Went to dinner here. The pasta was good, not outstanding. Lasagne very cheesy not alot of meat. Special prawn pesto rigatoni, pasta was overcooked. Highlight was the service very attentive, friendly and kind.

What Italian restaurant doesn't serve pizza?? This was disappointing and the option offered on the kids menu was clearly a frozen supermarket pizza which my son was unimpressed with. My daughter and I had the lasagna which had a burnt after taste which was not pleasant. However my husband had the spaghetti marinara which he enjoyed.

We were in Launceston just after the New Year holiday, so it was hard to find a restaurant that was open at this time, however, we came across Franco's while walking around the city and decided to stop in for a meal.

I ordered the tortellini soup and what I received could only be described as 5 lonely tortellini's floating in yellow-tinged hot water. Tasted like freezer tortellini served in watered-down vegetable stock. My friend also ordered a drink, which never arrived. There's plenty of other places around, go there.

Went for dinner, did not book, got a table. The service was alright, but the options of pasta were limited, and lacked seasoning. The bruschetta was more like cheesy garlic bread, and the pasta was just basic.

We discovered Franco's serendipitously – we were passing by on the way to somewhere else for dinner and decided to give it a try, and we were glad we did! The pasta was delicious, and so was the tiramisu – I especially liked the fact that it did not contain alcohol. Add to that the excellent service, and our dinner... More
