Went to Franco's with another couple for dinner. This reminded me of being in Italy. The service was wonderful.
My husband had the special which was Sole. He said it was absolutely delicious. two of us had the eggplant parmigiana, also excellent.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because they are very limited with vegetables. Since I do not eat carbs, I requested vegetables instead and was offered only one choice which is not a vegetable that I like. Hopefully they will add more vegetables in the future. Over all, very enjoyable an would absolutely go back.

We went to Franco's a few weeks back on a Monday night and it was busy. Busier than we expected for a week night. The place has a nice ambiance and the service was very good, but the food was just average. I had gnocchi's that were overcooked and my wife had a shrimp pasta dish that was just ok. They have covered outside seating which is nice since it was raining when we were there. It was also a little pricey.

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.
