Authentic and good price

They have their own salumeria and the pizzas are great. Try to go a little bit early to avoid long queue...good choice

We found out about this restaurant through the Sorrento food tour as it was one of the stops (though in our tour material it is called "Pizzeria da Franco.") We sampled the saltimbocca ("pizza bread sandwich") with mozzarella and prosciutto di parma on the tour, and it was amazing. The pizza crust is thin and crisp, yet chewy. So good.... More

Went to Franco's as its across from our hotel and trip advisor reviews looked good (read a couple of negatives about plastic forks, but its pizza, so you eat it with your hands) We had to wait to get a seat! when we got inside we were sat next to some Italians, so if its good for the locals it...

We walked in and sat right down at 7:10 p.m., ordered our pizza, and were delighted with the skewers that the waitress suggested as an appetizer while waiting. By 8 p.m., there was a line out the door. The food was terrific, service cheery if a little distracted (they are busy and don't hover over you). We spent 48 Euro... More

After passing this place every evening and seeing it packed with both tourists and locals, we decided to drop in during the afternoon when it seemed less busy. Pizza is cooked fresh and tasted delicious.Two decent sized pizzas with drinks for less than 20 euros, we were very impressed. It looks like a family business that is extremely popular of... More

This is the best pizza I have tasted we are so glad our rep recommended this place to us. It doesn't look like much when you go in - just long wooden tables with benches but the food is honestly incredible. I would recommend the calzone - can taste all the fresh ingredients. They also do large pizzas to share.... More
