No, they aren’t the Pep Boys (that’s Manny, Moe, and Jack). Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi are three Italian friends who started a popular Mountain View eatery back in the 1950s, which was replicated several times on the Peninsula and in the South Bay. Their first East Bay location, on Dublin Boulevard, is a family-friendly restaurant offering standard Italian fare. There’s a multitude of pasta courses (with reduced prices at lunchtime) and specialized pizzas. (Carnivores should sample Tina’s Too Too Much, with salami, pepperoni, sausage, and linguica.) For groups of four to six, try Frankie’s Friendly Dinner, which includes a large salad, a cheese pizza, a platter of spaghetti or rigatoni, and a whole roasted chicken, all for $60 ($40 on Wednesday). Lunch and dinner daily.
