We were walking down the street in Phoenixville and happened upon this eating place. Good Italian food. I had a huge calzone and it was delicious. My friends had sandwiches and enjoyed them, lots of meat and other things in the sandwich. My hubby had a big salad, very fresh ingredients. Someone ordered the eggplant and said it was delicious.

The pizza is quite good. We usually order pepperoni and pineapple and this one did not disappoint. I would have given them 5 stars but the interior is pretty dark and only one TV was turned on on game day.

Enjoyed a lunch here with friends. It's a satisfying local joint with a nice beer selection and the usual Italian favorites. Friendly service. I had the pasta with meat sauce, tasty and a nice portion. Salad came with it that was fresh. Prices very reasonable.

Twice I've ordered the mussels in white wine sauce and both times was not disappointed. The appetizer is well priced and more than enough for a nice lunch. Their cocktails are yummie too

One of the best linquini with white clam sauce dishes that I ever had! Al dente pasta and flavorful clams! Franco's also has delicious, fresh, homemade dough pizza and a tasty cheese steak with mushrooms! Really enjoyed the comfortable outdoor seating and they have a wonderful wait staff! Looking forward to my next visit!!

I don't understand how this place is rated so high when there are many better options in P-ville. For a family, this is serviceable because of the prices and OK pizza. If you're looking for a nice ambience, avoid. The interior is dark and slightly damp, and there is a constant stream of characters coming through to get 6 packs... More

For several years, I have been a frequent customer of Franco's which is my overall favorite Family owned and operated restaurant in Chester County and probably beyond.

I do not think the food and service is consistent as one reviewer contends. It depends on what you order from the menu. Nice enough but not good enough to make it a favorite.

The Pizza was good, not great. Crust was nice, but the sauce was kind of bland. We got their Monday deal for a $7 Large pie which was definitely worth it, but just nothing special.
