Francesca’s Vicinato’s classic dining room’s white linen tablecloths and framed photos of the old country complement a traditional menu of authentic Italian dishes that rotates almost daily. Past menus have included tender, fluffy gnocchi bolognese with homemade potato-flour dumplings resting lightly in a smattering of rich tomato meat sauce ($14.99), and salmone alla fresca, a grilled salmon filet balancing on a platform of bright grilled asparagus ($21.99). Stomachs enrolled in the intergalactic anti-wheat club can opt for a gluten-free meal, which includes options such as linguine alle verdure—a hearty portion of sautéed quinoa linguine snaking through a forest of buttery, earthy wild mushrooms, fresh cherry tomatoes, and smoky eggplant ($11.95). Patrons can pair entrees with a selection of Italian and Californian wines ($7–$10.50/glass). During the winter months, Francesca’s Vicinato offers complimentary valet parking for customers’ wheels, from sedans to roller skates.
