    Easily my favourite Italian restaurant. Try anything and you're sure to enjoy it. The seafood risotto is amazing. Full of flavour and so well priced. The pastas are delicious and are bound to make you feel happy. Overall, the service is friendly. The restaurant is family owed and you definitely get that vibe, which is good. Last time I was there, I ordered a Salmon special . Unfortunately the salmon was finished. So the owner made a prawn pasta just for me that was not on the menu! I love this place. Give it a go.
    I’ve been eating at Franco’s for about 35 years. Still family run and still the best pizzas on the block! Consistent and delicious, great for a night out with the family
    Franco’s is our absolute favourite go-to place on a cold winter’s evening or a balmy summer’s night. Their pizzas and pastas are amazing and it’s always on the same, high standard. Do try their specials of the day too - you’ll find wonderfully different kinds of pastas on the specials board. Franco himself is on the floor every night and makes all his guests feel like kings and queens. The rest of his staff are super friendly and professional. And you are allowed one bottle of wine with no corkage payable. It’s an absolute gem!
    Can never go wrong with Franco's! Stumbled across their soups and now I am hooked (and so are my friends!) They do a seafood soup in a tomato base crammed with seafood in this heavenly tomato broth. I always ask them to hold on the cream as this broth is just delish! They use the same broth for their mussels. There is also a Ravioli Brodo. The silky meat filled pockets in a tomato broth. Not as heavy as the fish broth, light and almost clear. You can see the finely chopped celery, carrots and onion floating. It is YUM! They also serve a decent Red wine by the glass. They never disappoint!
    Franco's is one of the best restaurants in JHB. Friendly, attentive service with incredibly tasty, hearty food-what more could one ask for! It's the sort of place that you can go to either on a Monday or Friday night. And their corkage policy allows for you to drink your first bottle of wine from home for free!
