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!!!

My boyfriend and I were staying at W Fort Lauderdale hotel. Needless to say that the hotel was amazing: room, view, decoration, so everything else we expected to have the same quality. That was not the case with Franco & Vinny's. The location of the place is terrible. The ambience is quiet, yes, but nothing out of the ordinary. Aesthetically,... More

Travel day, arrived Ft Lauderdale about 7 pm with rental car. As we drove around looking for a place to eat my wife saw Franco and Vinnie's. Awesome place! Courteous, friendly staff. Pasta and sauce were perfect as was chianti by the glass. Do not miss this place. We will be returning for a visit before our vacation is over.

Echoing several other reviews--ignoring a really unimpressive street view will lead you to a great meal at a very reasonable cost. Inside, nicely done dining room and speedy service of a great meal. Hubby had a huge chicken Caesar salad for 14.95 (LOTS of chicken!) and I had the fettucini carbonara($18)served with a side salad(included) with their house balsamic. Decent... More

It was my second time at Franco and Vini's. Large group, lively place,good service and delicious pasta. True Italian style.A little pricy but it's worth it.

We met our server Chanda at another restaurant where she is a server. She told us about the wonderful homemade baked manicotti and baked ziti at the restaurant she works at night. As we walked up we thought do we really want to go in. Everyone greeted us. We were seated promptly in Chanda's station. We received a greeting fit... More

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. We started with their wonderful garlic cheese bread. The salad came with their fantastic homemade balsamic vinaigrette . For my entree, I had their special of wild caught salmon grilled in a...
