Always Good Food!

We stop in at Franco's each year and the quality is always the same! My teenage boys ordered shrimp alfredo and loved it. My husband ordered the pizza and said it was the best! I had the crab and shrimp alfredo and was very pleased. Can't wait to go back next year!

We were a little concerned because this place has changed ownership but the quality was still there. We have been going to Franco's for many years so we were very glad the food was still very good. One of us had the chicken parmigiana, another had the lasagna and the children had spaghetti and meat balls. Everyone enjoyed their meals.... More

We happened upon Franco's a few years ago and have come back every time we visited. Franco's is in a strip mall tucked away but has outdoor seating as well as the light up coaster system for waiting for tables. Our small table of 3 was sat in 30 minutes on a Friday night! The food is traditional Italian fare... More

Good food and great service. You will need a doggie bag to take home. Right amount of food for the price you pay. Large selection of food to pick from.

Probably one of the very best Italian Restaurant you will ever eat at. The food is amazing and the service is fantastic. Our server was Bryant and I would highly recommend to request him for your server! The best!!

The Michelangelo platter is delicious. This has the best Alfredo sauce I have ever eaten. Try the seafood lasagna. The salad and rolls are great, too! The new owner/manager came to our table to inquire about our visit.

Read a bunch of great reviews so decided to try. I got the Franco's platter which is like a taste of Italy. Food was average, and the chicken parm was not very good. Also got their 3-layer chocolate cake, again just average. For the $$ spent I expected much better. Olive Garden is much better.

We sat outside with 3 little boys instead of waiting 20 minutes to get a table inside. The service was unbelievable, drink order taken at once, bread brought out with drinks and always keep the drinks filled. Salad was outstanding, had to take my main course to go because I ate to much salad and bread. Enjoyable evening. Would go... More

We have been going to Francos for years...very close to our condo in Orange Beach and really good food. Service is always great. They don't take reservations but we like that you can order takeout and bring it back and eat on your balcony! Their salad and bread is good enough on its own, but we love the Veal Piccata... More

Hadn't been to Franco's in several years so we decided to try it again this trip. Food was still very good. Love the salad and rolls! Venetian chicken, pizza and chicken alfredo were all very good. Nice dinner when you need a break from seafood!
