Nice quiet Italian restaurant. My cocktail was filled with giant ice cubes...not much to drink. We ordered pizza. It took 45 minutes to arrive. Defiantly not worth the wait.

A very friendly restaurant with good food is a keeper. We have come here several times in the past but were taken here on a Monday eve by friends who wanted pizza. It turns out they have a pizza special on Mondays , 2 for 1, and they were wonderful. Being from New York and DC my expectations to find... More

Started the evening on the roof top bar/lounge where the waiter kept changing the music from bad to worse and the volume the same. Asked to be moved downstairs as the wind came up, which was no problem. However with 4 staff working, and two tables occupied it was painful to get service! The pizzas (we were persuaded to go...

Pizzas were awesome. They have an English menu and the servers also can converse. They are helpful and try to get you what you want.

We went there twice, once by ourselves (dinner) and once with two other people (lunch). The first time was very good. The salmon is delicious. The second time, the two people we were with didn't have a great experience, so we felt a bit embarrassed. Wednesday is two for one pasta day! :)

I went today with friends. The restaurant was empty but the food took a good long time to arrive. We order salmon. It came with hard bearally cooked vegetable and no pasta or rice. When we mentioned that the vegies are not cooked the response from the kitchen was that the cook considers them well cooked, so it's just to... More

They have a moderate variety of salads. When it comes to pasta, there are more choices but I expected that pizza menu was going to be more extensive. Anyhow, environment is familiar and terrace location is quite good.

Pastas are done well. The staff is professional and the restaurant has deals with Mondays being 2 for 1 pizzas and Wednesdays 2 for 1 pastas. Many of the photos on Trip Advisor must be of upstairs. The main dining room is done in old school Italian with racks of wine and frescoes of Italy. Nice place for a quiet... More

The service at Francesco's is impeccable. The wait staff is super accommodating and very pleasant. To be honest, I only go for the pizza. You can choose a plethora of toppings. The pizzas are enormous and thin crust - my favorite! The ambience is pleasant albeit a little dark inside and dated but that also lends a certain charm. Definitely... More
