We have eaten here many times. The Chicken Parmigiana is the best I've had in Orlando. My wife likes to order a special chicken dinner, and Francesco is always happy to accommodate. Very friendly atmosphere. The wait is a little long at times, but it's worth it.
One of our favorite spots. Always a great meal. Get a reservation well in advance.
Francescos has been my wife and I's go to spot for 4 yrs now. The food so fresh that it is hard to imagine food tasting any better than it does at this restaurant.
Love this place! A total go-to for excellent food and service
Francesco's is a lively, classic Italian neighborhood spot for great food and wine at very reasonable prices! Great for special occaisions! Like your grandson's 7 month birthday, for example!!
The place is a bit noisy and the night we were there they had strolling singers...which made it difficult at times to have conversation. The food was wonderful.
Love to see familiar faces, meaning staff and Francesco himself.
Our server always knows what my favorite pizza is. Love this place. Feels like I'm dining with family.
Looooved it! Our dinners were all delicious. The server was so fun and nice! Best night!
As a restaurant professional, I always hope that I can have a great dinning experience like this. We were there in the middle of the lunch rush, which can be one of the most challenging in this business, and it was great. Thank you!
This is absolutely the BEST Italian food anywhere in Orlando! Great value; wonderful quality. Ambience. MY FAV!!!!!!!!!
Nice ambiance, very good italian food and wine list, well trained staff, deserts are ok. Well run establishment.
We had a wonderful time.Service was excellent as well. We each enjoyed our meals but above all else, everyone at our table raved about my lasagna.
On a side note, shouldn't I have received 1000 points for this table? It was showing as a 1000 point booking for the night of March 25, through the app and a special email I received.Thank you
Three visits in four months proves Francesco knows how to prepare fresh southern Italian dishes. We're hooked! Every server we've had has been attentive and quick. Something you want not on the menu? Ask and receive!
Every time I dine at Francesco I have a good experience.
We've been there many times and enjoy the food. This time I ordered the Veal special. It was the first time I've ordered Veal in many many years. Yikes, it was tough and chewy. The waiter was so nice that I just gutted it out and ate half of it. I thought he'd question why so much was left on the plate but up went the plate and out the door. Overall it's a pretty great place and a good value.
Awesome place to have dinner with family and friends . They make you feel like family ☺️
Great food and service! Best marinara sauce in town!
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but the David could have been more attentive. It took a while to get water refills and the check at the end. We also had to get the him to split up the bill at the end which resulted in another wait when he could have asked how to set up the bill. The food was excellent, as usual, and the seating was great.
This restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside and you may even miss it when you drive by but you should try it. We have done dinner and lunch there and have always been pleased with the service and food. The owner is a hands on chef and with the open kitchen you can see him cooking and supervising each every order. Have never been disappointed. Not a place to go though, if you are in a hurry. Relax and enjoy the experience.
