After the success of Frank's on Second Avenue, Frank Prisinzano opened this smaller, pizza-oriented offshoot with a garden out back. But none of Prisinzano's enterprises stay small for long; this one expanded into the next-door space, so now there's more room for neighborhood regulars to enjoy the thin-crust, wood-oven-baked personal pies. The classic marinara is lavishly sauced, while the cheeseless Bianca is liberally brushed with truffle oil and flecked with rosemary.

Great ambiance with straightforward but delicious Italian food. We had the spaghetti with lemon and a piece of garlic bread with mozzarella. Both were incredibly tasty and simple with very few ingredients. My only complaint is that the garlic bread is sold by the piece vs. a more shareable quantity. Overall, the prices are fair and they are a great late night spot with service until 2 am on week nights.
