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.
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
We had the most attentive and articulate waiter that truly made our dinner a wonderful experience! The entire staff was incredibly hospitable and on top of everything. My cavatalli and sausage dish along with my friend's gnocchi with oxtail and eggplant parmigiana were off the charts as well. Well done team Frankies 570!!
I was noticing the size of the portion is keep shrinking. But this last time the quality of the food was not there. Appetizers are overpriced. Main course was just boring nothing new and tasty
If you want a quiet dinner this is not the place. Great food but you have to yell to your co diners to talk.
We had some crostinis, Frankie’s Antipasti and primis. All very, very good. The cavatelli a highlight. Can also recommend the Roero Arneis, a great grape from Piedmont, reasonably priced as well.
Food and service were very good, but the noise level is unbearable. We were unable to hear each other and almost left at first.
It is impossible to put to words how amazing the food is at Frankie’s. We visit from Pittsburgh, I’m originally from NY, and we visit Frankie’s whenever we can. The food is absolutely amazing. What appears to be simple food is unparalleled in taste and technique. I wish their venture in Pittsburgh would have panned out. Thank you Frankie’s!!
Too loud. Can't hear a thing. Service was good, but our waitress was serving too many table.
I was disappointed that I reserved outdoor seating on the app, but then I was told it was first come-first serve on arrival. The food was fine, but nothing terribly special.
I was there with my family and we enjoyed everything we ordered.
It is located in a lovely NY neighborhood.
Service was outstanding, too.
We’ve been to Frankie’s before, but were surprised by how unhappy we were with all of our meals. All three dishes were heavily salted. We had to return one dish. Octopus was over-grilled and dry. Chickpeas were surprisingly undercooked. Unfortunately we will likely not return to a restaurant we usually really enjoy.
I love Frankies and frequent the Brooklyn location. The food is consistently delicious and it's a wonderful space. That said I was disappointed to be a bit rushed at their Manhattan location. Our group of six had an 8pm reservation. I've ordered multiple courses at their other restaurant but it seemed they wanted to turn the table over and insisted we order everything at once. It's definitely understandable - but maybe this spot isn't best for catching up with friends from out of town.
Went with a group of 6 adults - fun get together, good choice of foods. We ate family style and everyone loved it. Feels neighborhoody and cozy.
Frankies 570 was a surprisingly exceptional experience. The Manhattans were perfect, the appetizers - the Kale Salad and Asparagus Salad - were the best we ever had. The pasta and veal were perfectly prepared and entirely devoured. The service was great and this nosey happening place has a great vibe!
This was our second visit to Frankie's 570 - the occasion was my wife's birthday. The place was almost empty when we arrived at 8, but by 8:30 it was filling quickly, and getting louder by the minute. With room to spread people out, it seems that the guests were kept close together, making everyone talk louder and louder to be heard over the adjacent tables doing the same. Next time, we'll ask for an outside table, where it is much quieter. The food, though! Frankie's never disappoints!
Lots of cream on the pasta and to much Citroen taste and olive from a can in the dish..
Sat Outside on a beautiful night which made the experience even better. They only had one waiter for the entire outside area so service was pretty slow but, considering the beautiful night that didn’t bother us at all. The portions are on the small side but very tasty and greet for sharing
went there on recommendation of Amanda who had worked there, as we were looking for a top Italian dining experience. It was exceptional. great ambience, wide ranging menu, very helpful staff and the Papardelle with a meat ragu was amazing !!! we will be back next time we visit NYC!!!

The food here was good but the service ruined the entire experience for me.
The food was absolutely outstanding! Good selection of wine and the staff was very professional and friendly. This is my new favourite place in NY!
It was so epically loud by anyone’s standards. Early friend dinner that the needs to get over herself hostess wouldn’t seat my friend in the empty place until her “ entire party “ was there” and then wouldn’t accommodate us when we asked not to be seated next to a table with children so we didn’t have to watch the conversation. Again, empty when we arrived. While the food was good and waiter attentive...it’s NYC- plenty of other places to go where they won’t think it’s cool to be rude and you won’t have to shout like a bar at happy hour.
Love Frankies, great Italian food but not super heavy. Lovely ambiance, and great for groups. Popular, but usually not overrun or too crowded.
Service is almost too good. We were interrupted a few times too many.
Excellent , creative cooking. Friendly service. Nice ambience for families and friends dining together.
They had a gas leak and
What more could you ask for? This place is on another level.
Delicious food with very unique tastes and excellent service. Our waiter was attentive and gregarious, a winning combo!
Been there twice so far and looking forward to the next time
Love! Will come back with the girls again!
The service was great. Amanda our server was amazing and knowledgeable. Even the hostess was great. Our apps and drinks were really good but our cavatelli and sausage entree was too cheesy and salty. And our paparedelle with chestnut tasted like blood.
Delicious, delicious, delicious! Lovely, cozy old world, yet very now, decor and ambiance. Great neighborhood restaurant worth traveling to. Attentive service and an all-around terrific Italian restaurant. We went for a birthday and had the greatest time. A special little gem.
Everyone took care of us: from the hostesses to the bartenders to the manager Steven to the servers. They let us know our table would be a little delayed, but kept us informed and absolutely took care of us. The food was outstanding: the chestnut parpadelle, the gnocchi, and the chicken special roasted with a brick were all standouts. The cocktails and wine list were excellent as well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone local or visiting New York.
Grilles octopus amazing. Tender and a good portion size, but i could have used a few less chickpeas.
Cavatelli all its chalked up to be. Service was great.
The food was excellent and I was not disappointed with the spaghetti, however, I thought service was very slow and not up to par with NYC standards. The room was pretty empty but the service of getting drinks, etc. was slow.
The polenta was great as well as everything else. Spaghetti out of this world and the breads very good.
I had the eggplant because I heard it was great and it truly was. So was the sea bass and the chicken liver crostini. The server was attentive and very nice. Tiny detail: don't order a decaf cappuccino. It was truly dreadful. Everything else was very, very good.
