Frankies Spuntino has served impossibly delicious takes on Italian-American cuisine for nearly two decades.
New York Times editor Sam Sifton, in his final review as restaurant critic for the paper, wrote, “The best meal I had on the job? It was in the garden of Frankies 457 on a summer evening. Nothing was wrong. Everything was right. It would have been nice if it could have gone on forever.”
It’s a place noted for its effortless warmth — a reflection of its beloved chef-owners, Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli.
Because Frankies is an ode to classic, red-sauce joints: It’s tiny, cozy, and dishes out heavenly, house-made pasta and meatballs that feel like they’ve been made by an Italian nonna.
