I personally along with my family did not like the sauce. Service was good and friendly. We all had something different too.

Chicken parm was horrible, my wife had the seafood lasagna an she said it was disgusting, the best thing we had about this lunch was her Dr . pepper and my Diet coke, trust me we visit here every other year from new Orleans and this is 1 place we won't b back 2.

Drove here from Gulf Shores on the last night of our vacation. Everyone really enjoyed Franco's Italian classics. Our server Wendy was super nice even when my daughter spilled her chocolate milk. She made the good food a great dining experience.

We ate here on our last night of vacation looking for something differnt than the usual Orange Beach restaurants. Service was excellent and food was delicious. I had Grouper Picatta. We will add it to our list when we go to the beach.

Franco's has a acceptable menu and pretty good service. Everyone's food was decent, excluding my veal. I guess that's karma for choosing veal, but I can say it was the worst I've ever had. I do wish our server didn't reak of cigarettes and that I didn't sit next to a woman drowned in perfume, but those are isolated uncontrollable... More

We "carried-out" to the condo from Franco's. The salad and the bread was awesome. Loved the cheeses on the salad. The pizza can be skipped for another appetizer or meal. The food/entrees were very good. The food was pretty authentic Italian. It even smells like an Italian restaurant when you walk in! The chicken and the fish entrees were excellent.... More

Franco's has many good menu options, including building your own entrée--pasta, meat/fish, sauces. The salad, with fresh mozzarella balls, and the crusty warm bread are true winners. Chicken parmesan is generous and delicious. Meatballs are also very good. Pizza here is just average, so go for a traditional Italian entrée instead. Leave room for dessert---they're very good, as well.

Have been going to Franco's many years, through many different locations. The Italian food is always very good. The seafood (fish especially) is tasty. Lots of items to choose from. Kid friendly, decent wine selection. During high season there is always a wait but go earlier than normal and you won't have to wait long. Would recommend this restaurant. Nice... More

Went with husband who got the chicken Marsala and I got the baked ziti. The ziti was really delicious, however my husband couldn't choke down the Marsala. We split the ziti and our waiter was nice enough to not charge us for the Marsala since it wasn't touched. I would recommend

We just ate at this wonderful restaurant. I have lived all over the country and traveled overseas. This restaurant is a hidden gem near the Wal-Mart in Orange Beach. Make sure your GPS has the correct address. They recently moved to the Wal-Mary location. Look for the striped awning. Our server Michael was amazing. He attended to every need without... More
