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

Francesco's is a small restaurant and it was very crowded the Friday night our group went to dinner. It is clearly a popular local place! The service was friendly if not a little hectic. Our entrees of eggplant parmesan, shrimp salad, calzone and chicken parmesan were fairly typical, but well done and tasty.

Last year I tried this restaurant for take-out pizza, and was impressed with the place and the product. When I visited Sarasota last month I persuaded my companions to try it, and despite the hard-to-please attitude that many persons have about their pizza, they became believers, as well. The freshness of the ingredients can be noticed, and if you grew... More

We have gotten their pizza for years. It's a toss up with Francescos and Demetrios for us. But we went for dinner and got veal marsale and it was great and worth the 30 minute wait. The place is small and a wait in season so we decided to stop telling anyone about this gem !!

You make it your way. The pizza is the best. Actually I have yet to get a bad meal there. The service is superb. If you... More

My family and I went to this little establishment after reading about the Italian fare for reasonable price in the Herald Tribune Dining Guide. We love italian cuisine and were willing to drive quite a bit (from Venice) for supper. My husband had the spagetti with meatballs and I the baked ziti and both were generous sized portions with good... More
