Franklin is good for a nice dinner. It is all nice homemade Italian American dishes. The real show stopper here is the desserts. The dessert counter is right inside the door and it is enough to make you want to abandon your dinner plans and just eat a plate of cannolis and lobster claws. YUM.

Also I love the waitress Kelly!

They make you feel like your a part of the family. Like stepping back into the 50's.
Servings over fill the plate (Save room for dessert) Like eating at your Italian ant and uncles' place.

Really good and authentic food. Their greens are fabulous. I try to come at least twice a year. Their desserts are very very good.

We were visiting our hometown for a wedding and had lunch at the Franklin, a restaurant we've eaten at many times in the past. If you like spicy foods the fried long hot peppers are always a good choice, especially to eat with the bread they make at the restaurant daily. Everyone got something different, meatballs, pasta, chicken Parma sandwich and French dip sandwich. We were all happy with what we got for lunch and the tomato sauce has really improved. We did not have dessert but they are known for their pasteries which are homemade and delicious. It is not a fancy restaurant. It has been in the same building for years and the same family still owns and operates it. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive.

The Franklin Hotel is hands down one of the BEST restaurants in the City of Rome. From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Carol or Mary Vescio til the time you are walking out stuffed to the gills. The prices are affordable with portions large enough for 2 people. The daily specials are consistently good but varied enough so you are not bored by the same thing all the time. They offer everything from Burgers and Steaks to every kind of Italian Pastas and Entrees yoiu can think of to Steak and don't forget the Tripe. You must plan your trip to The Franklin knowing that you can't skip the Pastry Case before you go home !!
