This used to be a great little Italian. Unfortunately the front of house has left and the standard has dropped to such an extent that you question whether this restaurant will be here in six months. The food is poor and the quality of customer service is well non existent. I certainly would not return and would not recommend to... More

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.

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.
