The restaurant was recommended by our Hotel and I'm pleased to say that my wife and I had a fantastic evening. We were a bit taken back when you walk through the door and down into the small but traditional restaurant. The service was 1st class without being in your face every five minutes, we ordered a starter to share... More

Visited this lunch time, we had been told to book as our friends who had previously been said it was frequently very busy. Today we were the only customers however the service was still attentive without being overpowering. We ordered 4 different dishes which arrived together, well presented and most importantly hot. Thank you for helping to make our lunch... More

Run by a proper Italian family, Francos is a charming warm restaurant with a nice atmosphere. When we arrived, we witnessed people being turned away because they were full, which just goes to show how popular the place is! The room was smaller than I expected, but cosy, traditional and a bit eclectic. We had a meal with our family... More

The only occasion we visited, the coffee was luke warm and the food (various sandwiches) was so greasy that we felt quite queasy for a long while afterwards.

We really enjoyed the food. It was well cooked and super tasty. The atmosphere was definitely lacking. It felt quite dated, and s little cafeteria-y, which is why I've rated it a 3. If the atmosphere was a bit better it would have been a 4. The staff were very friendly and hekpfuk. Overall an enjoyable evening!

Franco's is a delightful experience. The family came originally from Sicily and the atmosphere and food reflect this. Upstairs is a coffee shop, where they also sell home made bread - possibly the best I have tasted - and take away slices of pizza, with really good, strong coffee. Downstairs is the restaurant - delicious pizzas and a variety of... More

I've been here several times and always found the food to be exceptional. The wine is also good and the service brilliant. The only downer I would put on this place is the lack of window seats/tables. It is in a cellar though.

Managing expectation; for me Italian themed restaurants have been family run, lively edging to chaotic or cosy, discreet and romantic, but always good food. This fell somewhere between the two, the upshot being ‘mediocre’. The two front of house staff were very busy and working hard, the chef was in and out of the kitchen. Antipasti – brochettes’ & Franco’s... More
