This is the cutest little Italian I have come across in a little while, staff are lovely and make me always feel at home. Every dish I have had had been delicious.

We chanced upon this quaint little restaurant while driving around Greater london.. The service was extraordinary and the food was just really really good.. We were 6 of us and ordered only vegetarian.. The pesto sauce in the pasta, the quality of pasta, the chocolate dessert and the tiramisu were to die for! We liked every single dish and the... More

We have been meaning to try this place for ages and finally got around to it. Overall we had a pretty good experience. The food is reasonably priced, and I would say that some of the ingredients might be a little compromised to make that work, but the flavours were enjoyable and it felt pretty Italian. The atmosphere was upbeat... More

Lots of rave reviews but I'm afraid we can't agree - frozen food...staff lovely and attentive but taking orders for main course just as your starter comes out probably isn't the best! Not our cup of tea but as some of the other reviews have said - it's marmite!

My family have been living in Tring for years and for some reason have never tried this place. We decided to go last night and it was fantastic. Everyone ordered something different and it was clean plates all round. Desserts too! The atmosphere inside is lovely too. Warm and friendly to match the host and hostess. When we got home... More

Found this little gem after a day at Champneys. It was a little piece of Italy. The food and atmosphere were lovely and we only wished we lived closer.

We visited with friends and this little Italian restaurant is great for its ambiance and its entertaining, friendly owners. Food was OK although I thought that the salad could have been served separately as it got a bit swamped in the sauce of the main dish. Reasonably priced - I'd go back for the atmosphere alone.

Dined at Francesco's on Saturday night, this was our first visit, the restaurant has a lovely authentic ambiance of an italian restaurant, it was perfect we had booked a table. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from Amarosa, comprehensive menu, with lots of choices for pizza, pasta, steaks and italian dishes. Husband had the cannelloni, which was just... More
