Description: A favourite in Tunbridge Wells since the 1990s, Signor Franco Ristorante is a vibrant yet sophisticated Italian restaurant, staging wine tasting and live music sessions. Championing use of the finest possible ingredients, head chef Francesco Furriello sources from a trusted stock of Kent-based suppliers, many of whom receive daily deliveries of produce imported direct from Italy. A bright and airy first floor conservatory dining room leads onto an upstairs terrace, which overlooks the bustle of Tunbridge Wells High Street.

Wonderful meal, although it doesn't necessarily do enough to rise head and shoulders above the other excellent independent Italian restaurants in Tunbridge Wells.

The service is on the fine dining side of things. You may find complements a special night out, or just plain makes you uncomfortable

Four of us came on a Saturday evening for dinner.

Signor Franco's is a little more formal than many restaurants. There seemed to be plenty of waiting staff, and an a room with armchairs and sofas for cocktails before going to the table.

Our table was in the window with views up and down the High Street.

Before our starter arrived we were served an amuse bouche, which was delicious.

The starters were excellent, I had the special, mussels which were fresh and plump.

For my main course I had liver, cooked as requested and with a delicious sauce.

The hazlenut semifreddo was very good too. So good that someone who wanted to try it ate wished they had ordered it.

The wine we ordered was excellent, and the Irish coffee received praise from someone who regularly orders one.

Worth a visit. It will cost a touch more.

I have eaten in this restaurant many many times and had the pleasure of Signor Franco, who was a legend, and I can only give fantastic feedback, the service and food was always the best, so sad to learn that Signor Franco is no longer with us, but I'm sure he's fantastic food and hospitality goes on x

We booked up last minute mid week when the restaurant had about 5-6 covers. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Food was good. We did share a bottle of wine and a couple of other drinks which did bump the price up considerably. Overall, a nice experience, we would go back and would recommend for a special occasion although we did spend a lot more than we expected - but cant blame the restaurant for our over indulging!
