Overall an excellent value, and very good food. Lunch special of salad + eggplant parmesan + spaghetti was not only excellent but a great, great value. I was especially happy that the tomato sauce had some bite, and wasn't too sweet. The raviola gennaio from the a la carte menu was very good-to-excellent, one star off here only because the... More

We went to Francesco's based on the prior reviews on TripAdvisor. We went for the fiancé's birthday. We came in around 5pm, it was empty and kind of skiddish because no customers were there. They had Frank Sinatra playing over the speakers. We were greeted with a wonderful server and she was most helpful with picking out dinners based on... More

We were recommended to try this restaurant by our hosts in VA who dine there regularly. And it was every bit as good as they said. We went for lunch and the straightforward pasta with meat was utterly delicious. Between the three of us we also had the lasagne and chicken with linguine with a nice mixed salad. The table... More

Our friends took us here during our stayi in Williamsburg and the food was excellent. I've been to America about 8 times and I can honestly say I enjoyed the meal here more than any other. The lobster ravioli was really tasty and so was the bruschetta starter. The service was friendly, helpful and polite. Well worth a visit.

I have just returned from a delightful meal out. I do not like spicy food or cheese so have problems in a lot of restaurants. I was pleased to find a most delicious lobster ravioli. My husband also enjoyed his seafood canneloni. We had visited here several years ago and are really pleased that the restaurant is still giving great... More

On our very first evening in Williamsburg we ate here. We started our meal with the mozzarella caprice. The tomatoes were so fresh and tasty. The garlic bread is the best we ever had! I had the lobster ravioli and my husband had seafood cannelloni. Pasta was fresh and sauce was very good. The tarramusu was so good and not... More

My husband and I are locals and had eaten here once before several years ago. Sorry we waited so long to return! After looking over the menu I mentioned to our waitress that I wished they had a favorite dish of mine...Veal Monte Carlo (veal topped with eggplant, mozzarella, and roasted peppers in a light wine sauce). She said the... More

My husband started with the mussels which were very flavorful but they were a little overcooked. I had the fried calamari to start which was delicious! Our main courses, my husband had the manicotti with a side of the house meatballs. He really enjoyed his dish but he didn't like the house meatballs. I had the tortellini Bolognese. Very heavy!...

Francesco's was quite awesome. I looked at my options on Trip Advisor and my daughter and I decided to try out this italian restaurant. It was very quiet on a Wednesday night and there was only one waiter present. However, he paid very close attention to us and ensured we got all we needed. The food was sooo awesome. I... More
