Here are five of the most popular Italian food specialties from our menu:
Cozze Alla Marinara: Appetizers are a delicious way to start a meal and to discover what flavors you enjoy. Our Cozze Alla Marinara from our appetizer menu features mussels sauteed with fresh garlic, tomato sauce, and white wine.
Gamberi in Salsa Rosa: If you’re looking for an appetizer to share around the table, give our Gamberi in Salsa Rosa a try! We serve this cocktail of large prawns with vodka aioli sauce for a tasty appetizer that everyone will want a bite of.
Ravioli Primavera: At Francesco’s, our homemade pasta is our specialty. For our ravioli, we start with squares of handmade pasta filled with zucchini, funghi (mushrooms), and cherry tomatoes. We then cook our ravioli to perfection and serve them in a rich and flavorful cream sauce.
Fettuccine Granchio: Our Fettuccine Granchio is the perfect choice for seafood lovers. We serve our tender, homemade fettuccine noodles with Dungeness crab meat and cherry tomatoes in a pinot gris reduction. This pasta dish is sure to become a favorite!
Grilled Sausage with Mushrooms: Aside from pasta, we also make our own special Italian sausage in-house. Our grilled sausage with mushrooms features our homemade sausage grilled to perfection served with mushrooms, seasonal vegetables, and potatoes.
