Good food, authentic Italian atmosphere

Lovely venue- very Italian, owners are Italian and lovely. If busy there is a bit of a wait for food but then it is all cooked fresh. Fish was a little too "fishy " for me and a touch expensive but all in all would recommend for a good evening out and they are always very welcoming

Ahead of our visit our friends had mentioned this restaurant had a really good atmosphere and they were not wrong. On arrival we noticed there was a large party celebrating a birthday so wondered if the service would be effected as the restaurant was full. It most definitely wasn't, the staff were friendly and efficient and meals were served timely... More

The staff here are very welcoming and really help when it comes to choosing a dish, I visit Francos regularly and the staff always remember my order and make small gestures that go a long way and make me return every time.

Came here on the recommendation of a few people and was disappointed. The restaurant is located in a basement, long and narrow with tables either side with red and white checked table cloths. It feels cramped - not authentic Italian at all to me, just the English translation of an Italian place. The food was also of that era -... More

I love Francos - it's one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Wiltshire. I'm local, so like to get the odd take away/ visit the restaurant when I can. My family have been ordering take away pizzas from Francos over the phone on weekends for years but that seemed to change this evening! I called to place an order for... More

We like eating in Italian restaurant's but this is the best so far. Plenty of room on the authentic looking table's with their checked tablecloths. Pitchers of wine at reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Will be going again soon.

Absolutely fantastic restaurant tucked away we'd recently come back from Sorrento and were not surprised judging from the decor and ambience that the food in Francos was as good as our best restaurant in Sorrento. Do it, just do it.

Authentic feeling Italian. Had a lovely mill only problem was the amount of raw garlic on the brushetta. So much it burnt my tongue. Steak was excellently cooked.
