Take the Cannoli: Francesco's Opens at BGC Corporate Center

Take the cannoli. And the pizza. And the pasta too. Francesco's has all the classic Italian favorites, each one prepared the old-fashioned way. And it's now open at Bonifacio Global City...


Since the days he headed the kitchens at Edsa Shangri-La's Paparazzi, Italian Chef Francesco Rizzo has seen the local culinary scene grow and blossom. The timing just seemed right. The passionate Italian then opened his very own restaurant that bears his name, Francesco's, serving dishes he grew up with for a uniquely authentic Italian dining experience.
