Their online menu has a small gluten-free section but tried it anyway. Nearly every item on their menu can be made gluten-free. Very accommodating for special dietary needs. Loved the sautéed calamari with marinara (appetizer big enough to feed a family of 3) and while the gluten free pizza was pretty much the standard Udi's crust, the toppings and flavors... More

My go to place for quality food at a reasonable price in Maitland when I have business guests from out of town. At the bar, a table inside or outside, weather permitting, my go to dish is salmon salad. The pasta portions are very generous. It is fun to sit at the bar and watch the chefs in action.

Francesco is usually in the open kitchen preparing wonderful dishes for his regulars. His mother and father are usually somewhere close adding to the experience. Francesco's is wonderful, affordable restaurant in Maitland. Don't let the outside fool you. Yes, it's in a mini-strip center. However, it's located in the heart of Maitland and the inside is wonderfully appointed and makes... More

Great food. Attentive staff. Reasonably priced. The pastas, salads and pizzas are all fresh. Open kitchen so you can sit at the bar and see how the food is prepared and feel part of the action.

From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.
