Fausto's was reclaimed from a store space in a tiny strip mall, and the longer-than-wide configuration of the room makes for less than perfect comfort. But at lunch and early dinner the place is hard to penetrate, because for very low prices they turn out decent versions of the most unchallenging style of old-fashioned New Orleans Italian food. The smooth, sweet red sauce and the abundance of mellow cheese makes the food here appealing even to a child's palate. However, they are capable of more here. Once the early-bird dinner crowd is gone, the menu doubles in price and quadruples in interest. While you can continue to get the basic pastas and parmigiana dishes, you'd be better off experimenting with the seafood creations, which can be very good. The same is true of the veal and beef dishes, which don't stray from the familiar very much but are interesting enough. This is the kind of restaurant that attracts regulars who fall in love with the food and the easy-going casualness of the management and staff. Not brilliant, but fun enough.
