The Franklin Hotel is hands down one of the BEST restaurants in the City of Rome. From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Carol or Mary Vescio til the time you are walking out stuffed to the gills. The prices...More

Stopped for lunch. First time here. The entrance was a bit confusing but we figured it out and found the hostess. I have to agree with other reviews, the hostess was unfriendly. Our server more than made up for it, she was friendly, helpful and...More
