Ok...I really hate to give this sweet Italian Couple a 3, but I must call it like I see it! It's really not terrible...just not great. I suppose it's really about managing expectations, right? Lunch would be better so you're not disappointed that you spent your evening in a bright, dingy, worn out little place. I really can't classify it... More

Ok, how this place came to be named Frenchies after the owner is named Frankie, I'll never know. But, who cares. Here one can get some of the best Italian food served in Houston. I would venture to assert that the food is better than we have experienced in Italy. The eggplant parmigana is baked in its own baking dish... More

Frenchie's is authentic Italian food and family owned/operated. The red snapper with crab meat special is my favorite! When we are in the area, this is the only restaurant we go to. You go to Frenchie's for the food not the decor. This restaurant has been in this same location for years!

Our company has ordered catered lunches for here for years & they are always wonderful. Last week, my husband & I decided to try it for dinner & we were not disappointed. Huge portions & very, very delicious. Nice, quiet atmosphere. The homemade bread is decadent. I would recommend the canneloni stuffed with meat.

The food here was amazing. True hole in wall. Veal Sorrento was great especially the sauce. Service was slow and a bit chaotic.

Frenchie and his family really should be considered the top Italian restaurant in all of Houston. The carbonara was so rich and the eggplant Parmesan was fantastic. I would go again and again.

The food here is great and the atmosphere is even better. A true Clear Lake staple... You must visit if you are in town! The owners are hilarious and quite endearing!

In town for a week, looking for a place to eat and found this small restaurant on nasa road 1. From the outside no big deal but decided to go in....there I was, in the middle of the famous Piazzetta of the island of Capri...and then....heaven on earth! Food that brought me back old memories of my several trips to... More

Frenchies Italian can be a confusing name but fear not the food is authentic. I have had the lasagna and it is good but my favorite is the chicken and mushroom crepes. They are fantastic and better than what I have had at any French restaurant. Lots of white meat chicken and large mushrooms and a creamy sauce. The family... More

Our first time here, just moved to the area and our neighbors recommended it. The decor is a little tacky but the food is amazing. The garlicky dip is spicy and fragrant. The gnocchi were light and fluffy, and the carbonara was the best we'd had. Will try the desserts next time as they're supposedly great. Prices were higher than... More
