Absolutely delicious pizza in a stylish setting. The Clam pizza was amazing! The mackerel appetiser we had was also incredible.

We were so impressed we even bought the Franny's cookbook to bring home with us.

Love Love Loved it!

While visiting New York we decided to attend a Nets game and thought we would get some great Brooklyn pizza. The location wasn't as close to the arena as we thought and the food wasn't typical Brooklyn... Over priced pizza and service was lacking that special attention to detail especially given the price paid.
The environment wasn't bad but considering we were the only table in the Resturant and the rest were in the bar made it very loud!

I've had a lot of pizza, and a lot in New York and New Haven, and what I've found in the past is that a really crispy crust, be-speckled with burn marks from an ancient oven, usually makes for the best pies. A lot of newer places have chewier crusts -- the outside edge dry but flexible, the inside stretchy like a good bagel. Not quite as good as the crispy crusts, but you can't have perfection everywhere. What Franny's has accomplished is a chewy crust with the deep oven flavor of some of the best pizzerias, and I'm not sure I've had anything like it anywhere.

We had a tomato and buffalo mozzarella pie, and a ricotta, mozzarella and garlic pie with hot peppers. And a few more. All were stellar. The dessert was good, too, but I barely had room for a bite after the second round of pies. This place is highly recommended.

Had a chef's tasting menu the other night and it was truly excellent!

Chef John Adler has captured the taste of a true Italian trattoria. The wines, presented by Lucca with a brief on their history, complimented each course perfectly as well.

The Pork and Bean soup was simple and very true to its origins. The Fried Panelle was so delicious. And how about the Grape and Ricotta Crostini? ....very creative. While some folks write that the Pizza was burned! - how about it was actually "well cooked" - the way it should be!

The Panna Cotta was the silkiest delight I have ever tasted!

Highly recommend this bustling and casual place for dining.
