Lovely setting, cosy intimate environment, friendly staff, quick service, fantastic food
Eating at Franco's is like being in Italy. The owner, Giovanni is genial and hospitable, and all of the staff are accomodating and friendly. Looking around at the other diners, you can tell that most of them are regulars, coming here, for the fantastic food and service they know they will get here every time. The pizza is done in a stone oven and is thin and crisp and divine, and the pasta is always al dente and perfect. Giovanni always has a range of interesting specials, or you can opt for the fresh fish or a perfectly cooked meat dish. The home made tiramisu finishes off the meal perfectly, and if you can manage it, they are very proud of their authentic italian coffee, which perks you up just enough to enable you to get home.
The best thing about Franco's apart from the superb food and very reasonably priced wines, is the fact that you know just how much Giovanni cares about his restuarant and the people who frequent it and love it. I've even been there when a table couldnt get a taxi, and Giovanni put his coat on, picked up his keys and drove them home. Now that's service.
