Great pizza

The pizza was excellent. Items on the pizza seemed like they were just picked from the garden. Service was good with average prices.

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

Decent pizza but not anywhere near worth the price. I purchased 2 1-Topping pizzas and the bill was $41. If I'm going to pay that much it better be something extravagant and not just pepperoni.

Perhaps you are confused with the pizzeria you ordered from?...two one-topping large pizzas at Francesco's will cost $38, tax included. (These prices are competitive with if not lesser than other independent pizzerias in the area.) Arrivederci! More

Used to stop in several times on every trip to Ft Myers Beach. NEVER again. Almost every time I have went, have been given a hard time by who I assume is the daughter of the owner. Barely spoke to us, smart remarks to our questions. (There were several unmarked loaves of bread on counter. Asked her what kind they... More

We are definitely displeased that you did not enjoy your experience. However, we are troubled with several inconsistent statements. First, we noticed that you rated our food as terrible despite no mention of eating anything. (On your last visit you stated that our "meatball sub is a must!" and the "pizza and deli are very good.") Second, the owner's daughter... More

Just like the North End in Boston. Small little place but great homemade pizza, $5 subs and Royal Scoop ice cream. What more could you ask for.

We went with friends for their ice cream after dinner. I tried their black cherry gelato...yummy. The second time we were there we met some friends who were eating pizza. They said that it was their favorite place for pizza. Both times we were there they had a lot of customers who came for take out and some ate outside.... More

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
