I lived in Italy for eleven years and rarely find that Italian cooking elsewhere is up to the mark. San Francesco really is! The friendly proprieter clearly cares about food, service and his customers - he enthused about waking up early to get the best fresh produce. Excellent frittura misto and risotto - good sized portions, too!

My sister and I went on a quiet night and received excellent service. I ordered the seafood linguine which was nice. The restaurant was a little difficult to find because it's located 2 stairways away from the Main Street.

The food was average nothing special, apart from the seafood salad which came warm and was interesting. The pasta was also good too, well cooked and al dente as it's meant to be. The thing that really let this restaurant down was the owner. We felt a bit rushed with our meal. Even though the restaurant closes at midnight the... More

This restaurant is not in one of the crowded streets in Dubrovnik, but in a cute little street with stairs ; there is not a lot of tables outside but we were lucky enough to have one. The owner is very welcoming and passionate. The night we came, a chef from Rome tried his menu on us and it was... More

Situated just off Prijeko with a lovely atmosphere. Great service with a very attentive waiter with good food and wine recommendations - and complimentary bruschetta! The food was nice, if a little simple, but at an extremely reasonable price there is very little argue with.

This restaurant was my favourite meals in Croatia. Admittedly it was not our first choice to eat at but the others all had long lines and Bistro San Francesco was close to our apartment so we decided to give it a try. What a great meal it was. I ordered mussells buzara and my partner the seafood linguine. Both were... More

The fish in Croatia is fantastic but one cannot live on fish alone. One must indulge with a great plate of Rigatoni with Louis Prima playing in the background. My mother from Bologna would be proud!

We went there the first day but it was closed, probably we were too early. We tried again for the second day and it was opened, we were glad we tried again! The food was amazing, it was our best meal in Dubrovnik. It wasn't as expensive as other meals we had and it was better! Appetizer, we ordered the... More
