Papa Frank’s


Papa Frank’s is a Saputo’s family-owned and operated restaurant. After establishing a popular fine Italian dining landmark in downtown Springfield, the Saputo’s family wanted to bring their traditional, old world recipes to those on Springfield’s west end.



Papa Frank’s offers a more modern version of Saputo’s. The extensive menu covers all Italian varieties ensuring that guests will enjoy authentic dishes including: pasta, chicken, steak and fresh fish entrees. Whatever the occasion, Papa Frank’s will provide an unforgettable dining experience.
