I have filed at least a couople of reviews for Frankie's, but every chance I get to Brooklyn I go and am never disapponted. Our visit recently, four of us and three children 1 and younger, was perfect. We sat outside, our server Brendan was terricfic. He made great selections and recommendations and was particularly helpful with the wines -... More

This place is quite small and doesn't have a large menu but all the food is good. Lots of vegetarian options and very fresh menu.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I go every time I visit Brooklyn. The atmosphere is upbeat, pleasant and friendly. The food is always delicious. I have never had a bad meal at Frankies 457! Yay :)

This was my 4th visit and definitely the worst. After a 30 minute wait on a Sunday night we were seated in a corner directly beneath a speaker pumping out Loud music. We had to ask the waiter to repeat the specials as we struggled to hear over the music and other diners. We had to shout at each other... More

I was lucky enough to have a friend take me to Frankies last night for dinner. The food was the best Italian I think I have ever eaten, and the service was great! For starters, we were greeted the minute we walked in the door. We were still waiting for 1 person, so it was suggested we wait at the... More

Fantastic authentic Italian food! I loved my squid ink pasta! Great atmosphere in the restaurant, set in the beautiful Caroll Gardens in Brooklyn.

I don't know if this review should be for Frankies Spuntino or Pujol in México City. Technically, we had dinner at Pujol, but it was a special event where chefs Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli came down from NY to cook. The dinner was very inventive and a lot of fun. The tone is set by the first item on... More

One of first really legit Brooklyn eateries to decide to offer Manhattan quality food, in casual setting with cool people serving, and at much more reasonable prices. Such a winning combination and they were on the cutting edge many years ago. They just do things right, always with an eye on quality food and friendly low key service. (Very nice... More

We enjoyed a special occasion dinner at Frankie's last weekend. The staff handled our special requests with good grace and humor and we had a great time. The meal was very good but I can't wait to go back with just my husband and enjoy a leisurely meal, maybe in the lovely garden out back.

My brother-in-law took us to this place for lunch while on a visit to NYC. We fell in love with Frankies! The place had a lively vibe and the food was outstanding. Try the meatballs with pine nuts and/or the grilled octopus. There is another Frankies in the city which is now at the top of my list.
