I can see why she chose it! This was fine dinning, the staff, the dinning room, and the food were all excellent. If I didn't live... More

Stuffed pizza was very good and a cheaper option if not looking not wanting a $30 entrée. Kids meals not on menu, but spaghetti, ravioli, cheese pizza and chicken fingers satisfied te 4 younger ones in our party.

I've been to Franchesco's on several occasions and have never been disappointed. It's upscale yet casual. It's beautifully decorated and has the largest most beautiful chandelier I've ever seen. They offer a main dining room, a great bar area, outside patio and "Franks Room" that occasionally has entertainment. The food is Italian but the menu is rich in variety. I've... More
