“A Taste of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We have dined at this restaurant for more than1 0 years and still consider it to be the best Italian food in the UK.

Franco the owner and Saun his chef cater for most culinary needs. Nothing is too much trouble.

The staff are well chosen and are an excellent mix of nationalities which serve to make a very good ambience. We have enjoyed many excellent lunches dinners at Francos and always recommend it to anyone looking for good Italian food.

“expensive meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

went for an italian thought this place was very expensive and wasnt busy we were the only ones in with 3 other people, menu expensive for what we got had chibatta with cheese was more like posh cheese on toast then had steak with pepper sauce which was drowned in sauce and couldnt see the steak which was small anyhow, then had a pasta dish with salmon but didnt get much of this and some of the pasta wasnt cooked was chewy,

food was £50.00 prefer to go to weatherspoons far better pasta and steak dishes wont be going in here again need to sort out the prices and organise the menu and food better, to many waiters standing around doing nothing.

“Little gem of a restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Had a wonderful meal here with 3 friends last night, Warm and welcoming service, huge choice of menu took us ages to decide but no pressure. Food was lovely. The only thing I found a little odd was some of the dishes are not priced on the menu and can work out a little expensive but most are very reasonably priced. Will need to go back several more times to work through such an amazing choice of food.
