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...

We have been to Della many many times and the food is always excellent. Prices are high but worth it for a nice dinner. But....the attitude of the waiters keeps us from returning. Ask for more bread, never came. Ask to repeat a special, get a hump from the waiter. Ask a question about how a dish is prepared, get... More

Have eaten at Della Francescas often over the past few years. We go here for the more "special" occasions as it has a bit more formal atmosphere than other Italian restaurants locally. The food is always excellent, as is the service. A bit pricey but VERY worth it.

I attended a Bridal Shower at Della Fransesca, a couple of weeks ago: I loved the paintings on the wall. It creates a very special ambiance. The food is Northern Italian and it was very good. I had Veal Marsala that made me clean the plate! The served Cabernet Sauvignon was very good also. To end, I must mention that... More

Enjoyed the food and great service but quite a bit of noise coming from the bar on a Friday or Saturday night. Quieter on week nights and better atmosphere with the food and service.
