My first visit to Francesco's

We were looking for something we haven't been to near her and decided on Francesco's. When we walked in there were several people waiting. I walked on through to see if I can get my name on a list. There was nobody at that position so I asked a server which she pointed toward the empty postion... read more

We live just down the street from Francesco's. It is a solid family Italian place. We can take the kids there or go for a casual date night. Service is always wonderful and the food is made to order and fresh. If you like Italian this is a good bet!

Went to Francesco's for the first time last week and it was delicious. Everything was well prepared and the service was excellent. We dined at 8:30 pm and so we had no trouble getting a table. During season, plan on a long wait. The geezers and snowbirds swamp the place starting at 4:30pm but clear out by their 8pm bedtime.... More

I'm reluctant to give Francesco's the great review it deserves because the seating capacity is so small that I might never get in again. Pizza is awesome in flavor, generosity of toppings, and crust. Perfect! All of the Italian dishes are excellent. From standard spaghetti and meatballs to specials every night, none are just ordinary. Most of the pricing is... More

A nice change from the touristy restaurants on Siesta Key. Cozy with a great wait staff. Many nights a special such as make your own pasta for 9.99. Pizza is awesome, skinny and juicy.

My husband and I frequently go to Francesco's and order takeout. The food is consistently excellent, and the waitstaff is very friendly, even when they are busy. It's a small, cozy neighborhood restaurant, but they have an extensive menu and warm atmosphere. Their pizza is great too! Highly recommend this gem.

Francesco's is an intimate little restaurant that serves well prepared Italian food. We have visited several times and the first time it was a bit difficult to find. It is in a small strip mall on the SE corner of Webber and Beneva. We always enjoy our visits to Francesco's and have returned multiple times. On our recent visit the... More

This restaurant/pizzeria won the Pizza Wars here in Sarasota last year and they really deserved winning. We have been going to Francesco for 13 years now, we live in Sarasota all year round, they use quality ingredients, seasonings and the service usually is wonderful but in season there is a wait. . . However, it's worth the wait and their... More
