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!

We'd read some of the reviews and Francos had been recommended by some friends so we decided to try it before visiting the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. It was well worth the stop. The food was excellent, the servings were plentiful, the service was pretty speedy given the full house they had, and the glass of chianti well priced and poured.... More

My wife and I stopped in at 5:30 after a long busy day. We were seated immediately and brought our menus. My wife was starving so she started with a house salad (which we shared) and I had a glass of house Chianti (beer and wine only here). I ordered the veal parmesan and my wife decided on the chicken... More

My family and I have been going to Franco's for 25+ years. It is located closed to Norfolk International Airport, a great place to stop before or after a flight. Plenty of parking.
