Sorry, but I don't know what some of these other people are talking about.
Every time I have gone to this restaurant , the service has been impeccable, the food has been delicious and fresh, and the atmosphere amazing.

The food takes a little longer to come out because it is cooked fresh to order. If you don't like it, go eat at the Olive Garden or open a can of Chef-Boy-R-D! As for service, they keep a small staff of friend wait-persons, because it is a FAMILY restaurant. That is a major part of its appeal. There are literally generations of a family working there.

I think some people on this site just come on here to complain. As for the service dog story--that's just bull. There is NO way that the restaurant owner did that.

Franco's is delish and authentic. Don't like the real thing? Go back to Macaroni Grill, you nasty suburbanite!

Just as a couple other reviewers have posted, I have driven past Francos for a couple years and never tried it. We were craving good pizza/pasta and decided to try it out.
It didn't seem very busy so this was the perfect time (a Friday evening).

We entered the restaurant and no, they were not busy at all and we saw the sign asking us to wait to be seated. Well, one waiter looked up at us when we entered and the other gentleman looked up as well as he was cleaning off a table (that was directly in front of the door where we were waiting).
Well... we waited and waited and no said hello, no one said welcome, no one even acknowledged us. I tried calling out, "excuse me sir!" but the gentleman I mentioned earlier, never even turned his head.

I was a bit disappointed so we turned around and began walking out... no one even came after us.

Sorry to say but first impressions mean a lot!

Like most of the people in Morningside, I drove by Franco's for years, and now after trying it, I eat there at least once a week. From a wide variety of freshly prepared pizza to terrific dinner entrees and really fresh salads, their wide selection contains something for everyone, from business lunchers to serious foodies. The wait staff is second to none, and is always happy to make suggestions or answer questions. Definitely worth a try or a repeat visit!

Francos had a wine special, which we tasted, accepted, and had two glasses poured. We then realized we did not care for the wine. They took back the two glasses, did not charge us for them, and said "We just want you to be happy." We were! The food was wonderful, the service warm and perfect. We were so pleased and recommend this place highly. A grand neighborhood joint, with excellent food and a terrific atmosphere. Mangia!

This is my 3rd visit to this restaurant. What a delight, fantastic food/service and a great atmosphere. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anybody.
The waiting staff are attentive, particluarly the owner and nobody could do enough to please me.
I had pizza which was wonderful and such attention to detail made this a memorable dining experience.
Cant wait to come back or get a take away.

The food is very good, but the portions are small especially for the cost. I like the chicken ceasar salad sandwich. Great bread and ceasar dressing. I stopped going to lunch because of the prices.

I am really disappointed with the food and service. I was looking for a good italian food, but instead it looked liked it was a left over food that was re-heated. I complained to the manager and but instead I was given the attitude of "too bad, that's what we have". My experience is, terrible, bad, terrible.

Only one of us had pizza, but it was excellent (much better than Osteria's in my opinion). I had the roasted chicken, which was excellent. And the eggplant parmesan was the some of the best I've had (baked, not fried!). My husband had a huge pork chop, says it was best he's ever had. But mostly, we had just the opposite experience with the owner!! He stopped by our table specially, asked how we liked individual dishes, told us about some of the new entrees, & couldn't have been nicer. We've been here more than once & usually have pizza, but now I'm interested in trying more of the other dishes based on our experience. Definitely recommend giving this place a try - spinach salad was very different also, with an olive oil based dressing & feta cheese.

Pros: Food & the friendly owner & staff

Cons: Traffic out front, but owner seems to be trying to create some ambience

.

If the Owner would stay away the place would be better. He is rude. The food is good. The wait staff is very pleasant. The portions are small and the prices are too high...top that off with a rude owner and it is not worth stopping by.

There are better Italian Food stores in Atlanta with MUCH BETTER prices. Osteria is much better!!!

The seating is not in tune with the kitchen...takes way too long to get a meal.

Did my group have a bad experience? You bet we did and we will never go back.

Last week we were greeted by the owner who let us know we were not welcome in the restaurant with my wife's service animal. The owner ignorantly pointed out that my wife's dog did not appear to be a 'seeing-eye-dog' My wife's dog, which had a service animal vest and credentials (neither of which are required by the way) is small and alerts my wife to a medical condition before it happens. We politely explained to the owner that there were other types of service animals other than seeing eye dogs, but he did not seem interested and made it clear that we were not welcome. This is the ONLY restaurant in Atlanta we have been denied entry into for years!!. Restaurants can be fined up to $55,000 for the first offense for denying a handicapped person entry. We have filed a complaint with the ADA, and have several witnesses to the incident.

Seating for 6 people was two tables for two and, they refused to give proper seating. Food was not worth the very cramped seating.

My husband and I moved here recently from Brooklyn. Franco's is the only place in Atlanta that is as close as it gets to authentic Italian. The people are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is amazing. The wine selection is great and are reasonably priced.

I am glad to recommend Francos as the best Italian restaurant with great ambience and realistically priced food. Food is prepared after you order and does not got from freezer to microwave. This family owned restaurant takes great pride in making sure that each guest feels welcome. The owner and staff spend time talking with each customer to be sure that everything meets the customer's needs. If I have a question about how a particular dish is prepared, the owner or any of his staff is glad to share with the guest exactly how the dish is cooked.

This is a relaxing restaurant that does not rush it's customers and takes pride in pleasing each customer and making sure that everyone receives the personal attention desired. I am delighted to be able to recommend Francos. This is not a fast serve pizza house; it is a wonderful restaurant that serves a tremendous variety of dishes created and cooked with great care. You leave satisfied with the food and the realistic price for any meal. What a treat to have high consistent quality of food coupled with a very user friendly staff. We could not do without it.

Franco's is in my neighborhood. I eat there probably once every week or so and have for the past 10 years. Menu is always creative. More than just fabulous pizza - great entree dishes, usually involving heavenly cream sauces, pasta, and meat or sea food. The ingredients are fresh, tasty and consistently good.. Service is of a kind that one seldom experiences anymore. You are as likely to be waited on by the owner Kia as by one of the wait staff whom he treats like family. TWO THUMBS UP.

I've been going to Franco's for over 5 years now. And while the menu has changed a bit over time it has never disappointed (Please try the new Arriabiatta or the always good Pesto!!!!). The wine list has greatly expanded and has some fantastic hidden gems (MacMurray Pinot Noir & Cline Syrah). Service is quick & friendly. The entire place has a feel of family. I've gone there alone, with my parents, with a date and with my wife and have always come away with a feeling of contentment. Please go and enjoy!

Thank you for being the institution that you are. I was a child when my parents took me there originally for pizza. Since then over 30 years have passed, I have grown and so has the wonderful menu. I have taken my wife there and we enjoyed the ambience, the service but always first and foremost the food.It is superb and I was glad to see you on one of my favorite sites. I showed this to my wife and she just gushed. We will be there next weekend with Bells on. So if you have an opportunity to read this, thank you for being simply the best, in a world of redundency. SEE YOU SOON

GOD I LOVE FRANCO's - seriously, it is THE BEST PIZZA I have ever had in my entire life! This is not an overstatement, it is that good, and you won't be disappointed. The inside atmosphere of the restaurant is alright, kinda lame, the outside enclosed spot is really cool for a date, but the pizza is what makes this place. YUM. So good, and cheezy and warm. I always got a cheese pizza with red onions and sometimes garlic on top, it hit the spot! I haven't been back in a while, because i live so far away, but now I'm salivating, so I may just have to get my Franco's fix this weekend.

Francos is easy to pass by. The decor is dominated by shades of yellow and terra cotta.Great place for casual dining or for an evening with friends.This Italian restaurant serves soup and appetizers, sandwiches, gourmet and traditional pizzas, salads with homemade dressings, flavorful pastas and seafood and steak entrees. Franco's continues to stand out as one of the best values in Atlanta for good food and great wine!

You won't be dissapointed!

We had dinner at Franco's on the last evening of 2007. It's one of our favorite restaurants where we have eaten for the past 15 years. We still love going there but I have to say we aren't happy with the "new" menu. Some of our favorite dishes are gone...like the spicy penne pasta, fettucini al fredo with roasted veggies, and the greek salad is gone too (sorry the spinich salad isn't the same). We will contine going to Franco's but wish they would bring back the old menu.

I have been going to Francos for almost 5 years, and it just keeps getting better. Their food is consistently excellent and their wine list is great and keeps getting better. It seems that other Atlanta food lovers are finding this place because the past two weekends that I have been there they have been wicked busy, but, and this is the best part, the service was no different than an idle tuesday night. bring a date, bring a fellow worker, bring a friend or bring your family you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I have been going to Franco's for years. We've introduced the restaurant's delicious food and warm inviting enivronment to all of our friends and family. While we used to live relatively close to the restaurant, we now live out in the burbs and never hesitate driving 30 minutes (and sometimes more with traffic!) so that we can enjoy Kia's flavorful recipes. Franco's is definitely one of Atlanta's best kept secrets.

My boyfriend and I were visiting the Atlanta area and got on citysearch to find a great place to eat...we sure found one. Franco's is a lovely place to eat. THe decor of the resturant is very nice and provides an intimate setting. THere is even patio seating, which I am a huge fan of. The drink menu is right in line with a REAL Italian Restaurant. THey have a large wine selection. The menu has many different things to choose from, but I would personally order the nightly specials. The food not only tasted great, but was nicely presented...almost better than what the people on Top Chef serve up. THe next time I visit Atlanta I will stop at Franco's again!

The food is consistently great, the service is freindly, no waits or reservations required - kid friendly - central location - Franco's offers everything a great restaurant should. It's not super-hip, and the menu rarely changes -but that's a GOOD thing. I have been to great restaurants in cities around the world, but Franco's has flavorful food fit to compete with just about any restuarant anywhere!

Francos is easy to pass by. It's in the middle of one of the busiest intersections in Atlanta. I'd probably driven by it hundreds of times before a friend took me there. I can't believe that this place is not always packed! The food is wonderful and the service is attentive. I especially like their salads and seafood dishes. My girlfriend had to find a place to bring her parents, brother, sister-in-law and their two kids, and we decided on Francos. They were very patient with her young niece and nephew. I would recommend Francos to couples on dates or with big groups. You won't be dissapointed!

Driving by I always thought this place was a pizza joint until I stopped in one evening. The decor is wonderful...copper lights and lots of plants! The food is the most consistent and incredible that I've had in Atlanta. I hear that most of the music they play is by DJ Habersham who alledgedly works there part time... Don't let the name fool you!

This place has the best pizza in Atlanta and there is never a wait. It is a little more expensive than Mellow Mushroom or Felini's, but it is worth every penny. We always get the barbecue chicken pizza, it blows CPK out of the water!

If you could look up "Family run Italian Restaurant" in the dictionary, Franco's would be the definition. Homemade Italian food, good wines, and FABULOUS desserts, make this place a foodlovers dream. The staff is friendly too! The only complaint: they don't have Red Velvet Cake anymore. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO TRY THIS PLACE!

If you could look up "Family run Italian Restaurant" in the dictionary, Franco's would be the definition. Homemade Italian food, good wines, and FABULOUS desserts, make this place a foodlovers dream. The staff is friendly too! The only complaint: they don't have Red Velvet Cake anymore. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO TRY THIS PLACE!

Pros: the spagettii, the ziti, the homemade bread

Cons: no red velvet cake

Franco's features one of the friendliest waitstaffs in Atlanta and flawless service. The restraunt's decor is constantly improving - recent additions include a glass porch for chillier nights.

My personal favorite touch at Franco's is the music. Compilation CDs made by our favorite waiter are featured on the soundsystem every night. Soothing deep house courtesy of Ananda Project, Sade, ADNY truly make the atmosphere.

The menu features pasta dishes, pizza, salads and starters. I highly recommend the ceasar salad, focaccia, lasagna and bbq chicken pizza.
