Italian
Despite its small stature, DiFranco’s in the Golden Triangle / Cap Hill offers a largely satisfying menu of Italian cuisine options. The interior of the restaurant is rather simple with small, sleek chairs and tables that offer you a place to relax while you await your scrumptious meal at Di Franco’s.

Highly recommended menu options include the caesar salad, spaghetti and chicken parm, a seasonal pasta and the pizza logs. All the foods are made from a careful selection of delicious ingredients and spices. The flavors are reminiscent of Italian home cooking with an elevated twist. Visit DiFranco’s and satisfy your hunger with some amazing Italian cuisine options.

    DiFranco’s food is delicious, from the salads to the cannolis. Everyone who works there is so kind, and the Wednesday date night special is such a great deal for an outing. When it gets busy, you can end up sitting pretty close to other people, but that isn’t a big deal to me. I could hear my partner just fine. If that does bother you, I’d recommend trying for an earlier or later dinnertime because then it’s less crowded and reservations are more staggered.

    Honestly, I am not sure exactly what I expected when I went in. It was the start of a date night and was mildly surprised by the small space. Ordering was done at a kiosk at the front where other customers can pick up food or order items to go from the small deli. That said, it was a cute little space and the lady at the kiosk (whose name I did not get, I am afraid) was delightful and friendly. The pizza logs were delicious, my date loved her penne, and I enjoyed my stuffed shells. The Italian sausage was a bit too peppery for my preference, but not enough to ruin the meal by any means. Overall a pleasant surprise and worth keeping in mind for another night.

    GREAT Italian food, fun and energetic atmosphere. Has been a favorite of ours for years, first time back to eat in since COVID. Love the food! Metal seats were not so good for my back.
