    We organized a prix fixe menu for a group special occasion and the team was outstanding in promising and then over-delivering, even adding special menu items for our vegan guest. Everyone left full and happy, and they even took care of our toddlers food needs. We love this place.

    Pizza was tasty but I was surprised that there were no mushrooms on the menu. I thought mushrooms were a main item to put on pizza.

    Appetizers were good, nothing jumped out except for the beet salad. Franny's knows how to make an amazing and flavorful beer salad. I had the baked paccheri and it satisfied. The cacio e pepe was too light.

    Nice family Park Slope-y atmosphere. I felt a bit rushed and slightly pressured to buy an extra drink. They have a line waiting so I can see that they are trying to move things along quickly, a problem that is hard to solve. Other than that, it's bright and cheery, and the food is good, priced on the higher end.

    A group of seven of us gathered to celebrate my birthday. The chefs created a menu for us so we didn't have to order anything except cocktails. Luca, the sommelier, pre-selected delicious wines to complement each course. Everything was artfully prepared and the service wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday celebration!

    This has been a neighborhood mainstay for many years but this was our first time. It was very crowded when we showed up at the time of our reservation (7:30 Saturday night). They were expecting us and sat us promptly. The staff is friendly and attentive. We were surprised that the menu's entrees were mostly limited to pizza and a few pastas and polentas. The beet and roasted carrot salads are really a step from the ordinary. The pizza is good but the menu is set so no adding or subtracting of the toppings.

    We've been to Franny's >50 times and it's sadly starting to slide. The food is excellent but the service wasn't great. We waited >25 minutes between appetizers and pizza. Also the value at Franny's is starting to slide. Portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller while their prices remain on the high end. Also...get some new martini glasses. Those sad little mini-glasses are...sad. One last thought and it's the most important one: Franny's has lost its warmth. It is a well-oiled machine at this point. They're optimized to quickly turn over tables to meet the demand but it is a not a friendly place. We can't count how many times we've been there and nobody ever comes over to ask us if we're enjoying our meal. Nobody knows who we are. The wait staff turns over constantly. It's one of our favorite restaurants because the food is exceptional (and not just the pizza). But the overall value and dining experience leave a lot to be desired.

    Another wonderful meal at franny's. I don't usually take the time to write these, but I was especially impressed that after I complaiend about being seated in the basement, they quickly found another table upstairs. Our friends - visiting from Dublin and Seattle, had a wonderful time and loved the food and wine.

    You can't miss going to Franny's. Their salads are creative and perfectly prepared and the options are numerous. They have an orange salad or kale salad which I recommend. They are large enough to share. They support local farms and list them on their menu. They also have some creative meat appetizer options such as pork cheek and beef tongue terrine or grilled beef sausage. I highly recommend both. They are known for their wood oven pizzas which are thin crust with endless options. I always have the clam pizza which is a buttery creamy topping with whole fresh clams. The pizzas are individual size if you are especially hungry. If not, you can split two for three people. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and always tentative to your requests and needs. The atmosphere is perfect, not too dark or too bright. Franny's is my go to restaurant for a casual dinner perfectly prepared prior to a sporting event or concert at Barclays Center. You can easily walk to and from Barclays. Enjoy, I know you will.

    Had a meatball pizza and a sausage pizza. The doughs flavor was bland and the meatballs and sausage looked and tasted processed . $22 for each small pizza is way too expensive for what I was served. I felt robbed. Keste and Don Antonio (same owner) in the city serve a better pie and a cheaper price.

    Although we do like Franny's and will go there occasionally, it's not a place we would frequent due to the unusually high prices. The pizza is good but way overpriced for what you get. Other dishes there are quite good but also overpriced. We would probably go more often if prices were more reasonable.

    Always a great spot but last night in particular the food was on point. Citrus salad, male salad, chicken pasta and two pizzas were all enjoyed and the server did a very good job of guiding us through the whole experience. It's never easy on Valentine's Day but it felt so last night (for the diners at least).

    Began with a new, cherry-flavored, gin-based cocktail, and even though I always order a Brooklyn cocktail at Franny's, I tried this new one and was thrilled to toast my two friends who were both celebrating their birthdays. We then devoured two different crostini--both flavorful and a great way to begin the meal. Arincini melted in our mouths, as did the pasta dish. The wood-roasted beets were tender and smokey, while the sausage served with half sour pickles was juicy inside, just crispy enough outside. Clam pie? An iconic pizza at Franny's which did not disappoint. Great wines and creamy pistachio gelato and bombolini left us all feeling as though we'd ordered perfectly.

    Excellent food and service but grossly overpriced. I go much less frequently since they blatantly raised prices allegedly to cover the cost of their employees' health insurance. The place is a gold mine- I feel the price increase was wholly unjustified.
