The food is always hot and fresh and the service is excellent. I enjoyed the lasagna and fried ravioli. Made fresh and so good!

A couple of years ago when we moved to the area, one of the locals told me about Franco’s and highly recommended it. Not living that far from the airport, it didn’t make much since to visit Franco’s. Opportunity presented itself when returning right before lunch time from a business trip. Knowing I’d have to go back to the office... More

I ordered 2 items for take-out. The first was a 14" mushroom pizza. Very sparing amount of toppings and overall, it was salty. The second was the Chicken Valentino. Again, very sparing amount of red peppers and chicken, and I don't think the spinach was fresh. It was a small portion for the price I paid. The staff was friendly,... More

Was in a hurry to get to airport and ordered antipasto. It was very good. Wish I had time to try other items.

Wonderful family-owned restaurant, with reasonable prices, good portions, and delicious food. The chicken marsala is the BEST!!!! Always a must when in Hampton Roads!

Let's start with the good things, the service was good and the food was great with generous quantities of food. The restrooms were not so clean if to be gentle, and the worst thing was that our clothes smelled like if they were fried. So the general experiance is controversyץ

Franco's has a great menu at a reasonable price. The atmosphere has to be experienced. Live piano music and an cozy design. If you get a calzone get a small one unless you are prepared for a challenge.

Horrible customer service. Will never go back. It sucks because they have awesome almond cake. Was going to place a 60 dollar + order and I didn't go thru with it because the person taking it was so rude and judge mental. Dining in isn't much better. Spend your money elsewhere.

Tucked away in a nondescript strip mall at Norview Ave and Military Highway, this little gem HAD AMAZING FOOD! Though crowded and the fact that our table was very wobbly, we all managed to enjoy the great food and service provided by Kristina. The place could stand some corrective maintenance, but don't change the menu!

Ordered takeout large Stromboli with pepperoni and sausage when we got home to eat it there was like 4 pepperonis and 2 sausages in the big Stromboli. Highly disappointed we called to complain and was told next time to order extra meat, told them there will be no next time. Do not eat here they are very cheap and don't... More
