Meet the real Franco!

OMG, I couldn’t believe it when I bumped into the real ‘Franco’ today! Former Bath Restaurateur Frannco Bartolotta was the ‘muse’ for my lovely character of Franco in both Girl Cop books. There are several scenes in the restaurant as Sally often pops into Franco’s both whilst on patrol and in her free time. The amusing tale of Claude the Fraud is also set here! Frannco’s restaurant was in fact in Gay Street and not in Milsom Street (as in Girl Cop) and was undoubtedly the best Italian in Bath! I was delighted to see him having not seen him for many years since the restaurant closed – and even more delighted with this pic!        Frannco
