    This is a family owned business and you can tell that.The restaurants is in residential area so there area. A lot of locals eating there so the food has to be good and great value for money. I would recommend using this app to book a table as we saw a number of people being turned away .simply good food good service and very good value for money.

    Definitely wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. Service was very poor. Had reservation, was waiting for about 25 min , asked for table outside was told it’s booked . Very crowded, waiter was overwhelmed. Tomatoes salad was just cut tomatoes on the plate , grilled calamari was more or less ...

    The best food in Rome! Every time i am in Rome, alone or with my family La Francescana, is a must! Real Italian kitchen with tasty dishes and fabulous pizza! Try capricioza it's my favourite!

    This restaurant was around the corner from out hotel. After walking for three days I wanted a close dinner option. This was definitely a locals restaurant and the food was amazing. Had the mussels as an app. They were as good as PEI I've had at home. I had the risotto scampi and hubby had the carbonera. Delicious. Shrimp ate whole and taste l

    Good, simple food at reasonable prices. The portions are big and it seems popular with tourists and locals alike. Busy on a Friday night - book in advance.

    We enjoyed a delicious meal of pizza, and perfectly cooked filet with green peppercorn sauce, as well as a grilled veal steak. We also had a wonderful ricotta cake with pear and chocolate for dessert. Altogether, the food at Francescana is traditional Italian food done very well.

    Had to wait a long time for the soup and for the dolce (which we gave up on) . The buffet is worth going for as you know what you are getting. When I go again I`ll skip the pasta course and have a secondo instead. Ample portions !

    Went there twice out of 5 days in Rome. The proximity to our hotel and the great food and service lured us there both times. Friendly service and quaint atmosphere. Great aperitif buffet and reasonable prices, no wonder if you are not there right when they open, the place gets full quickly. Highly recommend this place when in Rome but make sure you make a reservation.

    We were very rushed at our meal. We are from Canada and we were there a few times a couple of years ago and we loved it. Not sure what the issue was but it was a big difference. It went from an awesume experience to not wanted.

    We discovered this little gem while staying in Rome 2 years ago. We dined there 2-3 times on our last visit & couldn’t miss the opportunity to dine there again. Really great tasting meals, moderately priced & we loved that it is a family run business. Can’t wait for my next visit to Rome so that we may dine there again!
