Hopefully next visit we will have a longer time for more treats and drinks :) Service was great as well which enabled my... More

Pizzas are the best pizzas in the UK. I come here at least once a month and I drive into town to get my takeaway pizzas from here. The restaurant is authentic and popular with locals because of its old fashioned, traditional ways. Great family that run the restaurant... you feel like one if their own when eating here. Book...

Visited early Friday evening. Great food as usual. May it never change. Thank you for the birthday candle and cake for my son's girlfriend. Well looked after and the most awesome food :) Traditional Italian restaurant with a proper wood burning pizza oven :) Worth seeking this place out :)

Amazing authentic Italian restaurant offering hand made stone baked pizzas. Situated in the heart of Kettering makes Frank's in Havelock Street a hidden gem. Third generation in the same family is an outstanding achievement.

It was a revelation to find this traditional, family owned & run back street pizzeria in a Northamptonshire town. 3 generations on, after 46 years, the same family are still running this restaurant with love and passion. The menu is limited, the building could be smartened up but hey, most eating places in the UK today are run by chains.... More
