For my money, this is the best Italian restaurant in Williamsburg. The sauce, the pasta, the veal, the meatballs,and, Oh Yes, the bread.....all very good to exceptional. If you are looking for lavish surroundings, this is not the place for you. It has a small, neighborhood feel. Small enough for the chef to always be in the kitchen making sure... More

We had a very good lunch. Prices were average for Williamsburg. The decor was surprisingly pleasant, not at all like a restaurant in a strip mall. The wait staff was ver attentive and there was a large selection of wines.

Found this restaurant on Yelp while visiting Great Wolf Lodge. We wanted to go somewhere close and the kids were craving pasta. We had no idea what we were in store for. Upon entering the restaurant, we were very impressed with how tastefully decorated it was - very bright and beautiful. We began with an appetizer that was artichoke hearts... More

We truly enjoyed this restaurant twice. First time we ordered Tortellini alla Panna with a Caesar Salad. Excellent. The bread is also delicious. The 2nd visit we order pizza to take out and the Margarita was excellent. Highly recommend.

We were in Williamsburg, VA for the weekend and decided to return to Francesco's. The waitress, Lily was fantastic. I have a food allergy, so I was careful in ordering. Franco, the chef came out to visit us and describe how he would cook our food so as to avoid any of the allergen. The hospitality is great. It is... More
