Italian
Italy's neighorhood pizzeria's are known as really casual places to hang out, meet friends, eat, drink and talk. Lil' Frankie's is just that. We offer real Neapolitan pizza, made exactly as it's made in Naples, fresh handmade pastas cooked to order, a wine and grappa list that rivals any in the city, and friendly (never pushy) service - all in a setting designed to make you feel at home.

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.

    I was so exited to visit, haven’t been there in years. The hostess was very rude, sat us outside, I reserved many weeks ago. We sat outside, witch would normally be very nice, but the smell outside inside the “tent” was like sitting in an old toilet room. So it was not a nice night 🥲

    Although the food was good the service was non-existent. Apathetic server who finally slapped down the check after we sat with empty dirty plates for 45 minutes, made no eye contact quickly barked”cash only”, yeah we knew that. They were busy but would be busier with at least a little service. We won’t be back.

    Delicious! My friend and I split a salad, pizza & pasta dish and both had a glass of wine which was a generous pour. The food was some of the best I’ve had recently. Great price for quality food. Note it is cash only.
