“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Me and my two best friends go to Carlisle frequently as we like going for shopping there, there's a lot of Italian restaurants however Francos is defiantly the best. The food is excellent we would all highly recommend the garlic bread and the pizza's are heavenly! I have no bad words against the restaurant I couldn't rate it high enough and this is defiantly our favourite place to go out for meals and the fantastic value for money it certainly an added bonus! Francos all the way!

“Great pizza, excellent host”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I have four young children so going out for a meal can sometimes be a bit of an ordeal! However, pizza is their favourite food and Francos came recommended. I must say thank you to the lady (Carole?) who was our hostess who was just great with the kids and took the time to talk to us and make us all feel very welcome. We'll definitely come again.

“Smoking hot food, smoking hot waiter.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The food this afternoon, was divine. We ordered a variety of small dishes, I felt like a kid in a sweet shop, each dish was better than the other. The young english waiter was extremely polite and friendly, and let's just say i'd like to serve him some food sometime too. I would definately visit this beautiful Tudor building again, with period features and huge beams, with handpainted murials of Venice all over the walls, tasteful and beautiful. See you soon Franco's

“Good value Sunday lunch”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We found Franco's while on a day trip to Carlisle. The prices were very reasonable considering it was Sunday lunchtime. We had garlic bread to start and then the lasagne and pizza margherita. The lasagne and pizza were very good and reasonably sized portions. The garlic bread was nice but had a bit too much butter on it. We also had a 1/2 litre carafe of house red which was better than most house wines we've had. The staff were very friendly and the service fairly quick despite it being very busy. We would eat here again.
