Absolutely wonderful, service was great at lunch time, able to eat and relax, but still get back to work!
Fabulous, great food . Service was excellent. Waiter perfect. Outside dinning was Fabulous, keeping me warm with hot coffee ☕. Thank you Poco our waiter, making me feel that little bit of Italian in the circle of orange. Please visit
Always a wonderful time at Francoli! Service and food, top of the line
Great wonderful place!
Always excellent food & attentive service. Felt very welcomed and enjoyed Hosting bday lunch for a dear friend. We felt safe & were socially distanced.
Salad - very wilted.
Clams - tasteless and few of them.
House wine - wonderful.
Friend’s filet tacos - delicious
Their weekly specials are always wonderful. Cocktail preparation is great and inventive. I love eating outside, even though that is the only choice right now!
Francoli’s is the best!
One of the best and authentic Italian restaurants in Southern California. They also have a location in the Piedmont region in Italy as well. Try Fancoli Gourmet, they won’t disappoint and you will definitely enjoy. Truly outstanding!
It was great other than the untrained hostess telling us at the moment we were seated that they needed the table back by 6:15. I felt it was an idiotic statement to make when seating a couple on a Saturday night. Other than that stupidity it was really good.
This was a weekend so a lot more crowded. It's more pleasant during the week when there are empty tables. But the food and service were still up to their high standards.
Great all around experience! The food never disappoints!
Everything we had was off the charts great! Service as always was superb.
Friendly staff and Quick service
We were looking for a casual place with really great food, and we found it. The bucatini was perfect. We will definitely be back.
Francoli Gourmet never disappoints! Their entire staff is there to serve you in every way possible. They're kind and nice when they greet you and wait on you. The food is amazing. I had some of the best salmon I've ever had in my life last week and I'm now afraid I'll never try anything else there!
Great food and great service. We had a reservation and they were accmodating as to the seat that we wanted.
We really enjoyed our meal and drinks at Francoli’s! Service was excellent too! Thank you!
Friendly staff and delicious food!
Dinner was great. This is a good place for a date. Not too pricey, yet still nice. The server was friendly.
outstanding service and food...also if you like top shelf Italian wines in OC you have found the best selection this side of Tuscany...once you go you will be back...Alberto and team are da best...don suggs
Wonderful outdoor dining experience. Service was a bit slow but great overall. Food and wine excellent as always. Love the new added on outdoor tables.
We were a party of three, two newbies. We all enjoyed our Pasta Entrees. The Mushroom Polenta appetizer was not as Creamy as in the past and the Mushroom sauce topping lacked it's usual great flavor??
The food was great, and so was the service!
We will return soon
Friendly, courteous and available servers; seating was good, quiet and comfortable, with pleasant views. Food was served hot and fresh, but portions were small, and even basic pasta items were quite expensive. Menu had extensive selection, representing a wider than average array of Northern Italian dishes. Good experience, but way overpriced. There are a few other Italian eateries in the immediate vicinity, and I would recommend considering diminish there instead.
Great place for fresh fish, pasta, Italian wine. Interesting specials are available each week.
Casual dining in the street is very European and goes well with the Italian feel. Covid, and a mask, of course puts a damper on everything... but the food and service makes up for it all in the end. Love this restaurant!
Great service especially during covid. Drinks were weak and we said something and they replaced them for us. Food wasn’t the best. Service was great.
We love this place ! Always a great meal and great service !
Great, authentic Italian food, served with a smile. The menu is is good and the food that comes out of the kitchen is even better.
Nice selection of menu items. But the food was excessively salty for Northern Italian fare, the whole family was drinking water to quench our thirst all night and the next morning. In addition, the risotto in my dish was still hard and not fully cooked. Didn’t mention anything during the meal because I didn’t want to ruin a rare night out during COVID. But I think the kitchen could either use more help or take on fewer orders to control the quality better
Our reservation was at 5:15 because all other time slots were full. It was outdoor seating. We were in the corner on the patio under the roof so there wasn’t much wind and it was pretty warm. But the food was delicious! The carbonara really hit the spot! Service was great and they would frequently use Italian phrases, which I found very charming. The location is right on the square so it was great for people watching. I would definitely go back, but probably after sunset.
This place continues to be amazing. Outdoor seating is fine. Service remains top shelf and food is incredible.
The seafood specials are always great. And you can’t beat the wine specials for value. Love eating outside on a pedestrian only street.
We dined outside at a very safe distance from other customers. We LOVED the al fresco experience! It felt like we were dining in Italy. The service was super special! We really enjoyed our server. Paco recommended some amazing dishes-the ragu con cinghale and the osso buco were amazing. He heard our "happy birthday" toast and at the end of our meal he brought out some amazing tiramisu. Love this gem in the circle of Orange!
Well executed Northern Italian specialties at a moderate price. Really tried to made the ambiance pleasant even though we're still having to dine outdoors and it was a hot night!
Always excellent food and service, absolutely love this place.
Outdoor dining on closed street space; ate 8pm so was pretty quiet.
Service was quick, friendly and informative as always.
Food - filet medallions and pasta dish- was delicious.
Son had pasta dish for $16 which was delicious; our steaks were higher price at $28 but well worth it.
Dessert: fresh coconut sorbet was great too.
Due to the pandemic, all seating is outside. They’ve still managed to keep things clean and deliver a good meal. The servers were friendly and prompt. I will definitely be going back.
Great dinner at Francoli. The outdoor seating is wonderful since they closed down the street. Like eating in an Italian plaza!
