In the authentic Italian tradition, we select our simple, whole ingredients and combine them by hand with heart, using the time-honored method of open flame cooking. We utilize the intense heat of our wood burning ovens to lend unique flavor to our food. From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.

Don't Order Take Out

The food and atmosphere is very good if not a little too pretentious. We are boycotting because we ordered take out and waited the prescribed 30 minutes. When we arrived to pick up the pizza we ordered we had to cool our heels while we watched eat in diners get their orders even many that came in... read more

Great food and attentive service make a nice combination. The Mussels appetizer was outstanding and the lasagna, veal parmesan, pasta and clams, and, of course, the Pizza Italiana made for a memorable dining experience. We made a second visit there before we could post a review of our first visit, this time to hear the opera singers who are featured... More

Had the pork chop special. Sounded good. Well I stated eating it and then realized it wasn't cooked all of the way. The waiter took it back. Told him I didn't want it back or a new one.$28 for a meal that wasn't cooked and they didn't take it off the bill. The owner/ cook said you can have a... More

We always have a fab meal here. I love it for the gluten free options. This time it was gluten free pasta and clams. Portions are large so you can share or take it home for leftovers.

From the waiter who saw us coming to the door and kept it open, to the servers who worked as a team to make sure everything was to our liking. Great service, great pizza and overall really nice dining experience. Don't blink too fast or you'll miss it on 17-92.

I went to Francescos for 1st time on March 8 with a post wedding group. This place is fabulous and believe me, I am picky and honest. First off, the food was delicious; everything from the pizza to the veal parm, chopped salad and pasta dishes. Their prices are so reasonable and the amount of food you get is enough... More

Food remains top quality and delicious. It takes a lot for us to remain loyal to a restaurant. We are so glad it is here in the Orlando area. We come for the weekday lunch (excellent value) in the brilliantly designed space. There are people here of all ages -- business lunches, families, couples young and old. There are people... More
