We decided to eat out in Maidenhead on a Friday night. We shared a starter of Calamari with an enormous pot of garlic mayonnaise, which was fine. My hubbie had the seafood risotto and I had the mushroom risotto, washed down with a Peroni. The risottos were fine but not as deliciously moreish as risottos can be. The side dish of green beans sauteed in garlic butter with parmesan shavings on top was very good. For pudding we had the panna cotta with rasps which was fine, and a very good lemon sorbet which had all the texture of a creamy ice cream. Service was attentive and well paced, and the meal was perfectly okay, but only two of the things we ordered were more than just fine. The place was really busy, and it was fun to sit outside and watch people pass by. We would probably go again and try something different.

Visited Francesco ' s on 21st July. Food was lovely, salmon was cooked beautifully and the steak was perfect for medium rare, my 7 year old daughter demolished it. Son had a pizza which he enjoyed ( that is praise indeed from a very fussy eater). Husband had a seafood pizza which was described as very nice.
Staff were friendly and the service was good. Would definitely eat here again.
This restaurant also takes taste card so that's a bonus!!

The worst food I've eaten. The pasta sauce had so much garlic in it and had barely been chopped up just massive half cloves that weren't cooked. This is 3rd time I've been and the food is always awful. Won't be coming again.

We called here recently as it had received good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed, the staff were very attentive and pleasant and the food was freshly prepared and reasonably priced.
Would recommend Francescos.

Haute Cuisine it is not and it does not pretend to be, but if you want the finest pizza in town, or a vast selection of delightful Italian dishes at reasonable prices, you would be well advised to try Francesco's. The staff are just the greatest, with a smiling welcome and a sound knowledge of the menu. The service is speedy and is ideal for a pre or post visit to the cinema that is a mere 50 yards from the restaurant. If the sun is shining, there are outside tables and it is fun to people watch the population of Maidenhead, as they go about their business. Highly recommended.
