Always reliable

It's always good to eat at Francesco's. The food is good and fresh. Service is attentive and fast. Noticed some new items in the menu. This time I had Linguine Francesco’s (calamari rings and prawns cooked in chilli and garlic). Very good. If I need to criticize anything I would say the pasta could... read more

We dined at Francescos in Maidenhead last evening and enjoyed our visit very much. We did book, just as well because it was very busy. The service was great and the food, spaghetti carbonara, risotto & pizza were all excellent. We will be going there again when we have seats booked for the local cinema.

Pleasantly informal & relaxed, so attracting a comprehensive range of age groups. An interesting menu attracts a return visit. Trying the 'flagship' Linguini Francesco's, I was impressed by the generous king prawn content, no short measures, here, for self or friends. Drinks list does well to concentrate on Italian wines.

Another visit to this Italian eatery did not disappoint. Four of us ordered a selection of starters which looked, and smelled, good. My fish pasta main course, came replete with fish in the spaghetti the highlight being it surrounded by seven perna canaliculus, green lipped New Zealand mussels, yummy. The service here is excellent and, this being my fourth visit,... More

Visited with business partners for lunch and ordered, for the most part, pasta dishes. We also had some garlic bread and olives to start with. Service was brisk, but friendly, although as is the case in many Italian restaurants, they don't trust you to add pepper to dishes yourself - why do they do that? I had linguine marinara and...

For a Sunday lunch I can recommend Francesco's without hesitation. Try the thin crust pizza made from dough freshly prepared on the premises. The lasagne is also a solid choice. A full bar with Peroni on tap compliments the efficient service. Overall, a pleasing find in a market increasingly overloaded with the same.
