greeted with an underwhelming pile of greasy, soggy mess. The sad salad was not restaurant quality and when looking at the menu, it’s seemed to be missing the buffalo mozzarella but it looked more like a kebab shop Greek salad. The underdeveloped ‘Greek salad’ was comical. The gnocchi was soft and fluffy but the sauce was average. They forgot the fries and the servers were too busy to notice. The best part of the meal was the ravioli with butter sage sauce but this isn’t worth $115pp... Overall, this was one the worst value for money set menu’s I’ve ever had. Sorry but I won’t be visiting Ms Frankie’s again.

We had the best time - sat outside, ordered and got our food so very quickly on a busy day and it was the yummiest italian we've eaten recently and the people around were so nice. Totally recommend a visit, we had a great date night
Loved the cocktails and the choices of drinks. Pasta was great too. Service was good until later when it got very busy. Music could be toned down a little.
Absolutely outstanding and foodies will love the fresh menu. Every part of the service and the food are thought about in detail. The pasta is cooked perfectly and you have to try the ricotta cannoli. The staff are absolutely outstanding and the chef has definitely mastered his trade. Well done on an incredible business!.
Great!! Will definitely be going back and referring to mates
Great vibe and great food! Defs a place to hit with your gfs or even a lovely date spot! My only complaint - there’s no dance floor!!!
Food wasn’t tasty and lacked flavour
Sharing antipasto board food was extremely dry and not fresh
