Our Story

Established by the esteemed Vittorio (Victor) DiVivo in 2012, Franco Italian Bistro has been a beloved fixture in Wellington, Florida, offering a delectable fusion of Italian flavors and flair. Born in Italy and fueled by a passion for culinary excellence, Vittorio DiVivo brought decades of experience to his venture, having made his mark in the restaurant industry since immigrating to the US at the age of 16. With a remarkable portfolio of over 80 pizza shops under his belt, his dedication to quality and authenticity laid the foundation for what would become a cherished community gem.

Today, Franco Italian Bistro continues its legacy under the stewardship of Adam and Janine, who took the reins in March 2023. With their shared love for hospitality and a rich heritage rooted in the culinary world, Adam and Janine Hopkins, alongside their four young children, infuse the restaurant with warmth, passion, and a commitment to excellence. Drawing from their upbringing around restaurants, including family-owned establishments along the Mississippi coast, Adam and Janine bring a wealth of knowledge and a fresh perspective to the Wellington dining scene.
