Francesco

Francesco Review

With a privileged elevated view of a quiet residential street in Palermo, Francesco serves the city's finest Peruvian cuisine. Start your evening with what must be the tastiest, frothiest pisco sour in town, then move on to one of the many fresh fish appetizers. Naturally, this restaurant does wonderful ceviche dishes that perfectly blend citrus juices with subtly spicy flavors. The main courses run the gamut from fish to pasta to meat. A highlight is the piqueo criollo, a salmon and shrimp platter with fresh tomatoes, onions, and peppers. For dessert, try the suspiro de limena, a delicious custard-like dessert topped with merengue and cinnamon. The owners operate two similar namesake restaurants in Lima and Miami, and know how to satisfy an international clientele, which shows in the modern, but welcoming dining room and in the top-notch service.
