In the authentic Italian tradition, we select our simple, whole ingredients and combine them by hand with heart, using the time-honored method of open flame cooking. We utilize the intense heat of our wood burning ovens to lend unique flavor to our food. From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.

This was one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. We enjoyed a lovely night before V-day dinner and was treated to an amazing restaurant experience. Loved it! Bragged to about 20 people how good it was. Particularly the best thing was the service and the Veal Sicilian, the veal literally melted in my mouth. I wouldn't... More

I'm a hardcore NY cheese pizza lover usually, but when I crave to gourmet I go to Francescos for this specific pizza; Campagnola. It's not cheap. About $20 for one large eggplant with fresh basil, but it's soooo good.

The food is fresh and the preparation excellent. This is where we take visiting family and friends not only for the food (our main reason for going anywhere), but for the fresh, contemporary yet comforting interior. The fish is fantastic. The service professional but comfortable. We are so lucky to have this restaurant just a short drive from home. And... More

My family was in restaurant business and I know how tough this business is to try to keep every one happy. Once a restaurant understand good food and reasonable prices, we should not rate them base on waitresses or employees. Francesco understand real gourmet home cooking meal. I had excellent experience. I cannot stand franchise boring restaurants. This place gives... More

When I'm in town I normally eat lunch at a specific restaurant. I sent a text to friends who frequent that same restaurant and they replied that they were at Francescos and invited me to join them. It was a short distance from my location, so I went. I'm glad I made that decision. The choices were many and the... More
