On a road trip with my wife stopped in for dinner. The atmosphere was very relaxing, the staff was courteous and very friendly. Presentation was very nice and all the food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The cost was no more than any other nice Italian restaurant. Will definitely stop in every time we are in the area.

We have been going to Francesca's for several years for lunch and dinner on a regular basis and the food and service are always wonderful.We even have taken our son and daughter in law there, who are from New York, and not easy to impress and they loved it.
I attended a "wine dinner" last night and it was really terrific. The wine was way above average and the food the best I have ever had there. My compliments to the Chef for a really fun evening!
I recommend this restaurant highly.

Best Italian, and some of the greatest service in Gainesville! Definitely ask about the specials. They often have a seafood ravioli that is amazing!

I like to just sit at the bar and enjoy wine and dinner chatting with the crowd.
Gainesville is not known for professional wait staff...... College town!
The food is always cooked and presented correctly ......fresh and hot.
A little expensive but very good quality. My choice is the seafood and pasta entrees. Ciao

Visited on a Thursday night and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and attentive service. Unfortunately it wasn't very crowded so didn't get the true feel of the atomosphere, but imagine during the school year it will be more crowded. Four people at our table ordered the penne with shrimp and broccoli which was delicious. The others enjoyed their meals as well.
