Francesco’s opens second branch


    Francesco’s—the home of classic and authentic Italian cuisine and San Juan’s best kept secret in Manila—finally opened its second branch in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), ready to serve their pastideliziosi to the mini-city.

    Named after its spirited Italian chef Francesco Rizzo, Francesco’s offers a wide selection of palate-pleasing traditional and rich regional cuisine from the Italian peninsula that will certainly satisfy the taste buds of BGC professionals and foodies alike.

    MFT Group of Companies, a private equity firm that targets family legacy businesses, is proud to be part of Francesco’s expansion into the bustling, world-class and thriving BGC.

    “We, at MFT Group, hoped to serve as the catalyst for the expansion of Francesco’s.

    It is a well-loved family business that we truly believe in. And we feel honored and grateful that Chef Francesco trusted MFT Group to bring and share his restaurant to another location that can’t wait to get a taste of his delicious offerings. And as Francesco’s partner, we remain committed to bring Chef’s culinary creations to more prime spots in the metro,” said Eric Tan, chief operations officer of MFT Group of Companies.

    For Francesco’s BGC branch, it took on a more casual, cosmopolitan look by merging the urban setting of the mini-city and rustic feel of Italian dining. It features a glass façade and a striking wall art to create a modern ambience, while incorporating the brick and wood interiors of Italy, highlighted by the warm hospitality of its staff.

    “We take absolute pride in our highly acclaimed food, enhanced by the warm and inviting ambience that our restaurant provides, making us a preferred venue for business and social gatherings, especially in this side of the metro,” said Chef Rizzo.

    Francesco’s is famous for its own take on Southern Italian dishes that are deeply rooted in traditional and family-owned recipes.

    Diners may conclude their Italian gastronomic experience with Francesco’s sweet bestsellers.

    Francesco’s Kitchen BGC is located at the ground floor of BGC Corporate Center, 30th St., Taguig City. It is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 12 midnight.
