Recently our local women's club had a luncheon at Franco's. We were set up in a private room that was very nice. The food was wonderful! The chicken pastina soup is everyone's favorite, and the chicken picatta was perfect. Just the right amount of lemony goodness. Our waitress, Carrie, handed all 17 of us promptly with professionalism and a smile!... More

Pasta dishes are to die for also excellent calamari. Wine list is very reasonable. My wife order the Salmon with bow tie pasta and she said it's the beast Damon she has had. The serving are also very large.

I ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna and cleaned my plate! Everything was delicious. Our service was excellent also. The owner was there, always a good sign. Thanks, we will be back!

Excellent from appetizer of fried zucchini, Caprese salad & Eggplant parm - the only downside - no room for dessert!

First time here with family that lives locally. Six for lunch. The menu had a nice variety and everyone was pleased. We started with the zucchini appetizer, have had better but these were pretty good, the horseradish dipping sauce was excellent. I had the Jullianna salad with salmon...salmon was an add on for $8, well worth it. The salmon was... More

My wife and I had dinner with two friends last night and was pleasantly surprised at the improvement of the quality of food. We have been to Franco's once before a few years ago and were not pleased with the quality of food. This time the quality of the food was superb! I had fettuccine with meat sauce. The pasta... More

This was a 6:30 reservation for a celebratory dinner. We are frequent patrons. Our waitress was such a disappointment. She never told us the specials. We had to ask for them when she came to take our order. While enjoying a bottle of wine with our meal, we were asked at least 4 times if we wanted to pack the... More

We enjoy Franco's Trattoria for not just its food but for the upscale dining within a homey, local feel. Every time I go, I can't get anything but the tremendous shrimp scampi, on par with the great Tambellini's in Highland Park. You just want to sop up as much of that signature sauce as possible. Enjoy a side of pasta... More

I am a long time patron of Franco's and it almost pains me to write this review but the quality of both the food and the service has been slipping for some time now. I have had most things on the menu and just the overall food preparation is just not there. Last evening I had the Juliana Salad which... More

This was our first time at the new location in Peters. The atmosphere is different since it's a new building but the quality is still THE BEST. This is our go-to date night spot because my boyfriend and I have very different tastes and this is one of the few we both love and niether person has to settle or... More
