“Cheap but not cheerful”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Went yesterday on a family visit. Service was poor. Food was bland. Garlic Mushrooms very oily. Pasta dish needed parmesan cheese to give some kind of taste. The price reflects the quality.

“Nice place, good value, great food”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

I went to Franco's with my family yesterday at lunch, there were a few people in but not too busy. We all ordered off the fixed menu, 2 courses less than £10. We had pizza's pasta's and starters all great. My 2 year old son was there too, the waiter was very good at trying to keep him entertained. A good all rounder.

“I love coming here”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

My husband & I went here last night, and as usual it was excellent, the staff are so friendly and attentive,and the food is excellent. It always has a really nice vibe about the place and is really relaxing. Well priced food and wine and they even saved the cap off the botle so I could take it home!!

“This is what I call an Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

Despite the long wait to be seated, I will not hesitate one second before returning to Franco's! Real calzone with an egg inside ( my request!! ) great wine! Great set up and excellent service! And all of this at a very decent price!
Will be back!!
Thank you!
Ps: you were hard to find on Tripadvisor! You should ask to be moved to Longridge instead of Preston!!
