We went here based on the good rating by other TA users. Great bread and salad and the place is cute. Ordered the Franco platter which includes Fettucine, lasagna and chicken parm. The fettucine had to have been made from a mix. The chicken tasted reheated. The lasagna was actually pretty good. The server acted like he would rather not... More

This was recommended to us by hotel staff. It's within walking distance of Fairfield Inn where we stayed. Very friendly welcome, and excellent service, with attractive, tasteful atmosphere. We split the seafood lasagna entree, which was quite large. The delicious salad was one of the best we've ever had anywhere, and we each enjoyed 2 large servings with some left... More

Went here for lunch on a weekday after Labor Day, ordered the lasagna lunch portion. The restaurant was not very busy. The bread and salad came out fast, and both were good. It was a long wait for the lasagna, the waiter apologized for the delay, noting there was a problem with orders in the kitchen. When the dish came... More

This is my parents favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The Lasagna and cheese manicotti was great. Enjoying bringing them back to the Gulf Shores area and taking them to their favoritate places. Franco's was at the top of the list.

I placed a large take-out order of eggplant parmesan,salad for 24 and 3 dozen rolls. I spoke with the catering employee at least twice to confirm price,date and time of pick-up. When I arrived I was told a tip was to be added($19.86) to my total of $218.46. Because the food was needed within the hour for my birthday celebration,... More

Delicious lasagna!! Very friendly staff. We went during "off" season so we only had a 10 min wait. I would recommend calling ahead or making reservations though.

My husband had a breaded baked shrimp thing, my daughter the spaghetti, and I had salad and some bruschetta. The bruschetta was not good at all, and the marinara sauce wasn't very good either. We all enjoyed the salad. Our waiter personally wasn't friendly, but other staff members were nice. There weren't other choices of Italian restaurants nearby unfortunately.

We went to Franco's the first night in OB because it was across the street from our condo. I ordered the seafood platter which was decent but not great. The salad was the best salad I have ever had and in fact we went back two days later primarily for the salad. I wish I would have bought a bottle... More

We picked up a couple of pizzas and a salad since it was close to our condo. The salad was good. We got a thick and a thin crust. I would recommend the thin crust. The pizza was fine. Not the best I've ever had but not bad.
