This was our second visit to Franco Bistro and we invited very close friends to whom we had mentioned that it was a great restaurant. Two of us asked for water while a 3rd asked for a glass of wine and the 4th, a malt whisky. The whisky never arrived and the waiter had to be reminded. My entree which... More

Typical italian dishes done very well. Their bread is fantastic. Don't fill up on it, so you can have their appetizers and main courses. leave room for dessert. we had 3 different veal dishes, all excellent and a branzino that is their specialty. Outdoor dining is delightful, especially in january when the temps are in hte 70's and no bugs.

We discovered Franco's by accident. We were passing by on our way to another restaurant in the same general area and saw the sign above this restaurant. We decided to try, made a reservation and with another couple ate dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and the service excellent.

They have a three course prix fix menu for $25 a great value and a very good meal. The regular menu prices are mid range and the food is a 10. The staff and service very good. Try the salmon, also thr home made mozzarella (caprese salad) a must. Reservations also a must.

I hadn't heard of this restaurant, even though they've evidently been here in Wellington for 3 years (in front of the Wellington mall across Field of Greens). After I told some friends I was going there, I heard that when they first opened, their chef was not very good, but they said to try it now because they have a... More

The FOOD here is amazing! The place is very busy during season (Sept.-Mar.) so reservations are a MUST! Pricing is a bit higher but worth the flavour experience. It has an ambiance inside & out that gives your Italian dining experience more flair. We sat outside where it was lit with string lites & heaters to take off the chill... More

Had 7PM reservation, came in early and went to the bar since it was happy hour. The owner was annoyed that we did not go directly to the table and told us that he would give the table to someone else and was very nasty about it. After sitting down at the table, we wanted to enjoy our wine and... More

Truly everything is great here, but the veal parmesan has me coming back every time! It's always perfectly cooked and seasoned.
