My wife and I visited the caves with a friend and ate at this restaurant. The service was prompt, friendly and courteous and we ate outside under the covered terrace overlooking the wooded hillside. My wife and I chose the 16 euro tourist menu comprising bruschetta (bread which was very light drizzled with EV Olive oil -albeit a little lacking in garlic, a pasta dish and a main.My friend chose the burger and fries menu which he reported as very good and looked home made although this does not come with drinks etc but as our tourist menu included large bottles we could easily share between 3. THe bruschetta was followed by two types of pasta served on the same plate. The star of the whole meal for me was the pappardelle al cinghiale (wild boar) which had an ample amount of small pieces of meat in the sauce which differed from the usual mince in a ragu. The tagliatelle ai funghi porcini, lacked a bit of seasoning for me but was, nevertheless very good. The main was (untypical of Italy serving) meat with the vegetables and fries all on the same plate. I am glad it was not too big a portion as the generous amount of pasta preceding it was very filling. Dolce is not included nor is coffee but if you have the room you can order them. Nevertheless as a major tourist area the price to quality ratio is excellent..

This place can offer you a fantastic choice of Italian cuisine! Truffles meat, pasta and.... the best tiramisù I have ever eaten!

My family and I were exhausted, and we needed something to eat very much. It was about 5:30 pm. When we hit the entrance door to ask for a four seat table, the owner just said it's closed! In a very rude way. I don't think I will take someone there!

We visited the Frasassi caves and were utterly amazed at the scale of the speleological wonders on show. We then walked to Ristorante Francesco (which i confess was not our first choice) and were utterly delighted by the experience. Don’t be put off by the utilitarian decor. The fungi and dishes featuring tartufo were excellent. Veal was cooked to perfection. All in all excellent food at a reasonable price.

Came with a friend and their family on a busy public holiday. Though the place was packed everyone was served quickly and had loads to eat. Though they did a set menu on this day there was still choice and they catered for individual requirements. The price we paid was excellent value. The tiramisu dessert was like a little bit of heaven in a bowl.
