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

I cannot believe this place has so many great reviews. That was the main reason we tried it. Extremely disappointed. Our party of 4 arrived at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday night. It's a very small place and was 1/2 empty. No other customers arrived for dinner after us (which was quite surprising ) and we basically closed the place when... More

I'm from NY and I love this place. Its very good, pretty authentic southern Italian food. Their sauce is excellent. Pizza is pretty good...it could have been a lot crisper (although in fairness this last time I had the food delivered...but still). I visit Sarasota every year and always try to hit Francesco's since its very good and nearby. I'd... More

I thought the food , the service and the price were exceptional and then the topper was our server, Enus. She made our experience exemplary and great fun.

Small, in a shopping center. Decent Italian cuisine that fits the bill for locals. Good to meet friends & chat. Food was pretty good, Pasta sauce was good. Portions reasonably large.

The pizza was the best I've had in Sarasota, the service was great and the price was very good too. I'll definitely go back.

After many years if searching for America's Worst Waitress, we have finally found her. She works at Francesco's, a humble store-front restaurant in Sarasota. She didn't secure this coveted title without competition, but her rudeness won the day. We went to Francesco's because of some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, but learned that you can't always believe what you read.... More

Francesco's is a hidden neighborhood gem, MY neighborhood gem. I am so happy they are staying true to themselves by staying in this tiny strip mall on the corner of Beneva and Webber; please don't franchise, Francesco's! We arrived early on a stormy Friday night and would you believe they were busy at 5:30pm?? Well of course they were: they... More

Had a nice experience at Francesco's with mother and sister. Service was very attentive and friendly. Probably quite crowded in season, but we didn't have a wait this time of year even though it is a small, intimate dining area. Will definitely return. The baked ziti Francesco was wonderful as was the spaghetti and meatballs. The Italian sub was also... More

After reading reviews called a pizza in to take out. Ordered the margarita. The crust was soggy and very little tomato. Lots of cheese and the basil was a series of " streams"...interesting but not effective. On the positive the pizza was ready exactly when I was told it would be ready. But think I will try another place.
