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.

Food was delicious and great portion size.
Drinks beautifully presented.
Good service though one staff member asked a few too many times in a short space of time if we wanted desert.
Great vibe with music, not too loud.
Wasn’t ideal to be told no milk for hot drinks

Really enjoyed the evening. Sat outside under a heater and speaker. Plenty warm enough and music was turned down so we could talk.
We had two main pasta dishes which we both enjoyed and some very nice wine.

We enjoyed our night out but the musicin the venue was that compared to a nightclub so not what we expected and really hard to hold a conversation. Food and service were great thankfully.
