Great local pizza take out

Went there twice in Feb 2015 with friends and enjoyed the delicious, home made pizzas with various toppings - crust is thin and home made. Reasonable prices. You can smell the aromas if you walk the length of Santini Plaza - its worth it when you're tired of seafood! Bensons of Newmarket

We have gone to Francesco's for two different occasions. We picked up some sandwiches one time and then wanted to order a home made Italian pizza. We placed the order for the pizza with one topping and it came to approximately $19.00. We thought that was slightly expensive but worth it for home made. We had the pizza delivered and... More

Had a very good hot sandwich for lunch one day (pepper & egg). Also tried pastries which are delicious , the fresh mozzarella, and a pasta dinner entree which could be customized with choice of sauce. We only took carry out so can't comment on the dine-in option. Service was friendly but can be slow when it's crowded. Good selection... More

What can I say... great pizza, AMAZING desserts, very cordial and helpful staff. A little pricy, but you get what you pay for. The food was hot and fresh, and while we waited we had a wonderful chat with one of the "locals"...

I cannot recommend a pizza restaurant that services pizza dough that tastes remarkably like the frozen boxed type. I'm not sure how anyone can give this pizza 5 stars. Terrible pizza. I would not return.

Great classic pizza. Thin crust is delicious. They deliver on the south end of the island. Great end to a relaxing day on the beach!

Sandwiches were excellent, starting with the bread, (wonderful) and including the meats, cheeses, veg and dressing. All very fresh and flavorful. Desserts were fresh and homemade and very tasty. Can't remember the names of the desserts, we tried 3 and would recommend all of them. Staff very friendly, helpful . Seating area is small, but there are picnic tables outside.
