What's not to love? Great pizza, great traditional Italian dishes, homemade marinara, tables full of families and seniors, servers that are friendly & relaxed--Franco & Vinny's is my go-to fave for FLL L/O's! I love eating here, and so will you!

Wow - what a great restaurant,,,,not only the food but the owner and entire staff. We had an incredible dinner from the appetizer through the after dinner espresso.

Good location, situated at the bottom of the bridge. Went a couple of times during our recent vacation as hotel food very pricey. Pizza was very nice, cooked fresh,nice and crispy. Calamari and pasta also worth trying. Drinks were reasonable and service was good. Surroundings were bland and basic but overall it's worth giving it a go.

The food was okay. We went because it was very close to our hotel. Also close to the beach. My biggest gripe is that they can't split the check. How hard is it to split a check? Otherwise, would have given a 4 instead of a 3.

We always stay at Gallery One and this restaurant is very close by. We have walked by it in the past and every year we say we are going to eat there, we decided to go for a dinner the night before we flew home from our vacation. We arrived and were seated at a table by the front window.... More

Walked in not sure what to expect.Was pleasantly surprised to find an authentic Italian menu to pick from. They have salads,appetizers and an excellent selection of choices from chicken marsala to spaghetti. If you get a chance this is a must!!

Might be the best meal we had in Fort Lauderdale. The grilled calamari was amazing. Pizza was great. Very nice crust. Old school atmosphere. Great service. Asked for steamed class. Was told it's not on the menu but it to worry since they have clams they would make them. Best clams I've had in a long time. A must visit.

Stayed locally and was looking for a casual place to grab dinner. The aroma was definitely "welcoming Italian" and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We went with the pizza and loved the thin crust and fresh ingredients.

Recommended by every local we ran into and you COULD walk there from hotel. Wife and I got Chicken Carbonara(recommended), Just didnt do it for me or her, but that could have been just us. Place was packed with steady stream of walk-ins. Little pricey but.... clean and obviously Italian.

Thank Stripeshrt
