If you are in Scottsdale, you must go to Franco's! We were in town with our car club and for this one night we were on our own so my husband and I decided to try Franco's. For starters, this is a beautiful restaurant with about 20 tables and a full bar, there are wonderful pictures displayed on the walls... More

Had reservations at 7 PM and table was waiting. Good table spacing, (diagonal fours instead of rectangular) although no room to stand or sit at bar seemed odd. Professional wait staff who all seemed to pitch in at every table, to keep things flowing. The two of us tried the special antipasto which at $26 appeared to be designed for... More

I loved Franco's years ago when he was on 24th St and Camelback but this went above and beyond that. Absolutely flawless service and food from start to finish. Antipasto salad was literally the best I've ever had. Rack of Lamb and Duck Ravioli were outstanding! The complimentary bread and oil was as wonderful as I remembered too. Franco personally... More

We expected good things after reading the reviews. The restaurant is small and noisy when busy. The service from the wait staff was very good. The young busboys need some more training. Now, as to the food, the large antipasti appetizer was definitely enough for three or four. It was, however, lacking in seasoning. The two pasta dishes also lacked... More

We visit Arizona at least once a year and travel to different cities to experience the culture. We always try different restaurants. This year my wife had read about Franco's and we decided to try it on our last night in Scottsdale. It was the best decision we made! We are both of Italian descent, and being from Boston, we...

We chose to eat here for our final evening in the US following two weeks of touring and eating American food and what a good decision! The food was delicious and the service impeccable. Highly recommended!

Great service, warm inviting atmosphere and excellent quality food, Franco’s Italian Caffe hits home runs for all three. The staff is very friendly, attentive and measured and kept our wine glasses full. The table settings are perfectly placed, just far enough away from each other so that you feel a sense of privacy but close enough so that you still... More

When in town from LA, we always go to Franco's Italian Caffe. Franco's uses the freshest and best ingredients. You can taste the difference immediately. The executive chef and kitchen work magic with the ingredients. The staff is attentive, professional, and fun. We all enjoyed various appetizers such as Italian tuna, prosciutto-wrapped melon, burrata, and portabella mushrooms. The Pasta Erbe... More

Great food, atmosphere and service. Make reservations as you will otherwise not get a seat. We had a large appetizer, several of us had salads, followed by main courses. Do try to plan for dessert as they have a good selection of choices. We valet parked as finding parking can sometimes be a challenge in downtown Scottsdale.
