I visited for the Second time with my friends, I thought it couldn't get any better than our last visit to Francos. I was wrong. The Lasagne was out of this world. My wife had the chicken escalope and mushroom sauce which was superb. I will be back very soon,thank you for the wonderful service.

We ate here on a very busy Saturday evening so service was a bit slow and it was so noisy- the very loud music didn't help- that it was difficult to carry on a conversation at times. We enjoyed our pasta dishes and puddings, although the antipasti offered only one piece of bread for four people and the wine was... More

Greeted by a drug addict/alchoholic drunk looking manager who was very cold and rude. Throughout the 40 mins meal, he was acting rude and weird when we asked if their merlot is light or dry, whether we can have some parmesan cheese and black pepper on pur pizza. His reaction to all our requests was like "why are you asking... More

Arriving at the restaurant it was very busy (always a good sign) so booking is a must. The food is really reasonably priced and has a good selection on the menu. The service is very good and the staff are very attentive (without being overbearing) which is impressive considering there was not a free table in the restaurant. I started... More

Very busy but service was excellent and food equally good. I couldn't decide which of many dishes I wanted so the lady suggested that I have a smaller portion of several. Excellent idea. Would go back.

If inattentive service, bland food and overpriced wine is your bag then Francos is the place to go. Seemed to wait ages for our order to be taken then the starter of breaded mushrooms stuffed with pate appeared almost immediately which is always a little disconcerting (microwave anyone?) Mains of lasagne - lot of stodgy and no real flavour, and... More

We went on a Friday night without having booked first. A table was found for us but we waited a while for a waiter to notice us to offer a menu and a drink. The food was good, not excellent but good enough. We were surprised at the wine prices, much more expensive than the more upmarket Tontine Hotel in... More

Very average. My partner said his lasagne was nice but I've cooked tastier pasta at home. We only ordered a main dish each with no sides, starters or puddings. Someone came over after we ordered asking when we would like the garlic bread, but as I said none was ordered. Got the impression you weren't allowed to order just a... More
