I've been here on numerous occasions and highly recommend the outrageously good food. The owner Frank is from Italy and his mother taught him and the rest of the large family how to cook this amazing food. Seriously the pizza is fantastic but the highlights for us are the fresh bruschetta, artichoke piccata, the gondola, chicken piccata, and if you're... More

I love the pizza and one of my favorite dishes is chicken franchese. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a good NY Italian Pizza or just a little taste of italian. This is by far my favorite italian places to eat.

I love, love, love the Calabrese pizza! It's my go to order every Friday! The homemade Italian dressing is amazing too! I get it for my salad and have to get extra for the kids to dip their crust. The staff and owners are super friendly! We've also ordered the family style dinners, which are delicious, easily customized and affordable.... More

If you're looking for fresh, authentic Italian food-- Francesco's is the place!! The homemade lasagna paired with their house red wine is outstanding! My kids won't eat pizza from anywhere else and must top off dinner with the best Cannoli I've ever had! We recently had Francesco's cater a party for us and every one of our guests raved about...

Francesco's fits nicely into the popular world of Italian-American pizza & pasta with red sauce emporiums. Located in a modest strip mall one enters a darkish room furnished plainly. Seating can be tight but friendly service makes for an expansive feeling. One of us ordered a pizza Margarita which arrived as ordered: crisp and hot. Spaghetti aglio & olio were... More

Earlier this evening, I was over a friends house in Sarasota. We planned to go out for dinner, and I suggested we go to Yoder's Amish restaurant. Somehow the subject of Italian food came up, and we decided to go to his favorite Italian restaurant Francesco's. Now I haven't been to an Italian restaurant since going to one in South... More

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.
