Weird Wednesday fact: Squid Ink Pizza! Somewhere in Japan, this weird pizza was created using squid ink instead of tomato or pizza sauce, and topped with prawns, and chopped squid. Want a taste?

Italian food… not only sinfully scrumptious but also deliciously #FILLING!

We bet that this #deliciously funny poem by the late Shel Silverstein, who obviously shared our love for #Italian food, made you hungry for the real thing. So what are you waiting for? Come visit us today! @RistoranteVillaFrancesca

Did you know that Washington was an ultra-successful liquor distributor in the new country? He made rye whiskey, apple brandy and peach brandy in his Mount Vernon distillery. Celebrate his birthday and President’s Day with a hearty lunch or dinner at Ristorante Villa Francesca!

Lunch is the most important meal to most Italians. Try our Fettuccine Con Gamberi for an authentic and hearty Italian meal.

My worst experience of 2014. Parked my car in a valet space in front of the restaurant in the pouring rain. No valet in sight. The hostess let me in the front door and I pointed out that my car was there and I was not bringing my coat inside. She sat me and my husband with our 10 friends. Decent meal. Came up and my car was missing! Hostess never looked for us for valet hook up. The City of Boston towed my car. No-one notified me that this was happening. 1:30 am, soaked to the bone, and $438 later (including cab fare, towing charges and Parking ticket) we finally got home. There were 3 possible police stations and no-one could tell me which one. Hostess played dumb but finally felt bad enough for me that she did give me Boston Valet phone number and owner did help narrow it down to 2 stations in about 45 minutes. Cab to Police to get a release, cab to EAST BOSTON to get to the tow company which was hard to find. Remember now -- we do not have our coats or umbrellas on December 6th in drenching rain -- we walked across the street twice and finally spotted it behind with only one unlit sign. SO I call the owner, Thomas Salmeron who contradicted himself in telling me what I should have done = 1. I should have given the key to the hostess and 2. The hostess cannot take car keys that it is up to me to wait for the valet who I never saw until after dinner when my car was already gone. Owner disavowed himself of any responsibility, showed no compassion or offered no consideration and then hung up on me. What a guy! What a restaurant! After going to Francesca's for 20 years, I will never go back and neither will my 10 friends. An absolute NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!

This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The seafood was all chewy and not cooked with much thought (inexperienced chef/frozen seafood?). Also, our waitress, as kind as she was, was kind of clueless when it came to anything. We were talking about picking out a bottle of wine...let me just say if you are going to work at a "Fine" cuisine restaurant you should be able to pronounce Cabernet. All in all, I would never recommend this, and we almost left the hotel for being recommend this restaurant. I ate someplace else in Little Italy two days later and it completely redeemed the whole trip.

Amazing restaurant! The Penne A La Vodka was the best I've ever had! All at reasonable prices. Great service as well (Thanks Rebecca!). Everyone who visits or lives in Boston should know that this place exists.

DONT WASTE YOUR HARD EARN MONEY!!! They would make you order expensive food or humiliate you. The lobster is a total failure, the chef should consider quit cooking. POOR service and waiters gossip about customers in front of others. *There are a lot of restaurants in Boston are way better than this. Good luck.

DO NOT WAIST YOUR MONEY UNLESS YOU LIKE BEING BERADED BY MANAGER/OWNER WHEN GOING OUT TO EAT. Worst dining experience I have ever had in my life - the "manager/owner" literally argued with my party in front of the entire room of guests because they gave our table/reservation away after having had it booked for two weeks and waiting 45 minutes to be lied to that our table was never ready. The most unprofessional, rude, and obnoxious staff I have ever dealt with in my life. I worked in the industry for 5+ years serving and managing and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had. This place deserves negative stars for the way they treated myeand the rest of my guests. Appalling really that place like this gets any credit from anyone whatsoever. Worst dining experience of my life - would never even recommend using this place to go the bathroom.

Very pleasant place to eat! Family friendly and have booster seats. Straightforward a Italian food. Reasonably priced compared to restaurants in this area.
