Franco's cafe has been serving fine Italian cuisine in the city of Troy for over 20 years. Our food is homemade with fresh, quality ingredients and served in hearty, yet healthy portions. Come in for of our authentic Italian pasta dishes, try one of our daily specials or just sit back and enjoy a cocktail.
This place must have changed owners. We had been going there for a while and the food was always very good. We tried it again last night and what a change. One in our party ordered Veal Marsala. The veal was very thick and extremely tough; couldn't even eat it. It didn't even resemble Veal Marsala. At a cost of $19 it was a great disappointment. My dish, chicken Parmigiana, was OK. The sauce was tasteless and very watery. We ordered 2 martinees and did not specify top shelf vodka; the cost, $14.00. We eat out quite a bit and do not mind paying for quality but this meal was very poorly done. Seriously doubt if we will ever go there again.
We went with a group of 8 and had perfect evening. This place is like being in Italy. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Many of us took our extras to go for the next day. They have a large wine selection and many many premium liquers as well as thier wells. The prices were moderate and the ambiance was wonderful. The desserts were authentic made by the chef himself. Its tucked away in Century Plaza but we found it and will be back. Its our new favorite retaurant as well as our friends. We highly suggest it to all people from romantic coulpes to families.
