Italian
Like so many Melbournians, we are the daughters of Italian and Greek immigrant parents, coming from a family of “contadini” (farmers) who lived and worked off the land.

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.

We were stuck in traffic and Kate for our booking. I phoned and they were very accomodating and changed our booking time and kept our table. Great atmosphere, friendly prompt service and delicious food and cocktails. Would come back again!

We were given the boot very quickly after arriving (less than 2 hours). Our waitress forgot part of our order to which we rallied and said “that’s ok we’ll get done dessert instead”, she then told us there will be no time for dessert, delivered our bill when I still had half a drink to finish and asked that we kindly leave. To top it off we were seated right next to where all the staff smoke their cigarettes, beautiful aromas wafting through the makeshift walls. Yeah not going back in a hurry

We felt very welcome and were extremely well attended to by Chiara. The food was abundant and good. There could have been more sparkling options on the drinks menu, but what we had was fine.

Welcome back Ms Frankies!

The service to the table was outstanding. Our waiter was very proactive in filling glasses, removing dirty dishes, suggesting specials.
The food was as usual, exceptional! The crab raviolis ... omg, delicious! And the cheese croquettes will always be my favourites!
My friends and I have missed Ms Frankies during the lockdown and were more than delighted to be able to dine in again!

Customer service was amazing! The restaurant has a great vibe, and food came through very quickly. The only feedback we had was our dishes. My pasta was a tad chewy (probably a bit too al dente) - I had the Tortelonni Spanner crab, but in terms of flavour overall - delicious!

Nice vibe, friendly staff and nice pastas. The spaghetti with the anchovies, would have been nicer with fresh anchovies, and my prawn pasta was nice, but l prefer not to have to handle them to remove heads and shell.
