This is a great local place and Georgio treats both new and familiar customers great. It's hard to say whether Grandma's pizza or Capri is better, I love them both. The eggplant rolatini is also delicious. If you have any dietary concerns, he goes out...More

Francesco's is a staple in Highlands. Food very good. Home grown herbs and spices. Friendly staff and owner. Recently, and for the first time ever, one entree was not included with the delivery order. We called and they sent it out immediately and said there...More

This little gem has been one of our favorites for over 20 years...I liken it to having dinner with an old friends in their dining room/kitchen. Girogio (owner) is well known in the community and makes everyone feel special. I cannot praise this establishment enough!!

Last year we stumbled upon this little place after a long bike ride, ate 2 delicious Italian entrees in the outdoor seating area. We've been back 3 times. Incredible home cooking! Giorgio and the staff are great. Try the tira misu for dessert.

Georgio not only makes fresh sauces for his pasta dishes, he grows the ingredients in the adjoining lot!! Sit in the side area, a tented, open air terrace, and gaze at the rows of tomatoes, basil, and giant sunflowers!! The pizza is delish, but the...More
