Had a very enjoyable dinner, excellent wine and delicious food. Chose two mains from the Specials board and were not disappointed. £60 for two including fine wine, two mains, water and a fantastic tiramisu to share and tip. Very nice - thanks

We had a lovely evening at this intimate Italian style restaurant. The service is good the pizzas excellent but I would stay away from the ribs which weren't great. Otherwise a lovely evening in a good restaurant thanks!

Always enjoy coming to Franco's and usually choose a special as have never been disappointed with them. Had a calamarata pasta with mussel dish and my friend had prawn and courgette risotto. Both were lovely and generous portions. The place was busy but we were served in a friendly, efficient manner- a special mention to Franco's nephew who was charming!... More

Great food and very personable,knowledgeable staff. Good selection on the menu, child friendly. Although it is up a flight of stairs so the less able will find it difficult.
