It's one of my regular places. Delightful choice of champagne. So refreshing and reassuring ! I stopped yesterday after work. A couple of flutes (Laurent Perrier), complementary mini bruschettas. Two words with the cheering bearded man serving tables outside. Away from the frenzy central grief. Green trees around...the boulevard ! The offer of bubbles by the glass changes periodically. The...

Like wine? well, this place is meant to satisfy (almost) any your oenological desire. They offer a plenty of options from Italy and other traditional wine countries, with some peculiar brands, at a right price. From 5 to hundred euros, they will give you what your taste need to spend great times in the neighborhood. Pity that there are no... More

A great classic with great bottles (from Italy, France and elsewhere), friendly service, good food and very reasonable prices. Top wines and great knowledge of the wine world. Franco is a favorite for any real wine lovers in Milan (full of locals, no tourists). Look no further.

Great wines accompanied by a great food selection: Italian culture unfolds thanks to Franco's passion and spirit of adventure. Every bite and every sip are a surprise. We always go there when we are looking for something special.

The food was excellent, the wine recommended by the waiter was very good. This place is quite far from the main tourist locations and hence the prices are very reasonable. They don't have an english menu and the staff is not fluent in english, this might be a problem for non-italian speakers.

Food is good not great--pasta excellent --cotolette normal--dessert verygood as is wine choice. Service indifferent but the restaurant has tobe avoided at al costs from June-September. Air conditioning doesn'tworkor if itdoes they are too cheapto putiton. Youlose your appetite and they do nothing about it. Thumbs down in the summer

The place itself is quite nice the service was nothing special especially considering that the standard in milan is quite high. When i asked the waiter to recommend a wine... More
