The food was very good, a four. The venue is small and noisy. The staff was friendly and accomodating. This is not the first time we have eaten there...again too small and the atmosphere is wanting. That takes away from the food quality...see other Italian Restaurants, in the vicinity, with similar menus.

Came to have a birthday celebration dinner with my daughter. The waitress was not attentive. I ordered the chicken piccata with the sauce on the side and asked for a veggie instead of the pasta. She said neither were a problem. Our water glasses were empty many times and we had to find other wait staff to fill our cups.... More

As I am sitting here reading this, I can only laugh. You were very abrasive from the jump when you had to sit and wait for a table due to the high reservation volume that evening. My server has never received complaints like this about her, so I was a little concerned that you complained about her efficiency. She came... More

My family makes it a point to come here on every trip to Williamsburg. It is friendly, cozy, authentic Italian food. You have to look hard for this place because it doesn't look like much from the outside but the food speaks for itself!

Went on a week night. Tried to give us worst table in the restaurant, where the door would hit us, when the restaurant was empty. One other person in the entire place at 6 PM, that should have clued us in. We had to ask for another table. Food was hot, lava molten volcano hot. We had to stare at... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time on 6/29/16 on the recommendation of a trusted friend. The meal, atmosphere, service and attention from the Chef/Owner were beyond compare. It will be my first choice for italian food and top of the list for quality local dining. Check it out soon! Deborah Jane Wells

Our first dinner ever at Francesco's was a pleasant surprise. We were glad to have reserved a table since this small restaurant was full when we arrived early on a Friday evening. The waitress was extremely attentive and took great care of us. Each of the four entrees we ordered was fresh and well-prepared. The portions were generous so two... More

A great place to experience top notch Italian food. Don't miss the garlic bread. Limited seating. Reservations (for parties >2) are recommended. Romantic venue.

This restaurant is located in a strip mall and does not look like much from the outside however, the interior is decorated quite lovely with a very warm and cozy feel to it. The food is out of this world!!!! I had the chicken parmesan which I completely recommend! The five other people in my party had a variety of... More
