Franco’s Italian Caffe

Franco Fazzouli was born in Florence, Italy in 1942. After a stint as a paratrooper in the Italian Army, he got his start in the restaurant business the way so many do—washing dishes. In his early 20s, he was already the proud co-owner of his own restaurant trattoria in Florence, which unfortunately was destroyed in a massive flood. This was the beginning of his journey to America, where he would go on to own and operate multiple successful restaurants throughout New York City. With a love for the southwest, Scottsdale is lucky to have the nationally acclaimed Italian restaurant, Franco’s Italian Caffe, featuring Tuscan entrees just like Franco’s mother used to make at home.

Like Taking a Trip to Italy

Franco has a fan base. It is a group of loyal followers who discovered his intimate caffe and they just can’t get enough of it. When you step through the front door, Franco will greet you with a smile at the helm of his oversized (and very Italian) reservation book. The dining room is tastefully designed to create a relaxing atmosphere, fostered by the scent of delicious food and happy guests.

Once you’ve been seated, begin your journey to Florence by perusing the extensive wine list. Available by the glass or bottle, you’ll love the crisp taste of delicious red, white, sparkling, or sweet wine as it hits your lips. Begin your meal with one or two authentic antipasti, such as the bruschetta, portobello mushrooms, or the baked asparagus with prosciutto. Enjoy a crisp house salad or venture instead for the authentic Caesar, beet arugula, or seafood salad. It’s the perfect wake-up call to your taste buds which we promise you, by the time your main entree arrives, your tastebuds will be singing.

The menu has a perfect variety of options to satisfy every palate without overwhelming you with decisions. If you’re craving the comfort of gourmet pasta, Franco’s offers everything from meat and cheese to a creamy sauce with seafood. If you’re gluten-free, no longer do you have to pine for someone else’s delicious pasta while you eat a salad because Franco has a gluten-free pasta just for you! But that’s not all. With a unique twist on chicken, pork chops, veal, and prime-cut steaks, truly there is something for everyone. Just be sure to leave room for dessert because trust us, you do not want to miss out on the mascarpone cheesecake or tiramisu.

This is the most clean Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. The house is extremely stunning and cozy. It’s so we’ll cared for and clean that the sheets smelled like Softener. The amount of detail in that house has is something to really appreciate. The movie theater is wonderful alongside with the pool. Oh! And it’s fully stocked with everything you need . This house was one of the best. Looking forward to stay here again in the future. Everything was smooth and communication with the host was great 10/10

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the cleanliness of this unit! I have never been in a rental cleaner than this! Not one stray hair or fuzzball could be found. This rental has anything and everything you need! The kitchen is fully equipped with any small appliance you would need, a multitude of cooking spices, oils and nonstick spray. Aluminum foil , sandwich bags, sharpies and batteries were even available! The beds, couch and furnishings were comfortable and felt great after our long days exploring the area. Even the 2 foldaway beds were a hit with a couple of our teenagers. In the garage we were happy to have available a bike repair stand and multiple bike tools, including a standing pump and wrenches. Also available in the garage was a giant Jenga set and a cornhole set that our teenagers had a ball with having nightly tournaments. It’s perfectly located in my opinion. It’s a quick bike ride or drive to town and to area attractions. We were primarily there for mountain biking, but also visited Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. We also took a rafting trip on the Colorado River. This was the best trip we’ve had in years and that is mostly due to this rental! We had no issues and no complaints! Great job hosts! You are truly making vacation dreams come true!

Stress free vacation! All the family was able to be together in one location. Normally we have a caravan of travel trailers where everyone goes and hides to get out of the heat. Being able to eat together, watch movies together and get on the razors and ride right to the trails made all the difference. My grandkids didn't want to leave, neither did my nieces. They loved the pool and bike ride to the yogurt shop. Perfect location, tons of parking for several trailers, excellent customer service and very clean. I would stay a hundred times more!

We booked this house to come together for my daughters 8th birthday celebration at the lake, and wow were we impressed! Beautiful home, very modern minimalist style. All amenities provided! No need to bring toiletries they have the best products! The kitchen is fully stocked, you’ll have enough dishes for 20 plus! Exceptionally clean! The showers are like a spa, and they have soft water so, you come out with super soft skin. The backyard is an oasis, for all ages. The kids and adults can all enjoy at the same time! You will love this place. It’s close to the lake and the AC is always at the perfect temp! We will be booking this palace in the future for sure!!!!

This property was everything it was described as. Spacious, clean, great spaces for gathering. We stayed 3 nights here with 21 people and we had a blast. About a ten minute drive from the “downtown” area of lake Haveasu. I couldn’t be more pleased with the property. Overall it made our trip and we had a wonderful time. Would absolutely return!

We all loved our visit to Moab. It was comforting to come back to this place after a day in the elements, feeling like we were luxuriating after working out hard. This place is well stocked. From the kitchen appliances, cookware and even condiments to the linens and bathroom soaps and lotions, we kept commenting that this was the best stocked vacation rental any of us had experienced. Having the garage to store our bikes and other gear made it easy to come and go. The team we texted with about questions or reports about problems were always responsive and accommodating. We recommend this place without question.

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks
