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

The different array of ceviche was a delight. The sauces they use, are all non dairy but so creamy. The squid ink risotto was so delicious, without it being fishy. The tres leches dessert was so good, I had to go back and get seconds. The florist next door is so lovely, he was there and helped us order the... More

Almost every restaurant in Miami, Peruvian or not, has ceviche in the menu, but Francesco is the finest I've had the pleasure to have yet. From the presentation of the plates, the fresh tastes and the incredible sauces, Francesco is sure to open your eyes and taste buds to a new and unique understating of Peruvian cuisine. Risotto with shrimp,... More
