Always delighted to have lunch or dinner at Villa Francesco's

Consistently exceptional Italian Cuisine - some great homemade pastas. This restaurant never disspoints and well worth ordering the homemade pastas such as Parpadelle with our without shrimp or chicken.

Villa Francesco's was the perfect place to have lunch with a group of co-workers. The restaurant was relatively small, nicely decorated but intimate enough that everyone could sit at a long table and hear each other. The other tables in the venue were spaced appropriately so one could not hear what was going on at the next tables. The food... More

Very good food and service. Just a little annoying that you can hear the cooks talking very loudly. Other than that it was a good experience. I recommend the Bronzino fish dish. My favorite

As the author of "Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous!" I am always looking for healthy options. I lost 125 pounds and look for eateries that serve healthy choices. Perhaps this may be absurd to find it in an Italian restaurant, which is known for heavy sauces and cheeses...far from healthy! The place has good entrees. The eggplant parmigiana was great. It...

Villa Francesco's is in a odd location right off of Route 31 North but set back. It's also beside the Pennington Post office. They have a fancy sit down restaurant in addition to the small dining area for takeout. All pizza's have a nice crust and some of the toppings are good. Service is nice which is a huge bonus...

My husband and I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. The seafood is very good which is a nice surprise for a small restaurant far from the sea. One of the reviews below must be for a different restaurant because if you sit outside the only thing you will enjoy is the view of... More

I was surprised by my friends for a special dinner nite out. We came to the Villa to celebrate my 52nd birthday. What an amazing restaurant. Decor was beautiful and tastefully done. Looks like Tuscany country side. I was thrilled to see reasonably priced delicious food. BYOB is nice. Filet mignon was fork tender. I got papardella gypsy, Pasta dish... More

They have a few outdoor tables with a view of the river, although it's near the road so can be a bit noisy. Insid is small, but cozy. The menu is limited, but everything is good.

We visit this restaurant at least three times a month and have always had a meal cooked to perfection. The portions are generous. The meals are consistently cooked to perfection. The sauces are very tasty. But the soup of the day is a real treat. I always have the soup of the day.

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...
