Franco wants to thank Fox25 ZIPTRIP and the support from all the local residents who invited Franco's Trattoria to participate in this event.. He was so sorry he had to decline due to a conflict with a previously scheduled cardiology appointment..

So glad Paani could share their treats. Their authentic Indian meals are always fresh and delicious. One of Metrowest's jewels, and well worth the drive.
