A colleague was in the city and had previously gone to the restaurant. I felt the food was ok but overpriced. The server was good, we sat outside and was noisy as to be expected on W Georgia street. Should have stayed in Yaletown as we first planned. Not worth it.

YUM YUM YUM MY HUSBAND CLAIMS THIS IS THE BEST VEAL HE HAS HAD SINCE FLORENCE ITALY. MY DUCK DISH WAS GREAT. NICE AMBIANCE . WE WERE PRETTY CASUAL BUT FELT VERY COMFORTABLE. WAITER WAS NOT INTRUSIVE BUT THERE WHEN WE NEEDED SOMETHING. GOOD SIZED PORTIONS, FOOD CAME HOT TO TABLE IN FAIRLY SHORT TIME. HAVING PUBLIC PARKING RIGHT NEXT DOOR MADE THIS VERY CONVENIENT TO THOSE WHO HAVE SOME MOBILITY CONCERNS. THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME EATING HERE AND SINCE WE LIVE IN CALIFORNIA WE CAN"T RETURN SOON BUT WE WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANY VANCOUVER RESIDENT. ONE CAUTION IS THAT TRAFFIC WAS HEAVY SUNDAY EVENING WHEN WE WENT TO DINNER AND STREETS OF VANCOUVER HAVE MANY ONE WAYS AND PEDESTRIANS ONLY SO MAKE SURE YOU GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TRAVEL TIME AND KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE GOING.

Very good experience. 3rd time visiting this restaurant. The outside heating lamp was out of gas and they were able to accommodate us and move us inside once it got cold.

No complaints.....all very good.

The food was very good, Patio is ok. One problem, We informed our weiter that we were using our Sunday, "five and after" half price reduction. However, we were told after we ordered, that one of the Items on the Pasta List was not eligible for the, "five and after" half price reduction. We think that lacks class and speaks poorly for the Restaurant.

My group has been coming to Francesco's for almost 20 years. We love the location, food, the wine, the location, the people who run the place, and of course the city.
