This is a gem. A beautiful first floor veranda with impeccable cuisine. Very polite service and a decor that exudes quality. Great starters with a star dish-the chick peas, slow cooked in a pot made of earth. The entrees well cooked too and well presented. Desserts delicious.In fact,I could recommend only one thing: Reduce the quantities. Here, the "less is... More

For dinner it is a great place away from the beach and a lovely outside. Food is nice and good but not the most amazing I ever had. They put a lot of effort in the menu and if you stay in the city I would definitely recommend it.

Me and my family had a very nice evening at the Franca Scala. The location of the restaurant was very nice but hard to find if you didn't know where you were. The dinner was one of the best ones I've had on the beautiful island of Paros. But if you want to eat at this restaurant in the summer... More

restaurant located in a nice place in the middle of paroikia town. The staff has been very nice and welcoming. we ate a starter and a main dish, one dessert with a bottle of the local wine (delicious!!). The food was very tasty and the price a bit high but honest overall (90 euro in two people )

Recommended and reviewed by many as good, but in fact just average and for the quality of food and drinks overpriced, had linguine which were just badly done, beside the sitting on the terrace overlooking the street there is nothing special regarding this place, would not recommend it at all

Look up so as not to miss this 2nd floor place. The location is wrongly marked on Google maps. Italian not Greek cuisine. A little crowded on the Terrance and the service was indifferent. The food however was very good.

We went to eat at Franca Scala the last night of our stay at Paros. The price was quite high compared to many of the other restaurants in Parikia but it was all worth it. The waiters almost lurked out the window to make sure they'd bring us our next course/ dish as soon as we had finished the other.... More
