CLOSED until shelter in place is lifted. Please stay safe. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.
John and myself are doing fine, Thank you!. We are hanging out with John’s Mom, Sherry, Phoebe the Lab, and our cats Pepper, Alfie and Braxton. We spend our time no other than cooking with our Family. The cookbook: “From the oven to the table” by Dianna Henry, is our Nieces Giulia’s newest cookbook. Creating this family moment. Looking for the next recipe to make, is a really great Franchetti tradition. We are thrilled to now have time to do so. We might be able to get through a couple of books. You might even see a few menu items. By the way, page 206 is my favorite.
Welcome to FRANCHETTIS’
Schnitzel and Noodles and Crisp Apple Strudel, these are a view of our favorite things…
John, Gesine and their team, would love for you to Join them and experience the Italian German Fusion, which is also known as Sued Tirol or the “Alto Adige” Region in Italy. They are rounding out your experience with rotating German Beers on Tap, Italian and German Wine.
ITALY, we loved skiing and eating in the Alps of Northern Italy. Eating through sunny Tuscany enjoying pizza in Napels. Gesine’s roots started in and around Stuttgart, Germany known for Schnitzel, Spatzle, Potato Salat, and all things Pretzle.
John and Gesine established Franchettis’ during Mardi Gras of 2016.
John Franchetti, a third generation Sonoma County native, met Gesine in Anchorage, Alaska. Gesine comes from a German family with a tradition in restaurants. Together, they partnered in life and the restaurant scene. His formal training and experience in New Orleans with Emeril Lagasse, adds to the little surprises in his flavors. Gesine brings countless years of restaurant and catering management and John brings out the amazing flavors in their food.
Their vision of a casual eatery serving high-quality food has many people surprised. “You just don’t get food like this in a setting like this” is the comment heard most. They create simple food with minimal ingredients. This is how they like to eat and entertain themselves. Good wine, beer, and cocktails will perfectly round out your dining experience.
