Lovely food and a really good atmosphere about the place. Very good food, service and a welcoming feel to the place. We've very much enjoyed both visits and will visit again. I have no hesitation in recommending this gem of a little restaurant.

We had a girly trip to Franco's in celebration of a recent engagement and it was as wonderful as ever. We had yummy starters - the salmon and avocado was particularly good. We then all had pasta, pizzas and ice cream which were also great. The service was very friendly the waiter went out of his way to help make... More

Had a lovely lunch served by pleasant helpful staff and it was delicious and very fresh. Very clean, the price was very good too, for the quality food we all had.

Had dinner with friends at Franco's this evening - which happened to be its 25th anniversary. Our first time. Friendly staff, good food you can rely on, lovely wines, fair prices: what more can one ask for? This is a family, unpretentious place that deserves your custom. We will be back!

I have a warm place in my heart for this underground restauarant. Staff are nice. Food is ok ,nothing too exciting but does what it says on the tin. Never had a bad meal there. Wont burn a hole in your pocket and standard Italian fare. Ive been a number of times and would go again.

Having been disappointed with most Italian restaurants locally, I was recommended to Franco's by an Italian friend. I am a convert, it will become my local. Real Italian food,Well priced and amazing service (even tho they had a party of 20 in at the same time as us) try it!!

I love Franco's; I have been many times now, usually for special occasions. My parents come with my partner and I when they are visiting, and so we decided to go last Friday evening as they were with us in Devizes. Franco's is a little restaurant - probably only about 8 tables, and they are always full whenever I've visited.... More

Lovely Italian - hidden away in the back streets in Devizes. What I love about this place is its family own and not a chain restaurant. The food is freshly cooked to order with a great menu. The decor - whilst it's very traditional Italian looking I feel it could do with a refresh, however this doesn't take anything away... More

Went with to this traditional Italian restaurant my partner and another couple for dinner, the service was attentive but not overbearing, the house wine that was recommended was really good and the pizza was amazing. The other half had fillet steak slow cooked in red wine, mushrooms and pepper that was equally delicious. Would definitely go again.

Lovely, tiny, restaurant hidden in the basement! It's so Italian you'd think you were in Como. Fantastic menu from pizza, pasta, seafood, cured meats, olives (of course) all prepared, cooked and served by the familia. They really are lovely - worth a visit
