Sorrento's local favorite pizzeria

The pizzeria was recommended by the guesthouse owner, it's the locals favorite. We have to get in the queue for a while before we can get the table. Nice pizza, but the grilled cheese is superb!

We were recommended to try this place and happy we did. The plastic cutlery made us doubt it at first but were pleasantly surprised .... Who needs cutlery when eating pizza anyways!

Went here after the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We weren't seen to straightaway, but we didn't mind too much as we wanted to get a feel for the place. The waitress wasn't overly enthusiastic when we did get served, but we didn't come expecting top service. The upside was that the food was cheap and freshly made with home ingredients,... More

We found Franco's through the reviews on Tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. The pizza was fantastic, and it was nice to mix with the locals rather than the tourist haunts. The staff were really friendly and there wasn't any pressure to buy desserts or extras (which unfortunately you do sometimes get elsewhere in Sorrento), so will definitely be visiting again.

Small informal restaurant that serves its pizzas on metal trays with plastic knives and forks. Tables are benches where you can be expected to share with strangers. It's more like a fast food restaurant but with the magic of top quality pizzas. Highly recommend.
