“Good Food. Nice People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

After reading the reviews for Francesco's, we had to try and we weren't disappointed.

Great food, great prices and great service. These three combinations are more difficult to find than I imagined in a city like WB.

WELL DONE FRANCESCO'S!

“Too much cologne!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

The heavy application of cologne by the host ( maitre d ? ) detracted from the aromas and taste of the food . This restaurant is a gem, and serves food that should be allowed to be appreciated fully.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

My husband and I had a weekend getaway in Williamsburg, and of course, we consulted Trip Advisor before dining. This restaurant is adorable. Yes, it small and located in a strip mall, but it is charming -- decorated with family pictures of the owner/operator, Francesco. If you are looking for a romantic atmosphere, this is not your place; however, I would not want it to be any different.

The bread, salad dressing, and pasta are all home made. The bread looks like any other garlic bread, but OH MY GOD!!! It was delicious. I had the seafood cannelloni with the pink sauce. It was rich and packed with seafood. We took dessert home with us. The cannoli was perfect! Sometimes cannoli is so sweet it makes your teeth hurt, but this was perfectly sweet and divine.

Just had a good experience at Francesco's. Great pasta, with care to details. Nice set up, you can forget where you are. Service was very efficient as well.
