Excellent Food . Owner and Staff are all Italian some meals are quite expensive but as the saying goes you pay for what you get. We took our 4 year old granddaughter who absolutely loved the spaghetti bolognese and wants to return.

This is definitely an after work place with the diners almost exclusively people from the office park it's located on (at least in the early evening when I was there). The waiting staff are good and the food is excellent.

Love Franco's. Once you get past the slightly industrial location you know the food is consistently good, it's always busy, the atmosphere is friendly and the staff are great.
