Excellent pleasant Surprise

Very Quaint! Located in Old Town Scottsdale Well worth the wait or trouble of finding parking. During the season recommend using Valet, off season there is on street parking.

One of the best meals ever, here or in Italy - Franco's is that good! The quality of the food and authenticity of the preparation combine with the warm and gracious atmosphere to create a wonderful experience. The highlights were the homemade pastas, particularly the ravioli, and the phenomenal Tuscan steak. Our daughters enjoyed salmon and lamb, and my husband... More

I'm a local and now a regular at Franco's. Just had dinner last night and ordered Franco's seafood ravaloni special. The best ever authentic Italian food...a must try. Great service and always treated as family.

I always feel as if Franco is welcoming me into his own home, few chefs like him anymore. I highly recommend the veal dishes for light appetites, al the pastas wonderful and when on the menu the osso bucco is divine.

We came to Franco's looking for dessert. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, treated extremely well by Franco himself, and very much enjoyed the food and great service. Franco's is clearly an establishment where the owner and staff take great pride in what they do, a trait that never gets old, and for which there is no substitute. We... More

Franco's is a nice restaurant right in downtown Scottsdale. My wife and I were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and we stumbled upon Franco's. The food is all homemade and tasted pretty good. I would have liked a bit more seasoning in my alfredo but it was still good. My wife and I ordered 3 pasta dishes... More

After an exhausting day of travel we put our meal in the hands of the owner Franco Fazzuoli and asked him to serve us his best. He chose a bottle of Sagrantino di Montefalco which we allowed to breathe for at least 10 minutes and it opened up beautifully. Our meal began with a first course of antipasto: Fresh mozzarella...

They were very attentive and the food was very fresh and delicious. The place is not too big which is why they do take reservations so I would recommend to call ahead. They start with a fresh basket of assorted breads which was delicious and we ended up asking for 2 more, all complimentary of course. The plates are big... More

Both quiet and quaint, Franco's has it all. Great food, great service, while providing that hands on, family owned and operated environment. Franco and his beautiful daughter have always greeted us with smiling faces and open arms. Be sure to make reservations and you'll be delighted with your experience. Valet is offered curbside so be sure to take advantage. Nathan
