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.
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.
We have been to 457 many times and love it. 570 is so loud I was exhausted when dinner was over; I could not wait to get out onto the peace of the street with honking horns and sirens.
Walked out after waiting for an hour on a premise dish that takes 5 minutes to reheat. This is the 3rd time I have had terrible experience and I am done. Too many awesome restaurants in the Village to go to a place to have cold food served after an hour with terrible service.
Done with you!
Arrived at an empty restaurant on a cold NY early evening, post-Theatre matinee. After being placed in the front of the restaurant near the door, we requested a warmer spot, and seemed to be penalized, having been moved next to the server station and near a new draft from the kitchen. Again, the entire restaurant was nearly empty (and remained so when we left around 6:45 pm). This seemed vindictive. It was a shame, as it was a special night out for us and the food was fantastic, but one is left with bad feelings after being made to feel the way we were.
We went here on a Friday night for a friend's first time back in NYC in awhile after relocating. We ordered cavatelli and were treated to a tiramisu for dessert. The food was delicious. The service was perfect - New York-style.
Table service was lax and quite uninspired; wish they would have paid closer attention. Had to beg for drinks and flag down the server every time we wanted anything. I appreciate when a restaurant service actually checks in with you before and after you place an order.
I thought the food was terrificTerrific but the portions were small for the price ( it’s pricey)
The food is bland, no flavor. I think the worst Italian I’ve had in a while. Burrata was smothered in some kind of vegetable sauce - horrible. Will not be going back unfortunately.
Waitstaff were very attentive and did not rush us at all. Ambiance was very cozy, noise level was loud but in a fun inviting way, food was excellent. Had the cavatelli and it was amazing. Would come back again just for that.
Picturesque location- cozy and warm. Perfect winter night out with friends. Waiter was attentive and funny.
Great food in a very casual atmosphere, delicious pasta and great wine list
Muy buena la comida y el ambiente agradable
Came here for a birthday dinner surprise which I reserved using OpenTable for 5 people.
The staff was very friendly and the food was beyond amazing!
I had the shrimp ravioli. It originally came with lobster butter or something along those lines, but I don’t eat lobster, so they were nice enough to use regular butter (I hope!). Anyway, this was the beat ravioli I’ve ever had in the US! I was literally scraping the leftovers with bread! I’m already drooling because I need to come back to this place!
For dessert I had a tiramisu, and that did not disappoint either! It was so rich!!
A family member who couldn’t joined us called to buy the table a wine, and the manager (I believe) brought us the wine and served it.
At the end they brought the birthday boy a piece of chocolate cake which he wouldn’t share because it was too good to share. I absolutely love this place!
Definitely reserve a table as it was booked up!
Had a birthday celebration with a large group. Made a reservation and the table was ready right on time, staff and food were excellent, would highly recommend!
An old friend and I had a light get re-acquainted lunch. Very quiet so we could talk easily. Soups were excellent; salads too. Wait staff was attentive but of course they weren’t very busy. All in all, it was a good choice for the purpose.
Food is just Amazing! I've been back a few times.
Going downhill. Used to eat here twice a week for lunch and dinner. Lunch: meatball sandwich still great. Hardly any tuna in the" used to be greatest "tuna sandwich. All salads are very good. Service is non existent.
Dinner: Meatballs getting smaller and tougher. Portions are all smaller, and kitchen refuses to make even the smallest modifications. Service has declined substantially. It's sad. Loved this place in the past. No visible management.
Food was really good, but service was terrible. Restaurant was only about 20% full, but they insisted on seating our party of 4 directly next to a 2-top who were very loud. Added to that the general noise level was over the top, largely because of the very loud music; we asked if they could turn it down, given how few customers there were there, but they did not. Also we felt rushed the entire time -- if you don't want people to come to your restaurant after 10:00, don't accept reservations for that time! I love Frankie's in Brooklyn, but would not go back to this outpost.
The food in consistently amazing, and the space provides a lovely setting. The only issue is that it’s quite noisy inside when the restaurant is full.
Absolutely incredible food and service!! Crazy and amazing but I almost passed out in the heat. Yes 83 degrees in October and it was miserable being there. European air conditioners were useless.
Waiting for the temp to cool down and I will be back.
Very good food and service. The noise level was deafening.
It was our first time there! It was a little noisy and even though the food was good - we thought that the menu was a little limited. We thought we probably won't go back because we wouldn't have other things to try because of the limited menu!
Food was really good but a service was really bad. Seems like they were running short of staff. Drinks came late, waiter was clueless about menu items and barely came back to check on us. I've there before and went back with higher expectations. Dissapointed.
What a disappointment. We went on a Friday night. The noise level was unbearable. You couldn't hear the person next to you. The appetizers were unremarkable. Just okay. When the main courses came out, 3 were hot, one was cool and 1 was cold. When we finally got someone's attention we sent the cold one back. 15 minutes later we still hadn't gotten it replaced or even acknowledged by the waiter. He was AWFUL. We could not get ice for water or bread for the table. The pizza place across the street would have been a better choice. BTW-- We were at BABBO earlier in the week and the check was almost the same. Easy choice next time.
