Went for lunch with a friend and it was better than expected. The bread was rustic on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Salads were really good. We both had salmon (which... read more

Went for lunch with a friend and it was better than expected. The bread was rustic on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Salads were really good. We both had salmon (which wasn't on the lunch menu) and our host (he was very nice and accommodating) gave us preparation options. We also asked the origin of the... More

Good food, great service. Waiter took time to let us enjoy bread and appetizer before ordering. Food came out very quickly. Very nice night out with friends.

Good food, a bit pricy, service was pretty good, good cocktails. Italian specialities are quite good, have not tried anything else.

If your vacationing, you can fine more interesting/exciting/foodie restaurants, but this is probably more for the locals than travelers. Don't get me wrong, we happen to be locals and we love going to this place - they're very consistent in their approach, attitude, service and food. Very nice decor for a chain - contemporary and unique. The service has always... More

The food at any Francescas is always to die for. However, the service at this location is incredibly slow. Everytime we ordered with the waiter it was 20 minutes until it was filled and it was not busy at all. This is not the first time it has happened here. My favorite location is the one in Frankfort. They have... More

This place has it all: good food; great prices; and fabulous atmosphere! I had the caprese salad and cheese ravioli - both were fabulous. Also, it is conveniently located and easy to secure a reservation (same day with short or no wait). I will definitely be returning!

We had a nice lunch at Francesca's, the staff was friendly and the food was good. We live about an hour from Francesca's so we don't get out there that often but I would definitely go back when in the area.

We were very disappointed. Prices are high for the quality of the food. We went there with my husband's sister & her husband. My husband's family is Italian and w4e know Italian food. This is not it! We will not be going back.

We were in town for one night and decided to try this Italian place. Meatballs were on the appetizer offering and they were fantastic. The meal was great and the service was wonderful. All 4 plates ordered were perfect.

I brought my family here for dinner. We all ordered different items on the the menu. None of us could finish the food because it was so gross. I will never dine here again.
