Zolo’s Italian eatery in downtown Franklin, is all about your family. 
In July 2007 Zolo's Italian restaurant opened on 5th avenue north in historic Franklin. True members of the community, this family owned and operated restaurant supports local efforts in all sorts of ways from non-profit organizations like A Vintage Affair
to Sister Cities. 

Zolo’s Italian restaurant loves the big Italian family atmosphere. We are kid friendly,
complete with special menu. “We love having regulars; they’re like family to us,
love it when families come, and come often – and have their celebrations
with us.”

Most everything is made in house, even salad dressings. The eatery
does a lot with seafood in addition to the expected Italian made from
scratch lasagna and spaghetti.
“We get our seafood fresh, never frozen, “We get whole salmons and trim and portion them here. We buy from the Franklin Farmers Market and Reed’s Produce. We do not buy frozen, institutional food.”
Often featured is  a pan fried soft-shell crab with basil and aioli sauce.
All herbs are fresh just like the produce and seafood.
This dinner- only restaurant has an a la carte standing menu, plus
daily specials. Drink specials are in the offing as well.
“We have a good wine list,” “We serve by the glass or
bottle or you can bring your own wine.
