Delicious......... our party of 4 were all super satisfied with their choices. Eggplant Parm, Chicken Marsala, The Pepe and lastly my Chicken Gorgonzola. I must apologize, I've eaten here 3 times and have yet to stray from the Chicken Gorgonzola, so other than second hand reports of my fellow diners glee, I can only truthfully report on the Gorgonzola, IT...

We ate there Friday at 6:PM with a group of 15. It was not crowded as there was a bad thunder storm at the time. It was very nice inside and a couple were playing and singing and sounded real good and not too loud. The waiters got our drinks to us very quickly and got our orders. I ordered... More

Great atmosphere, very clean and simple. Wait staff was very nice and wasn't pesty. The Venetian chicken is excellent !,as was the Veal Piccata,... tender and delicious. Nice bar area with tables. The menu has something for everyone, including steaks. The house salad and butter/ garlic rolls are amazing! Gotta go here !

This is a top notch Italian place if you want good Italian food. We arrived and only had a 5 minute wait. We were greeted politely. Our waitress took our order and then answered any questions we had. While we were waiting on our food we noticed the owner running around, getting drinks for people who were waiting, and cleaning... More

The sauce was very good which is how i grade italian. Salad is served family style and it alone is wonderful. Try this place for fine dining or an... More

My husband have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past and last night we thought we went to the wrong place. Service was poor, couldn't get waitress for drink refills, a couple of different people finally came around to see if anyone had taken our food order and someone finally, it seemed, at random took our order and...

Last December, Franco's was top notch. The food and service have slipped greatly in the past year. The eggplant was soggy and not well cooked. The very small dish of spaghetti was covered in a sauce that was little more than cooked tomatoes.

We stopped in for lunch. We received EXCELLENT service, and we loved the food. Excellent house salad, rolls to die for (ordered extra rolls to go)....thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. Pretty decor, very clean, great service and food....couldn't ask for more! Oh, and decent reasonable prices too.

Thank K W
