I've eaten here twice now, and both times had a good experience. It's a no-nonsense place...good without being pretentious or "trendy". Nice, simple decor, and nice (clean) bathroom. :-)

On my last visit I got the papardelle with lamb ragu...it was delicious! Their bread serve on the side was also excellent. Oh, and their coffee was also very good...a very robust real "coffee" flavor....

Cons: tables are packed tightly

Food was really good. Roasted Veg. app was soo yummy and a great portion (split it with my date). The place is comfy and cozy withgreat lighting (dim.. not dark). Music was good but too loud which forced the annoying man behind my boyfriend to yell about the latest teen novel he had read... I don't care to hear about mormon authored vampire books while trying to have a peaceful meal!

Sorry about all of the exclamation marks, but as you know, as New Yorkers we eat out a lot, and I have yet to find a place I've fallen in love with as much as I have Frankies 17. The prices are great, the wine is terrific, the service is wonderful, the scene is just perfect, and the music, oh the music. I love to listen to the Beatles while I'm eating amazing food at my favorite restaurant on the planet. The cured meats are absolutely amazing. The olives are wonderful, as are the string beans, mushrooms, cheeses, breads, olive oil, gnocchi, the lamb on the winter menu. Really, I could go on and on. I sort of drift off into a trance every time I'm there. The chatter is always loud due to the size, so as you sip you wine, eat your food, chat with your friends, and listen to the music, you sort of drift off in to this happy calm. There really isn't an experience that even come close to this in my opinion.

Pros: Food, wine, staff, food, food, wine, ambiance

Cons: If you get there after 7:00 PM you wind up waiting a while for a table, sometimes an hour, but they'll usually take you cell # and call you when a table is available. Well worth the wait!

bradissmo, inama, cabernet. along with some of their cured meats and crostini. a beautiful way to start or end the night....

We arrived on Clinton St. at 11am on Sunday in hopes of eating at Clinton St. Bakery but with the two hour wait there we decided to walk across the street and ended up at Frankies. We lucked out and despite the tiny dining area, they were able to accomodate 6 of us and a baby. They didn't have a highchair but we were able to pull the stroller up to the table. The brunch menu was small, but had good options. Several of us had the french toast which was by far the best french toast any of us had ever had. We also shared several side orders of bacon which was cooked perfectly. One person had the granola with fruit and yogurt and another had the fritatta which she said was great. The staff was friendly and accomodating and we couldn't be more happy that we walked across the street and found Frankies.

With the proliferation of restaurants on Clinton Street it was a welcome surprise to find Frankie's 17 distinguishes itself for food, service, and atmosphere. The pork chop was perfect and the eggplant sandwich is a classic done well. Try the cauliflower - wow. With two crostini, a side, two entrees and a half liter of wine will still went home spending well under $100.

If you love stepping into a cozy space with an old-fashioned warm feel, Frankie's is for you. Sure, it's intimate (love the tin walls), but it works. And the food matches the atmosphere perfectly. We've gone for brunch and for an early dinner and it was delicious both times. Highly suggest the house-made tagliatelle with braised lamb ragu (just melts in your mouth) as well as the roasted beet and avocado balsamic vinegar salad. The crostinis are small so it's fun to try a few and there is a nice selection of cheeses. Perhaps the best part is the reasonable wine list (the house wine is actually quite good as well!)

I went to Frankies last week and am still thinking about it. What a great little cozy restaurant. The cheese and wine were really good. The Gnocci was a little heavy but had fantastic flavor. But the crostini were awesome! I feel like I have an INO on the east side now but with even more food and an even cozier feel. Nice job guys! Much like many of the other people who have reviewed this new neighborhood restaurant I have to say I will be a new regular there as well.

We had to wait a little while for our table - so the bartender gave us a free mini wine tasting! By the time we were seating we knew exactly what we wanted to drink. We couldn't decide what to eat so we got pretty much one of everything (ha ha - maybe not - but we got a lot of stuff) and it was *all* good. Yay.

This place is great. Everything on the menu that I've tried has been excellent (simple ,clean & fresh). Especially the homeade pastas.The service is good too, friendly, knowledgable and professional. Also, the French Toast served at brunch is some of the best I've had anywhere. I'll be back over and over again.

i've eaten here a few times and most of the time it's pretty good. unfortunately, i ordered a dish for sunday brunch which was not a typical sunday brunch item. i shared it with others. the dish was unusually seasoned and my group of friends (four) got sick from it. my advice is if you eat there, pick something that has high turn-over for less risk of spoilage. i wish they wouldn't keep bad food and hide it with seasoning. except for this one-time bad experience, it's a decent place.

I met my friend here for dinner one night. I had the sausage with sweet peppers, which were okay. I found the dessert interesting: red wine plum with marscapone; the wine selection was decent. Overall: there isn't anything extrodinary, but it was fine.

The LES branch from Broolklyn, this is great place to drop in for any reason (I took my mom). This place serves the one-two combo of simple but extremely well-executed dishes and decent & affordable wine. My inner-oenephile was amazed to find a place as inexpensive as this serving reds chilled in a fridge. The attention doesn't stop at the wine and goes far into the menu with their spuntino (snacks in italian).... with extra, extra virgin olive oils and fresh ingredients. I started w/a apple/gorgonzola watercress salad, but I'm definitely stealing the idea of my mom's salad for my next soiree: fig puree/pecorino romano on watercress. We both had the pasta special (tagliatelle), and a top-notch lentil soup...all very well made. The red brick, tin-ceilings and dark wood talbes are perfectly cozy for a date, but quarters are a little tight, so go early.... I found the service efficient, pleasant, and attentive. I can easily see why these guys got nominated for best new restaurant.

I have been to Frankies 457 in Brooklyn at least 5 times for dinner and have always had an amazing meal. I couldn't wait to be able to walk to Frankies 17 to get my italian food fix. Thanks for opening another one nearby! I agree...the gnocchi is delicious and the cavatelli is even better! This is the place to go for real italian food.

What owners Frank Castronovo and Falcinelli started in a Carroll Gardens storefront, they've copied in this tiny Lower East Side space. The interior's simplicity--old-time tile floors and exposed brick walls--are part…
