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.

Everything was great

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.

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.

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

Absolutely incredible! My family of 5 had a wonderful experience; truly authentic food. Not only the best pizza in Orlando but probably the best lasagna I have ever had in my life! (Ssshhh, don't tell my Grandmother). Not to mention the Italian Wedding Cake was phenomenal! Our waitress Carrie, was very sweet and provided excellent service. My family and I... More

This was one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. We enjoyed a lovely night before V-day dinner and was treated to an amazing restaurant experience. Loved it! Bragged to about 20 people how good it was. Particularly the best thing was the service and the Veal Sicilian, the veal literally melted in my mouth. I wouldn't... More

I'm a hardcore NY cheese pizza lover usually, but when I crave to gourmet I go to Francescos for this specific pizza; Campagnola. It's not cheap. About $20 for one large eggplant with fresh basil, but it's soooo good.
