Went there this evening for the first time, but not the last. The service by Alan and the food were first class. Both my wife and I had the baked ziti which was superb. We took home what we couldn't eat. Thank you for a great eating experience. We will certainly be returning.

We dined on a Tuesday and, much to our delight, there was a "not to be missed " special. All five of us actually ordered the special but the table next to us had a fine looking pizza delivered to their table which we might try next time. The $10.99 special included a choice of pasta type, choice of sauce,... More

Updated review after a 5 star review 12/14. Food still five star, service 3 star, atmosphere 3 star. Ate here at the tail end of the dinner rush, so all tables were full when we arrived, and we were among the last to leave. It only took about 5-10 minutes to get seated, but then we waited and waited for... More

Great service, well prepared food and perfect casual couples atmosphere will bring us back for more. And now we must try the pizza! Old school simple Italian, the veal was not pre-made, it was pounded, battered... More

We ordered off the menu but should have ordered the pizza. We started with an artichoke app that was very good. One entrée was the gnocchi, tasty, was ok but heavier then usual. Forgot what the other entrée was. WE would go back for the pizza. THe place was crowded with locals

This is the second time I've been to Francesca's and it continues to be very good. Shared bruschetta, chicken piccata and creamy baked ziti. Each were delicious!!!

Sarasota's best Italian restaurant & Pizzeria. As soon as you walk in the aromas will bring you back to Sunday dinners at Nonna's house. Serving the best food for over 10 years. Voted Best Pizza and Best Speciality Pizza. Serving thin crust hand tossed NY style pizza. Excellent chicken, veal & seafood dishes. Extensive list of Salads and vegetarian options. Famous bruschetta appetizer like no other. Homemade sinful creamy tiramisu. Cozy, casual atmosphere.
