This is an excellent family run restaurant. We all had the Martha Vineyard Salad, 3 of us had the Veal Parm and one of us had the Chicken Parm. Everything was very well prepared and tasted excellent. Good sized portions. For the tourists reading this - This is a restaurant the locals go to. Give it a try you will... More

Small family style restaurant which does not take reservations. Since we waited until near the end of season we had no wait for a table. There are two tables out front and you could sit outside if you wanted to but then you are looking at the parking lot. Also the evening we were there there had been some resurfacing... More

Met with family who had already been in Sarasota on a business trip. They had found this establishment earlier in the week. They were willing to go back a second time in a week. It is small, but cozy, not noisy. Authentic italian.... One of us had the pasta aioli and the other two shared a multi topping large pizza.... More

Since I'm from NewYork I had to try this New York pizzeria.The best pizza available in Sarasota.The restaurant is small with a friendly staff, fresh food and big portions. The cannoli that comes as dessert with the early bird special was compatible to a New York cannoli.

I'm almost afraid to share my review, since this is such a small place and one of our favorites! Good homemade Italian food, friendly service, reasonable prices and an unassuming atmosphere makes this a delightful place to eat. The only reason I didn't give the top rating was that they do not take reservations. The restaurant is not large, but... More

If you have ever visited a good New York City neighborhood Italian restaurant, then you will be very happy with Francesco's. The food was well-prepared, the portions are gigantic, and the staff is very friendly, and actually speak Italian among themselves. To add to the atmosphere, there is authentic Italian music playing in the background. Mangia!

Small, cozy restaurant at Webber and Beneva. When you walk in, you notice the attractive decor, cleanliness, and welcoming staff. The menu is substantial and there is something for everyone. You immediately take in the wonderful smell of delightful, delicious marinara sauce. Someone at the next table ordered a pizza and it was hard not to grab a steaming slice... More

Francesca is a no frills restaurant that serves up good pizza and average pasta. They do not take reservations. I had their penne fra diavalo with meatballs & mushrooms. They had run out of rigatoni and substituted the penne which was fine.The pasta was cooked al dente and the meatballs were tasty. Unfortunately they immersed all the ingredients in a... More

Pizza was outstanding. Amazing sauce! There was a wait, which was worth it. I would recommend carry out if you have littler ones.
