Good Italian restaurant. Not super-fancy, but nice ambiance regardless. Service was good. Bread was good and salads were better than what you'd get at a place like Olive Garden. I am not a big fan of Italian dressing, but what they have here is Italian dressing with a twist and it wasn't bad at all. Both dishes we tried were... More

Went to Franco and Vinny's on recommendation of 2 employees at the hotel we were staying at. We took a chance and it was awesome! It is a family owned restaurant with some of the best food ever! Not over-priced, not over-crowded, but for sure a busy place. Try their tavern pizza and lasagna or any seafood dish. The night... More

We visited Ft Lauderdale 3 years ago staying with a friend who uses Franco and Vinny's often. We must have eaten here at least 3 times in that previous visit. On our return on 24th April it was our Must Return request of our hostess. Very disappointed with one of the waitresses from Denmark. You know who you are! Your... More

Great Italian food with large portions. Good service. a little close quartered and can be noisy, but worth it. They have been here as long as I have been coming to Lauderdale (over 20 years). Parking can be a little limited, but additional parking is at the Mexican restaurant.

Had dinner here our first night in Ft. Lauderdale. Felt like I was in a true Italian restaurant. Maria, our server was so sweet and gave honest answers when asked about the meal descriptions and taste. We got two different chicken dishes and pizza. All were perfect! Service was great! I would definitely go back again.

After two starters we were afraid for the main course: als huge! The quality was just fine. A good balsa between price and quality. Very friendly service

You know its good from the moment you walk in the front door. We were seated immediately on a busy night. The server was a friendly man from Albania I believe. The pasta truly was of homemade quality and their sauces were delicious. Maybe one of the best Italian meals I have enjoyed since a trip to Italy.

We were in Ft. Lauderdale the first week in April before and after a cruise. We ate her twice in 1 week. Veal Sorrentino was awesome. Great garlic bread and mozzarella sticks. Salad and home made bread comes with your dinner (not extra). Service was great. Servers were polite and knowledgable. Great for people with nut allergies. No pesto sauces... More

Went in Friday night. Place was busy but seeing it was only two of us, got seated right away. Order was taken promptly but no water was brought to us. We ordered wine but that's no excuse for not bringing water. Had to ask several times for bread which was cold. Salad took a while to arrive. The chef deserves... More
