Delightful! Great food, great service, great ambiance! A 10 out of 10!

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.

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.

The food here is always tasty. The staff are always pleasant. The prices are more than fair. The early bird specials are always delicious, with no cutback on serving size. With the early bird, comes a small cannoli, you can die for. Though I've never tried their Tuesday pasta night specials, I've heard rave reviews. Francesca's is definitely worth a... More

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.
