Franco’s Pasta Cucina serves made-to-order Southern Italian dishes that have made life wonderful for Irvine’s office drones long before the luxe lonchera craze saved their lunchtimes. Ordering is preposterously easy—pictures showed what was available, a dry-erase board announced any specials, and that was that. But namesake Franco decided to retire to Italy a couple of years back, and the beautiful Gloria Mogollón—who looks more like an Univisión news anchor than the tough cookie she is—took over, keeping the menu, adding new dishes and tweaking according to customer tastes.
