We have been going to this restaurant since we moved here 11 years ago. It is family run and they are great. The greet you by name on phone and in person. The food is good and reasonably priced.

We've eaten here before in warm weather in the shade outside. The food has always been good and we were delighted to find them open for lunch on New Year's Day when we drove through town with visiting friends. We had four different items and each was as good as it could be. Coffee and water were refilled promptly and... More

The waitresses hear have a major issue looking as if their happy. They seem to be miserable and thats saying a lot seeing as I've been coming here since 1998! The food is pretty good considering in the area you have about 25 other options for Italian. We keep coming back as we find this to be a good spot... More

Excellent food and fabulous service. It has a great hometown feel about it, too. Seemingly family run, everyone was upbeat and helpful. We have to come back again and again to try out other dishes coming from the kitchen looked and smelled delicious.

My girlfriend and I went for lunch. We had 2 parmigiana sandwiched. Nothing better for the money. Good service.

We arrived in town late so we missed going to the restaurant we wanted for lunch since they weren't serving lunch at that hour so we went to DiFranco's. There is indoor and outdoor dining and the decor was very nice for what is basically a glorified pizza parlor. My Philly cheesesteak, while very good, was not a true PHILLY... More

Horrible... Horrible.....horribleness. I really couldn't believe what we were given. I had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken and Caesar dressing out of gallon container, my girl got a grilled chicken wrap... Just horrible. Boring and obviously no thought put into it at all. Bill was like $36. I'm by no means cheap... Just all around a terrible meal. Stay... More

They have great pizza but I prefer the veal dishes that they serve. For folks who want outside dining they have a great spot to watch the Litchfield scene. The prices can't be beat in Litchfield and the family running it is very friendly.

We love coming here on a beautiful summer evening, sitting outside and enjoying one of theirs great pizzas. They also have good specials. It's on the green in Litchfield so the ambiance is really nice.

Our waitress did not smile or even act politely during our entire meal. Plus she tried to clear my plate before I was even half way through my meal. She kept coming back every five minutes, five times to be precise and yet when we were finished she didn't come back for 30 minutes. And, another waitress had to be... More

Difranco's Restaurant in Litchfield is located on the corner of West Street and is the only Restaurant with Outside Dining. The prices are fair and the service is friendly. The food is excellent and at a great price. Our PIzza is great because we make the dough fresh every day and it is a nice New York Style Pizza that is thin.
