We were looking for fine Italian cuisine, good wine and warm ambience, we found it here and more.......salad was crisp, eggplant was tender, pasta was al dente. Our waiter suggested the perfect wine for our meal, always with a smile! We will definitely be back!

I treated my 'friend' to a wonderful dinner at Franco tonight because I was there with a small group a few months ago and absoluteld loved it! They didn't disappoint us. We were seated promptly; wonderful bread was brought to the table and our waitress told about the specials, all of which sounded yummy. We shared a caesar salad which... More
