Franco’s Trattoria In East Falls
City Paper gives the lowdown on Franco’s Trattoria, the recently opened Italian in East Falls.
While capitalizing on the building’s existing strengths, Franco’s also seems to have taken a different tack than its predecessor by keeping the food simple and straightforward, a parade of red-sauced pastas, thin-pounded meats and other South Philly familiars. It’s the kind of menu that offers enough variety to keep you coming back, yet enough sameness to be comforting. Portion size is large, and with a number of wines available by the glass in the $6 to $8 range, dinner here is a good value.
