We stopped in at Franco's fairly late in the evening because we saw many cars and thought that was a good indication of the food quality. The server was very nice, atmosphere was "homey", we liked Franco's. The specialty was a favorite of mine: Italian...More

The special (served prior to 6 PM) is back and is very good. Especially the chicken masala. It is served with a salad and small side of spaghetti and some freshed baked rolls, all for under $10. Their wine on happy hour is very good...More

My sister-in-law loves the chicken Marsala at Franco's. My husband also ate the Marsala. He said it was alright, but if you want a really good Marsala, go to Gambino's in Fairhope. I got the sautéed grouper on angel hair pasta (no sauce). I can't...More

We stopped in here by chance. Looked like a strip mall restaurant from the outside, but much nicer than that when you get close. There was live music when we were there. Fast and friendly service. Outside seating was also available. We enjoyed the visit.

We were the first customers in the door for lunch. The floor was still being mopped! Bread was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, a buttery little knot of deliciousness! Salad was abundant and fresh. Entrees were to-do. We loved the Fettuccino...More

Ate there the other day. My wife ordered chicken Marsala. One bite and sent it back. It was not Marsala at all. It looked like chicken, but had maple syrup on it. I ate several bites then sent mine back. We expected a visit from...More

The food was good but not outstanding. The staff and especially e new manager was very nice and inviting. We went two nights once for dinner and the other time for an after dinner drink. We so enjoyed the entertainment provided.

I don't think so. However, different times/days may lead to different attire. During the weekdays & nights, more casual clothes seems to be the standard. On Sunday after church, this is a more family oriented place... More
