Our party of seven really enjoyed ourselves at Franco’s. Excellent service and delicious food
This local Italian eatery serves standard fare. It's expensive for what is offered. A too large round table for 6 made conversation difficult in a noisy dining room. Consensus at our table was average food. The service however was excellent and attentive.
The food was excellent. The place was lively but you were still able to carry on a conversation.
Must be a new chef , as we have been bragging about Franco for a while and bringing new people here constantly and well that ended last night! The food took longer than usual and was as a result very dry and tough both my wife's chicken and my veal parm.... my friends seafood linguine was also very mediocre, whom is (was) also a frequent diner. The waiter did offer to replace the entrees however, we are not much on returning food and didn't want to dine alone. He then just offered to comp the coffee (wow). It may have been more appropriate to have management visit the table? Very disappointed....
Service was fine but the food was just OK, not hot and the linguini in white clam sauce was nothing special, especially for the cost. We've been here before and the food quality has been inconsistent. Sometimes very good, other times just OK.
Food and service were excellent however portion was rather small for the price.
The food is always very good. I recommend the sole francese. It'always delicious. My friends and I came for this meal. The veal is very good also. The ambiance is nice.
this was not our first time, my first time was about 6 months ago,,was visiting my sister who had newly moved to the area, it was probably 930 and most places were closing ,,we went on our phones and started looking franco popped up and we decided to give it a try,,,wow as new yorkers who grew up on italian food we LOVED it . every time i have been back to visit we make a stop ..this last trip i brought a childhood friend who lives in the area she said I'm a real italian this better be good. Well she started speaking italian with the staff and from that point on she agreed with me ..great food , great people.. thank you franco's for a great meal and great night
They just need their help for the season
We’ve been going here for years. Good food and ambiance. However, they just started asking now when you order cocktails, if you want a “Double”, not the sign of a upscale eatery. I hope they stop that nonsense, everyone knows it’s a money maker. Just pour a healthy sized drink as they always have and stop the Double Talk!
Great service and menu. Meal was excellent.
Bar service was excellent too.
The food was delicious and expertly prepared. The restaurant is beautiful. They have lots of servers but on our visit they stood around talking after the obligatory “how is your dinner?” The music in this beautiful restaurant misses the mark. Playing a pandora station WITH commercials..Kelly clarkson, Whitney Houston? How does that create ambiance in an Italian-Bistro with $30+ entrees?
The food and service were outstanding but so was the noise level.
Excellent food and service. Italian through and through. Pleasant outdoor seating.
Good food friendly staff. We weren’t disappointed.
Food & Service always good like the chicken & eggplant parm pork chop also very good pleasant Italian restaurant which we always enjoy
Good menu selections and value on Summer menu. Attentive service with nicely prepared dishes. Noisy venue, especially with full house.
One of my favorite places to eat in Wellington. A vast offering of great Italian food.
Although the food is great the staff is even better. They have a fun personality about them.
The summer special is an excellent value. The food is delicious.
Had chicken franchise and chicken was so hard to cut it should be soft. Wouldn't order again
$20 summer special s great - ends 10/15. Do not miss!
This place is hit or miss. I’ve had very good meals and not so good. Last meal was extremely salty, as was my wife’s meal. Either the chef was not very good or they were covering up tasteless meat. Nice size pour of glass of wine. But the poor entrees made this experience one I do not want to repeat.
Delicious food, great service, and a menu that makes me want to come again so I can try the other items on the menu!
Great dining experience. Food delicious, waiters presented everything beautifully. Have been there many times and will go back again.
Food was excellent and service was great,
Great night out
had a summer menu for $20 food pasta was drowned in sauce
SUMMER MENU IS TERRIFIC. HUSBAND HAD THE CHICKEN ESCAROLE SOUP AND LOVED IT. SOLE WAS DELICIOUS. HAD A GREAT TIME.
I feel a nice connection when I dine there with Italy. The owner comes from Naples Italy where my family is from. A wonderful restaurant to relax and enjoy a great meal.
We enjoyed the Summer Special menu— A good value& nice selection. The portions are very generous. Nice to have complimentary Bruschetta when we sat down. The bread is delicious & more was brought over when we requested it. We ate outside on a pleasant evening. There were fans & it was quieter than inside the restaurant which was very busy & is exceptionally noisy.
This is our 3 rd time and going back again
We enjoyed the ambiance and the menu we is varied and everything is prepared esthedically
pleasing and flavorful.
We took a couple who had never been to Franco's and whose children (adult) live in the area and always go out to eat. So there is opportunity for more business. I do not eat peas or potatoes (on Weight Watchers) and when I told the person who brought the dish he took it back and waiter came back and said, "no substitutions" but for the charge I can have a salad. OK. He take s a bread plate puts some greens on it and I found out later that he charged $8.00 the full price for a regular salad. I called management and I am waiting for a return phone call. Iffy if we will go again.
I have been to Franco's numerous times and never been disappointed. The food is excellent; the presentation is beautiful and we have gone back numerous times. My favorite dish is the veal chop with tomatoes. Yummy.
We always love Franco's and bring friends whenever they want a delicious Italian dinner with excellent service. Never had a problem. Always wonderful and the food is consistently delicious!
Love this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service is great. The owner and his wife make sure every customer is take care of. Can’t beat the summer specials.
Great good and sizable portions! Summer specials that are more than worthwhile!!Service was great!
Excellent food and service. Never disappointed in any dish we've ordered!
Food is always wonderful & the Summer Menu deal at $20 is great,
However, "short" martinis at $14 is out of whack with reality.
We always try to sit outside where its quieter & easier to relax.
We went to Franco's for their summer menu. It was a wonderful meal for $20 a person. First, we had a lovely glass of wine with their house brushetta. Next we had a delicious Caesar salad which was part of the special. My husband had a moist and flavorful pork chop with a side of spaghetti with a mushroom sauce. I had a chicken dish with eggplant, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. Everything was very good. As an extra we ordered a dessert which was good also. Our only complaint was that we were finished in under an hour and the waiter did not change our silverware after the salad course. We would definitely return
