Atmosphere was very italian. Garlic bread was really great. A little pricey but the food was good. I had the Knocci and enjoyed it.

We were a large group with lots of kids :) Staff was very friendly but it felt like it's More of an intimate quiet atmosphere, not the placw for small noisy kids like ours... :) Food and service were very nice. Large variety, big portions.

First time visiting. Outstanding Italian food. The flavors for unique and complex that seem to change and get even richer in your mouth. Delicately prepared, generous portions, really good service. Best Italian food in Hampton Roads.

Had the seafood cannelloni which was a large portion of stuffed pasta with a load of seafood toppings on top. Choice of sauces from marinara to alfredo. Bread was one of the best ever. Calamari appetizer was also very good.

We stumbled in here on a Friday night without a reservation and were fortunate to be seated. This is an small but elegant restaurant with excellent wait staff and romantic ambiance.

The service was amazing, and the food was mouthwatering! That is definitely a place we would return to on our future trips to Va. Be warned however...I generally avoid the... More

White table cloths and napkins, quiet music playing in the background and delicious food. The servers were friendly and attentive. The artichoke and prosciutto appetizer was excellent as were the entrees. Our server's recommendation for the limoncello mascarpone cake made the meal complete. Although the restaurant was completely full, the food was cooked to perfection and the service never faltered.... More

After church I happened upon Francesco's Restaurant for dinner and was delighted with the food and atmosphere and staff. I enjoyed a very delicious and satisfying dinner. The food/meal was cooked to perfection. I ordered Chicken Francese (lemon chicken with angel hair pasta) and it was the best I ever tasted. Coffee was great also. I highly recommend it.

Thank balunisc
