On a recent visit to this Italian Restaurant, my husband and I enjoyed two great Italian dinners. However on another visit a few weeks later, I decided to order the 8 oz Strip Steak also on the early-bird special menu. The steak was horrible--definitely not a strip steak and nowhere near an 8oz portion. The steak was full of inedible... More

First of all, why the title of this review? Before eating here, we read some of the reviews and in one of them, the reviewer said he couldn't give 5 stars because the restaurant background music was Frank Sinatra and he hated Sinatra. Well, ole blue eyes is still there and singing in the background! We both had veal parmigiana... More

We had a delicious meal, great service and live entertainment was very good. In time for the early bird specials. Veal and chicken Marsala were both very tasty!

Several of our group enjoyed the early-bird specials. I ordered the veal which was very tender and covered with a delicious marinara sauce. Salad was excellent as was the bread served with the meal. Will definitely try this place again upon my return to this area.

Patronized the restaurant twice. The first time the fried calamari was over fried so it was chewy and like rubber and the entrée was so so. Thinking it was a off day gave the restaurant another chance...this time the fried calamari was over fried again and lukewarm. Our steaks were so over cooked began done... that we sent them back...

No flavor to the food-period. Two of our forks were dirty. We really expected a good meal based on other peoples reviews. If I were you, I would spend my hard earned money elsewhere.

Had the Stromboli and a salad. They were both delicious. The meal also came with bread. The Stromboli must have been 12" long and we wished we had split one since the salad was also a generous portion.

Franco's is one of our favorites...we keep going back. Today we were there for the early-bird specials, and both of us ordered the Seafood Lasagne for $10.99. It's lasagna layered with cheeses, shrimp, scallops, crab, spinach and Alfredo sauce. Just delicious. Also a side of spaghetti is included. It's served with fabulous salad and garlic rolls. We also had cheesecake... More

What can you say about an Italian restaurant in Orange Beach, Alabama in a strip mall? How about OMG, THAT WAS DELICIOUS! Hubby and I went in early in the evening for a pizza. When I looked at the early bird menu (before 6), I decided on the eggplant rollatini instead. He ordered the pizza. My meal came with a... More

My wife and I attended Franco's in Orange Beach, AL on Friday night to listen to some great live music and to try their pizza. We knew that Kathy Lyons of the Pensacola Jazz Society would be entertaining. Turned out that she and a gentleman were a fantastic team, providing us with great music to listen to and dance to....
