Me and my wife went there on Valentine's night. It was a very romantic night. I can say that the Steak Alpacino was amazing and also the Raviolli Quattro Formagi was lovely too. We really recommend this restaurant and we will go again shortly!

The best thing about this place is the warm welcome and atmosphere. It has a real charm. I recommend the Ravioli which is excellent. A much better experience and a lot more fun than some of the chain italian resteraunts on offer in the area.

Visited Francesco's on Saturday night. Very good authentic traditional Italian food with genuine enthusiasm from the owners. We chose Bruschetta, very good Cannelloni (made with pancakes, rather than pasta) and an excellent Zabaglione - a dessert that most Italian restaurants do not have the skills or confidence to make. The house wine was very good and all in all it... More

Friendly welcome, good "home made" food - tasty not fancy. House wine £11 bottle, main dishes mostly £10 - £14 so very good value. Large portions - we couldn't finish!

Came here literally 2 days befor Christmas, myself and partner were viewing a house to buy in the area. I'd seen this restaurant previously and was taken by it due to the table cloths! Red and white check! Really enjoyed the food, the owner and his wife were lovely and welcoming. Even offering to make something not on the menu... More

The decor is a bit jaded but this doesn't detract from a lovely homely atmosphere. Red gingham table cloths, very retro. Quite well patronised for a cold Monday evening with another twelve diners in this fairly small restaurant. And I see why. Friendly and welcoming, a good menu without there being anything exceptional. Good size portions and good homely quality.... More

A real lovely little restaurant. Fantastic staff. Lovely food. Pizza's are really special and I love the Veal and beef dishes. Well to be honest I have enjoyed everything I have had here. My family love it here and is always a top choice when we go out. A fantastic place.
