Always a wonderful experience. My husband had the Chicken Martini with pasta and the same sauce which he loves. I always get the fish special which are always a wonderful choice they never disappoint. They are always willing to please their customers so if you like extra garlic or no garlic just ask and I have to mention they make wonderful Martinis! Staff are all professional and friendly. A wonderful comfortable atmosphere. ‘Home away from home’.

The friendliest and most professional service in the Bronx. My go-to local restaurant since they opened about five years ago. The menu is solid, but I almost always order off the specials list. Most nights they feature steaks, chops and fresh pasta specials. A real gem.

Loved everything about this restaurant from the warm welcome, the friendly service and the quality of food. Spent a day at the Train Show in the Botanical Gardens, walked and shopped on Arthur Avenue, then headed to the restaurant which was only around a 15 minute drive away. Family shared smoked mozzarella with fig sauce and fried calamari for appetizers. We had two Linguini Frutti di Mare which were excellent. Others had the Linguini with white clam sauce and a New York Strip which was cooked to perfection.

Always great food, good ambiance and relatively reasonable. The only think that kills me about the place is that they keep their wine at room temperature, around 72 degrees. Every Italian knows it's best at around 57 degrees, the temperature in the typical cellar! How do they not know this! The wine tastes totally different warm. I can't order it by the bottle there.

This was my first time at Da’Franco’s and it certainly won’t be my last. The staff went out of their way to make our visit a welcoming and wonderful experience. The food, cocktails “French Martini’s” and service were top notch. as well as the cozy and warm atmosphere and ambience. What enhanced the evening is that they never rushed us and we were able to enjoy a nice relaxing evening for over 4 hours. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Loved it!

When you are one of 2 tables occupied, you shouldn't have to get up and ask for water refills. Beverage service was poor but food is excellent. I'd go back and bring a water bottle lol.

We went here because the reviews were so phenomenal. I don't think it lived up to the hype, but it was good. The Bronx has Italian restaurants with food which inspires. This place had good food, but not inspirational. Sit in the back room for a much quieter ambiance. The front room was very noisy this past Saturday night.

We had a wonderful lunch in one of our favorite restaurants. As always the friendly service was prompt and impeccable.
My wife had Chicken Francaise which was tender and cooked to perfection, served with roasted vegetables.
I had the Gnocchi Sorrentino which were light, had little pieces of fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes in a delicious sauce.
We shared a piece of fresh Tiramisu to go along with our Cappuccino and coffee.

Italian at its finest. Went on Valentine's Day. There was a set menu. For my appetizer got the fried calamari. It was excellent. For my main course I got NY strip steak with a goronzola sauce. It was great. For dessert I got chocolate souffle. I liked that very much as well. Though it could have been bigger. It was a little pricey but got didn't mind because the quality of the food was outstanding. The restaurant also gives you freshly baked bread for free when you arrive. The bread was great.
