Ate here the night before the Pensacola Marathon (I only ran the half). Excellent pasta, ice cold beer, and a great family atmosphere. I had Chicken Parm that was delicious and hit the spot. Guarantee I will return here on my next trip.

This is a plain, no-nonsense restaurant serving a wide range of basic, well prepared Italian food in generous quantities at reasonable prices. My wife had baked oyster parmesan which she described as excellent. I had what I always love to get, spaghetti and meatballs. But the menu is wide ranging from pizza to chicken and veal dishes and of course,... More

Honestly I wasn't expecting a lot from this restaurant but I was so wrong!! They have the best spaghetti carbonara and they were also super fast getting our food out.

Franco has been producing fine Italian Food for decades in Northwest Florida. We love dining here regularly. The dishes are authentic as is the atmosphere. Staff is friendly and courteous and the service is snappy. Down to earth and delicious!

Italian food done the right way, not that overpriced pre-cooked frozen crap from Olive Garden. The lasagna is awesome, the calamari is crispy and light, the seafood scampi is phenom, and the italian meatballs are tender and oh so tasty! But I have to say that I think my favorite thing is the house dressing. The servers are attentive, the... More

We had our Christmas dinner here for work. First the oyster appetizer tasted like rubber. It was horrible. Then 6 of us ordered Filet Mignon. The waitress came back and stated they only had (3) Filet's and could we substitute for a Rib Eye which (3) of us did (I was one of them).. The steak was pencil thin and... More
