Risotto with seafood

This seafood risotto recipe is infused with a number of fresh herbs, imparting remarkable flavour into the risotto rice base.

Franciscus Restaurant uses shrimp, mussels, clams and seafood that is in season to make up the risotto and we like it.

Mixed fried fish

The mixed fry of fish, shrimp and squid is one of the great classics on the restaurant's guest tables, which boasts a glorious experience on how to prepare everything that comes from the sea in one-of-a-kind dishes.

To obtain an excellent frying it is necessary that the fish used have more or less the same size and also that they are rather small so that, even with a short cooking, they can cook perfectly even inside.

Mixed seagrill

The grilled fish is a mixture of sea made up of fish, molluscs and crustaceans that are properly prepared, seasoned and put on the grill to cook.

At the Franciscus Restaurant, fish is one of those specialties that makes you want to come back a second time, and then another. There is a special fish grill. It is a grilled with cuttlefish, swordfish, prawns or scampi and other seasonal fish, with a side of mixed salad.

Grilled T-Bone with vegetables

One kilogram Florentine Steak (T-Bone steak) served on a hot stone plate with vegetables.

The Florentine steak is one of the finest cuts of meat that can be cooked, the queen of the embers, to be cooked with care and attention. In her homeland, Tuscany, she is considered the real queen in cooking on the grill. The steak has the classic T-shaped bone with tenderloin and sirloin. The right thickness is 4 or 5 centimeters, generally a Florentine is suitable for two people.
