We have been dining at Franchetti’s since they opened. The food is consistently fabulous. We especially love the Chicken Saltimbocca, Pizza and Caesar Piadini. Lemonade and Desserts are great as well. They do often special German dishes that are great too. The owners make extra efforts to make everyone feel welcome and make sure diners have everything they need. The waitstaff are also very attentative.

It is just a “not to be missed” experience.

Liked the offerings at Happy Hour, though the kitchen was out of Brussels at 5:30 - ???? Received salad before we received our cocktail - ???? And, received our pizza before we were finished with cocktail and salad. Seemed a bit rushed, even though restaurant was not busy. Loved the $7 cocktail when we finally received it. The Caesar salad was delicious but a bit overdressed. The gluten free pizza was the best I have had in Sonoma County so far. Nice job overall - just needs a little refinement. Wish the atmosphere was a little cozier.

As always, they served us three wonderful salads. The menu is very tempting as it contains full dinners, pizza, appetizers, and wonderful specials. Always take friends there and they love the food. Nice outside patio. Inside can be loud with children playing and table tennis!!

Amazing brunch food, especially the crab eggs benedict. The spices and food combos were perfect, in fact we went back two days in a row for the same meal!!

We paid over $100 for 2 12-inch pizzas and wine. Service was sub-par. Would not recommend

Staff seemed over run, took a long time to get any type of service but they were friendly and the food was decent.

Will give it another shot.

Poor service and food. Felt like I was in a cafeteria. Server was absent for 45 minutes, finally had to call a manager over because we couldn't get our servers attention. Would not return.

Can't really recommend this place. We love Rossos and decided to give Franchettis a try. We didn't have a bad experience, but nothing stood out. Pizza was good as was the calamari. The schnitzel was not good, very tough. Service was friendly but inefficient. Also wasn't a big fan of the ping pong table in the dining room. A ping ping ball bouncing on a concrete floor doesn't exactly enhance the ambiance. Overall, it's OK. But I doubt we'll return.

I made a reservation at Franchetti for lunch since it was close to a business appointment. LOL. You walk up to a counter to order at lunch time! No white tablecloths here. However, the food was really excellent. We shared a wonderful calamari (which included green beans and sprinkled with olives & carrots) and an excellent salad. Had a fantastic freshly made mint lemonade. While not cheap, it is very good value for the quality of food you get. We will return. I just won't be looking for the maitre d'. Although in the evening they said that they have table waiters.

Have eaten at their restaurant twice in the past few weeks after discovering their fantastic pizza created at a winery music event. Casual but very comfortable. Great to take friends to and they have a very nice outside patio. Great salads and full menu.

There were interesting choices of food, but my husband was disappointed that the fried calamari came with deep fried veggies, as well. Too much fried stuff on one plate.

I enjoyed the Crab Louie Salad.

Our party of 12 felt that the service was super! We loved the beet salad and the Chicken Saltimbocca, Pig Roast, Caesar Salad and the Callimari Fritti. The fried chicken doesn't say Cajun on the menu and the diner that ordered it had to return it because it was too hot. Also, the house made peach pie wasn't a real hit with the crowd.

Really enjoyed the food. But for the price we paid, I feel like we should of had table service. I did not enjoy having to order first. If we wanted anyother drink we had to run inside to order. The staff is already serving the food. Service was great. Will definitely go back.
