We were on our way to another restaurant and walked past this place which looked inviting. Great atmosphere and nice service. Food was fantastic esp the pistachio covered tuna. Nice and reasonably priced wine list and generally really happy place to be.

This place is a "revisitation" of the original Focacceria San Francesco, that is in Palermo. Great food and typical Sicilian dishes, very well cooked. You cannot leave this place without eating the dessert!

The most horrible experience. It was an absolutely disaster! A terrible cooked meal which made the fish become plastic. The place looks nice, but the taste was about to kill me. You cannot get a meal that bad anywhere.

If possible I would rate 0 of 5, but have to go with 1. The food was badly cooked and not worth eating as well as overpriced. The service was pretty poor. One of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had. I would pick McD...More

I was in the Antica Focacceria with my son, for a dinner out. The place is very nice, both inside and outside, close to the renovated (aesthetically speaking) Italian Parliament. We had a very nice and warm welcome from Alfredo, a brilliant neapolitan waiter. He'...More
