Six of us spent a lovely Sunday afternoon luncheon at La Casa di Francesca and all were delighted with the wide variety of delicious options available for the starter, the first course and the second. Since we were there in the autumn, the seasonal foods were abundant with creative presentations that delighted the entire party. I managed a starter that... More

Lovely lunch destination. Friends who visited a year ago recommended this out of the way restaurant. We arrived on a busy Tuesday National holiday- crowded and lively diners all here for a relaxed lunch experience. All was delicious except my grilled lamb which was difficult to cut and eat. Daniele brought us this recent harvest olive oil -delicious and a... More

The restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to the Cortona area to try La Casa di Francesca. I would definitely go back... More

We dine at this locaiton 2 - 3 three times a year, the food is always very well presented with some dishes providing an explosion of ingredients, fab. There is a limited menu for non meat eaters and sometimes a delay in the main course service. Great quality price relationship. Lovely enviroment, relaxing and friendly.

This holiday we ate at Francesca's twice, both times experiencing relaxed yet refined dining, with delicious food. The portions are generous, the food excellent with some unusual items to try for the adventurous. The steak is always great, the pasta fantastic and there is normally fish on the menu. The 'house' wines (served if you simply ask for red or... More

We went to this restaurant tonight. After we placed our order we received a tasty appetiser. We then got the starter, a variety of local specialties that were mostly good but marked the end of our positive experience. We then waited for >1 hour before receiving the first course (pasta) and I should note that the restaurant was not full... More

A local friend introduced us to La Casa di Francesca for lunch. We fell in love with the place and the owners.

During a wonderful dinner at La casa di Francesca, we noticed they had a cookery school. We booked this for a few days afterwards for the two of us. We chose a "meat lesson" from a choice of 4 different lessons. The kitchen is large, well equipped and spacious. We were shown how to cook a roast leg of lamb,... More
