HOLY CANNOLI ! THE FRANKIE TOMATTO STORY IS HERE FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
Frankie Tomatto’s was a GTA dining landmark for 25 years. The attention we received after the closing of Frankie Tomatto’s during the pandemic led us to write a book and share stories of past customers and employees. Frankies was much more than a restaurant. For many it was a tradition where they would celebrate so many special events year after year. We had no idea there would be so much interest but we’re thrilled to announce the book is now available!

What people are saying about the book!
Hundreds of thousands of Frankie Tomatto’s customers and former employees will thoroughly enjoy this nostalgic and informative book about one of the greatest Toronto restaurants of the past 30 years. However, the book goes much farther than that. For both practicing and aspirational restauranteurs it provides a case study of successful concept creation, development, promotion and operations. I heartily recommend this well-written, amusing and informative book.
Anyone who aspires to be in the restaurant business one day … will find his insights and anecdotes about the ups and downs of his entrepreneurial journey both inspiring and eye-opening. It provides valuable insights, practical advice, and a dose of inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs. A must read for all students in restaurant programs.
I read The Frankie Tomatto Story cover to cover in one sitting and so should anyone who wants to start a restaurant. With determination, creativity and business savvy, a successful – and super fun – restaurant was built. What a story!
This book is perfect for:
- Friends of Frankie Tomatto

So many stories
Over its 25 years, politicans, celebrities and more all stopped in for the All You Can Eat Italian Feast. And when Frankies closed our doors in 2020, so many people told us how much they’ve missed us. Founder Hal Roback and President Paul Dykeman have shared stories from their personal experiences, and those from customers as well as the celebrity drop-ins over the years. Frankies is missed, but you can relive a GTA icon with this book.
