A group of women celebrated a friend's special birthday here. It was a week-night & not busy. The food was quite good, service pleasant, but I thought it was a bit pricey for a restaurant on an outparcel of a mall. The entrees came with vegetable and potato, but the pasta entrees did not come with a salad. The bread was good & there was complimentary bruschetta. They allowed us to bring in a birthday cake. There are many other good Italian restaurants with better value than this one.

I have always had good food here. Prices are a bit higher that normal, but it's a nice dinner out. Some of the portions seem a bit small for the price, but I have never had a bad meal. The staff seems to want to work hard to make you happy. We had three people trying to level out our table once. It was actually funny.

we love that franco's has appeared on the dining scene here in wellington and think it's one of the best around. We love all the appetizers, the lobster salad at lunch, the pizza is good, and the fish is always totally fresh and good.

First visit was just for an appetizer. The calamari was listed as 'spicy'. Perfectly crispy, the sauce was delicious, but seemed very mild... coz it was straight marinara, lol. Upon request, it transpired that the chef was in the process of making a fra diavolo. Very shortly, a healthy portion arrived, piping hot and just looking at it, you KNEW it was good, lol. And it was - terrific full flavor, and very satisfyingly spicy.

Wines by the glass selection is too limited and uninteresting. Ditto for beers, but those are easy fixes. With two sauces being SO good, means its a talented culinary team.
