We sampled the Guinness stew today and ate fish & chips and corned beef and cabbage. Truly fantastic! Our server, Jake, was very good!

Had dinner here Saturday night with a group of friends. Best Itailian food I ever had!!! Food portions were huge, you definitely get your moneys worth. Service was great, not something you always get when you are with a large group. This is definitely a little taste of heaven in Troy.

We had a bad experience at Franco's a couple of years ago and never went back until last week. We heard they had new owners and a new chef so we decided to give it another chance. We are so glad we did. Our experience was much better, the food was excellent. The tomato basil soup was to die for and the salmon special was excellent. We can't wait to go back!

I have enjoyed dining at Franco's for several years (as recently as last week). The food has always been excellent (especially the garlic bread)! When busy, the service has been a little slow, but that's typical of any restaurant.

You'll get a good value for your money. I highly recommend it.

I had been here some 10 years ago with my dad, needless to say it was NOT memorable. Now LOTS of years later my husband and I decided to give it a try with a coupon, service was soooo slow, non attentive, soup was ok, dinner was horrible it tasted like someone just opened a can of tomato sauce and warmed it, then tossed it over the pasta. So I brought it to the managers attention, she asked that I get another dish with QUITE a bit of difficulty, at this point my husband left our bottle of wine and went outside, I told her I did not care for anything else. She then brouhgt me the bill, with not a bit of discount, mind you I had not eaten but one bite of this so called food. So I paid for a 15.00 plate of franco american. Just wrong. To sum it all up in my opnion this place really sucks DO NOT waste your money, go to Olive Garden.

I was very excited to try this restaurant. However, it was less than great. The service was fine but the food wasn't all that good! For the price the quantity should have been doubled. The Olive Garden actually has better tasting food. Huge disappointment!

Went there about one month ago. Service was very good and Italian food was on par with most other Italian restaurants. Think we will try somewhere else though.

We've been dining at Franco's Cafe for 15 years. Although we have a variety of meals there, I've never tasted a better Filet Mignon for the money. It melts in your mouth. My husband and I love the Italian side dishes. You won't be disappointed
