Vegan in Lenox

Nice atmosphere with attentive and friendly service. Very much appreciated the vegan menu. Several options, which was great. I had Penne a la Frankie’s. Not too heavy and nice addition of veg with the marinara sauce.

Great restaurant. Highly recommended.

We loved this restaurant. They had a separate vegan menu.
We tried 2 apps (grilled artichokes & fried polentas) both delicious.
2 main (Chicken Parmigiano & Tartufo) both delicious but our fav was the Tartufo!
I saw that someone had posted that their food was bland, but i only found that one dish needed a bit of salt (but i would rather under-salted than over-salted). The rest was perfectly seasoned for us.
1 dessert (Tiramisu) not bad, but not what i had expected either.
The atmosphere was great. Low lights, so it felt quiet & romatic, with nice music & lovely smells.
I really recommend this place.
Great food, service & atmosphere.
Perfect way to end the day sightseeing.

Pros: Lots of choices, Great service & atmosphere

Cons: Prices are high

A bounty of options, a dearth of flavor

I really wanted to like the vegan options at Frankie's - there was a separate vegan menu after all! - but ultimately much of the food was bland and underseasoned, lacking for more fresh herbs or house-made elements (the pasta was storebought and sausages and balls were impossible/beyond.)

The Tartufo was perhaps the main culprit here. I'm not sure I've ever had a cashew cream sauce that was quite this flavorless, though it certainly benefited from a generous pinch of salt. With a nice variety of veggies and a more flavorful sauce, the lasagna was decent but still unremarkable. Nothing was bad - it just didn't live up to its pretensions. The blackberry bourbon sour ended up being the star of the show.

Pros: Tons of options

Cons: Expensive for the quality of the food

Special treat to get a vegan Italian menu

Oh boy were we excited for this. A whole vegan Italian pasta menu! And some appetizers. Don't miss the tender artichokes if they have them. The tartufo and lasagne were amazing. We came at the last minute and ate at the bar and had excellent service from the kind bartender who looks like a model. We took food home and ate it cold the next day with great happiness, lol. I really wish I could invest in an all-vegan restaurant with food like this. Amazing wines too and great recommendations from the bartender. I mostly eat pasta as a treat, and this was well worth the splurge. Adorable town, and we came back the next night to get pizza next door due to reviews here.

Great option for vegans in Lenox

Frankie's is very vegan-friendly. No need to request the vegan menu; it is always brought with the regular menus. The pastas, salads and appetizers are all spot-on. The portions are more than reasonable and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. There is always at least one vegan dessert option. Reservations are not required but it is often busy. Boema next door is also owned by Frankie's and makes great pizza. Highly recommend both!

Pros: Great and numerous vegan options

Awesome vegan splurge!

When we lived in the area, Frankie’s was our go-to place for all celebrations. The separate vegan menu makes ordering very easy. I’ve tried several menu items, and the only disappointment has been the lasagne—a bit bland for my taste. The grilled artichokes are sublime, and the vegan desserts are to die for!

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Fresh and delicious, $15 Pasta Tuesday in low season

Cons: On the expensive side

Vegan Italian Food Options👍🏽

Specifically labeled Vegan menu including apps, salads, and entrees (noodle dishes). I can suggest the Polenta fries, veggie lasagna and penne alla Frankies as they were all delish 👌🏽. It’s sister restaurant, Pizza Boema, located next door has some yummy pizza if you’re looking to pair your Italian meal with some pizza.

Excellent Food

They have several vegan options - some with vegan meats and cheeses - some just good standard Italian pastas. Lovely atmosphere pleasant staff.

If you go for lunch, be sure to clarify that the vegan pastas are the same price as the non-vegan entres - (they don't have a separate lunch menu for vegan fare so it looks like vegan if twice the price)

Pleasantly surprised

Was pleasantly surprised to see that they had an all vegan menu. It’s rare for an Italian restaurant to have vegan options at all other than maybe pasta with marinara. The atmosphere was nice and the food was good. It’s always exciting for me to find vegan options in the Berkshires so I’d definitely recommend to other vegans and vegetarians in the area to check this place out!
