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.
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

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.

Better than restaurants in the centre of Bardolino We ate dinner twice at Franciscus during a holiday in Bardolino. It is a pleasant, spacious place with a singer providing background music. The prawn cocktail is served on three shells with lettuce and is a generous portion. The sea bass is excellent. Puddings are just 4 euros each. Complimentary fruit drink to start and choice of limoncello, grappa or lemon sorbet drink afterwards. Excellent!
Amazing food even more amazing staff We have visited this restaurant two years running. Franciscus' was the first restaurant in Bardolino that we visited and on our first trip we loved it so much we went back for another evening. The staff there are exceedingly friendly, the food fantastic and the service top notch. The main roadside terrace is fantastic for warm evenings but the main patio restaurant and the inside restaurant are fantastic too. Cant wait to see you guys again next year.
Nice! We visited here 3 times in a week and found the food to be very nice and waiter service great .... along with live music .. I would highly recommend it !
Nice surprise :-) I was on holiday with my family and we chose this restaurant owing to the atmophere and the music, while we were walking. We ordered pizza, grilled fish and apetitezers. The quantity and the taste of food were good, the service pleasant and the owner was very nice and a singer! We received also an aperitive and the sorbetto for free: they were included in the service! Good relationship between price and quality.
