This is one of the Friday night date places my wife and I enjoy to frequent. Great little local location and great food. Whether you like classic Italian or a Pittsburgh salad you can find something to eat here that will be perfect. Franco's is one of the best secrets (not that much of a secret) in the region.

Great family run Italian restaurant. Treated like one of their own. Entire menu was enticing. Small dining room so call and make a reservation for dinner.

After years of hearing we should try Franco's, we finally went tonight. It was delicious. My sweetie had the salmon which was a very large portion and served with homemade pasta and broccoli. I had angel hair pasta with the shrimp and scallops over the top... a light garlic and olive oil sauce to compliment everything... yum! The dinners came... More

We had dinner here with friends on a Saturday evening. It was very good, authentic Italian style cooking. The long narrow dining room has pub-style booth seating and, except for a few tables already marked as Reserved, was full. Seating at the bar was also full. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. Lucky we had made reservations. We were greeted... More

I'll be honest. The 1st time I went to Franco's, every booth was empty with a reserved sign. We were told we were welcome to eat at the bar but I thought it was ridiculous and just left. Later a friend took me and we did eat at the bar. And it was... AMAZING. The food. The wine. Fred &... More

One of the "must stop" dining locations in the city. Freddie and Maria are extraordinary hosts, and the home made pastas are the best. Excellent meals, but also a great choice for a steak salad or just the garlic bread with sauce and peppers. If you happen to hit it on a night with live music, that's simply a bonus.
