About Frankie & Benny's
Rumour has it that Frankie Giuliani was 10 years old when, with his Mamma and Poppa, he left Sicily and landed at Ellis Island, New York in 1924.
They moved in with relatives in ‘Little Italy’, a predominantly Italian neighbourhood. Poppa soon found work, but from the home country he'd brought a little money and a lot of ambition. It was no surprise then, when the family opened a restaurant within a year, everybody was helping with the building and the cooking in equal measure.
Each of them had a favourite dish to contribute, but it was Mamma's home-style cooking that was the base from which the business prospered. Frankie went to the nearby High School and became lifetime friends with Benny, already a third generation American.
In 1953 Poppa retired and Frankie and Benny took over the business, combining the best of popular American food with traditional Italian dishes. The rest, as they say, is history...
