They have a three course prix fix menu for $25 a great value and a very good meal. The regular menu prices are mid range and the food is a 10. The staff and service very good. Try the salmon, also thr home made mozzarella (caprese salad) a must. Reservations also a must.

I hadn't heard of this restaurant, even though they've evidently been here in Wellington for 3 years (in front of the Wellington mall across Field of Greens). After I told some friends I was going there, I heard that when they first opened, their chef was not very good, but they said to try it now because they have a... More

The FOOD here is amazing! The place is very busy during season (Sept.-Mar.) so reservations are a MUST! Pricing is a bit higher but worth the flavour experience. It has an ambiance inside & out that gives your Italian dining experience more flair. We sat outside where it was lit with string lites & heaters to take off the chill... More

Had 7PM reservation, came in early and went to the bar since it was happy hour. The owner was annoyed that we did not go directly to the table and told us that he would give the table to someone else and was very nasty about it. After sitting down at the table, we wanted to enjoy our wine and... More

Truly everything is great here, but the veal parmesan has me coming back every time! It's always perfectly cooked and seasoned.

This restaurant is tucked away in a shopping plaza, a busy Friday night and without a reservation we were looking for a place to eat and came across Franco. We were offered a table inside or out and chose the latter as it was a lovely evening. A couple of cocktails started the meal off well. We shared an appetizer... More

I have been to Franco's a number of times. Last night we had a reservation for 2 people at 7:30, re-confirmed the reservation at 6:30, arrived a few minutes early (7:25) and were told they had no tables that it would be over an hour before we could be seated (as a party of 2 not 20). When we decided... More
