Visiting SMA but either confused about Mexican Food or not sure where to eat tonite?? Go to this wonderful, friendly, charming and very affordable spot! Wonderful atmosphere, street level dining inside charming dining room or up the spiral staircase to the second level with upper street views. The Italian fare is extremely well prepared and all entries are well priced....try... More

Francescos has two levels a roof top and a main floor - their focus is Italian but their Greek Salad is large and excellent. Their specials are often a surprising combination of flavors.

Walked by the day before and liked the small cozy red checkered table clothed table layout. Arrived at 6:45 PM without a reservation, not busy, picked our table (full at 8 PM). Good service, nice music mix at a low volume, varied menu. Had margaritas that were on the high side of sour. Ordered a bottle of wine but they... More

I had Chicken Marsala and it had absolutely no flavor. All six of us had something different and none of us were impressed. Not only was the food bad but the service was worse, most of us would have had another drink or glass of wine but it wasn't worth the effort. There are too many good restaurants in San... More

This was a plan "B", and a pleasant surprise. I had an excellent chicken parm, and my wife another shrimp dish.

It was a Sunday evening. Our plan was to go to Monet's Restaurant next door which our friends had told us was a great restaurant. Monet's was closed. Francesco's next door was also Italian and appeared clean with red and white checkered table cloths. We decided to try it and we were certainly thrilled with our decision. Daniela, our server,...

Francesco's have two sizes of pizza : medium and large. I had the medium and was suprised to see the size of it. I was way too much for me alone. The staff was happy to give me a doggy bag. The service was excellent. I would definitely go back.

When our favorite Italian restaurant was full, we decided to try Francesco's. I had been there a few years ago, and only recall that the service was horrible. Last night the service was just fine, but the food was only adequate. I had Pasta Puttanesca, which is one of my standbys. I found the pasta to be thick and tasteless... More
