This is a cozy little place that the owners make you feel like family. They always have delicious specials and Marcio's soups are always very good. He doesn't make it often but try the steak and pickle pizza, you will be surprised. He can make anything you want but one of my favorites is the veal francaise.

I lost the count of how many times I went to Franco's! They have a great menu with delicious options and it's not expensive. Try the "Marcio Calzone" my favorite!

Was looking to try someplace different for a late lunch, so we went to Franco's. The salad choices were surprising and they were well prepared. Definitely worth the price. Pizza was good too. Service was friendly and prompt. I'll be back.

Babysat for my grandson and my son told me to order and get the food delivered. We had a pizza with mushrooms and Ravioli Bolognese. The pizza was done just how I like it and the ravioli was delicious. The food took about 45 minutes to come and was worth the wait. I would definitely recommend ordering from here. On... More

I have lived in Newtown for almost 15 years and I have been enjoying Franco's ever since I can remember. Whether its for a quick slice, taking out a pie, sitting in or getting delivery, Franco's always knocks it out of the park. Excellent pizza, great + friendly staff, and always a quick delivery. If you're on that side of... More

Lots of places serving pizza, most of them are little better than frozen pizza, Franco's is one of the best in Newtown

You want good Italian food at a fair price? Visit Franco's and try their specialty pizza's. I also enjoyed their Eggplant Parmesan, reminded me of Italian food I used to enjoy in Staten Island on Sunday afternoon at the house of my friend Rocco!

Nice thin crust NY style pizza served nice and hot. Sodas can be taken out of the unit in the back as a self-serve. Only drawback is that it is small and when the weather is cold, any tables near the front (only have maybe 5) get blasts of cold air everytime someone comes in so if going sit towards... More

Not much to say here. Not my favorite place. It's so close to our home yet I travel right past it to go elsewhere. It's a shame. They are not terrible. In fact, I haven't had a full meal there in a while. I am basing my rating mostly on their pizza. Pizza. Such a simple concept. Dough, Sauce &... More
