This is the type of place you go to have the best pizza- don't look at the paper plates, plastic cutlery... It's not about the service or decor- just the best pizza EVER!

Looks like an average diner from outside, but don't be fooled: some of the best pizza you can get is waiting inside. We heard about Pizzeria Franco from our taxi driver and ate there 3 times in 10 days. Very basic tables and seats and the cutlery and "glasses" are all plastic, but the pizza is incredible. The clue is... More

Recommended by another restaurant as the best pizzeria in Sorrento we decided to try it. Slightly put off by the plastic benches and wipe clean tables we bit the billet and went in. The waitress was lovely, I think she was the owners daughter, and the food was very tasty. Parma ham was the best we ate anywhere in Italy!... More

The pizza here is fantastic - among the best I've tried around the world, with an extensive selection. It is also reasonably priced. We ate here three times in a 7 day visit. However, the service was terrible (on all 3 occasions). The wait staff sat at the front and joked around with their friends, totally ignorant to us as... More

The best restaurants are the ones that the locals go to and this is no exception. We were brought to Franco’s by a local - it’s his family’s long standing favourite. A superb little place with cured hams hanging from the ceiling. The pizzas are served on grease proof paper in baking trays and with plastic cutlery and plastic cups... More

I eat a lot of pizza and this is the best I have ever tried. Fresh ingredients, crispy but light base; this is everything I wanted in a pizza. Reasonable prices, unpretentious and casual dining that suited us perfectly. Perfect for a light lunch or dinner, we ate here 4 times throughout the duration of our stay.

We were in Italy for about 10 days, so we had pizza quite a few times, but this was probably the best pizza we had. I am a little biased, being from NYC I prefer a style of pizza that is a little closer to what we have in NY (brick oven pizza that is thin, but not too thin,... More

All the locals tell you this is the "place" for pizza and will queue outside to get a table...very rustic, you get plastic plates, knives and forks and the food comes on a tin tray...but just wait the locals know what they are talking about

It's a quick local pizza place, so don't expect 5 star service. The locals don't use silverware, they don't need plates, so do as they do when you're in their country and don't complain. What's important is that the pizza is classic and very good. If you can, definitely speak italian! As with most parts of Italy, speaking italian gets... More

I must say the pizza was just Ok, but the service was shocking, plastic plates and flimsy plastic cutlery and glasses, my husband asked for 2 glasses for the beer and came with 1, my Ischia salad was terrible, a handful of unwashed shopped up lettuce topped with a few black olives and a sprinkle of tuna for € 5...
