Frank & Angie’s Pizzeria is a solidly Italian-American ode to two great loves: Frank Sinatra and Momma. A scratch kitchen, fresh ingredients and family recipes are the staples of this eatery. The iconic pizzeria started serving some of Austin’s first good pizza pies in 1995 after Mike ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson opened the door to find the previous owner looking to sell the space – then called Brisket – due to a divorce. Since then, Frank & Angie’s stayed just about the same – unchanged for the better.
Since 1995, the pizzeria has been a favorite Austin spot for affordable red-sauce classics, New York-style pizzas, sandwiches, salads and desserts. The wine list is selective, featuring great Italian and American wines that won’t break the bank. The owners have Sicilian heritage and an East Coast upbringing, which means family recipes make up the approachable Italian-American menu. It’s not one of those ‘complicated-mixed up cats,’ it’s just easy eating Sicilian-American food. It also retains the honor of being among Austin’s favorite pizza slingers.
Frank & Angie’s is a perfect laid back (and affordable) dinner or lunch spot. The lunch special is a two-topping pizza with focaccia for a wallet-pleasing $6.99. A limited, but well curated, wine selection is available at prices that won’t make you need to drink the whole bottle. All dough, focaccia and sauces are prepared in house. It’s quintessential, no frills dining that sources the best East Coast ingredients.
“Flat pies and a 50s vibe at this throwback pizzeria that celebrates all things Italian-American.” – Matthew Odam
Favorites include the Angie’s Combo pizza — with provolone, eggplant, roasted garlic, sun dried tomatoes, pecorino romano cheese (we add sausage). We also love the classic Scorsese pie with mozzarella, double pepperoni and pecorino romano cheese. We also love the La Motta calzone with house Italian meatballs and ricotta with the [huge] Angiepasto salad. The Fellini sandwich with herb vinaigrette, eggplant, red onion, green bell pepper, sun dried tomatoes, green leaf lettuce and provolone always hits the spot. (It’s a best seller for many delicious reasons, y’all.) Of course, we can’t restrain from the Holy Cannoli for dessert. During the winter, the minestrone and lasagna warm up the cold air.
Open to all from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday. Frank & Angie’s is also available for pickup and delivery in a limited delivery zone (limited to 78703 zip code and starts at 4 pm on weekends). Pro-tip: order Frank and Angie’s Muffulettas and pies for football games – no better way to watch some pigskin than with devious food and a clean kitchen.
