the meet and greet is always good, the staff are fantastic even when busy, menu is fantastic with a great range to chose from, and the daily specials are well worth a taste, will be a regular, prices are good as well, the best Italian in the area by far

I went with a few of my friends for my birthday, and we were all extremely impressed with the quality of both food and service. I had a margherita pizza and can say it was the best I have tasted around these parts. I also have found the king prawns franco to die for!

Been to Francos quite a few times, mostly for special occasions, 50th, 21st, anniversaries etc. Never had a bad meal, always fab and ive tried most of the menu. Michael the head waiter is attentive and nothings any trouble. Recently open for sunday lunches as well, so tried them too -and wasnt dissapointed. Definitely recommend

... and that was about 20 years ago, maybe more. One of the other reviewers said that she'd never had a poor meal here and I agree. We often eat here early evening if I can't be bothered cooking. We went to Naples once to see what a 'proper' pizza Napoli was like. It was nowhere near as good as the one at Franco's. This is that rare thing; an unassuming, modestly priced restaurant serving top-class food, where the locals eat and which would not be out of place in a small town in Italy. .We generally leave Franco's convinced that it is the best restaurant in the world.
