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.

Had an evening meal recently at Franco's and despite the somewhat dated decor we were greeted warmly. The starters were ok although the melon wasn't fully ripe. We then chose the mains from the specials board. The spicy pappardelle was very enjoyable and the sea bass fillets were fine. Then we made the mistake of deciding to have a pud.... More

Had a great family meal. Service was polite although a little slow. We didn't mind as we were in no rush but I could understand how some would find this a problem. Food was spot on. Had a good banter with the waitress. All in all a good night out. Would highly recommend, just don't be in any hurry.

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 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.
