NEW YORK CITY | Frankies 457 Spuntino is a restaurant that focuses on Italian American food. More specifically, the food that owners Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli grew up with. Home style food that’s Italian at heart, with twists that the first generation of Italian immigrants adopted when they moved to their new homeland.
The cozy Brooklyn Space has been open since 2014, but it’s still as good as ever. Consistently fantastic food, a keenly priced, interesting wine list, and great service all combine to create something special.
Their meatballs are the stuff that legend is made from. Big, moist, textural, umami laden balls of happiness. They’ve been on the menu since day one and are a must order item. Also recommended is the house-made cavatelli with house made hot sausage & browned sage butter, and the sweet potato & sage ravioli in parmesan broth.
Frankie’s still gets very busy during dinner, and you might have to wait a while for a table. Thankfully the new dining room that opened in 2019 (RIP Prime Meats) does take reservations.
