Lovely restaurant with picturesque roof garden in the heart of town. Professional and courteous service and delicious food. We shared a greek salad as a starter and had the lamb and shrimp risotto as mains and enjoyed everything. Good view of the square below.

Well structured plates of high quality and great taste. Really nice and picturesque place. Staff was decent.

A bit hard to find - at the end of the main shopping street (narrow small street) - but worth the walk. Dinner was great and the wine was delicious.

We have been in Paros 2 years ago with my husband and our children. Went in a couple of restaurants there and I can say all of them were above the average. This restaurant really pops in my mind when thinking of Paros. The food was great really recommend to go there and enjoy your holidays.

Franca Scala is everything you want from a great restaurant. A beautiful setting (look at the pictured!). Attentive and informed staff. And modern takes on classic dishes. Go.
