Description
Italian dining for all the family, the latest venture by Franco, creator of the Flying Pizza.
Family restaurants since 1969.

Franco's Italian Restaurant at Thorpe Park is now in its fourth year of trading and boasts a first class reputation for good food and friendly hospitality, especially towards family groups with young children. To this purpose Franco has devised a healthy menu sourced from local suppliers to suit diners of all ages.
