“Good food, but not for the romantics...”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

First time at Franco's for a while and the food remained as good as ever - plentiful portions served quickly and efficiently despite it being a busy Saturday night.

That would be the only downside - that the visit was on a Saturday night. Given how popular the place is, it was a very noisy in the restaurant so wouldn't recommend a Saturday as the time to go if you are after a romantic meal for two. Make it during the week if that's the case when its not quite as busy.

Drinks are expensive, which you'd expect in a restaurant, but there was a pleasant surprise when the bill arrived at how cheap it had been.

“Ordinary => excellent”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Franco's just get it. The food is excellent, the wine is excellent, and the service is excellent. The decor, the cutlery, the furniture and the condiments are ordinary. Why is this important? Because Franco doesn't waste your money on things that don't matter, but he delivers where it does matter. The result? The overall dining experience is excellent. The prices are ordinary. Grazie Franco!!
