Went there w/ another couple for dinner. Given it high ratings, we were prepared to be wowwed, but that was not to be. The food was all adequate and the entree portions large. I had a caeser salad that was ok (there were no anchovies assed or offered), and a seafood risotto, which appeared to have been made with a... More

Had a birthday celebration dinner here. Everything about it is superior. We went on a weekday and it was mobbed so make reservations. Food, service all wonderful and not too pricey. Only criticism is the "bar" area too cramped to wait for a table and no parking but valet superior too - quick and easy. Want good food, wine and... More

If I could give this restaurant a higher rating I would. Franco's is as close to dining in a great restaurant in Florence as you will find. Very authentic. A group of twelve of us visited Franco's for the first time last week. The service and the food was beyond expectations. We were served a wonderful starter of high quality... More

While on vacation we decided to try this based on tripadvisor reviews. We called and was able to get a reservation at the last minute. When you walk in it looks as if you went back in time and are in a old Italian restaurant in New Youk city. The place is not very big however they have plenty of... More

We have some very good Italian restaurants in London, and through business and leisure travel I've been able to experience some good Italian restaurants around the world, including Italy. We came across Franco's Italian Caffé in North Scottsdale on a 'Fly Drive' vacation by sheer luck - we didn't know about it from any reviews, including TripAdvisor! We were simply... More

So many places in Scottsdale to go to eat, but Franco's stands out! Very attentive and friendly service. Always a lot of specials to choose from. The veal picante is outstanding! And the desserts are well worth it! Chocolate! We eat here whenever we are in the Phoenix area! Make a reservation because it's a busy place!

happy that I was able to get a reservation on Saturday night. Small bustling place that smelled incredible when you walked in the door. Our server was courteous and prompt on a very busy night. Our dinners were fantastic. Truffle risotto, shrimp with penne and radicchio, veal scallopini and linguine with clams. Everything was outstanding! Highly recommend. If you are... More

4 of us went there on a business dinner. Small but nice place, maybe 20 tables. Started with an assortment of antipasti. Melon wrapped in proscuitto, artichoke hearts, veal, tuna with a light mustard sauce and anchovies. For dinner our table had the Black Truffle risotto which was very rich but good. The Lunguine with clams was great. We ended... More

We took our 6 year old granddaughter here for dinner. She was treated like a princess. The staff including the owner were very attentive and extremely nice. White table cloth on tables. The food was superb. Be sure to make reservations and use valet parking. Give Franco's a very high recommendation.

Old school Italian charm without the Sicilian influence of pop culture Italian fare. This place is the authentic item right down to the seating arrangements, decor and old time "favorite table" customer preferential. There's even folks who visit nightly and take the same table day after day, this place is that good. The food is an experience you'll never forget,... More
