Francesco's is a lovely intimate Peruvian restaurant. We arrived on a Saturday night at 6:45 and it was not busy. We were told that most people don't arrive until 8:30. Francesco's does not have a full liquor license so only beer and wine is served. There is a nice selection of wine, however. We ordered the lobster cerviche to begin... More

I've been to in Florida. This small, intimate restaurant is first class from the white tablecloths to the superb service and good wine selection. And the food? In a word, it's fantastic. They have Prefix lunch and dinner meals, or you can order off the menu. My wife & I stopped in for lunch and did a bit of each.... More

My friends took me to Francesco's for lunch to celebrate my birthday. All of us (group of 5) loved the food. We ordered the ceviche sampler which gives you a little of everything; shrimp, fish, calamari, octopus in three different sauces. The appetizer is for 2 but it was good enough for five of us. The lunch menu has an... More

Friends introduced us to Francesco, a spot off the beaten path in Coral Gables. For some reason (maybe their marketing needs a boost), they are a bit of an unknown in some circles. We enjoyed the setting, the menu, and the service. Theirs is not the typical "new build" restaurant. Personality, and intimate are two words that come to mind.... More

Had dinner there with my wife and son. It was fantastic! We tried a bit of everything, suggested by the very knowledgeable and friendly waiter. I don't think there was a single thing we didn't like. Its small, quaint, the food is prepared well, and they will adapt to whatever you want. Half portion? No problem. We ended up eating... More

First time in Francesco, had lunch and must say, was very impressed with their food. Both the quality and quantity was excellent, we all had the Black rice with Shrimp, which had a great taste and the rice was cooked to perfection, the portion was very healthy and can be somewhat filling. As an appetizer had the Ceviche with 3... More

Francesco is a cozy little restaurant serving top class Peruvian Cuisine. This was our first visit but will definitely not be the last. The food is very good and so is the service. The list of cebiche is pretty extensive. My Wife ordered the Cebiche Mixto, it was very good. The Pulpo Parrilla (Grilled Octopus) was my choice and a... More

I have been to this restaurant like 5 times in the past year and it has consistently served great dishes. I helps when you have real Peruvians running it, it keeps its authenticity. I can't tell you which is my favorite dish, because all of them have made a great impression on me. You must try their causa as an... More
