Expert review of Frankies Spuntino

A small funky Italian spot with dependable and tasty small plates.

This 24-seat outpost of the beloved Brooklyn restaurant serves up the same excellent food and good wine list. I always make a trip to one of the two Frankies on any New York visit.

Food and drink: 

The fresh Italian dishes always use high quality and artisanal ingredients. I particularly like their escarole salad with sliced red onion pecorino and walnuts, homemade gnocchi with marinara sauce and fresh vegetables like roasted carrot and string beans.

Ambience: 

Lower East Side cool is impersonated with a tin-ceilinged roof, black and white tiles and cozy tables, all with a hip crowd.

Service: 

Young and sweet, I find the servers here more personable than at the Brooklyn outpost.

Location: 

On hip Clinton Street, which has quickly become a Lower East Side foodie Mecca.

Price advice: 

The small plates add up quickly, running from US$7-$17, so don’t over order.

Tables to book: 

There is a no-reservation policy here but the table selection is quite uniform anyway.

Other useful branches: 

The Brooklyn Frankies is located at 457 Court Street - see the website below for details.
