You’re bound to see a lot of families at Frasca, and it’s earned its reputation as a neighborhood staple. The wood-fired pizzas are reliably delicious, and there are enough Italian favorites rounding out the menu to make everyone happy. Try the Italian sausage pizza with crumbled fennel sausage and sauteed onions, or the rigatoni gigante served in a great tomato cream sauce. Bottles of wine are half off on Mondays, which should instantly make you feel better about riding the brown line here from work at rush hour.
