I love seafood and this place does simple with style. Choice and taste. Wine and people. Next time I need to eat here I will organize business accordingly rather than other way around.

Rieti - a small charming town in the geographic middle of 'Bella Itallia'... in one of the small streets there is a restaurant with the best sea food I have ever had in my life... The concept is simple yet executed to perfection! Simple, genuine food prepared from the best fresh products with passion and love for cooking.

The meńu changes everyday depending on what fresh sea food is available... we always started from antipasti which consisted of variety of sea food / fish dishes: salmon with strawberries, fresh mussles with cheakpeas, fish on rucola, shrimps with homemade pesto, boiled shrimpes with lemon olive oil & champignons etc... Yes all of that served just for antipasti! After that primi - pasta with sea food and after that for main fosh of the day and grilled baby calmari! If only I had a second stomach.

Some people may say - simple food ! And it is exactly righ which for me is a biggest complement because simple food cannot be cheated! When cooking simple dishes every ingridient has to be carefully chosen, fresh and of the highest quality and this is exactly what San Francesco retaurant offers aside from family atmopshere and very home like decore.

If you visit Rome - take an hour drive to Rieti and go to San Francesco restaurant ! The best sea food you can dream of! I am coming back there soon!

Visited the restaurant based on previous reviews and have no regrets at all. The restaurant sign is discrete to the point of non-existence, the name printed on an A4 sheet inside the front door. It is however a spacious, modern and very popular place with locals. This restaurant is all about seafood, mainly shrimp / crab / lobster / mussels / prawns. Choose the mixed antipasti and see huge plates of delicious food arrive in a never ending stream. We congratulated ourselves on finishing when another two plates turned up! After that the pasta with lobster and prawn nearly finished us off, in the best possible way. The main tip here is not to over–order! The house white wine washes this all down very pleasantly.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel because we were looking for seafood. It is right in the centre of town, although down a side street and a bit tricky to find as there doesn't appear to be a sign out front! The restaurant is very simply decorated. The seafood is very fresh, simply presented and delicious. The service was very friendly and personable. We were very happy with our meal and would recommend this to anyone looking for seafood in Rieti.
