This 19th district Italian restaurant is a popular venue for locals of the outer district, but plenty of the urban crowd has been venturing out to Francesco recently, as they’ve got word of the delicious fish, pasta and, of course, pizza, being served up at this legend of the 19th. In summer, Francesco is packed (especially on Sundays) with people enjoying their Italian cuisine in the sunny garden. In winter, the cosy candle-lit interior holds a warm atmosphere, added to by the chimney and the smell of fresh pizza being shoveled out of the oven. The pizza selection is stock standard, bar a few house creations. And for 1€ extra, you can get your pizza with a wholemeal base.
Be sure to try: the Summer Bowl drink with your pizza if you turn up on a summer’s day. They also serve a mean grilled octopus if you’re so inclined.
