Francisca's is a farm-to-table Italian-Venezuelan restaurant from husband-and-wife team. Our rent is very expensive so we can't afford full staff . Chef Manny Torres Gimenez and Katerina De Torres make it happen every day for the last 10 years in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District. The restaurant takes its name from Manny's grandmother, a chef who taught him the value of the farmer's market and a passion for hospitality. At Francisca's, we want to make people feel at home.
