Frankies 570 Spuntino
What Insiders Are Saying
While this isn’t a must visit, Frankies 570 is a reliable option that will be consistently packed with carb seeking humanity who might just appreciate the fact that Grateful Dead’s American Beauty is playing in full.
excellent italian food. price was moderate, service was very acceptable. enjoyed it very much!
FOR BRUNCH ONLY:
It was Easter Sunday so I was surprised that the restaurant was more quiet than crowded at 1pm when our party of 6 walked in. I made the reservation early enough before Easter and requested outside seating so we can bring our dog along (this was a very common place to see dogs hanging with their families during weekend brunch before, which is why I selected it!)
We had originally requested with OpenTable for outside seating so our dog could just hang under or around the table. The morning the day before our reservation, I was called and told that neither of my requests were possible., NO way- we aren’t doing dogs on the patio anymore plus NO parties of 6 fit outside on the patio, That’s not even possible!” (Though upon arrival, there were many ways to accommodate the request.).
So that was the biggest disappointment-they waited until the day before Easter Sunday to tell me this news- making it impossible to get a different outdoor seating table elsewhere that allows a dog or could even take a new table at all in that matter!
Oh well- we stayed, dog-in-car, us indoors,anyway. Service was ok, took awhile for all 6 drinks to show up on time or ever in sync. Beer was so warm the first one was sent back when it was ordered at the bar.. Good food, just so deathly basic- nothing I couldn’t have done at home on my own. No instagram pics or stories were taken. The gnocchi needs way more sauce and less cheese. The best thing on the menu is the Kale Salad, don’t miss it. Otherwise this place is better for dinner.
I looked forward to that pasta and wine for months! Thanks, as always, for an amazing dinner.
Worth noting: They don't accept dogs on the outside terrace anymore
Nice food and good service. Perfect everyday place for dinner in the West Village. Will be going back for sure!
Fantastic food, one of my favorite Italian places. Also one of the few places to put raisins in their meatballs, just like my grandma!
Ambiance is good but not as romantic as the Carroll Gardens location (but how can you blame them for that) the food was excellent and the wine list - both glass and bottle - is perfect.
Frankies was an excellent Saturday lunch spot. Not crowded and food was excellent. Service was a nice tempo - we weren't rushed. Team working there was great.
Great food and vibe, for catching up with friends
Lovely restaurant but the food didn't live up to the hype. It was just ok and nothing really special in our estimation. Maybe it was an off night?
This is the third or fourth time we've been here. Incredible dinner, incredible ambiance. Every time we go, the menu is slightly different based on the season, but there has always been amazing options. We always get a starter, two entrees and a side to share so we can fully experience the menu. Nothing short of great on all fronts. Definitely, recommend.
Gnocchi was DELICIOUS, great service, good apps, huge wine list.
Love this place! Menu changes regularly, wine list is good and moderately priced but the service is the best part of this restaurant. The hostess helped accommodate our reservation when it changed from 2 people to 4 and couldn't have been nicer about it. And the waitress was so knowledgeable about the menu. Definitely recommend eating here!
We had a late lunch and definitely recommend ordering the tiramisu! Great place to catch up with old friends :)
It look 45 minutes to get our table but the staff definitely made it up to us since it was three of our bdays. They did a great job of taking care of us and allowing us to have a fun time. Thank you for that. They made waiting all that time disappear... that’s a rarity!
Great food and service but very loud inside the restaurant.
We go to Frankie's 570 about once a year for its authentic food, relaxed and cozy atmosphere, and professional, friendly service. The entire experience is always a happy one, and the menu is well worth exploring for its seasonal dishes and old favorites like the meatballs.
Frankies is excellent! a great west village spot with excellent fresh pasta. Would recommend for great Italian food!
We were celebrating our anniversary, and they couldn't have been kinder to us about it! They gave us a free dessert, champagne, and were just overall incredibly sweet. We had a great experience here, and would definitely recommend to everyone!
They have coloring for kids. Very accommodating.
We were a party of six to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything was wonderful food was great service was great. The only disappointing part was that his birthday was not acknowledged even though on OpenTable reservation there is an option for special details. Upon entering the restaurant the lovely hostess did great my husband with a "Happy Birthday " and our waiter acknowledged to me that he was aware of the special occasion but that was the end of it.No tiny slice of cake, no candle. Very disappointing.
The staff was wonderful, the food was completely amazing, but holy cow: way too loud! We were screaming to carry on a conversation, and, “WHAT?” was yelled often. Would absolutely come back, but at a less busy time.
MENU CHANGES WERE DISAPPOINTING; USED TO COME HERE FOR SOME PRETTY SPECIAL ITALIAN SNACKS AND POLENTA, WHICH ARE NO LONGER ON THE MENU. FOOD WAS GOOD BUT NOTHING SPECIAL EXCEPT PERHAPS THE MEATBALLS WHICH WERE ABOUT THE ONLY ITEMS LEFT FROM PREVIOUS MENU (THAT I REMEMBER) AND WERE TASTY AND AUTHENTIC. OTHERWISE, NOTHING SPECIAL, SORRY TO SAY BECAUSE IT IS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
Excellent food and service.
Great food served in a cozy friendly place. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. The meal was wonderful! I only wish that I could steal some of the chef’s recipes!!!! The butternut squash soup was flavorful and rich. The turkey cooked perfectly- the white meat was so juicy. All in all a delightful Thanksgiving dinner!
Great food and service. Too noisy & a little mire expensive than i expected.
Super nice and attentive staff. The food was amazing, a great experience all around.
Eggplant parm is the best we ever had!!
I love Frankie's. I've eaten here several times and it never disappoints. This restaurant is loud when it's busy. But I guess any restaurant is loud when busy. Love the shareable plates. Would definitely recommend and go back when visiting NY.
This place is incredibly loud, only possible to have a conversation when you’re wasted, in a big group, and want to yell at each other.
Food is so so.
One of my favorite restaurants. Food and setting are wonderful. A lot of non meat dishes as well
Excellent service, a variety of different food choices, good wine selection, a few of the food choices are definitely their own which makes it a great experience. The atmosphere is very welcoming and makes you feel comfortable.
Food was incredible and our waiter was very nice! It was very very loud and we could barely speak to each other without shouting. Not a great place to catch up and chat with friends from out of town.
The food and service was excellent. The noise level is quite high, but we went early so it was not as bad as the last time there, when the restaurant was full. I requested an outdoor seat but nothing was available and we did have a nice seat inside that accommodated my hearing impairment issue.
All went well until we ordered dessert
we waited at least an hour and i asked twice for serviceto no avail
it seemed like everyone forgot us also if gratuity is included then we should be informed i might not have waned to give such a large tip
actually maybe the service would have been better if there wasnt a already an expected 20% tip
The food that came out of the kitchen was no better than my grade-school cafeteria. Absolutely no craft evident in the food. It was completely uninspired. Their famous cavatelli with sausage floated in grease and was overcooked. My wife was urged to order off the menu -- chicken milanese -- which was D.O.A. No succulence, devoid of seasoning. Paying $129 for such amateurish food was the final insult.
Everything about this place is terrific. The hostess greeted us immediately and with a smile. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the menu, although small, offered a great variety of staples and non-traditional items (like the grilled octopus with chic peas that my husband and I shared). Prices are reasonable for the premium quality received. Will def go back and highly reco.
The restaurant was so dark inside that you had to hold a candle to see what the menu had to offer. Our server disappeared for long intervals. The food was heavy wihout much imagination. Decor was dark, almost dank.
Very accommodating with an outdoor table
I had made the request when I reserved
