Visited Franco's in the Easter break. Very busy little place. The food was ok and I would visit again but we did find as a party of six we were cramped in and I found the seats quite uncomfortable. The food was reasonably priced as too the wine. The staff were friendly enough but not the best italian I've been... More

Went for an evening meal and my wife had the special... Which wasn't! I had a pizza which was very average. The starters were quite greasy and tasteless. Add to this the over inflated bill! :@ I've had better Italian food from a takeaway, in fact that's what this place is - a takeaway masquerading as a restaurant! :-S Won't... More

Me and my family come here regularly as we love it amazing pizza (my favourite) and my family always enjoy the food & deserts they order, nice homely feel to the place, we always try and get the table next to the window it has a great view. We go fortnightly :)

We were there last weekend and we had a great meal. The food is fresh and authentic Italian and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The wine list is also excellent, featuring many wines from small producers from most Italian regions. We had a bottle of biodynamic Brunello di Montalcino that tasted great and came at a very fair price.... More
