Don’t waste your time searching for the crudo and antipasto. This is Bridgeport, where locals eat thick, roasted pork chops (how one person could eat the order of two is beyond us) and big bowls of penne tossed with spicy pesto, capers and succulent nibs of prosciutto. The kitchen can get overzealous with its fire sometimes—an order of lemon-kissed grilled octopus came charred, and the chops a bit dry—so request it toned down.

Love Franco's! Serves delicious, upscale comfort food in a relaxing, vintage atmosphere. Addicted to the sausage and peppers!
Franco's is the best restaurant in Bridgeport hands down. Nightly specials are constantly changing, service is so friendly, and the food fresh and tasty every time! The owners are always on site and they check in with every table to see how their experience is. The prices are very reasonable for the quality.
Love the atmosphere, the quality of the food and the great staff! What a gem we have in this tiny and
