We ate at this restaurant twice for dinner during our 5 night stay. Service was friendly and speedy. Food was delicious and portions generous. Dinner came with a salad which is a big plus in my books since veggies on the road can sometimes be hard to find. Would definitely eat here regularly if I lived in the area. Yum!

We love coming here. The home made pasta is outstanding, as are most of the other dishes. Excellent friendly staff really treats you right. Love getting answers like, the kitçhen is open as long as you're here, instead of kitchens closing soon, order quick. We've gone back and brought friends, and everyone always loves it.

our resort was right down the street and after a long drive really wanted some great food. Saw this place on our way and thought we would walk down and try it. We were created promptly and our server came right over and got us started with drinks. Just had ice teas as we weren't long for a nice bed... More

The bartender at the Sonesta recommended Franco and Vinny's. We had not heard anything about the restaurant so decided to give it a try. Very happy we did. Nice young man was our server, very nice and helpful. The rolls that came with a very nice salad was a good start. We also had the garlic bread. Yummy. All 3... More

This is an old school staple Italian restaurant in FLL. We have eaten here many times. The restaurant is a come as you are establishment and be comfortable...cloth napkins and padded chairs. The food is excellent and generous on the plate. This reminds me of Luigi's in Schenectady, NY where I once cooked as a young man in high school... More

This place is a flashback to 1975. Upon walking in you are greeted by a stone face women that doesn't make you feel welcome at all! She didn't crack a smile the whole time we were there. Our waiter was also unpleasant and rushed..we were a party of two his attention was for a very older demographic that was ordering... More

After reading the reviews here - and a recommendation from a local - I decided to try this restaurant out. Maybe they were having a bad night, but I was not impressed. I sat in the bar near the kitchen so I had a chance to watch food being prepared. The wine selection is surprisingly poor for an Italian restaurant... More

My friends who live her like the veal and eggplant dishes. This time I had the pizza and a salad. Playful staff . Locals like this spot too.

Great family type restaurant with parking in rear. It's nothing fancy but you can expect a hearty, delicious meal. I shared a very tasty salad and had the special.... Fruitte de Mar with a lobster tail, calamari, shrimp, clams over pasta. We all shared a tartufo for dessert. I was pleasantly surprised by my $7 glass of wine - Cabernet... More
