For good pasta with either meat sauce or tomato and salad which is better place. We are staying near both in The EV Aloha

  1. Personally, I prefer Frank.

    1. They're comparable, being owned by the same person. Frank was the original. Supper is bigger and the menu is a little more elaborate (though I may be wrong about that).

      I like them both, but I think Supper is easier to get a table just because of its size.

      1. I think Frank has gone a bit downhill over the years; I strongly prefer Supper.

          agreed! loved all the highly fresh, yet simple supper fare..

        2. the pasta with meat sauce is better at supper, and it is a little bit of a nicer place. however, i think frank has better food overall.

            A word of caution about both places... specials tend to be considerably more expensive than comparable items on the menu. Ask your server for the prices of the specials. Caveat Emptor!

          2. Thanks, I have been burned by special prices on specials before. I think I pick supper because the menu is simpler which I like

              Supper is a favorite. Love the white beans/garlic to put on bread that they give you. I like the Priest Stranglers pasta much more than the meat sauce. The chicken is also a winner.
