We have been eating here for the past two years and to this day the food has always been the best. The salads so fresh. The selections abundant and the warm atmosphere. Take out or eat in the food is great.

Traveling with two grandsons, one wants pita, one wants pizza! This place offers nice choices of Middle eastern and Italian. After hiking in Coachella preserve, we wanted a little lunch and ended up with delicious food. The falafel pita was excellent, the sub sandwich,called a torpedo here was freshly made with lots of vegetables, the pasta with pesto was good and the Persian salad was a real chopped salad. The food tasted fresh and homemade and authentic. The service was fine and we were glad we stopped here. We asked at the Preserve Visitor's Center for a recommendation..

Staying at the Westin Resort, and was tired of the overpriced food here. Francesco's was in walking distance, so decided to give them a try based on the reviews here. We weren't disappointed!

When we walked in we were greeted with friendly smiles. Ordered takeout, and the staff was very kind and courteous. The food was ready within 20 minutes (we went for lunch, it wasn't super busy, but wasn't empty. And they open at 11 am, not 11:30).

We ordered the mostaciolli, the pastrami sandwich, and a small Francesco's special pizza. They were all delicious and very hefty portions. (The pastrami was out of this world)!

On top of delicious food and very friendly service, the price was also very reasonable. We will definitely hit this place again before we leave!

This is a great little casual cafe. It is a hidden find in a strip mall that is very close to Mission Hills and Westin Mission Hills. It sounds weird that it is a combination of Italian and Persian cuisine but it works. There is a great Persian salad with broiled salmon on top. The veal florentine was very good. The food is fresh and hot. Perfect for lunch or casual dinner. The family that runs the place is delightful and all the people who have served me have been great. Pizza's and sandwiches as well.
