We stopped by for lunch and were seated at a table in the dark dining area. There weren't many people there, but it was easy to hear the conversation coming from the table next to us. Our waitress came quickly with the menus and water, and we were able to order our lunch. The bread was... read more

It appears that Franco's is a victim of their own success. It is often busy with a waiting line to get seated. I am not so sure why any longer. Early on, we raved about the food and the value as we appreciated a good Italian restaurant and expected to pay for it. Now it is average at best, with... More

It is rare these days to find a restaurant that is not a chain and yet offers consistently good food and service but Franco's does just that. The restaurant is contemporary in design, offers a small outdoor dining area, and a small but cozy bar area. The staff is well-trained and the service is normally very good. The wine list... More

It is too bad I cannot give a review below terrible. Yesterday evening, my wife and I decided to go out for a nice dinner. We opted for Franco's because we have been there once before and had a positive experience. We arrived later in the evening and were immediately seated. At the time, there were only other other parties... More

Having been to Franco's several times in past years, I have noticed a decline in the food. I ordered the veal marsala which was salty and that's all that was on the plate. A basket of cold bread was on the table. No sides or salad were included. They used to include a side of pasta, potato or polenta but... More

Franco's aspires to be a better than average Italian trattoria but doesn't quite succeed. Lights were so subdued it was difficult to read the menu. The first two bottles of wine we tried to order were unavailable; the third choice we ordered was overpriced (each wine offering was higher priced than the previous). The veal dishes were well prepared and... More

My husband and I had Valentine's day dinner at Franco's. The food was sooo delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere was cozy and romantic. The staff accommodating. It's pricey but worth every dollar. I highly recommend Franco's.

You might miss this restaurant since it is at the end of a small strip mall on a busy road. Inside it is dark and dreary. I ordered the gnocchi with marinara sauce. It was salty and had little flavor. There was also some Pena pasta thrown in. It seems like the chef was not paying attention. I have eaten... More
