Fodor's Review

When Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli opened this pioneering Italian-American restaurant in a former social club, Carroll Gardens was a culinary backwater. Much has evolved in the decade-plus since, but what hasn't changed is the small but well-conceived menu of shareable salads (many with vegetables roasted or marinated with the Frankies' own Sicilian olive oil), handmade pastas like the cavatelli with hot sausage and browned sage butter, and crusty sandwiches that ask to be split and shared. When the weather's nice, try to score a seat in the gravel-lined backyard.
