This is an authentic Italian restaurant owned by Italians. In spite of being in a strip mall, Franco's is one of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County.

Absolutely love Franco's. THE most reliable and delicious Italian food 😋 in South Florida (or anywhere for that matter). A hidden gem. Well-trained, knowledgeable and efficient staff. The menu is extraordinary--something for everyone. The fish is perfectly prepared, the veal picatta is amazing. Great wine list with many of the best wines available by the glass. Outdoor seating well-heated even on the coolest Florida evenings.

Franco never disappoints. Great food, menu, and atmosphere for many years. I recommend the veal scallopini or mushroom risotto.

Visited recently based on all the positive reviews listed on Open Table and Tripadvisor. Caesar salad was average and the caprese salad had under ripe tomatoes.
Sole francese was good, but not great. Overall did not care for the rigatoni bolognese, found the sauce much too creamy. Sadly that evening my stomach did not like it either. The veal francese was also good not great, minimal sauce on veal. Ricotta cheesecake ok, and the tiramisu was less than average...no coffee/Kahlua flavor. Unfortunately Franco ristorante did not meet our expectations and we would not return.

We have found a great Italian restaurant. Four of us dined out last Friday night. We had a wonderful time. Gilpelto was our waiter and he gave us impeccable service. The food was delicious and we will definitely be returning.

I decided to try this local restaurant rather than driving to West Palm or Delray for my weekly Saturday date night with my wife.
Service was beyond horrible, 30 minutes before taking drink order, I had to ask a bus boy to find my waiter.
Then 30 more minutes to order food.
When we did order food they were out of easy menu items such as Shrimp cocktail.
The server never poured our wine or water and had to be flagged down for anything we needed.
They were only at 25% capacity and had plenty of servers.
The food was alright, nothing great nothing bad but the icing on the cake was THEY RAN OUT OF COFFEE!!
So with no coffee we did not order dessert or after dinner drinks, put an invisible X on the door on our way out and will head back to West Palm for dinner next Saturday.

As usual, the food was outstanding. The service was impeccable. The drinks were generous.
I had the baked clams to start with and they were amazing!
I also had the sole which I actually was only able to finish half of. It was just as great for lunch the next day.
