When & Where
Frank's Cucina An Italian Supper Club On Cape Cod
We welcome our friends to enjoy Frank’s Cucina: Italian dining at it’s best on Cape Cod (defiantly not your ordinary Italian Restaurant dining experience)
Enjoy a unique way to enjoy Fine Italian Cuisine. (In Europe & South America they are know as Closed Door Restaurants). Essentially, you are being invited to a dinner party in my home, since 2011, which is situated on a pond on Cape Cod. Dinner is served in an informal atmosphere in the solarium overlooking the pond. The food is authentic, creative and full of many infused flavors that will open your senses into a different world. You will be treated to a singular unique dining experience, which will undoubtedly entice all your senses.
At Frank’s Cucina: what is it like? It’s like Italy, art and culture, in the food and in the air, so please join us to feel that, and excite all your senses in my food. Each dinner is a unique experience unto itself, featuring usually 5 to 7 course tasting menu (See examples on my dinner blog) with time ranging 3 to 4 hours or longer. Don’t be afraid of coming on your own and we welcome single guests to join us. Prior to dinner you can stroll around, watch the cook, stroll outside to sit in the gardens (summer meals will be served outside weather permitting and if desired).
Frank’s Cucina brings authentic traditional Italian food to the table, learned from cooking (50+ years now) and working with my Italian family, my mother, grandmother, in the family kitchen. I have had no rules of cooking growing up and was told just create what you like and how it tastes, that makes the difference (if you like the yin & yang of flavors). You will dine uniquely with authentic Italian cuisine, that has my own creative twist given to it and taking it to a new level.
My menu changes weekly to celebrate a different festival occurring in Italy that week and serving their regional food.
Every meal and the heart of the dish are prepared with a layering of flavors, which enhances every dish. All is served with careful selection to the best locally fresh grown vegetables as well as from our gardens, and locally caught fish and meat, in other words farm to table. We work with local flavors and with the best traditional Italian ingredients available and each dish shall excite all the senses, to make your food delicious while being lovingly prepared.
“A question was asked of Gualtiero Marchesi (Known as the 1st Chef of Italy), What don’t you like about gourmet restaurants? When I was young, and my family owned the restaurant Albergo Mercato, I didn’t like the fact that people came to eat. I thought, ”Now that we have everything ready, we should close the doors and eat it ourselves.” Why didn’t I like it? People would insult you while they ate. Dining wasn’t a sacred act, as it had always been for me…”
“Today, I understand this. I hope to pass my experience along to you.“
