Visited recently based on all the positive reviews listed on Open Table and Tripadvisor. Caesar salad was average and the caprese salad had under ripe tomatoes.
Sole francese was good, but not great. Overall did not care for the rigatoni bolognese, found the sauce much too creamy. Sadly that evening my stomach did not like it either. The veal francese was also good not great, minimal sauce on veal. Ricotta cheesecake ok, and the tiramisu was less than average...no coffee/Kahlua flavor. Unfortunately Franco ristorante did not meet our expectations and we would not return.

Excellent food, great service in a quiet romantic atmosphere perfect for those discerning diners hoping for a special place for a nice evening out.

When we dine out at an italian restaurant especially since we’re italian we truly appreciate authentically prepared quality Italian dishes and Franco’s never disappoints.

Our highest recommendations for this consistently excellent local restaurant

We have found a great Italian restaurant. Four of us dined out last Friday night. We had a wonderful time. Gilpelto was our waiter and he gave us impeccable service. The food was delicious and we will definitely be returning.

I decided to try this local restaurant rather than driving to West Palm or Delray for my weekly Saturday date night with my wife.
Service was beyond horrible, 30 minutes before taking drink order, I had to ask a bus boy to find my waiter.
Then 30 more minutes to order food.
When we did order food they were out of easy menu items such as Shrimp cocktail.
The server never poured our wine or water and had to be flagged down for anything we needed.
They were only at 25% capacity and had plenty of servers.
The food was alright, nothing great nothing bad but the icing on the cake was THEY RAN OUT OF COFFEE!!
So with no coffee we did not order dessert or after dinner drinks, put an invisible X on the door on our way out and will head back to West Palm for dinner next Saturday.

As usual, the food was outstanding. The service was impeccable. The drinks were generous.
I had the baked clams to start with and they were amazing!
I also had the sole which I actually was only able to finish half of. It was just as great for lunch the next day.

The food was amazing! The brucetta has the sweetest tomatoes. We had the chicken parm and pasta bolognese. Both were delicious and plentiful. The table bread was warm and tasted freshly baked.

Everyone was friendly from the moment we walked in. The service was top notch

We have a vacation home here in the area and are down this way 3-5 times a year. So glad we found this restaurant. It will be one of you new “go to” spots when we are here.

We will definitely be back!!!

Must say we were so glad to get out of the house! This was our first dining out experience in 6 weeks and it was phenomenal! The ambiance was just wonderful the food divine and service was impeccable! Major suggestion definitely try the pork chop with champagne cream mushroom sauce! So good used just the fork so tender and flavorful!
