Discovered Francesco's earlier this year and been plenty of times since, the carbonara is a particular highlight but have yet to try a disappointing dish! Service is always amazing as well, great Italian dining experience

Fancied spaghetti and meatballs. Francesco brought this out for me and it was beautiful! My 'new favourite' changes on a regular basis. (This is the Porpette with spaghetti instead of sauté potato)

We often eat here as the food is delicious but I forgot how good the zabaglione is. Next time you visit give it a try. Light, sweet and alcoholic, perfect!

Often go here for lunch, jacket potato or something similar and coffee. Main meals are lovely and lots of it. Reasonably priced too.

Another wonderful evening in Francesco's intimate Italian restaurant in Tring - felt like we were in Italy! Excellent home cooked food and great ambience. Friendly and helpful staff and good service. Nothing was too much trouble. Will be visiting again soon.

This is a very quaint and rustic restaurant with lots of Italian atmosphere. I had a pizza that was so authentic I could have been eating it in Italy. Francesco came out and asked me how I would like my pizza dough before he rolled it out for me. My husband had veal, which was succulent and delicious. The portions... More

Lovely meal here tonight as family of four. Authentic pizza, delicious pasta and all served with a friendly Italian flair. It's a very relaxed restaurant and makes you feel like you're on holiday with lovely cosy atmosphere. Enjoy!
