Decent pizza

Pretty good pizza. Definitely where the locals go. Service could improve but it's not really a full restaurant type of place. The price point is fine...you can find cheaper, but maybe not for the same type of quality. Would go back.

Finally ...the type of pizza I've been hearing Italy is famous for. After a long, long walk down the busy section of Sorrento....looking in many unappealing restaurants I came to the edge of the shopping area, and there was Franco's --looking like an Italian pizzaria should look like. I ordered a small margarita pizza for 6 Euros and it was... More

Franco's is a nice place, with porschutto hanging from the ceiling and relaxed atmosfere. We only tried pizza and it was ok, but nothing special. Prices are very reasonable compared to most places in Sorrento, which is on the pricey side

Recommended by our landlord, Lots of locals, a wide variety of choices of pizza from very traditional to very trendy. The small pizza's are for one person but you need to be hungry given the size. Try it, and you will go back.

Large queues of locals on a daily basis made this one stand out. Managed to get in on a Thurs early evening with the children and glad we gave it a go. Informal atmos, very child-friendly and staff all seemed to speak some English. You sit at benches and are given disposable plastic cutlery and plates - seems odd but... More

No frills, Lovely pizza, very reasonable price not touristy. If you like to eat with locals and have your pizza served in baking tray this is the place for you.

If you have no clue about Pizza being lost in fast food pizza chains you need to order ONE METER OF PIZZA becasue here they only sell by the meter. It is a great genuine Pizza a must try.

This place was always full with people queuing outside. Frequented by the locals. We had a pizza there and really enjoyed it. Eat in or take away. Nothing to dislike.

Our hotel was just down the road from this great pizza place. Very basic interior with shared wooden tables and benches and pizza straight from the tray. But it's superb pizza, with a great choice and nice cold beer as well. Good prices too!
