Description: Difranco's Restaurant in Litchfield is located on the corner of West Street and is the only Restaurant with Outside Dining. The prices are fair and the service is friendly. The food is excellent and at a great price. Our PIzza is great because we make the dough fresh every day and it is a nice New York Style Pizza that is thin.

When located up the street, this pizza place was acceptable, and the pizza actually quite good at times. However, stopping in last week at the "new" larger location I was SO disappointed. I had the special, a personal pizza with salad for eight bucks. The salad was old, with a yellowed cucumber slice topping a wilted bowl of greens, smelly... More

We just happened to be hungry, passing through Litchfield, no time to check reviews, and stumbled upon DiFranco's. What good fortune! The atmosphere was quiet, clean, and tasteful. I've eaten a lot of pizza over the years and this was the best! A medium meatlovers was enough for two with leftovers for dinner. Wish we lived closer.

We used to frequent DiFranco's on the corner of Litchfield Green before they moved to the former Aspen Garden. The food was pretty good and it was an okay place to bring children. To cut this short I will itemize what was unacceptable on our first visit to this new location Following is what we ordered. Hot Italian grinder: not... More

We made reservations for 16 people on the patio for 5:30 sharp. They had everything ready for our party. They had 2 waitress's assigned to our table. Wonderful evening was had by all. The owner came out thru out the meal to make sure every one had what they needed. We would go back again.

We'd heard a few good things about this place, and the atmosphere is very cute, so we decided to try it. Mistake! My Reuben came on grilled rye, but the pastrami was cold, Oscar Mayer quality at best. The bread was grilled, but that was it. I never would have ordered a cold pastrami sandwich. My fiancee's steak and cheese... More

Have been going to this restaurant for years and years. Prior to them moving it was great. Was there recently, ordered a italian grinder - it had "maybe" 1.5 slices of ham, 1 slice of salami, 1 slice of cheese and LOTS of lettuce - it was terrible...and not cheap. Will not be back.

Cavatelli were way overcooked and the sausage tasted like breakfast sausage, my salad tasted moldy the only good thing out of the two dinners was the shrimp!

Even though I've been burned (stomach wise) by this restaurant before I always hope next time will be better. It never is.
