Found on Rupert Street at the heart of London’s West End, a mere stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Soho, Franco’s provides the diners of London’s capital city with a medley of Italian style eats.
Flickering candles, jars of olive oil and Chianti bottles hanging off the ceiling combine to create a dining room that offers the utmost intimacy and relaxation – ideal for spending time with loved ones.
Now accepting the tastecard, the restaurant offers a warm welcome, and some great value food, to members that call in advance and produce their card upon arrival. Beginning with one of the scrumptious starters, where a refreshing prosciutto ham and melon combo can be found alongside a scrumptious collection of deep-fried calamari, guests are sure to be enchanted from the very first bite.
Next up, the usual Italian favourites of the pizza and pasta are readily available, while there are also a range of other delightful options available for all that care to partake. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the glorious scaloppine al limone, a veal escalope in a delectable lemon and white wine sauce, the heavenly branzino alla griglia, a herb-stuffed whole sea bass grilled in olive oil, and the gratifying salcicce con polenta, a tender Italian sausage in a tomato, onion and berlotti bean sauce.
Considering the superb savings, visitors are encouraged to conclude the feast in style with one of the divine desserts, such as the traditional wonder that is the tiramisu and the heavenly caramel sauce covered orange, served with a complementary Grand Marnier, before dipping into the pocket in the enjoyment of a beverage or two from the extensive drinks menu.
Please note: The restaurant is currently undergoing major refurbishment.
