My family goes to Francesca's Trattoria a couple of times each year. They serve the best Italian food in Gainesville. Last night we went with some friends and had a great meal. We started with calamari, which was served with a delicious marinara and fresh basil. Yum! For our main courses: I ordered one of the daily specials -- prime... More

We enjoyed everything from veal francaise to lasagna. Warm atmosphere and live entertainment. Great way to celebrate graduation! We will definitely return.

We had our office Christmas dinner here again and were not in the least disappointed. The menu options are plentiful and the food is very well prepared. While I liked our server, the mark of excellence is a water glass that's never empty, for very long!

This is a hard place to review. It has so many wonderful qualities, yet there were a few things that we have to criticize. First, this is a beautifully run restaurant with a great faithful clientele.

Love the jazz music by Nick DeCarlis and friends, makes a great meeting spot with friends to enjoy dinner, wine, music. One of the better italian restaurants in Gainesville I think.

My wife and I go to Francesca's regularly. I don't think we've ever had a meal we didn't like. Good atmosphere, great food! I recommend it highly.

Food was excellent, service perfect. There was relaxing music played by a musical trio. Only drawback is the (expectedly) high prices. But if you want a really excellent meal cooked to perfection with well above average service, this is a great place.

Good soup, good rolls, and other food very good as well. The staff is very accommodating. We've always had a positive experience there. The menu has many choices. You can't go wrong.
