Franco & Paolo’s opened its doors to diners last night at the new restaurant in Centre Way and today (October 26) will be open for lunch sittings too.

The friends, who have worked in the catering industry for 25 years, co-own the family-run business and will be officially launching an open night on November 12 – with hopes of a surprise local celebrity guest.
