I've eaten here on four different trips and each time has been excellent. They don't take reservations and it's about a .5 mile walk from the nearest subway station. This is a local secret that I'm happy to share. The service is excellent and the food is outstanding. It's a very small restaurant and in my opinion not kid friendly.

We had a fantastic dinner at Frankie's. A crowded evening so surprised at being seated quickly, probably because we were a party of only 3. Small, tight restaurant yet we found out they had additional seating areas aside from the main room and bar. Service was prompt and efficient but not necessarily very friendly. Server seemed rushed. The two pasta... More

Sorry, not a big fan, overpriced and they complicate every dish there with unrecognizable ingredients. The portions are small, tables too tight together and the humidity level in that place rivaled a sauna at the gym. Poor value. Ate there on 12/28 and won't be back. Sorry New Yorkers but this is not Italian.

Great place for lunch although get there early as it's small and will fill up by 12:30pm. Delicious soups and salads. Their house red is lovely and the staff are very accommodating.

Very dim lighting, closely placed tables, little privacy to be had, but this is all part of the charm of Frankie's. The food is simple, pure and incredibly done. Great ingredients, Italian tradition and some modern style make this one of the best Italian anywhere.

Excellent bread, sandwiches, pasta dishes. Somewhat cramped quarters, but fine nonetheless. Never had a bad meal here and have been there often

Went to Frankie's for a non turkey Thanksgiving and the results were excellent. The pasta, meatballs and vegetables were superb and the service was gracious . I like the open kitchen design and the all Italian wine list. I bet this place is good on days other than Thanksgiving too.

Nice casual neighborhood place with a great outdoor dining area in the back. Service is attentive without waitstaff hovering. Atmosphere is nice, but what brings me here time after time is the food. The crostini and antipasto plates are a great starter with a glass of wine, and the pine nut polenta is a must whenever I go. The classic... More
