We try to dine here every time I come home, the food is fresh and tasty. The owner often walks around and chats to you. He ensures your visit is an enjoyable one.

We have eaten at Franco's twice. We only found the establishment following a meeting at offices on the Business Park. The staff are very welcoming. The decor is modern & warm. On both occasions we just had a main course, not aware on our first visit that you are given complimentary olives, breads and dips as an appetiser. The menu... More

It was my first visit of Franco's and had heard of great reviews from friends. I have based my 4* score on my overall enjoyment and service. We visited as a party of ten adults. At first glance it's a little bit too packed in rather than an intimate setting. The tables could do with some more decor in the... More

My daughter discovered this restaurant and insisted we visit. She took my wife for lunch on a Saturday and it was fairly busy considering its location. The staff looked after us extremely well and the food was top notch, the best Italian food I've eaten in or out of Italy. The owner, Franco, joined us for coffee and stayed for... More

A welcome awaits you at Francos and the service is smooth and friendly. The food is good too, with a large selection of dishes to choose from. Portions are generous so we were able to order half portions, which doesn't happen everywhere. The emphasis is on pleasing the diner. Complementary bread and olives are served on arrival. An added bonus... More

Went with a client from out of the area. So we needed it to deliver on every level and we were not disappointed. Our client was talking about coming back with his wife. Lovely service. The olives are to die for, but I try to avoid the bread as I need to save room as the portions are generous. We... More
