No seats, no atmosphere, no booze. A menu shorter than Paris Hilton's attention span. A location only a strip mall developer could love. No amenities or accoutrements, no bells, whistles, or dancing bears. Only the best goddamn pizza on the planet. For 52 years, six days a week (Mondays off), Frankie's has been dishing up pies that are as elemental in their construction as they are satisfying. Nothing fancy here; you won't find smoked salmon pizzas or Thai chicken pizzas. Frankie's toppings are simple and offer few choices —tomato sauce, meats, veggies, cheese. They're all good enough. But what makes Frankie's pizzas the best on the goddamn planet is the crust—a little crunchy, a little chewy, remarkably light, with a faint char from the oven, and tasting of fresh-baked bread. Better still, a large deluxe tops out at $20. Who needs atmosphereç

He probably has an interest in tutto pizza.Frankies is hands down the best.How many awards does tottos have? I don't know, but after living in Brooklyn for 10 years, I'm a pretty good judge of pies.I have had tutto's and it was OK. Ambiance was so-so.The best I could say about their pie is that it is mediocre at best. I forgot, tutto's location...If you want to be safe walking from your car to your seat....don't forget your gun or you may well regret it. Its in a cesspool of a neighboorhood.Frankies is the best in Miami by far, if you just want great pie, just count all their awards!

This is the best pizza in Miami. If you like your pizza with no frills and your crust crispy yet tasty, then this is nirvana for the pizza purist. I can eat this pizza every day and not get bored.

Frankie's is pizza to go. It directly competes with the big pizza chains. It is a very good alternative since the toppings are fresher and tastier. Drop by if you live near by or if you love driving.

Ok, first off let me say this, if you want to go out with some of your friends and eat some pizza, this is NOT THE PLACE TO GO. The description is no joke, there is no where to sit. There is however some concrete tables out back with some umbrellas, which look really nice and at first seem like a good idea. Two bites into your pizza however you'll soon realize that a throng of mosquitos having taken more bites off of you! So if you want to try to this place then order ahead and take it home. Now, about the pizza. I was a bit skeptical about the pizza because a visit to their website shows no pictures of their product that they're so famous for....what's with that? The pizza is a really big rectangle, and the slices are cut into 3 X 3 inch squares. The toppings are fresh, the cheese and sauce are tasty, and yes, the crust is nothing like you've had at any other pizza joint. Overall, the pizza itself does not make up for the lack of atmosphere....so sorry Mr. reviewer, but you're wrong. If you want some of the best pizza you've ever tasted, then forgo the papa johns, the dominos, and yes even the spris and go to tutto pizza....you will not regret it. 1753 SW 3rd Ave, Miami, FL.
