We had dinner on 8/15. Great service an attentive wait staff. We had the pasta sampler, ravioli and a pizza to go. Salad was average. The bread was fresh and hot. I like the pasta sampler, I get a small amount of the best pasta that is just enough. Ravioli were great as from an expert. Need to enjoy your... More

OK, we veered away from pasta and had the steaks but they were delicious! Covered with spinach, cannellini beans and fresh tomatoes. The service is excellent and extremely helpful at all time. Very good bread rolls to go with the meal. Salad was crisp, fresh and ice cold! Worth a stop when in Marble Falls.

Wife and I went here she really liked it. I'm fussier, food was good but far from the best I ever had. I liked to be wowed at a restaurant - this place didn't wow me but it was still good.

We have always had a good meal here. For a small town version of Italian food, it's pretty good. Prices are very reasonable, $10- $16 per plate. I enjoy all the pasta dishes; I've never tried the pizza but I think of that as a "fast food" option and would rather have something more interesting when dining out. Service has... More

Our family of four visited on a busy Sunday night and enjoyed the large variety of items on the menu to please vegetarians and meat eaters alike. The ricotta ravioli was creamy in a nice tomato sauce. Garlic bread was a hit, as was the veggie pizza with a nice crisp crust and fresh toppings. Tiramisu and a lemoncello marscapone... More

Great menu - these people know how to cook veal to perfection. Home made bread - bring your own bottle of wine - that saves a lot of $$$$$ but prices are very moderate. Specials are very good and the Osso Buco is outstanding when they have it. Service can't be beat. We eat here at least twice a month.

I had passed this restaurant many times before someone asked us to meet them there. Never went in because it was in a strip mall and didn't look like anything special. Boy was I wrong. They have GREAT italian food. The Alfredo sauce was incredible.

Wife and I had late lunch here on Saturday. Had side salads to start. Usual iceberg concoction with a single small tomato wedge for $2.99..hmmm. Ordered margherita pizza with sausage. Pretty good but it was covered with thin slices of raw tomatoes. Have never seen a margherita pizza done that way. Not bad after getting over those visual and textural... More

I eat at Francesco's frequently both by myself and with others. The rolls are delicious, the salads are crisp and fresh, the pizza has a thin crust and quality toppings and the specials always include a fish entree which has never disappointed. Many wine clubs have their dinner meetings here since they do not serve alcohol you are allowed to... More
