The salad was wonderful along with the bread. The pasta was overcooked and the marinara had absolutely no taste.

One of our favorite places was really disappointing. We understand it is under new ownership who may have relied on her papa to rework the menu too much. The food was bitter.( wrong spices?). How do you mess up spaghetti? The wonderful crusty rolls are gone and now they serve a doughy roll -really, with Italian? Noisy now, with loud... More

We ate here while on vacation partially out of convenience. It is located across the street from the condos we stayed at, The Enclave. We are there early one evening before they got very busy. Our waitress was great, but some of the staff did seem to be struggling. I think they just hired some new people. Our pizza was... More

Friday's are always busy but you expect that . It looked like they were understaffed and the waiter that was there for lunch Mike was still working the dinner shift. He was great at lunch. On top of it. Unfortunately the female working the outside tables wasn't near the server or personality as Mike. I was seated for 10 minutes... More

Good food but not great. Wait staff was not engaged, just went through the motions Might consider again...maybe.

We ordered the veggie white pizza to go and I was very disappointed. The crust was soggy and the pizza was almost tastelesss. I have had similar problems a couple of other times. This was it - I'll never order from there again.

Busy Saturday night during Shrimp Festival but the wait wasn't too bad. Waiter was a very busy man, but kept up. Appetizer and pizza were good. Price was fair. There was live music in the bar area.

We have patronized this restaurant many times and have always had great service and food. We waited almost one hour for our salad which never came. Our entrees were served and the waiter said he would get our salads which we declined. The food was lukewarm and very little flavor - not what we expected for a $23 entree. The... More

Tried to order pizza to go from here on more then once occasion. Been quoted 45 minutes each time I tried. As far as wait times for a pizza to go... that is quite ridiculous. Called and spoke to a manager, he informed me that's standard wait time for a carry out pizza order. He also went on to tell... More

We needed a change from seafood, and Franco's was just what we wanted! Excellent food at a good mid-range price. We got there close to closing time (we didn't know that!), but we were welcomed and got great service anyway. The salad and bread are excellent. I recommend the ziti!

Thank Lanita H
