There are of course, so many Italian restaurants in Hove. Some are quite good but this is the only one that I would say is actually very good. Very good indeed.

Lovely little place, friendly service and excellent food. The shared antipasti platter is highly recommended and the pizza is how you imagine pizza should REALLY taste.

Forget the rest. But book ahead as it is quite a small place.

Hove`s little secret restaurant. Small restaurant on Kingsway a short distance from the seafront. Very small so limited covers. Nice to sit out in the summer. Food is excellent traditional italian. Not by any stretch of the imagination the usual microwave heat up in a box stuff that you can get . Really fresh and perfect food. Definately worth a visit if you are in the area but be aware it gets very booked up so check availability. We were there on sunday and they were constantly turning people away. Just shows how good the place is.

Intimate and friendly, great authentic food and a very enjoyable experience. I love the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant and Franco's is definitely that. We went with friends and family and all had a great time. Very good value and we shall be happy to repeat the experience. Recommend you visit.

The food was incredible, super tasty and you can tell that the ingredients are of a high quality. Good portion sizes, we were stuffed after a main and a dessert.
