This tiny Cypress restaurant is the kind of place where the tablecloths are checkered; the waiters earnestly smack fingers against lips when describing linguine; and Frank, Dino and Pagliacci roar without rest. Franco's has an extensive Italian menu-all your major pastas, subs and even a surprising selection of veal dishes-but leave space for the cheesecake, one of the best ever to grace this world: thick, almost like tiramisu, but so strong with cinnamon you can feel it sizzle on your tongue.
