I don't know how this place got such good ratings but I sure got a bad taste in my mouth from today's experience there. And I can't even wash it out because the waitress never brought our drinks. Okay, let's start at the beginning.

My girlfriend and I have been curious about this place for days. Finally we ventured out to Franny's for some of this glorious pizza we heard about from a tattooed beauty we met in Joyce Coffee Shop (always a good place to drop in, unlike Franny's)

Right off the bat, the air of pretentiousness left me gasping for breath. The menu read of "lettuces" and "cannolo" (the singular of cannoli) - not how people talk, just their way of showing self-importance. After being seated at one of the smallest tables-for-two in town, I pulled the empty table next to us closer for some elbow room. The hostess promptly swooped in to pull it away from us about 3 inches. I just pulled it back and she left it alone for the rest of our uneventful time there. When I say 3 inches, that's what I mean. That was all the room left to us between the other "table-for-two." I wondered what people did when the place was packed and someone in the booth wanted to get out for a restroom visit.

We ordered the anchovy pizza and SODA which she NEVER brought (at least she didn't charge us). After several inquiries by my girlfriend, we happened upon an issue by trial and error. The waitress explained to us that if the menu doesn't MENTION cheese, there's no chesse on the pizza. Lame. Not exactly what I call informative. The way this menu neglects to mention important things like CHEESE AT A PIZZA PLACE and overbears with its "lettuces," you'd think it was written by Frasier Crane with A.D.D. When we asked the waitress a simple question about ingredients, she replied with something like "Oh yes that would be a yellow ground leaf from the mountains of the Himylayas, imported exclusively to us on the backs of African geese at 14,000 feet above sea level" or some like verbose answer. Just tell me what the pizza is seasoned with!!!

The pizza came to us unsliced. That was weird. Is this how things are done in Italy and I just don't know about it? Did they forget to slice everyone's pizza? Is this their kitschy gimmick? Slice your own pizza? With a steak knife?? Aren't we being put out enough with the cramped space, a table-obsessed hostess, menus with their noses in the air and waitresses too busy being self-congradulatory that they forget to bring your soda? THINK UP A BETTER GIMMICK AND CUT MY FREAKIN' PIZZA!!

The pizza was okay. No big deal. In fact, it was delicious but it didn't wow me. Never going back there again because for a small pizza that didn't blow my mind, $16.00 is pretty steep. If this is your favorite hangout and you love it so much that my review has you seething, feel free to flame me with a comment knowing that I won't be back to read it. Speaking of not coming back, that's the last time I waste an hour at Franny's.

Franny's makes the best pizza in NY. The wood oven is one of the things that contributes to the amazing flavor of the pie, as well as the fresh, organic, and locally grown ingredients. The ambiance is nice and relaxed. The inside is chic with a long bar and view of the wood oven. During the Summer, the backyard offers a quiet, relaxed, shaded, solace from the busy city. Inaddition to pizza Franny's offers some original salads, soups and deserts. Things that you won't find anywhere else. I highly recommend it.

PROS: Quality of food, flavor, excellent service, chic environment
CONS: No pizza sold by the slice, and pricey

Franny's is good pizza. They have really great thin crust pizza and also really good toppings. Everytime I've eaten here I have been impressed at how fresh everything seems. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes good food :)

Franny's is located on Flatbush Ave. on the border between Prospect Heights and Park Slope. The place is usually packed with locals looking for a tasty thin-crust pizza.

The toppings are seasonal, mushroom and root vegies in the Fall and greens galore in the Spring. Franny's seeks out local suppliers and each pie is a wonderful creation.
