We have been to Della many many times and the food is always excellent. Prices are high but worth it for a nice dinner. But....the attitude of the waiters keeps us from returning. Ask for more bread, never came. Ask to repeat a special, get a hump from the waiter. Ask a question about how a dish is prepared, get... More

Have eaten at Della Francescas often over the past few years. We go here for the more "special" occasions as it has a bit more formal atmosphere than other Italian restaurants locally. The food is always excellent, as is the service. A bit pricey but VERY worth it.

Our neighbor bought us to this delightful restaurant. The food is very good, northern Italy cuisine. The waitstaff spot on. If your looking for a pleasant night out with friends or partner. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I attended a Bridal Shower at Della Fransesca, a couple of weeks ago: I loved the paintings on the wall. It creates a very special ambiance. The food is Northern Italian and it was very good. I had Veal Marsala that made me clean the plate! The served Cabernet Sauvignon was very good also. To end, I must mention that... More

Enjoyed the food and great service but quite a bit of noise coming from the bar on a Friday or Saturday night. Quieter on week nights and better atmosphere with the food and service.

This place has great food but the portions are a bit small for the price. I have been here several times and always have a great meal. Try it you won't be disappointed.

Good service, great food. Nice menu and atmosphere. Worth a trip. We have been there numerous times. Gets busy so make a reservation. The tables are arranged nicely so you are not sitting on top of others.

My wife and I were here with my brother and his wife Sunday evening (our first visit - they had been here before). Other than the food - which was amazing - one of the things that set this restaurant apart is the time and effort they took on the presentation of shared orders (salad and tartufo) - no hand... More

In the past couples weeks we have eaten twice at this restaurant. The decor is very nice; service prompt (to say the least) and the food quite good. So why not 5 stars? There are several things people should be aware of before going. Probably these are no problem for many (look at all the fine reviews), but you should... More
