Francesca’s on Chestnut is a member of the Francesca's Restaurant Group. Located on the first floor of the Seneca Boutique Apartments, the restaurant brings its famous rustic, Italian cuisine to the 180-seat space. Francesca’s provide a classic fare of zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. The wine list and specialty drinks are equally impressive in this one-of-a-kind location featuring a hidden wine bar, DiSotto Enoteca on lower level.
