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

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...

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.
