    Pizza is soooooo good
  • Cole K.
    Everything you've heard is true. The pizzas and pastas are both damn near perfect. Order lots, and let them guide you through the big Italian wine list — you're sure to find a nice bottle.

    Clam pie. Spaghetti. Usually everything else.

    Their energy comes from con-ed solutions and is derived 35 percent new wind and 65 percent small hydro (according to menu)

    Excellent experience. Kale salad, hot pepper pizza both stood out from the crowd.

    I wasn't blown away. We had the tomato sausage pie as well as the prosciutto pie. Neither seemed worthy of the $20+/pie price tag. The service was great though.

    Awesome clam pizza, just don't be high and goto the bathroom downstairs - you'll get lost.

    This just might be my favorite pizza joint in the city. Wood grilled perfection. Come with a party, order everything and share!

    After your wine and salad, it's the best $80 pizza you'll ever have.

    Consistently the best pizza in North Slope though do not miss the small plates and pastas which never disappoint.

    The clam pizza is as good as the reviews with large pieces of clams on a white pizza. The sausage pizza is ok and the beef tongue and lamb terrine with buttered bread is the highlight of the menu.

    Just stopped for a glass of wine. Very nice, and good service, but not super cheap.

    The pizza is the winner here, but the wine selection is great and features numerous biodynamic & organic wines.

    Franny’s is definitely casual, it’s still slightly more sophisticated. Order: Bucatini, no matter what it comes with; clam pizza; tomato, basil; buffalo mozzarella pizza.
  • Chelsea R.
    Chelsea RenaudMay 9, 2016
    Excellent Neopolitan pies - the clam pie is a must (and the meatballs, and mushroom mozz). Franny’s also does excellent pastas and salads--Puttanesca, Maccheroni, onion Zeppole.

    Everything is delicious here - but everyone should try the clam pie at least once.

    Do yourself a favor and leave room for the panna cotta. Holy crap! Finish off w/an espresso and some amari.

    Get as many pizzas as possible. The rest of the menu is good but pizza is the main event. They give you pizza scissors!

    The best pizza in the city. The crust is magnificent and the toppings are first rate too. Superb antipasti and interesting wines. It will cost more than you expect. You won't care.

    I'm piling on here, but the clam pizza is outrageously good. The sauce is claim juice mixed with a little dairy to thicken it up and it's amazing.

    Cozy spot to meet with friends and catch up. Terrine was insanely good, first time having clam pie- not bad, but also not the star.

    Nicely crisp and a little char on the bottom crust and a poofy, bubbly edge... One of the best Neapolitan pies in NYC.

    The worst restaurant with the best cookbook. Totally confounding dining experience with strange portions and even stranger behaviors. Skip and make it better at home.

    The service was awful; hostess and server! The food, overrated. We had the zeppoli app and sausage and meatball pizza. It was good, but nothing to rave about. The crust was the best part!

    Good bartenders with good wine recs, but cocktails can be quite dry.

    Yes, the pizza. But also some of the best and most creative sides I've eaten. Favorite way to order for two: 3-4 sides, 1 pizza, and a canolo!

    "Top-notch pizza, but don’t sleep on the rest of the menu either. Salt cod croquettes, slow cooked leeks with grilled salame, pasta or maybe polenta with shrimp, shelling beans, and chilies." Read more

    Franny’s is known as one of the most popular pizza joints in New York, and rightly so for its delicious pizza and wine. Expect to wait when you come here, but it’s well worth the wait to try it out. Read more

    The Flatbush pizza spot is also home to the Cappelletti Elisir Novasalus, a bold and exceptionally complex amaro (Italian liqueur) with a rich red wine base and a shockingly bitter finish. Read more

    The small plates are always changing and always great. The clam pizza is delicious. Love the wine, cocktails and fantastic amaro selection. But what's most under appreciated are the delicious pastas.

    Suuuuucks. So boring. Farm to table blah blah blah but not worth the $17 for THEIR 12" pie.

    All of the rustic, wood-fired pizzas at Franny's are worth a try, but the clam pie is the knock-out dish here. It is quite possibly New York's best clam pizza. Read more

    Franny's is one of the few places in NY (or the US I should say) that knows how to really cool pasta. They use the best quality pasta cooked perfectly al dente.

    It's hard to go wrong with the menu here. But if you're like to go particularly right, look no further than the pancetta & apple mostarda crostini. Get two.
