Excellent food and fabulous service. It has a great hometown feel about it, too. Seemingly family run, everyone was upbeat and helpful. We have to come back again and again to try out other dishes coming from the kitchen looked and smelled delicious.

My girlfriend and I went for lunch. We had 2 parmigiana sandwiched. Nothing better for the money. Good service.

We arrived in town late so we missed going to the restaurant we wanted for lunch since they weren't serving lunch at that hour so we went to DiFranco's. There is indoor and outdoor dining and the decor was very nice for what is basically a glorified pizza parlor. My Philly cheesesteak, while very good, was not a true PHILLY... More

Horrible... Horrible.....horribleness. I really couldn't believe what we were given. I had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken and Caesar dressing out of gallon container, my girl got a grilled chicken wrap... Just horrible. Boring and obviously no thought put into it at all. Bill was like $36. I'm by no means cheap... Just all around a terrible meal. Stay... More

They have great pizza but I prefer the veal dishes that they serve. For folks who want outside dining they have a great spot to watch the Litchfield scene. The prices can't be beat in Litchfield and the family running it is very friendly.

We love coming here on a beautiful summer evening, sitting outside and enjoying one of theirs great pizzas. They also have good specials. It's on the green in Litchfield so the ambiance is really nice.

Our waitress did not smile or even act politely during our entire meal. Plus she tried to clear my plate before I was even half way through my meal. She kept coming back every five minutes, five times to be precise and yet when we were finished she didn't come back for 30 minutes. And, another waitress had to be... More

It was an unusually warm October afternoon and we called in here for a late lunch. The food surpassed all our expectations. Delicious soups, a great Philly steak sandwich and a wonderful turkey melt sandwich. Lifted the spirits (and weighted the stomachs) during a long drive!

While in Litchfield we happened to be on the town commons/green around dinner time. This area appears to be the main shopping/dining area. We decided to try DiFranco's. It is not very large, but the atmosphere is very friendly. The staff was extremely efficient. The menu choices covered just about every Italian dish possible. The food was delicious. The pasta...

Description
Difranco's Restaurant in Litchfield is located on the corner of West Street and is the only Restaurant with Outside Dining. The prices are fair and the service is friendly. The food is excellent and at a great price. Our PIzza is great because we make the dough fresh every day and it is a nice New York Style Pizza that is thin.
