I had to argue with them to accept the Groupon; said they no longer participated even tho the Groupon had not expired. Food's okay tho. Ask for a non-singing table if it's opera night and you're not a fan. We got stuck listening and not conversing.

The gratuity based on the value of the meal was included in the check. Not a criticism-I liked the idea-just a tip. Also, don't be surprised at the special (two entrees and wine for $29.95 Mon-Thurs) that is offered even if it looks close to the Groupon cost; the special menu has limited choice. Groupon was a great value!

They added an 18% gratuity to our bill-not expecting that. We definitely would have left a generous tip but thought this was a little much.

Very small place but very nice. The food was wonderful. They have a Opera night every Sunday. Though we weren't there for opera night, we will go back because it's the perfect setting. I felt like I was back in Italy.

We went on a Saturday evening for dinner. It was wonderful. It was quiet, the food was outstanding and we even had a man playing wonderful dinner time music. I don't remember when I had a lovelier evening.

From Our Editors

Owner Franco Abbruzzetti himself selects all the produce, meat, and fish used by the chefs at his Trattoria Da Franco. That's how invested he is in the quality of the meals shared under his roof. Open since 1985 and occupying a 300-year-old European-style rowhouse, the eatery offers up many traditional Italian dishes that are just as charming as the building they're served in. Steak and seafood entrees are prominent on the menu here, as are housemade pastas and pizzas. The saltimbocca alla romana showcases veal saut?ed in marsala wine and the homemade minestrone alla romana soup comes chock full of tender veggies. Waiters also pour wines from Italy, France, and North America and pastry chefs bake up decadent desserts and custom cakes for special occasions and any time someone has eaten their way through the entire menu.
