Part of Frankies Spuntino Restaurant Group

A New York City classic, Frankies 457 Spuntino has served impossibly delicious, effortlessly elegant takes on Italian-American cuisine for nearly two decades. It’s a place noted for its warmth, kindness, and feeling—a reflection of its beloved chef-owners, Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli. New York Times editor Sam Sifton, in his final review as restaurant critic for the paper, wrote, “The best meal I had on the job? It was in the garden of Frankies 457 on a summer evening. Nothing was wrong. Everything was right. It would have been nice if it could have gone on forever.”
