Just around the corner from Richmond station, Ms Frankie allows diners to get up close and personal with a glass-enclosed pasta-making room.

Take a seat at one of the bar stools and watch them make your order from scratch — whether you've picked the pumpkin and ricotta stuffed tortellini topped with amaretti crumb, slow cooked beef ragu with gnocchi or Giorgio's signature spaghetti marinara. Gluten-free options are also available which is a big win for those in need.

Drinks-wise at Ms Frankie, there are two beers on tap and a selection in the fridge, including everyone's favourite Peroni Red. By the glass, the wine selection isn't huge but is well thought out, with a nice selection of each colour. Cocktails include all the classics as well as a healthy selection of spritzes, while the Frankie's Sour with Montenegro, rosemary honey and mandarin juice is an instant classic.
