We have dined at Francos a number of times. Often with friends. Have yet to be disappointed. The service and food is consistently wonderful. Never rushed. I love anything marsala and was very please with my meal. We left room for dessertand were ccertainly glad we did. Of course we will be returning.

My husband went Sept 3014, and raved about the 3 course special. We went together in Oct. My husband loved it, I thought it was overpriced. We returned in November with friends.Two people had the mushroom/pasta dish and did not like it. They asked the waiter for tomato sauce to "mask the taste" of the overly seasoned dish. When that...

This was our first time at Franco's. One of the Best Chix Parm and the purcena pasta had fresh mushrooms not dried. Great value and very good food

Homemade Italian cook to order, great service. The veal on the bone is truly to die for, and the homemade sauce has such a unique flavor. Even though it is only a salad, the house salad has such a splendid mix of greens that I have to order it. Great independent restaurant.

A friend recommended Franco's so my wife and children gave it a try. They have a seating areas outside across from the parking lot and a nice decor inside. When looking at the menu I found the prices higher than expected and started to compare this to our favourite Italian in Miami on Collins Ave, meaning that Franco's was 25/30%... More

I have only been there about 5-6 times but food and service has been great every time. Owner on premises most of the time, if not all of the time. A moderate-pricey place but worth it.

It took twenty minutes for someone to first come over to our table and that was after we pointed out to a passing waiter that no one had come by. The waiter blamed the owner for not clearly assigning our table. It wasn't crowded at all (a Monday night) so it shouldn't have been an issue. That being said the... More

Our family was out to dinner last night at Franco's which is a favorite among the Wellington crowd as is ours. We sat outside on the patio in a lovely night with our 12 and 13 year old along with my mother and husband. As always the service was excellent and bread arrived immediately with our drinks. We ordered 2... More

Franco's was recommended by a friend, who had eaten there numerous times. Five of us arrived at 7 pm, our reserved time, only to be told that the only available tables were outside. Being that it was a pleasant evening, that was ok. We ordered beverages, ice teas and one beer. Normally we would order wine but the bottles were... More
