Tastes like Italian pizza!
We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed the pizza. There were 4 of us and we split 2 large pizzas. It honestly tasted just like the pizza we had in Italy. Very go
od crust and flavorful sauce. There is a ping pong table in the dining area so you can play while you wait for your food. Would definitely recommend this place. more »

Excellent service and delicious food!
I hosted a group of 12 colleagues with appetizers and then pizza. From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff was attentive and helpful. The appetiz
ers (arancini, calimari, and cauliflower) were consumed quickly and my guests kept remarking on how delicious the food was. The pizza arrived exactly at 6 p.m. as we requested, and each one was unique and tasty. We enjoyed the meal and the ambiance. What a perfect place to host a work social! I also bring family here quite often because of the delicious food and drink and the comfortable and friendly atmosphere. more »

Me-oh-My! What a find!
This restaurant is tucked away off Dutton street In
Santa Rosa. We saw a feature story about franchetti’s because it served a thanksgiving meal to victims of the f
ire in October 2017. We wanted to visit this restaurant in support of its compassionate generosity and delicious food. We had a delicious pork dish with mashed potatoes- to die for. I had a beef special that was so flavorful and moist.. Service was wonderful and we plan to return for their delicious breakfasts and brunch.
It was such a wonderful culinary find- you will love it, too

So grateful for Franchettis'!
This place is great for any time of day, alone or with a group, and also for take-out. I think they offer a sufficient range of options and I've had some
really great-tasting food there. I know they're really trying their best to be their best. It's also a GREAT place for a private or company party!! more »

Food is fab! Pizza is wonderful. Good salads as well. Service could use a little bit of improvement. Although our waitress seemed to be trying, she didn’t always keep drinks filled/re-ordered and didn’t bring appropriate condiments for pizza & later coffee, until asked. more »

Group and Family Friendly
We showed up as a group of eight without a reservation. They already has two large groups of 10 each about to be seated. They didn’t bat an eye and hooked us up right
Don’t expect fine Italian cuisine, but you will get good food, comfortable atmosphere, and friendly staff. It is also a spot the locals know about vs the more touristy spots around Santa Rosa.
A few, small tips. They are in small off park, so don’t be thrown off when you pull into the parking lot. Also, their patio is in the shade in the afternoon/evening. So, if it’s a bit too hot to sit in the sun, don’t worry.

Great food, great service and Also great as Event Space & for Private Party.
My wife and I have enjoyed eating at Franchettis' on a variety of occasions, and have never been disappointed in
the food or the service. But recently, I had occasion to discover another facet of its offerings: as a place for a farewell party, I'd never arranged such a event before, and with the help of owner Gesine and Brenda of the event staff, it was smooth, painless & stress free. We had a pretty modest budget, but they helped me put together a buffet of appetizers, salad, pasta and frocmcacia that was (1) delicious, (2) more than adequate in portions (no one went away hungry) and efficiently served by helpful, friendly waitstaff. So, whether you're looking for a tasty lunch or dinner, good wine and beer or have an occasion to celebrate, Franchettis' is definitely a place that won't disappoint. Food is flavorful, with fresh ingredients & very nicely prepared. more »

Not for pizza lovers
This restaurant is for the organic lovers, ie spinach salad. Cubano sandwich was okay. Meat ball sandwich was a gooey mess. Want a good pizza go to SF. You order McDonald st
yle and they bring it to your table. more »

I love Franchettis' Chopped Salad!
I love Franchettis' Chopped Salad! It has lovely greens and crisp apples, not to mention walnuts, feta cheese and chicken if you want to add it. The
vinaigrette salad dressing is just a tad spicy - yum! Frankly, I should branch out and try more things. In fact, I have had Franchettis' pizzas and appetizers. However, the Chopped Salad is my "go to" favorite! more »

Fun Healthy Food
We recently enjoyed dinner with another couple. Franchettis’ German fare was recently featured in our local newspaper, and since we appreciate good Germans and Austrian food,
we decided to give it a try. We made reservations and were glad we did— the restaurant was packed! It’s located in a business area— but don’t let that dissuade you— the decor was bright and comfortable. We were welcomed by a friendly waitress and soon seated. The menu is quite varied, but since it was the Schnitzel that brought us in, two of us ordered it. We were disappointed that they had run out of Spaetzle by 6:30 PM, but enjoyed the generously portioned dish when it arrived with substituted egg noodles and a sprinkling of roasted vegetables in a light mushroom sauce. Another one of our group enjoyed his cabbage rolls stuffed with ground meat and vegetables, and another his Saltimboca made with chicken. The portions were large and we boxed several dishes so that we would still have room for fresh house-made apple strudel with a generous portion of whipped cream. Franchettis’ is also open for breakfast and lunch—we will return! more »

A family favorite!
We come here all the time for lunch and dinner. It's a family favorite with something on the menu for everyone. Many options for those who are gluten intolerant. Their fr
ied chicken is to die for (also gluten free) & they have one of the best gluten free pizza crusts I've ever had! It can be so difficult to find a gluten friendly restaurant, Franchetti’s really does it right.
I love that they have specials (I believe once a week?), it keeps us from growing tired of the menu. I love most of the salads especially during the summer when they have a variety of fresh seasonal salads.
My son loves to come for the ping pong table (and the calamari {GF}), which is a ton of fun to play while you’re waiting for your meal to arrive. Sometimes there’s a stray ball flying so if you are someone who would be bothered by this you might want to sit on the other side of the restaurant.

Our go-to getaway
While the severe industrial design might put some people off, we have made this a getaway place for lunch and dinner. My wife and I rendezvous here when we are out and about. T
he staff is very friendly and helpful.
For a unique time out we recommend Frachetti’s.

The food is great. The wine is great (and great selection!). The service is partially self-serve but the table service is great, too! The staff always make us feel like we're "Coming Home to Dinner." :D more »

Thank you, Franchetti's, for giving our family a beautiful and delicious Thanksgiving dinner. We always host our family's Thanksgiving so losing our home in the fire made the thought of the approaching holiday daunting. Thanks to you and your donors we had a good, reduced-stress day. Thank you for caring so much for our community. � more »

Franchetti's hosts our meet up group, and it is a perfect spot for groups and gatherings. The food and service are great. The portions and prices are a bit too much, but other than that, it's a perfect place to unwind and enjoy a great menu. more »

We came for a free community meal, during the fires, open to all. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and we were treated with love and generosity, like we were among family. The food was bountiful, artisan, and delightful. Thank you, Franchettis'! We'll see you soon, and be returning again and again. more »
