Fantastic Italian meal!

Went here for dinner with some local friends, as it's their favorite spot - and now I see why! Everything we had was delicious! My favorite was the cavatelli with a sage butter sauce & spicy sausage.

We are blessed to have this consistently excellent restaurant in our neighborhood. It is particularly noteworthy as an excellent brunch spot (surrounded by so many mediocre options). The menu is full of solid classics, like the split pea soup and frittata, while also including interesting and new dishes, like the dandelion salad. I love getting an assortment of toats, like...

Although I have eaten here for brunch and dinner, I really didn't realize how good this place was until I had my son's engagement party there. The setup was perfect in their stable/garden room out back - the food was excellent and plentiful, (it was brunch), etc. and the staff assigned to the party never said no to any of... More

Finally got to Frankies after walking by many times and wishing I had made a reservation. Such great food. Fun vibe. Sat by the back window, looking out onto a private wedding party hosted in the back. Food was incredible. And such a great value. Friendly staff. Will be going back again and again.

I was looking for a nice lunch to take my aunt and uncle to before taking them to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook. The restaurant was quiet but food was delicious. We had Eggplant Marinara and Meatballs with pine nuts and coffees. It amazed my unlce that three men in close quarters cook all the food. If I... More

Just love the outdoor atmosphere! The food is so good and it's always consistent. There crostini's are delicious and I also love the roasted beets and avocado salad. The Sicilian tuna sandwich is always a favorite for me. I also recommend the wine stewed prunes and mascarpone dessert it's unbelievable.

Real, simple, delicious, Italian food. Just the way it should be. Our inside table was noisy and busy, so we asked to be seated in the back garden. It was a hot and humid night, but it felt real being outside eating food as good as my Italian grandmother used to make. We shared a caprese and beet salad appetizer.... More

I've been going to Frankie's for more than ten years and it remains my favorite restaurant in the neighborhood. Aside from a few seasonal changes the menu hasn't changed much and why would it? Everything --from the gnocchi to the braciole to the cavatelli with sausage and sage-- is fantastic. We've never had a bad meal or a bad time... More

Amazing character inside the restaurant. Loved the exposed brick walls. Menu was a bit more limited than I thought it would be but enjoyed my meal (buratta and tomato appetizer, eggplant parm for dinner). Walked outside in the back after dinner and just loved the outdoor dining. Sort of a 3 sided covered dining area. Would be great for an... More

There are too few resto's in NY that have outdoor dining; this is a particularly nice garden area. The food is lovely, the staff on top of it all.... we have had graduation lunches and going away parties here and it never fails to please
