“Tasty home cooking”
Review of Zio francos' - CLOSED

Zio francos'
Cuisines: Italian

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: An Italian Cafe Bistro with a local twist. Telephone number is 07936 045708. They do not appear to have their own website but the URL above is taken from Local Data Search. It's a cracking wee place and deserves to be listed on tripadvisor.

The food is always freshly prepared and good quality with reasonable prices. When it is busy you may need to wait a little for food to be prepared and cooked but it is worth the wait.

I had a very nice capuccino & a delicious panini (goats cheese, basil pesto & pine nuts, which was fresh & well-balanced - yum!). The atmosphere was friendly & relaxed, and I spent a lovely unhurried time there. The food is excellent - there's a good range of daily specials & a set menu, and it's very reasonably priced, consdering it's just off the main square in Kirkwall. Definitely a place I'll go back to next time I'm up in Kirkwall.

Tasty food for all the family at a price that suits the pocket of a mum with a larger than average sized brood.
Healthy food with decent sized portions in a warm window seat with no pressure to keep kids quiet .
Friendly and fast service with a few freebies added in which is always a bonus in the school holidays.
Best of the eateries we tested on our Easter travels around the cafes of kirkwall

What a delightful place for lunch! Generous portions and tastefully served.
The hot chocolate was a meal in itself!

We stopped in for lunch. The homemade soup was good and there is a wonderful selection of gluten-free products, including a number of fresh baked cakes. The hot chocolate was a work of art! The proprietor and her staff are friendly and nice.
