The staff are passionate about the service and sharing information about the food. I enjoyed the family like atmosphere and the desserts are made in house. Yum!!

Franco's has a great menu, very good service and moderate prices. The choices are Italian but there are lots of them plus interesting specials. A small place but very friendly and welcoming. They do have a bar or you can bring your own wine

We had dinner and again, all three of us ordered specials, and never got to the "meat" of the menu. They serve soup or salad with all meals and the Caesar salad was really good. We also had a Calamari appetizer. This is a family owned restaurant and you can get pizzas to an 8oz. filet. We have been coming... More

Ate here twice in two days, it is my brother's favorite restaurant in the area. Lunch special was very good, dinner special was excellent. Reasonable cork fee.

Based on the fact that my colleagues always take me here at least once on a trip, it must have something going for it! I've always had good meals here and generally pick from the specials ... But I do wish they would write them down as it is hard to take them all in when just recited. They end... More

This place is walking distance near a friend's house, so that's what we did for dinner...disappointing as the food was $$$ for what we got. Portion sizes were meh, I could've went to the Olive Garden and got the never ending pasta bowl for less. While the bread was decent, I just wasn't blown away with the food.

Our Son loves the place and took us there, but we were highly disappointed in the food at Franco's. Atmosphere was nice and the service was acceptable but the food was not all that good. Sorry, but I would not recommend Franco's to anyone.

This small local family restaurant has a chef who used to work at the Four Seasons (or equivalent) before striking out on their own and making a tremendous meal available at terrific prices. I have eaten there at night and for lunch, with lunch being the most price friendly (it should cost about $14-17 including tip per person.) They have... More

We were very surprised that this little restaurant had such great food and great atmosphere! We have tried different dishes over the past year and have really enjoyed every one. I'm partial to the veal marsala and a good red wine. They had a musician there one night and I have to say that this restaurant set the bar HIGH... More
