Great tasty authentic Italian cuisine at a reasonable price. Home made salad dressing. Perfect portions . Great experienced staff working as a team. Best Tiramisu actually using teal cream & robust coffee.

We arrived at 6.30pm to find EVERY table taken. We got in. But a line formed on the sidewalk after that. Is there any better recommendation than that. This is good Italian cooking that your Mamma would know and serve. Its also the kind of place dying out in the States as multi national, chains take over. Family run business... More

We had a wonderful experience at Franco and Vinnys. We made reservations a month in advance because of our large gathering of 30 people. They accomodated us with several large tables and with it being a busy time of the evening...7pm...it was a challenge for them. They took care of us perfectly and attended to all our needs. The pizza,... More

Best Italian food I have had in a very long time. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting which was aligned with the family friendly employees. We will definately keep them on our list of musts for Fort Lauderdale.

I have been going to this restaurant a couple of times a year for the las 2 decades. Food is great!!! We always have pizza, but in general all food is great!! Unfortunately service has decline severely lately. It feels like they just want to get you out of the restaurant as quickly as they can. This time they actually... More

A very good Italian restaurant. Has a great selection of all your favorites. Can get a little crowded, but usually ok. Had the meatball pasta which was very good. Big serving. Has good bread on the side. Service was good. Found prices to be slightly higher than just a normal restaurant but not extreme. Overall, was very good food.

We chose Franco and Vinny's because it was close to our hotel and after a busy day sightseeing we didn't want too walk far. We had seen the restaurant previously as we walked back from the beach and from the outside it didn't look especially inviting but decided to give it a try. So glad we did as it was... More

Don't judge a book by the cover right? The building is fine and along Sunshine (busy st) but what's inside is incredible and a throwback to good old Italian big city restaurants. Service was good and meal was excellent. We had a table of 8 and Everyone loved their meal, the wine lists and the deserts. We will be back!!!

Thank cmk44
