Ate here the night before the Pensacola Marathon (I only ran the half). Excellent pasta, ice cold beer, and a great family atmosphere. I had Chicken Parm that was delicious and hit the spot. Guarantee I will return here on my next trip.

Franco has been producing fine Italian Food for decades in Northwest Florida. We love dining here regularly. The dishes are authentic as is the atmosphere. Staff is friendly and courteous and the service is snappy. Down to earth and delicious!
