O

ur simple blackboard menu at Franco Choo’s offers honest Italian food which respects ingredients and avoids fussiness, yet often yields something unexpected. The menu is written up with a small but varied selection of entrees, mains, desserts and side dishes. It changes on the whole monthly but may be updated to suit market availability. The menu on the night you dine with us may have changed from the one you see online, especially during monthly phase in periods.

There are usually two vegetarian dishes or dishes that can be made to suit on the menu and we can accommodate most dietary requirements with some notice. Because our menu is small, it is best to give us a call to discuss your preferences when you are making a booking.

Drinks

L

ike our food menu, the drinks list is tight and concise, leaving you with more time to enjoy the night and less time spent on scrutinising the list. It features a hand-picked selection of hard-to-find beers and wines sourced from boutique producers. Try an Arneis or become acquainted with Nebbiolo.

Having a small list is driven by practicality. We just don’t have much storage space. Even though our list is compact, we make regular changes to our wine selection. The beer range also varies depending on brewing runs and supplies available in the local marketplace. Occasionally there may be a wine vintage change, but when this occurs, we never ‘roll over’ to a new vintage without having assessed it first. Sometimes a wine may be unavailable for this reason. If your beverage of choice is not available, we’ll point you in the direction of an alternative.

Some varieties and regions may not be familiar to you. We can demystify the choices and help you discover something new to suit different tastes and occasions. Please note: We are fully-licensed and do not offer BYO.
