One of my favorite places which keeps bringing me back to the Bronx. The food is wonderful and the service is amazing. If feels like you’re visiting old friends. Absolutely worth the trip. Will keep going back.

This was my first time at Da’Franco’s and it certainly won’t be my last. The staff went out of their way to make our visit a welcoming and wonderful experience. The food, cocktails “French Martini’s” and service were top notch. as well as the cozy and warm atmosphere and ambience. What enhanced the evening is that they never rushed us and we were able to enjoy a nice relaxing evening for over 4 hours. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Loved it!

When you are one of 2 tables occupied, you shouldn't have to get up and ask for water refills. Beverage service was poor but food is excellent. I'd go back and bring a water bottle lol.

We went here because the reviews were so phenomenal. I don't think it lived up to the hype, but it was good. The Bronx has Italian restaurants with food which inspires. This place had good food, but not inspirational. Sit in the back room for a much quieter ambiance. The front room was very noisy this past Saturday night.

We had a wonderful lunch in one of our favorite restaurants. As always the friendly service was prompt and impeccable.
My wife had Chicken Francaise which was tender and cooked to perfection, served with roasted vegetables.
I had the Gnocchi Sorrentino which were light, had little pieces of fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes in a delicious sauce.
We shared a piece of fresh Tiramisu to go along with our Cappuccino and coffee.

Breaded artichoke, grilled octopus, chicken park and lobster risotto were all excellent. Valet parking. Wait staff couldn't be nicer. This is the real deal.

Italian at its finest. Went on Valentine's Day. There was a set menu. For my appetizer got the fried calamari. It was excellent. For my main course I got NY strip steak with a goronzola sauce. It was great. For dessert I got chocolate souffle. I liked that very much as well. Though it could have been bigger. It was a little pricey but got didn't mind because the quality of the food was outstanding. The restaurant also gives you freshly baked bread for free when you arrive. The bread was great.

Everything is always spot on in this restaurant. The service is spectacular - very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Always a nice selection of specials to choose from, but they have a nice regular menu as well. Appreciate the cheese/olive platter before the meal and the free after dinner drink is a nice touch!

We wanted to stay local for our two year anniversary, and the weather outside was not the best, so we decided to try this restaurant! We’ve always loved the pasta from the pizza shop next door and assumed the restaurant would be similar. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety of menu items and the extensive dessert menu! Everything from the bread to the whipped cream with the desserts was amazing. We will definitely return and are now considering the venue for future family events!

After we discovered this hidden gem about 2 years ago we went to see if first impressions will last; they wowed us. This place is consistently good and the service and care are outstanding. They care for their diners.

We had a wonderful time — as always. The food was so good. My husband enjoyed his appetizer and I had the minestrone soup to start. It was just like the one my mom made for me. I loved it. My husband had the shrimp risotto. It was wonderful (I tasted it) especially the shrimp. I had the filet of sole which was prepared just right. And the desserts....
