Frankie Fusilli is the father of Ara Fusilli. Frankie is featured in The Sims 2 (GBA) as the main antagonist, and The Sims 2 (Nintendo DS) as a gangster, trying to foil the player's plans to help Mayor Honest Jackson. After the player defeats him, Frankie becomes a regular guest at the hotel and can be moved in as a guest. His secret is that he prefers Thai food to Italian.
His appearance and secret are probably a reference to the American gangster Al Capone.
Regardless of his daughter, Ara Fusilli, hanging around the hotel female players can romance him and Ara won't freak out.
