Welcome to Franco's Ristorante

Franco’s Ristorante is uniquely located inside Carlisle’s only medieval building: The Guildhall which was built in 1407.

We offer a wide range of authentic Italian cuisine set within a comfortable, relaxed environment featuring Venetian artwork by the artist Terry Moore. Our friendly, hospitable atmosphere makes us the perfect location for parties, work functions, families and couples.

At Franco’s, our menu has something for everyone, ranging from traditional pizza and pasta dishes to chicken, veal, steak and fresh fish based dishes. We also offer vegetarian options and a children’s menu as well as our Piattini menu which offers lighter Italian tapas dishes starting from just £3.40!

Come and visit us today, we are situated in Carlisle's town centre, making it ideal for shoppers!
