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.
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
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.
