Visited recently for a catch up with a friend. Welcomed by two lovely Italian ladies. We were seen to by them all evening and made to feel very welcome. Food is very authentic and tastes wonderful. Atmosphere was great, everyone was clearly enjoying their time at Franco's. Highly recommend a visit.

A busy Saturday night with a function upstairs and a full restaurant, Probably because of the function upstairs the service was a little bit slow but that didn't take anything away from the standard of the food. Four of us, each with a different starter and main dishes and every dish was excellent. House wine was also very acceptable.

quite often I pop in for coffee and cake after shopping. The staff are always friendly and polite. I believe that the cakes are made on site, fresh bread is also available to take away. This cafe make a pleasant change from the franchised outlets!

The food here was overpriced and very average. For the starter I had some £7 breaded mushrooms. You would expect them to be very good for this price, however I found that they were obviously just from frozen and tasted no better than the ones you can get from the frozen isle of your local supermarket. Definitely tasted better from... More

As you descend down the stairs to this basement restaurant you are transported to somewhere in Italy.

Found this lovely little Italian restaurant in Devizes, tucked away in Old Swan Yard, lovely atmosphere, gorgeous food and a very friendly Anna Maria. So much to choose from on menu, would definitely return.

We have been dining at this restaurant on and off for the last 15 years, always good value and stays true to character of an authentic old style Italian restaurant. Service is brisk and food quality of the highest standard.
