We really don't want to make this gem of an Italian restaurant any more popular than it is already. This is the best eat in or take out pizza in the area. Never disappointing - it may be a little more expensive than your basic take-out or chain pizza, but it is well worth the difference. Also love dining in... More

This is only our third visit to the newer location. We loved the previous site with it being small and felt like family. As we walked in, lots of glassware fell near the takeout counter and glass everwhere so we were shown to a small square table for 4 in the front room. Our server took a few minutes to... More

Nice place for an Italian meal. On the small side but great atmosphere. Service was very good. We all enjoyed our meals. The cannoli and tiramisu were both excellent!

We were on vacation and picked up pizza from here based on reviews. The pizza is excellent and we were tempted to get it a second night. My side had pepperoni and was incredible, but my wife's side had tomatoes and was not as flavorful, but still very good.

Looking for somewhere to eat on Sunday we found this place on Tripadvisor. We had a really nice meal - the pasta and pizza was excellent and the service was great. Good value and worth hunting out as it is a bit away from the main part of town.

You can't go wrong here for the food. My wife and I ate here for the first time based upon a friend's recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. I judge Italian restaurants by the "gravy" and it turned to be very good. Meatballs and shells were perfect. The service was a bit hectic but apparently they were short staffed. I high... More

We arrived in Siesta key for spring break and after a long and grueling drive were in the mood for a good pizza. We found exactly that here! The space is small and right after we arrived around 5:00 the restaurant started filling up. The salad was fresh and tasty and the pizzas large and made just the way a... More

Our family found Francesco's last summer. We have now been there 5 times in 3 visits to Sarasota. We have Italians in our family so we are picky. We love Francesco's. the Italian waitress (owner) is awesome and the food is excellent. We have had a little bit if everything. If you like great Italian food for a great price,... More
