Well, my wife told me all her NASA co-workers said we must go there! Ok! Finally, we went for lunch - servings were huge! Wednesday special - Pork Marsala - Delish! The salad, I should have said "light on the dressing" but it was fresh and cool. The sandwiches are huge too and diners around us raved about the lasagna.... More

I have been to Italy multiple times for extended stays and my husband is Italian. This place is AUTHENTIC!! Capri style cuisine. Rigatoni del Mare is delicious. The pasta is cooked perfectly al dente. The gnocchi is like little pillows. The bruschetta is perfect. Go here!

This small, family-owned Italian restaurant tucked into the corner of a very small strip center at Nasa Road 1 and El Camino Real is a true delight. Very tasty pasta dishes and a smattering of gourmet-quality entrees make for a fond remembrance of Italy for those who have lived or traveled there. While dinner selections are just a bit on...

After thirty something years Frenchies still does it right. Authentic, delicious food! Reasonably priced. Counter order at lunch, table service at dinner.

While working in the area for a few months I decided to try out Frenchies. The chicken piccata was awesome. Melts in your mouth. Loved the atmosphere. It's been around a long time and it showed. It showed in the awesome autographed pictures from astronauts and famous people. Loved it. Wasn't fancy. Doesn't need to be. It was clean and... More

Lived here far too long to not have actually been here; it's an institution here in Clear Lake and it's been on my list of places to go forever. So when I was invited to go with coworkers, I jumped at the chance! It's definitely not what I thought it was; I assumed you were seated and a waiter took... More

We had an excellent experience at Frenchie's for a dinner party of 6. Our group had veal Marsala, piccata, parmesan, fettuccini Alfredo and lasagna. The veal was nicely pounded thin, tender and cooked just right. The lasagna was one of the best, no the best, I have ever had and I'm pretty picky about my lasagna. The wait staff was... More

This place has the best sandwiches and pasta! Always packed and sometimes a bit of a wait but well worth it!

Service is beyond slow, nice people but S-L-O-W. As long as you don't mind waiting, waiting, and waiting some more AFTER you have been seated, yes seated, then you will enjoy the large serving portions when you meal finally arrives. We were finished with our meal, awaiting for a to-go box and check at least another 20 minutes. Nice people,... More

Just like eating at a friendly family home in Italy. The owners often meet you at the door and treat you like family the moment you walk in. The waitstaff are very knowledgable about the food and wine - strongly consider their menu suggestions and specials - you won't go wrong. I love their shrimp champagne that comes with delicious...
