We visit the Trattoria once a year in December, as it's one of my Mother's favorite restuarants, as she is a local in St Francis Bay. I ordered the salmon pasta and was not impressed when I found a hair in the food, and I also found it a bit dry and bland. The other meals seemed better than mine,... More

We just visited Trattoria San Francesco. Everything was outstanding: the food (we had pizza, pasta, meat and fish), the ambiance, and the service (owner Stefano personally stopped by our table on a Sunday evening). A great experience!

We've been here a couple of times during our visit of SFB. Stefan is a great host, the service staff is attentive but not annoying. The food is a good variety of italian cuisine, the pizzas and pastas are very tasty and cooked to the point. But the special treat is the peri peri chicken liver -we loved it! The... More

There were about 30-40 people at Trattorias- including a kiddies birthday. Saw only one waitress - therefore service was a bit tight.The owner/manager was also helping out.

We came in from the beach (so were very casually dressed). The restaurant was welcoming and you can watch the golfers chase their balls around while you eat. The food, (pizza and pasta) was very good. Children are welcome, (even slightly rowdy ones like mine.)
