Franco's is one of the best restaurants I have ever dined in....everything is made from scratch and is so rich and bold in flavor. It's a small, cozy, space perfect for any special occasion. We each enjoyed the bruschetta before a couple house salads. I had a duck ravioli that was an amazing special!!! My wife enjoyed the linguini with... More

To start, the food is amazing. My girlfriend and I came here to have a nice dinner. Our expectations were more than exceeded. We had the combination pasta, lamb and chicken combo, and finished it off with a fine bottle of wine. He also randomly surprised us with a desert sampler. All I can say is wow! Great food and...

Went here for my birthday dinner with my friend! We both loved the food and couldn't get over how well we were treated. If you like great Italian food and great people, this is the restaurant to try! I will be back for sure, more than just once.

I think this over rated restaurant in Scottsdale it's not so good after all . We eat a few times there , but each time the food was the same . No taste and nothing special but very expensive . Just don't go there . Don't worth it !

I took my family out for dinner and I promise you that we'll be back. We were greeted by the owner Franco, and his lovely wife and daughter. They took amazing care of us and the service was absolutely 5 stars. If you are looking for an authentic Italian Caffe, look no further!

We visited Franco's restaurant again last week. The menu has changed to accommodate some new fall ingredients. The meal started with traditional tomato bruschetta and fresh cut Parmesan-Reggiano cheese. I had one of the special hand made pastas available that night, being Tortelloni Marscapone. Tortelloni is a larger version of tortellini, a ring shaped pasta stuffed with meat or cheese.... More

We went for dinner here and had a great time. Even though we came a bit late, and were the last one's to leave to restaurant, the staff treated us great and were always there to refill a water glass or whatever. I really enjoyed my appetizers and the pasta dish I had was very good as well, though a... More
