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!

Had dinner here,was very busy for a tuesday night,food was excellent,service was a step beyond,avdi is wasted there,he should be on the stage,he looked after us and kept us entertained all night. Lovely ambience and the oil paintings on the wall were fascinating. Quite pricey but worth it,will go back when I visit friends again

My husband and I went to dinner with another couple and were so pleased. The food, atmosphere, service, etc., etc. was impeccible. We did make reservations in advance and were glad we did as it was a Friday night. The menu is extensive and the number of special dishes was amazing. It is a bit more formal but is a... More

I love the restaurants in the Danbury area, but have avoided Della Fransesca because of the reputation it has for being expensive......it is not!!!!...all veal dishes are priced at $20...other entrees are just as reasonable....and, don't let the exterior setting deceive you....once you walk through the unique entrance it is delightful....the food and service is very good...and the pace of...
