I grew up on Italian food and lived many years in Italy. Very Good food here. Not excellent, but really really good.

I suprised my husband for our anniversary by traveling to Frankfort for a mini staycation. The food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful. The location surrounding Francesa was very beautiful setting the tone for us as we were walking into the restaturant. We had a great time and enjoyed the ambiance and food tremendously. Definitely recommended!

My husband and I eat at Francesca's Fortunato frequently and always get a great meal. They have excellent gluten free options that taste delicious. It is a very nice environment. The main room can get loud sometimes but they have two side rooms that are quieter plus outdoor seating. We enjoy excellent bar options too.

We have been here several times for lunch and dinner, as it is very convenient. The food, while not exceptional, is certainly good, and a descent value for the money. The biggest problem is the level of noise, so don't expect to have any real conversations with your companions. This is only true, however, if you eat inside. The patio,... More

I have eaten here before, but we had an exceptional dinner on Monday evening. Five out six of us loved our entrees. I had Trout-D (Not sure what the D stands for, but that is how it was printed on the receipt.) and it was extremely tasty. Others had the Salmon Fresca-D, pizza, Pasta Sugo Gameri-D, and Sottobosco (this was... More

The food was very good. Sea Bass was the special and we enjoyed it. But the waiter just wanted to serve us as fast as possible. We were not finished with our salads when the main entrees came - that's just not good. Wine list was good though. Major disappointment was to see men wearing baseball style caps in the... More

I was recently here for a lunch meeting. At first the waiter was very attentive-2 of the people were still not there, and when we said we were waiting for others seemed like he disappeared for a long time. Had the scallop special which was good and arrived quickly by the server, but waiter still was scarce. At the time... More

Good food selection with a menu changing regularly and daily specials. The pizza is not too big (personal pizza) but tastes great! The entrees and salads are great too! Nice outdoor seating to enjoy the nice weather or the live music coming from the Frankfort stage. I guess we'll come back on a regular basis :)

Serving freshly made Italian food, I've never been disappointed with the service or food at Francesca's in downtown Frankfort. Street parking or in the lot across the street - free. There's limited outside seating in the back courtyard. Dining inside, in the evening, is very noisey, hence the lower rating. For this reason, I prefer frequenting Francesca's mid-day when it's...
