Great Place!

Stopped here after a winery tour with friends. We were impressed by the place and the menu. The choices were great and once the food came out it was delicious. It is a BYOB and has a very reasonable menu. A must try in the area...

This is a pleasent resturant with a traditional italian style, the food is great and tasty- it is traditional, not hipster Italian, perfect for real Italians to enjoy. The atmosphere is nice, not overly fancy, but not a pizza parlor either. BYOB which I prefer, buy a nice chianti for 15 bucks and enjoy yourself.

This is our first time here. Went for a late lunch and small meal. We ordered a Tri color salad and a grilled chicken Cesar wrap. Since we were the only ones here. We thought the kitchen would be quicker. I guess at lunch they do not serve bread. When lunch arrived, dressing was on the Tri color salad when... More

We went to eat here in a small group. The food was good to very good. When you arrive in the small entrance there is a strong smell of garlic. One very down side to me was that the restaurant is very loud and it is difficult to have a conversation at your table. Servive was very good and all... More

We were at Villa Francesca Last night. It was not our first time although we've never been impressed very much with their food. Our friends like it, and so we went. The service is very good, but there meat is of such poor quality that they have to put all kinds of sauces on it to make it edible. We... More

Recently, my wife and I met friends for dinner at Villa Francesco's. I've passed the restaurant many times while in the area and never thought much about visiting. Our friends had been there several times and suggested we give it a try. The sweet smell of garlic surrounds you as you enter the small entryway. There's a main dining area... More

I have stopped into Villa Francesco's about once a month for the past few years for a slice or two of pizza for dinner. I prefer vegetarian pizza, and I have tried a variety of the combinations they sell by the slice in the take-out section of the restaurant. I have found the pizza here to be consistently excellent, among... More

I was here for a casual business lunch during the week. The food was good but we were squeezed in a back room that was packed and very loud. It was hard to have a conversation and even hear the waitstaff.

Attentive service, BYOB, ice buckets provided. Comfortably casual sit-down dining, simple decor. No fancy plating; it's just good reliable Italian food. Bread plate and olive oil complementary.Table cloths. Tables nicely spaced. Back room a little more private than front room. No kiddies there our night (there are quicker/cheaper options nearby for them). Chairs are comfortable, sturdy, without arms and can... More
