My mother and I went to Franco & Luigis hoping to have a great meal and it was quite the opposite. The place was empty so there is no excuse for them. Our entrees arrived and mine was quite good. My mother's dish was the worst thing I've ever tasted. It was supossed to be a dish of pasta seafood and vodka sauce. It tasted like cinnamon. Someone in the kitchen grabbed the wrong spice. I called the waitress over and she went back into the kitchen to talk to the chef. She then brought the dish back out to my mother (who does that), and told us she was going to charge us for it. Keep in mind nothing had been eaten. She said she could give us pasta w marinara to replace it, but we had to pay for the original dish ($25). She then asked us if we wanted to take it home. Why would we want to take home something so disgusting. We paid for what was eaten (my dish), left a tip and headed out. The owner was too busy taking a private phone call to discuss the problem with us so we left. He chased us out yelling something about us not going out to eat very much. At that my mother and I laughed at him for making such a scene when he was wrong and we drove away. When my mother got home she noticed that the waitress boxed half of a ravioli from my dish, which was much less than was left on my plate. I'm sorry we paid for anything and I'm sorry we tipped such a pathetic excuse for a waitress. Never eat there! They use BAD BUSINESS practices!

I recently dined here amongst a party of four. A quaint, Italian restaurant, discreetly nestled in the back of a pizzaria. Live opera music (must be silent during the performances as noted in the menu). Several of the guest performed a song on there make shift elevated stage and the talented accordion player was able to pick up in chime in with some of the songs that were not in "the book". Yes, there is a music book there to pick out the song you'd like to sing or hear the solo instrumentalist play.
The four walls of the restaurant were lined with all sorts of dated paictures of Center City landmarks and "old people", lighting was soft and service was exceptional.
We went on a Thursday evening, the dinning room was at about 75% capacity.
Make reservations to be on the safe side as we did.

Pros: Authenticity, Service, Excellent food

Cons: Slightly off the beaten path. Dinning room sort of hidden.

Very cozy So. Philly red sauce restaurant with added bonus of singing staff. Food is good and wholesome and plentiful! And it is BYOB. However their great pizza is take out only.
Parking is a problem and it can get quite noisy but that is part of the fun. If you want to experience a neighborhood Italian spot where all the locals go, this is it.

i was expecting a delicious dish of pasta, as i've enjoyed many times in the past. no more pasta dishes? what kind of italian restaurant are you? my waiter was drunk (at the least). the usually charming host was no where to be seen. the talent, well not up to par. To top all this the prices have increased and the quality decreased. if people in the restaurant business would stop getting so greedy and pay more attention to the goings on of their establishment, maybe they'd be in business a bit longer? i looked forward to going to this eatery at least 3 times per month, they will never see me or the many friends that i've sent there over the past couple years, you lost it!!

After an ok dinner at Franco & Luigi's I came home & decided to read some review, since I was there once before & it was romantic (at least that's how I remembered it) took my wife for our anniversary(tonight). Let me begin by saying it didn't 'stink', the food was good. I had to laugh when I read the review from "not what I expected",I too had the same waiter, it had to be. He was a little guy who was very full of himself, and although I found his flirtting with my wife ammusing, she didn't. So, although the restaurant didn't totally suck, the service was STRANGE to say the least, and my anniversary wasn't what I'd planned. I also was wondering where is Franco? of "FRANCO & LUIGI"?? The other time I was there, he was a great presence. WHERE DID HE GO?

Pros: singing, byob

Cons: blah

I was told to take my girlfriend (now fiance) to this romantic spot, since I was looking for the perfect place to propose. It was so small & so crowded, that I heard the complete lives of those next to us! That wasn't the worst, our server Mr. Guido-South Philly, was hitting on my girl the entire time, and thought I was one of his 'corner hanging boys', it was the worst evening ever. The food was not close to anything I expected & as for the singing, to be desired. Just what is so romantic about that?

Pros: can't think of any

Cons: server, cramped

The prices have increased and the quality of food has decreased. Service is not as prompt as in the past. Still good pizza and wonderful opera singing.

Stumbled across while looking for small homey restaurants in S Phila. Like landing in heaven. Some of the friendliest and most talented wait staff I have ever encountered. The singing is as professional as it gets. Have gone back and taken friends who were as enchanted as we were. Food is wonderful especially calamari appetizer with hot peppers. We come from AC and love to sample S Phila restaurants. If there is one better, I do not know where it is. Do not be turned off by the exterior that looks like a pizza shop. Take your lover for a very romantic dinner.

Pros: Wait Staff, Food, Music

Cons: None

This is THE BEST pizza in Philly, hands down. I've eaten, well, more pizza than I probably should have in this city. The restaurant's pretty good too, but if you're ever wondering what to have on a lazy Wednesday night, F&L's is it!

My lover and I ventured into this charming BYOB and were intoxicated by the talented staff and wonderful food. My lover had the Pollo puccini (the house specialty). While I had the Bolognese. My lover was dissapointed that our waitress did not volunteer to get us more wine from the local wine store....otherwise the staff was very accomodating. We were amazed by the vocal talents of the staff...except for the guy with the glasses (boo!). My lover and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: My lover, Bolognese, My lover

Cons: , More wine

The service was friendly and fast. The waitresses and chefs intermittenly sung operetta's and the whole place had awarm, friendly atmosphere that made it seem like the whole place knew each other. The food was nothing short of spectacular. While it might not win international acclaim, it is easily as good as restaruants at twice the price. I had baked manicotti which was among the best i'd ever had and the large, juicy balls of meat were the best i'd ever had in a restaurant. Great place for a date or a dinner among old friends. Make a reservation if you are more than two.
