We happened on this place by accident while looking for another restaurant. We had the best pizza we have ever had, anywhere, at Francesco's. It is a quaint little place, and we picked up a few Italian grocery items while there as well!

Francesco's is a cozy little Italian Diner tucked away in a shopping center on Estero Blvd. on Fort Myers Beach, FL. This quaint little eatery has, without a doubt, the most authentic & delicious Stromboli & Calzone on the beach!!! Frank, the owner of Francesco's, takes great pride in serving only the best! I had the pepperoni and cheese calzone... More

The pizza was disappointing for anyone who is expecting a NY style pizza. The crust looked and tasted as if it were pre-made. Also there are NO prices on the printed menus.

My family and I vacation in Fort Myers Florida every year and every year we eat at this lovely, delicious, quant little Italian deli and pizza place.

The food was good, but a bit expensive for basic sandwiches. We met the owner and he was a great, friendly guy. The ice cream is AMAZING.

We did take out. I had the gluten free pizza. It was awesome topping artichokes, sundried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. However while they offer gluten free which I appreciate but they were not conscience of cross contamination. I broke out slightly after this meal. Wait was long and no credit cards. Cute homey atmosphere but not sure about freshness.

This place was a hidden surprise! Tucked back in the Santini Plaza on Estero Island, this is a small shop with a big menu. It's got a few tables and a deli atmosphere, but boy is the food good!!! We had some of the best pizza and canolli we've had in years. Everything is homemade and tastes fabulous. Loved it... More

After walking in and seeing all the Italian items and smelling the good smells we had high expecations for our pizza. Unfortunately it did not live up to them. The crust was undercooked, the pizza was exceptionally greasy and unremarkable. The only good thing was the fresh tomato sause. Try another place for pizza.

Please please never go here... You will thank me later. We tried to order food (from the menu) And they said we can't. They don't even sell 50% of the stuff on the menu. It's a scam. Many negative signs... No credit cards, don't touch, no requests, no bathrooms,no, no, no.... Frankly, I am shocked that this place is still... More

This place is very small and tucked inside a strip mall. Upon entering the deli I was not impressed with the visual appearance of the place. However, "the heat 'em & eat 'em" dinners were outstanding. The ravioli was hand-made. The stuffing was delicious meat or cheese. The sauce was as good as my Italian grandmother made. Dinners come with... More
