We were pleasantly surprised with this little ristorante. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The wait time on a Saturday night, without reservations, wasn't too long, either. And the food!! It was wonderful. Flavors full and delicious with old world charm throughout. The veal rollatini with a pink Alfredo sauce was out of this world. Thanks Francesco.

I had a Eggplant Parmesan. It is the best I've ever had. We decided to take home a cannoli. We will definitely be back.

Don't judge this place by the strip mall location. The food is outstanding, and service impeccable. We had salads & garlic bread to start, and then Chicken Parm & Marsala, with Rigatoni. Everything was great.

This is definitely a must for Italian food in Williamsburg VA. It's a small place so get a reservation. There is a good variety of menu choices. Dinner prices are average, lunch prices good. Portion are nice. The bread is great. We had the seafood cannelloni and the veal piccatta. Both were very good. The veal was tender like butter.... More

First of all I'm from NYC. My husband and I started with the pizza and then went on to shrimp scampi, veal marsala, coffee and canolli for dessert. Best Italian I've had since leaving NY. Everything made from scratch-including pizza dough. Even the coffee was excellent! Service was A++! Williamsburg here we come!!!

Was next door picking up a car from Enterprise and asked about places to eat. They recommended Francesco's, noting they frequently order from there. Unassuming and quaint spot. Owners have made the most of the space. Food was excellent and authentic--had clams in white wine sauce and my 9 yr old son ordered a Stromboli. He tried 2 new foods... More

Food was only fair. The space is tight and they jam you in like cattle. The lava cake was good but should have ordered it with ice cream.

My family & I love Italian, so we decided to forsake our favorite place for a closer place to eat one night. Well, we were surprised first by the very small entrance which was closed off from the rest of the very small restaurant which was inside. As the hostess opened the door, we were quit surprised by the quaint... More
