About this Business
From Our Editors
Villa Francesca is truly a family-run restaurant; Marguerite Suppa and her daughter Francesca oversee the daily operations. They hand-pick as much produce from local vendors as possible in order to craft a menu of classic Italian fare, such as parmigiana dishes, calzones, and pastas. Just off the dining room and visible to patrons, a row of brick ovens churns out pizzas that were named the best in the area in 2009 and 2010 by Charlotte Magazine.
Since 2009, the restaurant has hosted the Take a Slice Out of Cancer event, with appearances by local celebrities, including players from the Carolina Panthers, who sign autographs and prepare defensive schemes using pepperoni slices on the outdoor patio.
