Review of Frankie’s Pizza
You’ll find the neon Frankie’s Pizza sign on Hunter Street in the cbd, right around a spot usually reserved for dodgy late night clubs and kebab shops.
Descend the stairs, notice the rows of garlic hanging from the roof and enter this retro pizzeria joint. The interior is kitsch, as we’ve grown to expect from this crew, complete with red checkered tablecloths, candles dripping wax down chianti bottles, a black and white tiled floor and old-school photos covering the walls. The smell of pizza fills the air. It’s warm, it’s friendly and it’s inviting.
Frankie’s Pizza serves, yep, you guessed it – pizza, and only pizza. But, they’ve gone all New Yorker and decided they can sell it by the slice. $5 for a slice of pizza. And, it’s served on a paper plate with a paper napkin. Well, what do you expect for $5? The pizzas are neapolitan style and should you prefer, you can buy a whole one for sixteen bucks.
The pizza menu pales in comparison to the drinks menu. A whole 3 pages are dedicated to top notch and craft beers, and there’s some 50 odd bottles of Italian vino as well as a few Italian style Australian favourites.
Before long, you might decide to check out what’s hiding behind those swinging doors. Here you’ll find a dimly lit dive bar, complete with pin ball machines and poster lined walls. It’s all rock’n’roll here.
With a closing time of 3am, Frankie’s Pizza is a great late night spot.
