Good choice and nice old fashioned resturant atmosphere. Poor points- table cloths could of done with a wash, crumbs and a bit stained. Carpet could of done with a... More

Another wonderful evening at Francesco's. Never had a bad meal or bad service here, always go the extra mile to please. So nice to go to an independent family run restaurant. No minimalist portions here, quality ingredients, dishes cooked to customers liking... nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to next time.

A great little restaurant which is tucked away. The food is traditional in style and generous all set in an authentically Italian atmosphere. Highly recommended.

This is such a charming little place. Owner and his wife truly care about their customers. Great service, excellent fresh pasta, delicious lemon and orange sorbet... we will definitely return the next time we're in the area!

I have been to Francesco 's last weekend with my wife and we are really impressed. Lovely traditional Italian food and the decor looks very original too. We will definitely go again!

For our 30th anyversary my husband took me to Francesco's and I can say that it is a lovely place to get out. Everything looks very...Italian... It is like a little part of Italy in Tring. About the food all I can say is 'perfect taste', lasagne is the best I have ever eaten! If you want to try Italian... More

I liked the atmosphere of the place, really calm and cozy; but the food wasn't of the best. Being an Italian I can most of the times understand if a place is god or not. I wouldn't recommend it to someone that comes to a place to eat and not to dialogue with friends.

I'm a major fan of Italian food and I have tried many Italian restaurants over the years, I can easily say Francesco's was one of the best restaurants I've been to. The atmosphere and design takes you back to old fashioned Italy and the food is just to die for. I have had carbonara pasta with chicken. The chicken was... More

My partner checked TripAdvisor looking for a decent italian and booked a table here. His text to me was, "shall we go somewhere else as it looks a bit grotty?" but neither of us mind that if the food is good so we relied on the reviews. What a disappointment! Let me say from the outset that the atmosphere and... More
