Frenchie's Italian Restaurant

This place has been popular with NASA folks since the '80s. Tucked away in a nondescript shopping center, it's a small, cozy, family-owned neighborhood Italian spot. There are some great values at lunchtime - overstuffed sandwiches on homemade bread can be had for under $10. The fettucine Alfredo, lasagna, manicotti and veal keep the regulars coming back, and the tiramisu and zabaglione are the real deal and not to be missed.
