Emacs always shows the file name.  Since texinfo doesn't produce Info
files with cross-references where the file name between parentheses
refers to the current manual, so cross-references displayed by Emacs
always refer to another Info file, and the file name between parentheses
is always visible.

Like this?

 appearing in a separate box (tool tip) or in the echo area will show
 the full cross-reference including the file name and the node name of
 the cross reference.  If you have a mouse, just leave it over the
address@hidden cross reference above and watch what happens.  If you
+cross reference @xref{Top,, Overview of Texinfo, texinfo, Texinfo:

 always like to have that information visible without having to move
 your mouse over the cross reference, use @kbd{M-x visible-mode}, or
 set @code{Info-hide-note-references} to a value other than @code{t}

I don't know what was the intended way to turn off fontification in Info
after removing the variable `Info-fontify' (this is not explained
anywhere in the documentation).  But deleting `turn-on-font-lock'
from `Info-mode-hook' before calling `Info-mode' should do this.
Or invoking `M-x font-lock-mode' once will do the same.
