Francesco's is a lovely little family restaurant with really friendly staff. This is real Italian food, not like the pale imitation you'd get at a high street chain restaurant. We both had pizzas and they're the best pizzas we've had outside of Italy. Absolutely delicious.

A wonderful experience, food was very nice and authentically Italian. Huge portion sizes and the service was quick and very friendly. The best pizza I have tasted outside of Italy and better than a lot I have tasted in Italy!

We were in the area delivering a canal boat to Cowroast Marina - we stopped in on our way back to London. Archetypal Italian family run business. Like the good old days. Had alfresco lunch outside / owner and wife good value for humorous exchanges. Now been twice in a year. A must if you are in Tring. They were even playing Volare!!

Been here a few times no problems. But tonight my mother in law, husband to be and my husband went out for dinner. Smaller portions then usual. When it came to paying, we got told we had to pay cash as card machine not working. Yet when I came out the toilet I watched her take a payment by card under the till. When we questioned it she denied it. It's a job I do for a living, she's full of rubbish, we shall not be returning again. All they want is to put big payments through as cash and pocket it.

Stay away

To get such a high rating they must be doing something right (no.2 in Tring as I write this). We booked, for a Friday evening and it seemed quite vital to do so. Some passers-by were lucky and got seated, some were not.
Francesco is the host, a server and the cook, ably assisted by his wife. A top team who are quite obviously very experienced in what they do. The service was very good and personal. Not quite what you'd get in a chain much of the time.
The menu is reasonably extensive and has a good range of dishes in each category. The prices are quite reasonable, as are the drinks. The portion sizes are also good.
The inside setting is very 'bistro-like' in relation to its decor and Italian painted scenes. It will seat in the region of 30 people and, as last night, a great astosphere.
If you like the Italian 'chain restaurants', then give this a try. Our 3 courses and a bottle of prosecco came in just a slither over £60. Very reasonable.
We cant wait to go again so, don't miss out, give it a go today.
