Welcome to a taste of Italy in the heart of Brooklyn.
This Neapolitan owned oasis is an unquestionable favorite by the local community in Williamsburg. The food represents the traditional recipes from the homeland of Naples and is influenced by the modern taste of the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood. The Francesco's passion for Italian cuisine is embodied by Salerno-born chef, Francesco Cuozzo. Chef Cuozzo insists on serving his guests only the most authentic Italian products available. The menu features Northern and Southern Italian delicacies such as imported cheeses and cured meats, wild game, and homemade pastas.
The Francesco offers affordable pricing, and a full bar with innovative wine selections. The ambiance is quite enchanting; candlelit tables, exposed brick walls, sky-lit ceiling, perfect for a casual dinner al fresco or an intimate night out. Located in the heart of Williamsburg's historic Italian district.

I have been going to Da Francesco for many years and I have never been disappointed, It is an old school Italian restaurant with some real talent in the kitchen.

The food was good. For the price, I've had better, but no real complaints overall. There were a few mixups getting the right food to the right table while we were there. We got someone else's food a few minutes after we ordered. 2 out of 3 of the dishes were correct, so it was a bit confusing. We had to sit looking at another party's food while it was sorted out, especially hard for our 13 year old who was very hungry. Otherwise, the staff were all very pleasant and helpful, apologetic when mistakes were made and quick to correct any problem.

The food was excellent - the Vodka Penne with shrimp was superb, as was the Salmon encrusted with pistachio - as was the friendly service and homey atmosphere. It was a fun and romantic date night for us before we went to Brooklyn Steel, which is just a few blocks away.

Came here on a date with my girlfriend. I could not have asked for more from my dining experience at Da Francesco. The food was some of the best I've had in quite some time (that says a lot living in NYC). The service was impeccable. Never felt rushed, but also never waited for anything we needed. Already planned our next visit to try some of the other items on the menu!

Went there for a birthday celebration and it was so much fun. They had live music and there was dancing after 10:00. Appetizers were delicious! Especially the calamari ! All food was delicious and service was great!

Excellent food, and fantastic service. We were a group of 8 and the server recommended appetizers for the table - they were plentiful and yummy. One person did not order a full meal but tried everyone’s dish (yes that person :) and could not stop raving about every bite she tried. I ordered the veal chop and it was cooked to absolute perfection. My Dad declared the place a “home run”. Everyone was happy and full. Great spot.

Good food. Great service. I highly recommend. I had the short ribs and potatoes which was falling off the bone. My wife had fish and my kids had penne ala vodka.

If you are looking for an Italian meal like your Nonna. Used to make , but with a sophisticated twist you found it here. I love this restaurant.
The atmosphere is lovely. There is Italian music playing in the background , and the waiters are very attentive.
The chef makes a unique gnocchi dish that is my favorite as is the grilled octopus and calamari

This is probably my favorite Italian restaurant. The food is always top notch. Service is not quick but is very pleasant. Lovely room. They sometimes have live entertainment as they did when we were here. Italian standards and old OLD favorites. My "kids" (28 and 29) enjoyed the entertainment too. We had the short ribs, fresh spicy pasta, chicken roasted and another homemade pasta. All were delicious. Clams, artichokes, lentil soup and calamari (THE BEST EVER) were the apps. Didn't have room for dessert.
