“Excellent food, nice owners.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was our second time dining at this restaurant. I have dreamt about the gnocchi with taleggio cheese and balsamic since the first time we ate there and knew when I returned to Gavinana that I had to eat at Franceschi again. They did not disappoint. We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their food. We will definitely return next time we are in Italy. It is worth the 4,000 mile trip!
