“Italian food like your mother makes”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

It does not look like much from the outside and is very easy to miss, but this restaurant really surprises you inside. With only a few seats at the bar (typically for a drink while you wait) we expected a wait but as it was late a table was open. Service is prompt and pleasant. The menu has all the favorites you would expect and while we did not have a pizza they looked and smelled fabulous ( the table next to us had a sausage and onion pizza that looked perfectly done)!

Our food was perfectly done and we can't wait to go back on our next trip to FLL. One caveat, servers are constantly circulating and clearing your table, even if others in your party are not finished. This becomes a drag after a while so just tell them to leave you alone and wait until you ask for them to do so.

Reviewed December 7, 2012

I use to go to franco's pizza in the 70"s it's almost as good I like alot of sauce and cheese and if you want thin pizza like from new jersey it is close.. anthony's fire coaled pizza is better though..

“Awesome Food!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

While in Fort Lauderdale last summer, my family and I got a craving for some Italian food. Whenever we are on vacation or on a trip away from home, we always like to eat at local establishments and usually shy away from chains, after all, you can eat at those places anywhere, right? That philosophy is what attracted us to Franco and Vinny's. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and, although we stopped for a moment outside the door, we have learned over the years to not judge a book by its cover. Everything we ate was excellent and the service was great. Give this restaurant a try when you're in town. I am confident you will agree.
