Top Notch resturant. The food is fresh, authentic and well presented. The servers are exceptional. We had a difficult time choosing as there were so many delicious options on the regular menu ( which reads like a book) and the specials. Finially we chose a Fruit de Mer pasta dish and a Chicken porcini mushroom dish. Both were excellent. Good... More

This is our second visit to Francoli Gourmet and we are looking forward for more opportunities to dine here. The staff is very helpful, the wine list with plenty of Italian wines to choose from, the singer/performer with a repertoire of Italian songs, together with excellent foods (we tried sea bass, ravioli, seafood pasta). The restaurant is on a busy... More

I found this place by accident since I was not familiar with the area. It is located down the road form Chapman University in OC on a charming roundabout/town square. Great food, wine and desert. Understated service so I enjoyed a relaxing meal. Best mixed green salad with chopped tomatoes- ever. I had the chicken Cannelloni with a great Italian... More

Very disappointing experience to say the least. Took my wife out for her birthday dinner on a Monday late afternoon at 5:30pm. We asked for a nice window table and were told it was for parties of six. That was fine. Then we went to their patio area and proceeded to sit at a table with 4 chairs and were... More

Experience here has been two fold. Food was Fantastic on first visit and okay on second. Great wine list though. Will give it one more chance before removing it from my list.

Our friends recommended this Piedmontese restaurant for its genuine Italian cooking and live music, and we were not disappointed. Our waiter was friendly and had a great sense of humour. We were entertained to 60s music on the keyboard while we enjoyed Italian wine and fabulous food. The starter of garlic soup was delicious, as were the seafood risotto and... More

My husband and I love Francoli Gourmet. The food and service are always the best. We decided we needed a date night, wine, dim lights, live music, so of course, Francoli. We started with the cheese plate appetizer . . . delicious. The plate included 4 different types of cheese, toasts, a balsamic reduction, honey with walnuts, and a fig... More

We were visiting my wife's sister and her husband in Orange. After a museum stop, we parked and looked for a place to eat in the Downtown. Francoli stood out to us because it advertise foods of the Piemonte region of Italy, a place we had recently visited. Our server was a person who often runs the front of the... More

I had a very enjoyable meal in the quaint Orange downtown district at Francoli Gourmet. I had the antipasti and the short rib ravioli. Everything was great. The service was very good and the atmosphere was perfect for a business meal.

This was a nice find for us as we love Italian food. The menu is extensive and the food has not been americanized as it frequently happens. Th past a and risotto selections were very nice and all food items were carefully crafted and presented with care. The wine list is one of the best that we have seen in... More
