We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. The food was excellent and the service always comes with a smile. The seafood linguine is my daughters favourite and she says she hasn't tasted better than Franco's.

Superb italian food - lunch service in the deli or restaurant or evening meals. Always excellent with great service in the restaurant (can be a bit surly in the deli but who cares when it tastes so good?
