Taking great pride in providing customers with amazing food has been the hallmark of Francesco since it opened. The owners come from four generations of Italian chefs who were extremely passionate about their cooking. They’ve tried to capture that passion and authenticity in every dish that leaves Francesco’s kitchen.
Many of the items on the menu come from recipes that have been handed down through generations. Everything is prepared fresh. Tomatoes, olive oil and flour are the heart and soul of Italian cuisine, and Francesco imports these ingredients straight from Italy. The head chef comes from a long line of experienced chefs and is trained in authentic Italian cooking. Once you’ve had one meal at Francesco, they guarantee you’ll be back for more!

Not bad but not the best. Long delivery time and mediocre food
Posted 2 years ago by ROBERT D.
Francesco's has the BEST pizza on the Upper West Side. I sometimes make the cab drop me off at the restaurant instead of at home! The personal pie is the perfect size and delivery time is NEVER long at all!

I guess most reviews here are very accurate! They do have great pizza, but when it comes to ordering online, they seem to do down from 4-5 starts to 1-2 stars.
I eat there at least once or twice a week, and i love their pizza. But, every time i order online they seem to make the worst pizza ever. I even write a comments on my orders, and ask them to cook the pizza properly, but they seem to not read the comments.
Theyre a great place, but from my experience in the food business, they will go downhill very soon if they dont pick their customer service up, and their quality too!

The best of the west side eats and I've lived here 40years! Also was a crew leader for the commerce dept and that's my census on the easterly

Francesco has excellent pasta, always cooked to perfection. I love the Penne con Salsiccia e Broccoli Rabe followed closely by their Linguine alla Ciccio. Two thumbs up.

Be careful when ordering from here! They won't read special instructions and I received my pizza with half the cheese and toppings on one side having slid off the pizza. It's not rocket science. Pizzas must stay flat. They have not learned this.

Flavorless, floppy crust pizza, garlic bread that doesn't taste like garlic. There are better options in the neighborhood.

Pizza is SO good. New neighborhood favorite.

I was really excited when I saw pasta carbonara on their menu made the right way (with eggs and not with cream). However, when it arrived, it was basically spaghetti with chunks of scrambled egg, which is gross. I called to complain but the person I spoke to was trying to convince me that carbonara is supposed to be made like this, which is just flat out false and makes them look like they have no idea what they're doing. Very disappointed.

We love the pizza at Francesco's, the best on the Upper West Side!
Posted 3 years ago by Judith D.
The food is always fresh and delicious. I especially enjoy the grilled salmon and their fantastic minestrone. Their salads are large and full of tasty vegetables or cheese.
They have excellent delivery time. Since the atmosphere in the restaurant is rather plain, I enjoy having the food sent in.

Accepts order then closes without delivering. Doesn't even call to let the customer know. Hope this scummy place closes down.

very nice baked ziti, just rigt seasoning, hot and chees~~y!!
baked eggplant parm is very good too, huge portion for both, and salad comes with baked eggplant also very good!!

Pricey for pizza, but great classic NY slices. Fast delivery.
Posted 3 years ago by Elyse S.
Delivery took an hour, which is what the originally estimated so no complaints there. I went with another reviewer's recommendation on the margherita pizza. What I received was the strangest margherita pizza I had ever seen. The cheese looked like a white sauce spread on top..not like fresh mozzarella. I asked for crispy crust and it was doughy and chewy. This place must be really inconsistent. Probably the worst pizza I've had in NYC.

I was craving an Italina hero and this place did the trick!
Posted 3 years ago by Caroline Z.
I almost didn't order from Francesco's because of some of the negative feedback, but I'm SO glad I did. First and foremost, the delivery was prompt. The portion size for the baked ziti was enormous (well worth the $15.50), and the garlic bread was toasty & delicious. I will definitely be ordering from these guys again!

Pasta Fagioli outstanding

Great stuff huge portions to. I always order when I want Italian
Posted 3 years ago by Danny W.
Calamari terrible, ordered Marsala, terrible as well. Mozz sticks the only thing good on the menu. Way overpriced. Never write reviews but with all the great Italian on the uws, this is quite bad.
Posted 3 years ago by paul s.
I received the wrong delivery and when I called to ask if my order could be corrected, the manager would not correct the order and hung up the phone on me. I had to get a refund through my credit card company. I recommend you find another pizzeria.

Delivery Pizza was terrible. Thick doughy crust. Bad tasting sauce. Bad experience!!!
Posted 4 years ago by Jason O.
I've ordered chicken parm platters from here 20 times... usually thick chicken breasts with plenty of cheese and sauce. This time, thinly sliced chicken which wouldn't be used in a Lenny's sandwich. It was terrible...esp for $20. PLEASE let me know when you've changed back to real chicken.
Posted 4 years ago by Ben S.
Chicken Parm amazing! I was ordering from another place thinking it was Fracesco and boy was I wrong. very large portions to!

Ordered delivery. Extremely average pizza. Took me back to memories of high school cafeteria pizza.
Posted 4 years ago by Kristen B.
Hands down my favorite place when I just want good food fast. The veggie pizza options are great - they put TONS of broccoli/spinach on their slices. Delivery has consistently been really fast. The people who work their also seem genuinely nice - efficient, too.

The dinner items are absolutely amazing. The pasta bolognese is incredibly delicious. Its a must have.

If you have ever walked by this place its a small hole in the wall joint and it turns out great food- great pizza but also great italian dishes - quick and easy delivery
Posted 4 years ago by KEVIN K.
This pizza is a staple Upper West Side spot. Reliable quality, fast delivery (in the area) and manages to taste the same every time you order it. The crust has olive oil which makes it very filling. Even if you're hungry, you can only eat 2 slices. One suggestion - tell them you want the crust CRISPY. No toppings necessary. Onions are a good option as they are very sweet. We've ordered other items from them and I'd say, everything is a bit on the heavier side. The garlic bread is made with real garlic -- very strong so not for the weak. Overall, we are happy to be frequent customers at Francesco's.

love the seafood rissoto
Posted 5 years ago by maria c.
The pizza is good,but the other entrees are great. From the baked clams to the broccoli rabe... to the eggplant parm. You can feed a family of four on two main courses and it's all good,old fashioned pizzeria-style Italian food.

Ordered the veal and chicken marsala. Both were swimming in oil and had absolutely no marsala wine or flavor. The meats weren't even flour coated. I called and complained and they said everyone loves their marsala. Yeah right...I asked to return one and they said NO. Bad move in my book I used to order at least once a week from them. Chicken was not clean and had cartilage on it. GROSS all in all.

I have ordered many pizzas from here. Normally a 4 * I would say. This time was took 1h and was very cold and the toppings all slid off to one side. I phoned them and they rushed a fresh one round in 20 mins.
Posted 5 years ago by Jon T.
They were so incredibly rude on the phone. After an hour went by and my food hadn't shown up I called them. They told me there was no order received even though it was clear they had received it and had sent me the confirmation email. I protested and they basically told me to 'take a hike'. I called seamless who confirmed that they had received the order and must have been lying to me because it was near closing time. The Folks at Francesco's are liars and do not order from them! Seamless was very apologetic and gave me a $10 discount for a future order which I will NOT be using at Francesco's!!

The food is psuedo-Italian at best. I remember ordering a rice ball from them once & getting some disgusting mess instead. Also the service is rude, slow, & they'll charge you more than the agreed upon price from the delivery website & expect you to still pay for it. The last time that happened to me I called them to ask them why the price wasn't the same as the one on the website. They left me on hold & never picked up again. Also they're only 5 blocks away from me but always take over an hour to deliver the food. I never order from them now.

Ordered a few times. Good Pizza 1 out of 4 times you order. Delivery has taken +1 hour a couple times and im within a 5 block radius.

Pretty good pizza and pretty good penne with vodka sauce. The menu has a wide selection and its not that expensive compared to other places in the area.
Posted 5 years ago by Pamela P.
Pizza was fine, but they brought us a zita pizza instead of the penne vodka we ordered. Took awhile for delivery, so I decided not to call to try and get the one we actually wanted.
Posted 5 years ago by Watson T.
The baked ziti was very good, and it was HUGE! I think I had it for three seperate meals.

My husband and I love the simplicity of of well made Margherita pie. It can be pretty hard to find especially on the UWS. Well look no more, Francesco Pizzeria accomplishes this with the perfect combination of cheese, marinara sauce and basil on a thin crust. If you like Margherita Pizza I'd give it a try.
Posted 5 years ago by Michele O.
My dinner arrived promptly and the portion was very generous. It was delicious! It will be a favorite.
Posted 5 years ago by Janice B.
(read the past reviews - and don't agree at all).... we started ordering from Francesco about 2 months ago - and love their food. Food arrives quickly (and we're not so close to them!), tastes fresh and cheesy - with very nice sauce. Haven't strayed much from pizza with toppings (they make extra thin if you ask!!), but have tried their ziti and its well made. We think they do a super job. - Steve Bochner

Poor quality food, really disappointed. Even the pizza was bad!
Posted 5 years ago by victoria E.
Their pizzas are the very worst I have ever had in this city or anywhere else. The pizza arrived soggy and wet. The crust was undercooked and tasteless. I paid $27.00 for a pizza we could not eat. First time I ever dumped a pizza in spite of the fact that I was hungry. That's how bad it was.
Posted 5 years ago by costanza b.
Food is usually pretty good (Pizza doesn't travel well, stick with the pastas and entrees). Last order -- delivery estimate was 30-45 minutes, but actual time was 70 minutes. May have to find another choice.

Four stars for pasta dishes. Three stars for pizza.
Posted 6 years ago by Lauren C.
The vegetable specialty pizza is not what's listed. Listed as mushroom, olive, pepper and onion the actual pizza came with peppers, broccoli and spinach. I had also asked for tomato instead of peppers which didn't happen either. The manager was incredibly rude and did not correct the order. Papa Johns it is.

It was great!
Posted 7 years ago by Pedro D.
Seems like a good deal for the price until you start eating the pizza. Terrible crust and sauce that isn't much differentiated from ketchup.
Posted 7 years ago by Mark H.
I've ordered from them a couple of times. WAY better than many other places. Real mushrooms, for a change.

The best pizza on the UWS bar none.
Posted 7 years ago by Richard L.
Delivery did not include any essentials such as paper plates, utensils...
"Large Pizza" is actually quite small, and quality is sub-par for New York City.
Dominoes does a better job!!!

Slightly pricey, but that's the neighborhood, I guess. Great pizzas and pastas.
Posted 7 years ago by Rahul J.
No idea how this place got four stars -- the prices are nothing special, the food wasn't delivered especially quickly, and the pizza was AWFUL: not enough sauce, not enough flavor, too much crust, sort of mushy and undercooked and flavorless. Will never order from here again.

I'm not sure why they get bad reviews, Amazing pizza!!!! So delicious.
Posted 8 years ago by Andrew F.
Worst pizza I've ever had in the city. The crust is extremely doughy and not crispy on the bottom at all. Reminded me of DiGiorno's frozen pizza. The people who work there are not friendly either. The cashier lady didn't even crack a smile when I greeted her to pick up my pizza. Also, they overcharged me on my pizza - $3.50 for mushroom topping, this should have been $2.00. Not sure how they could get this simple detail wrong. I definitely won't be ordering pizza from here again.

Best pizza on the UWS. Been ordering from these guys for years. Great additional to seamlessweb, finally! Chicken and Eggplant parm heros and extremely tasty as well.
