Reviewed May 28, 2014

Franco's is an old-fashioned restaurant-bar, with some of the best Italian food in the area. There is not a ton of seating, so make a reservation if you can.

“Francos”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Nice little bar, the owners and staff are great, make you feel at home.
Food is very good and my daughter said the mozzerella sticks are the best in the area.
Would highly recommend a stop here on your visits to downtown Williamsport.

“great place”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had a great experience from the atmosphere to the beer selection down to the food. The service was great, the owner was walking around talking to us and other patrons. The woman chef was talking to us about the food, it was a very nice experience.

“A local reviews this restaurant”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This review is being posted by a long-time resident of the Williamsport, PA, area, who is familiar with many of the restaurants in the area. Franco's is one of our two or three favorites. It is small, with a nice bar. Maybe 10 tables near the bar and another 3 or 4 toward the back. 6 (?) of the tables near the bar are booths with 3 or 4 regular tables toward the front. It's a very nice local environment. But it can be hard to get a table, especially on Fridays when it is a popular after-work bar for professionals in the downtown area. (They do take reservations for dinner, but if you want a Friday, call at least a day in advance.) Very pleasant atmosphere. Excellent food at a reasonable price. Great for a good lunch, too. A very nice dinner menu. Their pizza is top flight. We love their "fried" pickles... highly recommended as an appetizer. I would put their food right up there with a couple of the more formal (and pricier) restaurants in the downtown area. (FYI, our other favorite restaurants in the downtown area are the Old Corner and DiSalvo's. For a high-end dinner, consider also 33 East & The Herdic House.)

“Best Italian in Billtown”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Small and cozy, friendly and attentive staff, wonderful Italian food--best calamari around. I love the "tips and torts", and the white clam sauce is memorable. A must place to eat, but definitely make reservations. Solos can eat at the bar and always find fun and interesting people with whom to chat.
