“wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2010

I was staying at the nearby Crowne Plaza Hotel for a month, and once I discovered Franco's I ate there as often as I could, at least every other day. The food was always superb--my favorites were the grilled octopus, the grilled orata, the gnocchi, linguine scoglio (grilled seafood), scallops, salsiccia and broccoli rabe. The wine list is excellent, with very good Italian wines at reasonable prices. The service is excellent; Signor Biagio and Franco himself are charming and friendly. The noise level is low and conversation-friendly. There is a very nice private room where I organized a cast party which was enjoyed by all.
