Franco Di Roma is an unassuming place from the outside, it sits in a strip mall near the Middletown Farm store on Rt 211. Inside it looks better, but is still unassuming in a quant way. We were seated in the front, they have another dining room in the back, and given menus by a very pleasant waitress. Teresa decided on the eggplant parmesan at twelve bucks and I ordered the veal sorentino at seventeen bucks. Both came with pasta and a choice of soup or salad. These are two of our favorite dishes, and we often use them as a benchmark in comparing restaurants.
Well, both were excellent. My veal was three pieces of meat with ample prosciutto and a delicate sauce that did not overwhelm the veal. The same sauce was on the penne pasta. The eggplant was quite nice as well with no bitter taste and a nice red sauce.
Overall, I would say this is a place you should try sometime. It is a diamond in the rough.
