After a very disappointing visit a while back, resulting in a poor review, the visit to Francos yesterday (18th October) was a pleasure. Service was first class, food excellent and the atmosphere was lively. Thanks Francos, see you soon!

This was the first visit for us to Devizes. Naturally, we searched TripAdvisor for a good restaurant. We had a quick lunch here and it was good. Pasta was al dente, with a tasty sauce Service OK

We visited on a Wednesday as a group of people. The place is tucked away and easily missed if your following navigation instructions on Google. The food was good, nothing out of the ordinary. Would recommend going for the spicy pizza or pasta as they were chilliest I've had. Service was quick and efficient. May again if passing through.

We've always enjoyed simple, reasonably priced, well cooked traditional Italian dishes at Franco's accompanied by excellent service. If you are after great traditional pizza, fresh pasta dishes and some great seafood and vegetarian choices then Franco's will hit the spot. Both our pasta dishes on this visit were perfectly seasoned, full of flavour and exactly what we hoped for. Uncluttered... More

Francos is a staple in Devizes. It holds a string position as the only family run Italian restaurant and is a standard night out for many, us included. But what a disaster. Having booked and arrived on time we were asked to wait in the entry area for our table to clear. Not unusual and no problem. From this vantage... More

We were a party of 6 on a business trip, bit of a wait but the staff were really friendly and the restaurant absolutely packed with a great atmosphere! We had spaghetti, pizzas, chicken, fish - all the food was amazing - would definitely go again !

We have had lots of great meals here and atmosphere is generally good too. Last meal though we had steak which was fab but came with a very small amount of veg-2 small slices of potatoe and a small amount of cauliflower so no colour. We were actually still hungry afterwards and don't have big appetites anyway! We will go... More

A welcome change from the standard chain Italian restaurants. Good food in a restaurant with a 'homely' decor and reasonable prices. We had a bit of a wait for food but it was worth waiting for.
