Ristorante Villa Francesca Restaurant Review

: This popular yet touristy North Ender drips with old-world charm off the beaten path of Hanover Street. The starchy menu includes dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, lobster ravioli and fettuccine Alfredo. But one may also find oysters, filet of sole and rack of lamb all in a beautiful dining room with hand-painted murals. Service can be brusque and the food isn't earth-shattering, but it's a fine pit stop when lines are long elsewhere. For dessert, don’t miss the homemade cannolis with creamy ricotta filling and mini chocolate chips, which go nicely with a cappuccino.
