Had dinner while staying at Holiday Inn next door. We were a bit leery, as some of our experiences with hotel-adjacent food have been sketchy. Well, we were more than pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent, hot, and served impeccably. They have their own olive oil, and they sell it if you want a bottle for home. It paired quite well... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express next door, and ate here the first night at the recommendation of the front desk staff and also because it was so convenient. The food was wonderful. Nice presentation and great flavor. The waitstaff was efficient and friendly. The staff gave the impression that they enjoy doing what they do at Frantoio Ristorante!... More

We had a booth table against the wall in their great hall with the olive press room at one end. The food was excellent and the server was very attentive and knowledgeable- we felt right at home. They also have a nice bar area to the right of the entry. Wonderful Italian desserts and wine list too!

On a rainy cold night, having this restaurant next to the HIE was just what we needed to spur us into "Italian food two nights in a row". The scallop appetizer was delicious (if a bit overpriced at $20.00) and the pizza la salciccia was good. They have a wood burning (or so it appeared) pizza oven and the crust... More

I love Frantoio! The staff is extraordinary and the food is off the charts yummy! The swiss chard is my go-to favourite and the salmon is divine! I have a number of food allergies and they are always so gracious in accommodating me.

I probably get the salmon every time and am never disappointed. The food is always fresh and the presentation is lovely. Ask for a side of Swiss chard.

Food was good, service was ok, I expected more from a 'neighborhood favorite'. A bit dark inside for me. Take-out was perfect.
