If you want a truly Italian style, east coast pizza this is a must do. I used to come here back in 2008-2009 and it is just as awesome now as then. The owners still work their tails off every night and speak mostly Italian. It is simply the best.

They have the best pizza and cheese steaks in Dover. Friendly staff. Excellent pasta. Everything is made fresh right there. Close to AirForce Base.

My wife and I each ordered the $9.98 lunch special. Diet Coke, very good side salad, fresh bread with oil and garlic and baked ziti. Food was very good. Large portions. Free refills. But very slow service. However, all in all, we would go back again.

We've been patronizing Franco's since it first opened. Our last lunch left much to be desired. Eight of us arrived and had to get our own menus as no one attended our table,We waited at least 20 minutes before a waitress took a water order. Our orders included the salad, pizza, and chicken specials. Our lunches arrived in three segments spaced about 15 minutes apart: 3, then 3 more, then 1 more and finally 1 more. The first three served were finished before the last served got a meal. Unacceptable. The waitress made jest at untimeliness of the service.
Although the quality of the food was acceptable, our experience has probably stricken Franco's off our go-to places for friendly reunions.

Stayed the night at the nearby Best Western on our way home to NY to break up the road trip.....I asked if there was a place nearby to eat....The choices were take out Chinese and an Italian eatery .......being 2nd generation Italian I opted for Franco's .......I struck up a conversation with Carmela, the server.....She was from the same province in Italy as my grandfather....I was encouraged that the meal would be better than anticipated given the location......I was Not disappointed.....beginning with the fried calamari the meal was so good.....my mom and both her parents were excellent cooks so I know Italian cuisine.....the red sauce was superb as was our entire meal...If you are anywhere near here and like Italian look no further....Enjoy!
