The restaurant is near the adriatic sea and it has a beautiful view. The food is very good with some good white wines. I liked the appetizer warm and cold.

Good service, they accepted us even if it was quite late and we had no reservation. No complaints on food, spaghetti allo scoglio were nicely cooked, maybe we would have liked a little more shells. Fried calamari enjoyable. White house wine good value. Simple atmosphere, good for families.

We had a lovely meal and the service was great. The cold antipasti was delicious and pastas were excellent. The location is lovely overlooking the harbor.

Did not like the look of our hotel (school) dining room and so we ate at Franco and it was well worth the short walk into the marina area. The restaurant was busy mainly with Italians. The seafood risotto and the spaghetti with clams were VG. The house white wine was inexpensive and very drinkable. Good service from friendly staff... More

This is a very good restaurant and I am surprised by it's lowly position in the restaurants classification. It does appear to be visited by many locals of a certain age whom maybe do not review. Great location especially in summer as the Marina di Pescara can be a nice area for quiet walk around either before or after the... More

Went with a group of friends and had a really nice table but the food was really ordinary. The starters were all drowned in oil, the pasta dishes were tasteless, I think they forgot to add salt ! The second was seafood in a red sauce which seemed more like a soup rather than a red sauce. It was all... More
