I have been going to Francesco's for a long time but the dinners just keep getting better...I had Chicken Toscano the other evening and it was superb. They also make the Tascano dish with veal and I can't wait to try it. The dish was delicious and huge. I am a big eater but I took nearly half home for... More

Hidden in a little plaza it's one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota and arguably the best Italian food in this town. Wide variety of dishes offered, beer and wine available and also take out for pizza and other menu items. Great service and very reasonable prices.

This place is better than what grandma cooks. Excellent Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan -- this place puts all the chains to shame. Save room for dessert. Homemade tiramisu- the bottom layer is saturated and oozing with coffee when you sink your spoon into the cake. Also- be sure to sit in JUSTINs section (or ask for him). He will... More

My wife and I had a craving for Pasta and we were close to Francesco's.....and were pleased with their pizza...so we said let's try them for dinner. While I had linguine and meat balls, and was happy with the dish....my wife hit a home run with the Special Ziti.....a huge bowl overflowing with ziti, delicious meat sauce, ricotta cheese, and...

Loved the food, the atmosphere and of course company. Went with hubby and close friend for dinner and it was so fabulous, for a minute I thought I was back home in NYC in the East Village. I had Shrimp Fra Daivlo and hubby had Chicken Piccata.. he had nothing left on his plate.. i had a small amount to... More

Use to be one of our favorites but since they moved next door food quality and service has gone way downhill. After waiting 45 minutes to get our food, and it still didn't come, we got up to walk out. We left money for our drinks and bread. The waitress, who identified herself as a manager, started to yell at... More

The food is very good and the open kitchen lets you see how your food is prepared. I've always liked their veal cutlet sandwiches and their pizza. However, the staff often seems clueless. Example: I walk in and try to place a to-go order, and one staff manager starts yelling at the staff member who's taking my order, about "not... More

Being a Pizzeria/Restaurant owner for almost 30years myself I must say that the Pizza we picked up tonight was really good. I cannot review the other pasta and main dishes yet, but since the service and the very friendly employees made us feel very welcome we will give them a try as well. We definately go back, something I cannot... More

Ate here with a family member in the mood for pizza, who got a European-style individual Margarita Pizza, which was quite good (I tasted), made to order (so took a few minutes). I got veal parmigiana and was offered a choice of pastas. I got linguini and was told all the choices were the same flour, etc. They had angel... More

Sarasota's best Italian restaurant & Pizzeria. As soon as you walk in the aromas will bring you back to Sunday dinners at Nonna's house. Serving the best food for over 10 years. Voted Best Pizza and Best Speciality Pizza. Serving thin crust hand tossed NY style pizza. Excellent chicken, veal & seafood dishes. Extensive list of Salads and vegetarian options. Famous bruschetta appetizer like no other. Homemade sinful creamy tiramisu. Cozy, casual atmosphere.
