Pizzeria
Welcome to Maybe Frank - Surry Hills
We are a traditional Italian Woodfire pizzeria as well as a small cocktail bar on church lane, just off Bourke street in Surry Hills. Our pizza is made in the traditional Italian way. Our dough is rested between 36 and 72 hours, making the pizza easy to digest with a delectably crispy texture alla romana.The bar at Maybe Frank is our little secret. We are focused on aperitivo and digestive cocktails. Everything is done with a modern Italian twist and all created by our talented bartender: Andrea Gualdi. Our list is constantly changing according to seasonality and provenance. Always using the freshest ingredients, and peculiar Italian liquor that we can find on the market. Maybe Frank is a place for daily-dining, Sunday drinking, and for a little day-dreaming of your next adventure to our beautiful mother land.

.………Eh la madonna!!!

I visited this place on my own when I was visiting Sydney from Scotland. I always find it a little uncomfortable eating alone but the 2guys behind the bar made me feel very welcome - their chat was awesome, the food was great, and the cocktail the guy made for me was amazing - id love to have been able to go back - next time in Sydney it will be my first stop !

All you can eat pizza was great, although got seated at a table where everyone walked behind me. My jacket was on the chair and fell off like three times as people squished behind me to get through. It was by two waiters as well and they didn't apologize or even look back.

Atmosphere was fantastic. Staff very friendly (although they didn’t know the appropriate times to approach you). My partners food was good however mine was shocking. I don’t think I have ever had a worse pizza. I had a vegan gluten free pumpkin base with mushroom pizza and the base and pumpkin were good however the mushrooms were watery and cold. They left pools of water all over the pizza and when you bit into them they would just exert water. It was as though they had been frozen, retained water, microwaved to defrost for 30 secs and then put on the pizza. Because of the Staff & atmosphere I can understand why it is a popular venue.

The food was really good. I went on a Tuesday night and they had $20 all you can eat. So we had 2 pizzas, salad and dessert. I think they're worth the money! The pizzas were soooo good.. I had one with truffle and it was yummy. The dessert was a nutella dough donut? I would highly recommend Maybe Frank!

The food was so nice and the service matched. It was a great place to go for a date night as the music wasn't too loud and the $20 all you can eat pizza was amazing. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

Comparing to last experience wasn’t nice.

Sat next to busy table and very cramped with baby high chair and pram next to me. So hard to move about. However can appreciate the place is generally quite small.

Food quality just wasn’t there and the pizzas weren’t that great compared to other restaurants and our last experience.

Probably won’t go back again.

Service was a bit average and we were sadly next to the door so the wind drafts were constant. We waited about an hour to pay, even getting up to attempt to pay and told to sit back down and waiting another 30 mins!

First time I've come here to organised a farewell and the experience was really positive. All the guests were impressed by the food, vibe and the service. Not to mentioned a great taste for music. Love this place and would definitely be back and introduce to others.

Our group were all running late due to various reasons and the staff were so kind and accommodating despite this. Food and drinks were brought out quickly and were delicious. The Margherita pizza was a little soggy in texture but tasted incredible (which is all that matters, right?). It was also my birthday and the staff (on my friends request) had a Nutella pizza made with a candle and played 50cent ‘In Da Club’ through the whole restaurant which made the night feel extra special and fun. The playlist was fantastic, the Mexican cocktail, which was recommended by one of the staff, was delicious. Noise level was perfect to still have conversation but provide a cosy ‘buzzing’ atmosphere. Thank you to everyone on staff for making our dinner such a fantastic experience.

Thursday night - $15 pizzas and pastas!
Will definitely be back for the pizzas. Delicious base, crusts, cheese and toppings. The Diavola is the perfect amount of hot. Glad we tried the pastas but will give them a miss next time. See you again soon

Great food, ok wine, average service, they sat us outside in the cold which was a shame. We were pretty ignored out there by our servers, who then double charged us for a bottle of champagne which was a bit of a headache..

I had been recommended this place by 2 different friends and it totally met the expectations.
The place is lovely, cozy and nice. The pizzas were amazing!! Best ones we had in Sydney. And the staff were very friendly. We sat in the bar, and both bartenders and the girl who served us were really nice! We will def come back!!

Loved it! The sharing plates are amazing as you get to try pretty much all of the things on the menu that you would normally find hard to decide between when order one dish! The food is delicious, staff are so friendly. I would 100% go back again for more

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Drinks didn’t taste great, not implying the bartenders didn’t do a good job but maybe I don’t have the acquired taste for
