Every time I go to Franco's, I leave full, satisfied, and asking myself why I don't go more often. Authentic scratch food is delicious and staff makes you feel like part of their family! Although it is tucked away in a strip mall, you will feel like you have walked into a bit of Italy and will not be disappointed... More

The family that runs this restaurant knows the Italian menu inside and period they Pride themselves on excellent tasting dishes and delivering great service. I dine here frequently and have never been disappointed. All of their dishes have their signature unbelievably tasty sauce. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the shrimp parmigiana-the portion size was large, and our... More

Stopped in with friends and ordered the lunch specials, 1 soup/salad, 1 lasagna / salad, & 1 chicken parmigiana/ salad. All were excellent. Served with fresh bread too.

No matter what you order here you won't be disappointed. This is some of the best Italian food I've ever had. That greatness also translates to the pizza which is phenomenal! Even the bread they bring out to the table is amazing. Stop reading this and go eat there now.

I've been to Franco's numerous times throughout the years and it's always been a favorite in Dover. I've never had a bad meal and services is always efficient. My favorite is the veggie hoagie. If you are a vegetarian they have toasted or cold and either is a treat!

We love this place. Hot fresh bread, olive oil for dipping, good salads, great lasagna! Calamari and cheese-steaks are good. Spaghetti and meatballs real good. Nice wine list and staff is very nice. Not a fancy place but real good food! Pizza is very good as well.

A group of friends suggested lunch at Franco's. Having never been there, decided to give it a try. Franco's is in a strip mall near the airbase. Got there early, looked at the place, nothing special for décor, lots of tables. Asked lady at counter where our group was going to sit as reservations had been made. Looked like someone... More
