Our brick, wood burning, oven was handcrafted by a 3rd generation Neapolitan oven builder, brick by brick. It features real lava from Vesuvio and through a unique double dome design, recycles heat to reach near 900 degrees.
Always solid, always fast. Amazing wine offerings.
We were stuck in crowded area next to the kitchen. Wait staff were encroaching on our space as they were trying to get their orders to serve. Hard to think that having a reservation we would get such a lousy table.
The music was loud and the entire restaurant was loud. Tables were set too close together.
The food was good but ambiance was poor.
Family get togwther
Great food , great vibe
Not what it use to be. High price for pizza that is just ok. Service was ok.
Lil Frankie’s was a great dinner for the 5 of our friends getting together. A great way to share a ton of great food and friendship. They were wonderful and the pastas in particular were phenomenal. Would definitely go back and definitely recommend this place. Great price point as well including the wine list.
It’s our favorite restaurant in the city.
bday dinner with friends
Our waitress could not have been sweeter & our food could not have been better.
Perfect dining as always.
Perfect place to celebrate any event with your family.
The table we sat as was tiny with no room, and the restaurant is incredible noisy and loud.
Terrific. Other than having run out of two of our appetizer selections, it was perfect.
Lil' Frankie's on a Saturday night was extremely loud and busy. Our table for 4 was shoved into a very small area where we could not even pull our chairs out. There was a small passageway (maybe 1 ft wide) between our table and the next table that all the servers would pass through which made it extremely uncomfortable. The service was slow and we weren't seen by a waiter to welcome us or take our drink order for atleast 15 minutes after we sat down. The lemon pasta was tasty but I don't think it was worth it for the price or poor service.
Great service, amazing food, and atmosphere. Exactly what me and my girlfriends were wanting to start our Friday night —even better actually
Food was incredibly delicious as always, staff was polite and nice. Always my go to place for good Italian food. Can’t wait to go back again soon
Best pizza I have very had! Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Love lil Frankie’s ! Never disappointed. Went with a party of 8 for my birthday dinner and everyone left happy
Rushed service, average food, super noisy, very disappointing. Supper was much better.
The food was okay and uninspiring. Hash browns were disappointing because they were very small and you got two with breakfast omelet. The three for one brunch cocktail deal was nice though.
Always really great food, a bit on the tacky side. Always abrasive service. Nice host staff. Tacky bday celebrations. Super loud. Not to miss specials.
Amazing food! The pizza was to die for! Husband had the spaghetti with bolognese sauce, really enjoyed his meal too.
Only downside is the size of the tables, they are absolutely tiny!
Food is excellent as always! House wine by consumption was very good!
Went here for my birthday brunch. The ambience is so beautiful during the day, skylight, plants and flowers hanging all around. Truly a nice setting to have a celebration. Food was amazing too!!! Definitely will be coming back.
great time for a group at a reasonable price, with excellent wine list at all prices and STRONG cocktails. Tasty food!
Food excellent, but noise was terrible!!
Service was ok.
Awful service. Sat us next to a wild table so loud. Huge restaurant but they couldn’t move us for some reason. Server was terrible. Would never want him to take our orders again. Thankfully the food was great
did a large birthday dinner- was okay
Always great simple Italian meal. Always forget cash only! But it’s worth it. East village staple. Request back room if available.
Whole roasted eggplant was so delicious and unique! Love the back room with all the hanging plants, though the tables were a tight squeeze. Lemon pasta is to die for.
We had a 16th birthday dinner at Lil Frankie’s at the recommendation of a local New Yorker. Loved the atmosphere, the food was out of this world delicious and we had a phenomenal experience!
First time here - service was great, authentic, and warm. Food was remarkably good, and again - authentic, honest, and well-executed. We really enjoyed it, and will be back asap! Thank you so much!
Good food, feels authentic, a little expensive but New York is in general.
A bit overhyped. The baby meatball ragu was delicious. The roasted chicken was good, the olive oil mashed potatoes was bland. The pizza terribly represented a classic Neapolitan.. It's really cute in there though. As far as Italian food, I would pick somewhere else!
Also, its cash only...
Delicious!! Big servings
one of our favorite neighborhood gems however it is too loud
We had quite a long wait for the rigatoni but the fresh delicious bread help and they apologised and it did not effect our evening. If anything it was a testament to how busy and desired their food is. They also gave us tiramisu as an apology which was totally not needed but very much appreciated and delicious! We will certainly be coming back for pizza as it looked incredible
Love the Margherita Pizza. Fire Roasted Eggplant a Must
This restaurant was so good! The food was amazing, and the place was enjoyable to dine in. Would definitely go back!
The food was good. Our waiter was not attentive at all. Our food was slow and we tried asking for the check at least 3 times. And when we finally got our waiters attention it still took him 45 mins to get our check. After we complained to the manager he brushed it off and did not give a discount...
