Disappointed. Went with friends. Ate outside on a pleasant evening.If not for the conversation with our friends, we would have left the restaurant. The entrees took in excess of 30 minutes to be served. The waiter continually apologized for the delay. As for the food : I had a chicken dish with mushrooms. The chicken breast was thin enough to see through.
The waiter did comp 2 glasses of wine but there were 6 of us.

Nice place, good ambiance, interesting menu, good food.
Very chic and crowded. Very crowded. They honored our reservation on time and service was very good. This would be rated higher if it wasn't so noisy. It is a pit pricey but it is an upscale place.

We were visiting sunny Florida for the weekend and were looking for some good Italian food. We read some reviews about Franco's and decided to give it a try. We are sure glad we did! The food was OUTSTANDING! We sat outside, it was a little breezy that evening but there were heaters all around - so we were more than comfortable. The atmosphere was quaint. We were a group of 5 so we thought we'd get some pastas to share, I am so glad we did. We sampled the Pappardell Amalfi,  Pappardelle Al Porcini and the Risotto Al Frutti Di Mare. Yum!! One of the specials that evening was Sole, which most of us got. And for dessert we had the Tiramisu - WOW!! The best ever!!! We will certainly visit again when we are back in Wellington.

We expected better quality food from a fine dining restaurant. The atmosphere was good, lighting appropriate, and service was good. We believe the kitchen dropped the ball on the food overcooking Seafood and Pasta. The Seafood should not smell.
