Family run, frequented by locals, with wonderful authentic flavours from the pugliese region of southern Italy. We ate seafood. Decor harks back to the kind of 1970s neighbourhood trattoria you see less and less. Recommended!

Ad always, another business lunch at Franco’s. Table fo four, good food, kind waitress, nice price... Why asking for more? BTW: even if small, the place is quiet, hence great for a conversation...

I was walking in the area and I started smelling good stuff from this little, no-frills, no-fancy spot. Stepped in and there is a wood oven where they do everything: meat, fish and also pizza. Try the apulian specialty "purè di fave con cicoria": die...More
