Well worth a visit

Small restaurant slightly out of way, a good 20 mins walk from the city center. A casual restaurant with nothing fancy One of the few restaurants that will serve you tap water rather than force you to buy bottled water. The food was very tasty and the portions were generous. Service was prompt .

We went to Rome for a week and were so impressed that we went back to Francescos! The food was great, especially the pizza and squid. Staff were friendly and there was a nice ambience that did not feel touristy. Good quality not overpriced food-would definitely recommend...and will be going back when I return to Rome!

Linguine with mussels was delicious although I felt my pasta was a little undercooked. My husband had the tuna covered with black sesame seeds, delicious and the fish fresh - that was a better...

Typically Sicilian restaurant, although we didn't each the fish, it looked wonderful. Pasta was a delight, cooked as you'd expect. A little pricey but again you get what you pay for.
