“Finally Got In”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Waited awhile for a table. Had reservations for 8 PM. That's understandable for a small and busy place. Ordered the special which was a pork something on a bed of pasta with spinach and olive oil & garlic. The "pork belly" I was told after it was served was full of FAT FAT & more white FAT. Got sick to my stomach with the thought of all that fat. No meat to be found and it was COLD on the inside. The pizza my husband ordered was a simple request- pepperoni & cheese. It was very undercooked. Please take that Pork thing off the menu Cannot believe you would even consider serving something like that. Not good at all. Maybe we should have ordered a pasta dish. Not going back. It was very nice the waitress took the pork thing off the bill.
Well apprecaited. Just so you know I have no problem paying any amount for a GOOD MEAL.
Service was good. Value was good as long as a meal is good.

“The best Italian food in Williamsport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

My husband and I love to go here for lunch and dinner. The food is always very good, I can't think of a single thing I didn't like! Yes, you usually do need a reservation but I'd rather call ahead and eat somewhere decent than go to the Olive Garden and eat mediocre non authentic Italian food. But if you want the real deal eat here! Try the big house salad it's loaded with very different things! And our favorite waitress Barbie will take good care of you!

this is bar/lounge with a small dining area off the bar area. Very good Italian food and extensive wine list.
One of the best places in Central Pennsylvania

“Fun and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We visit Franco's on a 4-6 week basis as it has unique good foods which make the evening enjoyable. Recommend reservation as it is small and very busy, not very easy for walk in. Staff is friendly, good wine list and service is prompt.
