    Magento is the best and powerful framework for e-commerce site, but it's very gigantic and hard to learn.

    If we accept Magento as a PHP Framework, it is the best on the theory for e-commerces. They implemented best software and DB patterns on it. My prefer is Laravel clearly.

    I had several Applications done with ZendFramework so i would vote for that or Symfony.

    I had a look a laravel 1.5 years ago or so, biggest down site for me at that time was that with almost each release even minor releases it broke backwards compatibility.
    Also Laravel was (or is a one man show run by Tylor). For now I can't say if it's still that with releases and the one man show.

    As most PHP Frameworks are component packages now a days you should consider, what you or your dev team is firm with, and maybe build your app with the components from different frameworks.

    I prefer Laravel, although there are other good frameworks out there.

    Laravel also. Definitely powerful, and some nice CRUD librairies (Laravel Backpack).

    I recently installed Magento. It's a steeper learning curve for sure, but I've read you get a lot more than WP+Woo.

    Keep in mind if you pick Magento, you will probably need at least a VPS - lots of permissions and access required that shared hosts don't provide.

    Laravel have a lot of out-of-box things going on for everything that comes to payments and stuff. But Magento(not sure if I would call it framework) is actually made for building e-commerce sites and it uses PHP on the backend.
