Everything we ate was very good. Only one not so good. The Fettuccini Alfredo side dish had no taste and was watery. The salad with house Italian dressing was outstanding. Ravioli very good; meatball ok but too spicy for me. Chianti was excellent. Will eat there again now that I'm more familiar with the menu.

Franco's is situated on the end of a decent block of shops in Orange Beach. Interior is nice, with lots of red colours, subdued lighting, both booths and tables, an unobstrusive bar, and a few big screens. It's fine for couples of all ages, families with children, and even small groups. We were greeted promptly by a very friendly lady,... More

My husband and I ate here. I had the special with lasagna. ..fettuccine. ..Chicken parmeson...mine was great. Bread was wonderful. My husband unfortunately ordered a steak with marsala since he loves the one at carrabas but couldn't eat it.

My husband and I had dinner at Franco's with our friends. Our server was quite pleasant and knowledgeable. She took great care of us. I'm generally uncomfortable eating Italian food with my husband because he has very high standards. He is from the St. Louis area, and has had the best Italian on "The Hill." Even he had to admit...

We went for the wine specials with dinner. Disappointed that they did not have live music as advertised. But the food/service was very good. Try the sausage honey roll appetizer...I can't remember the name of it, but it is so good. Dinner was a pleasant surprise & good value.

We had eaten here for over 20 years and read recent reviews which did not favor the restaurant now. After asking a few locals and being told it was still good we called in an order to go. We loved it. I had a seafood dish and my wife had spaghetti and meatballs. We ordered extra meatballs to. The food... More

I went to Franco's my first evening in Orange Beach. It was open and convenient to our hotel. My husband and I both had pasta dinners with salads. The food was wonderful...fresh and perfectly seasoned. The salad was absolutely perfect. Fresh bread accompanied our meal. I do love good Italian food and I was impressed!
