“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I recommend the Mediterranean Pasta. The noodle is homemade and the ingredients fresh. The is a well stocked bar available to accompany your meal.

“Great food...but call for reservations”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Ive traveled all over the US and this is some of my favorite Italian. These folks know how to do it right. Gnocchi is good, so are revioli. But make sure you try the far diavlo sauce...simply delicious. Service is fine, but not special. It's a small place and always crowded so call for reservations. The owner is almost always there and checking on everyone. Try Franco's, you won't be disappointed.

“Good but small”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Service is just alright. I have been in there a few times and each time I had a different server come were good and same were bad. The food however, is very good. I havent had one thing in there that I have not loved. The restaurant itself is tiny with only 10 or so tables along with the bar. Get there early to get a table!

“Like being in Italy..not Olive Garden”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Small narrow and quaint, If you want upscale and new,, go to Olive Garden. But. If you want old-style atmosphere and authentic Italian fare ..this is the place.

Tables were reserved Fri night so we sat at the bar ..However many tables remained empty so I would suggest that if patrons don't honor within.15 minutes the tables should be given away to paying customers .

Bartender was friendly and served us there . She 'wore both hats ' well. We ordered the seafood pizza. WOW !
Price was very ressonsble. Viewed other entres and they were very generous.Small appetites may want to split an .

A definite home run in Italian dining!..

“Perfect Pasta!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Fun neighborhood place! Sit at the long bar and enjoy some of the best pasta in the area. All the entrée are made with fresh ingredients. Service is friendly and fast even when this place is packed.
