Excellent Veal parm. My wife had eggplant parm, and my daughter had the combination (genaro?). We all enjoyed our meals. Much better than Olive Garden. The salad and the bread were fresh and very good. The wait staff were very attentive, and displayed a great attitude. I will go there again.

Food & service were excellent. I had the Italian dinner. A sampler of just about everything. Food was hot, delicious, and a lot!

The restaurant is a comfortable place for families. Not a white table cloth kind of place. The food is great. I had shrimp scampi and my husband had veal marsala. We had bruschetta as an appetizer that we really liked. Try the house dressing; an oil and vinegar with some spice. We even had tiramisu for dessert. Nice wine list... More

It was just ok...did not like the bread or the veal Parm(in fact it was bad) I did like the fried artichokes. To me it was a waste.. Olive Garden would have been better

Cool that the owner still has time to visit and chat with the patrons. One of only a few places you can still get veal Parmesan! The meat sauce for the pasta is exquisite – make sure you get the house dressing for the salad. You may leave with a bottle of dressing like we do several times

The food was ok, the service was ok, and the prices were ok. nothing to brag about, but also nothing to complain about. Maybe I just wasn't in the Italian mood that night.

We manage to get back to Pensacola every year or so and when we do...we usually spend one evening back at Franco's. However, it has been a couple of years since we made it back to the restaurant. This time we did manage it. The one main disappointment was that they no longer serve my favorite dish....the Cannelloni. Needless to... More

I probably eat at Franco's on an average of once or twice a month throughout the year and to be honest I'm very surprised to read some of the negative comments. I must say I have never experienced any problems of the kind I have read about in some of the reviews. The service has always been excellent, always! They... More

My favorite Italian place in Pensacola now. I love the variety of dishes. There was so many to choose from. I had the spaghetti gamberetti (sp?) and I thorough enjoyed it.
