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!

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.

We had a fantastic dinner at Villa Francesca and would definitely recommend it as a five star place!! Our waiter was very charming and funny!! He made some wonderful suggestions since it was our first time there. We had the caprese salad and the baby spinach salad, which were really great. We shared two appetizers which were equally as delicious! Main course: lamp chops and a filet mignon-both were cooked to perfection. The entire meal was magnificent. The food, the service, the ambiance...it was just a great experience and one that we'll remember!!

Poor restaurant experience- the North End ambiance is appealing, but this restaurant really deterred me from wanting to explore any others in the area... To begin- the greeting hostess was rude and rushed us into the restaurant before our table was ready. Our waiter rushed the process and did not even ask for drinks before immediately asking for our orders. Our main dishes came out in the middle of our salads, making it an awkward moment where we had to exchange unfinished plates. At this point, we reminded the waiter to take our wine order. The wine was of not good quality and he poured the wrong wine for diners. At the end, we asked to split the check and it came out not evenly split. By this point, we were so dissatisfied with the WHOLE dining experience, that we left surprised how this restaurant can maintain business with OK food, POOR service, and POOR attention to detail. I ONLY recommend this restaurant if you are looking to pay for overpriced dishes and poor dining service.

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.

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.

From apps to salad to entree perfect. Service amazing. Best Italian we have ever eaten. We am started with the caprese salad ( mozzarella omg!) amazing. Then on to eggplant parm. Delicious. Husband is vegetarian didn't have an issue finding something to eat.

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!!!!!!!

Really good food !!! I've been to Villa Francesca quite a few times and I have never had a bad experience. You can't stop eat spaghetti pesto and you don't want it to end .. I don't know what that cheese has in it but it's not like any other cheese you'll try... I loved it!!!

. Bad service. Slow food took 30 min to get app and 45 to get main. People that came after us ate and was getting their check. If the food was good maybe was worth the wait but it was average olive garden might of been better.
