Decent and affordable Italian

It's not too easy to find affordable Italian food on the island but Francesco's is pretty good. The sauces have a bit of a kick to them which makes the food more interesting. I think I would definitely go again, but maybe I would order delivery.

We ordered some pizzas for delivery our first night on vacation. I expected an "okay" pizza being that we were not from the area and called the first place on the list the hotel gave us. I was very pleasantly surprised! The owners were SO nice and the pizza was some of the best I've ever had. My middle daughter... More

What a great find. I went here with my best friend while on vacation. The owner was very pleasant and we got to watch him making the red sauce from scratch. I had a delicious Italian sub, my friend a pepperoni calzone and I ordered an eggplant & spinach calzone to go for my husband. All were amazing!

We stumbled across this place, as it was tucked back in a shopping plaza. We called them for a pizza late one night, to find out they were about to close. The lady was so nice, she said since the oven was still hot she would make us a pizza! It was such a great pizza! We went back a... More

Thin crust pizza was excellent, along with the garlic knots and breadsticks. Owners were very nice, shouldn't have waited so long to try this place!

I really dislike writing a negative review, but I was very disappointed in out last visit. When coming to FMB it's great to grab a pizza and hang in for an evening. This was always the go to. Unfortunately, the last time we went the pizza dough was under done, the cheese was barely melted, the wings were soggy, the... More

Just arrived in Fort Myers Beach for an extended stay. Read the prior reviews and were not expecting too much. Went in the afternoon to pick up a to go menu...and met a young woman busy texting at the door. I asked about a to go menu and she pointed her finger to the counter. Hey, she was busy texting!...

Hmmm...we find it interesting that you "were not expecting too much", yet nonetheless ordered our most expensive pizza. Then, you state, "both of us felt ill the next day," yet you, "tried it again." If it were us, we would have contacted the establishment to voice our concerns; I am sure the owner would have addressed your problem. But, considering,... More
