Excellent Italian

We were traveling through town and didn't know where to go. We stayed at the Ethan Allen Hotel which was very comfortable and found this restaurant. We sat at the bar as there was a wait. The bar staff was very friendly and helpful as well as other visitors. The food and drinks were terrific. It... read more

Food was good. The decor is a bit kitschy. Good place to see people who enjoy a few martinis with dinner.

I usually have a seafood dish. Every time the fish has been fresh and cooked to perfection. I love the choices of accompaniments that come with the meal, usually something different and prepared wonderfully. My husband usually has the osso bucco; which is one of their dishes they are known for. Being from Italy and eating in many of manhattans... More

I hosted a graduation dinner for my nephew at Della Fransesca on June 25, 2015.....what a perfect choice! The ambiance, service and food were perfection! The menu afforded a wide range of selections, and when my finicky, teenaged niece found the selections "too fancy" for her taste, the waiter was happy to accommodate her with a more simple pasta dish....

Went with my husband and two children. Quiet Italian restaurant with a lot of waitstaff and average food. Prices were reasonable, the waiter was Irritated by my questions regarding the menu items. My husband had a seafood pasta dish that he loved, i had chicken parmigiana that was average, a little salty and small portion. The restaurant was dark, maybe... More

Tucked away in a corner its easy to miss but do not miss it! If you enjoy true Italian cuisine, you will be more than impressed here. The service is exceptional but the food and wine is above par. Our party of 3 started with Caprese, Mozzarella Tower, Clams Oregenata and the Portobello mushroom with crab cake (special menu). The... More

I had never heard nor seen Della Fransesca as it is not in a particularly noticeable location; a friend took me there for lunch a couple weeks ago. The exterior fooled me, and I was unsure how this was going to play out. Surprisingly, it was one of the best lunches I have had, especially in the Danbury Mall area.... More
