Unfortunately, for all of us who live in or visit RTW, Signor Franco's has now closed after 20 years fantastic service; RTW is devastated! I'm sorry to be the bearer of such sad tidings. I will try and review alternatives for you.

Visited earlier in the year with my girlfriend for dinner. Felt the reviews didn't do it justice - as far as Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas goes, this is a pretty authentic Italian dining experience. Staff were attentive but not too pushy, and were very...More

It had a patchy history. It's now (in the last year or so) much better though and with a visit. It suffered from poorly trained and inattentive staff, overpriced and rather average food. It's Laissez Fare attitude propped up by its family history and previously...More

I loved this place, the food and staff were great. The only slight disappointment was the dessert - I ordered a Tiramisu which was a little dry.

This place really is a very good Italian restaurant. Beyond the deceptively ordinary entrance stairway lies a refined and elegant restaurant, set in a wonderful upstairs conservatory. From the moment you walk in, the service is attentive and efficient. White tablecloths and freshly arranged vases...More

A favourite in Tunbridge Wells since the 1990s, Signor Franco Ristorante is a vibrant yet sophisticated Italian restaurant, staging wine tasting and live music sessions. Championing use of the finest possible ingredients, head chef Francesco Furriello sources from a trusted stock of Kent-based suppliers, many of whom receive daily deliveries of produce imported direct from Italy. A bright and airy first floor conservatory dining room leads onto an upstairs terrace, which overlooks the bustle of Tunbridge Wells High Street.
