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

After searching online for a restaurant for Valentine's Day, I decided upon Della Fransesca. It was absolutely wonderful from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure. The staff was professional, efficient and friendly. The restaurant was intimate, romantic and lovely. The wine was superb, as was the food. Desert was delicious, and accompanied by the best cappuccino I... More

We went with friends for my birthday which was during the week. There were excellent specials offered even though it was a Wednesday. I had halibut with a wine and lemon sauce and a friend had filet mignon with a sauce that had fresh lobster in it. The food was very good. There were many Italian dishes on the menu.... More

Don't pass this place up. The service was top notch, the food was so fresh and expertly prepared. The portions were perfect. It was a great experience. Next time I pass thru, I would stop again, no doubt about it.

Laid back atmosphere with scrumptious food and great wine! Ending the night with their own homemade Sambuca, it was delish!
