Franco Trattoria

Franco and Melannie’s smile radiate as they show off some of their tasty specialties at their brand new restaurant, Franco Trattoria, in Uptown Whittier.  Only open for a week or so, it’s showing signs of pleasing many customers.  Already with an “A” rating, they were excited  to share their Italian heritage with me and other guests.  Franco, previous owner of a Gelato store in the Inland Empire, has taken his talent and love of cooking great food to a new level.

Melanie shops the local farmer’s markets and other suppliers for fresh ingredients, daily.  The menu changes every day depending on what they have purchased.

Kaitlyn, my dear friend’s daughter, and I, met for dinner this evening, and we decided to split our meal.  That way we could try more items.  We started off with an appetizer, Bruschetta con Pomodoro.  The authentic Italian cheese is locally made fresh every day.  We, also, sampled Prociutto Parmacotto, imported from Parma.  We split a delicious Insalata Mista, and spinach ravioli.  To finish off our meal we had Macedonia di Frutta.  There was plenty of food for both of us, but if you are an Italian food lover, you will want your very own meal.

We had a great time, and plan to visit again, soon.  This gives me another reason to visit all the cute stores on Greenleaf.  Their address is 6717 Greenleaf, Whittier, CA 90601  Phone 562-696-1188. Their lunch hours are 11:00 am to 2:30 and re-open for dinner service at 5:00, and close at 9:00 pm.  They are open every day, but closed on Wednesdays to recharge their batteries.  It’s a lot of work running your own restaurant.
