Food was very tasty and cooked to perfection. Wide variety of items on the menu. Service was quick and when food was served hot. As busy as they were I did not feel rushed.

The service and food were excellent. The clients that I had lunch with loved the Lasagna, Salads. This is the 3rd time that I have taken clients here for lunch and All have raved about the food. Chicken Parm is a hit too.

Great spaghetti with good service and atmosphere! Food is served hot and well presented. A variety of seating areas offer room for parties or booths for limited privacy. Bar area is separated from most of the eating area which is a plus!

We have always enjoyed our meals at Da Francesco's...we have been going there for many years. The owners are super people and always so friendly, make you feel like you are part of the family. The entertainment on Fridays when we usually go is great, we love Frank, he always does a great job. A must try.....

As the title says, easily the best Italian in Northern Macomb county. This place is always packed, and there's a reason. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable (for what you get... good Italian isn't cheap), and the restaurant looks nice. I frequently eat on the patio, though the view of the parking lot is... More

We have been there a couple of times, and I must say, this place is the best italian restaurant in the area. Their meat sauce tastes like they use beef, pork and maybe even veal. It's sublime. On our last visit, I had the pan seared salmon which had sun dried tomatoes and shrimp on top. The sauce seemed to... More

Dinner at Da Francesco's was the best Italian food I have had in the US. Great food and great service. I had the veal marsalla and it was very good. Had a party of eight and everyone agreed that all the meals were the best.

We absolutely love this restaurant. The atmosphere isn't all that great; it's very crowded and always very busy, but the food is superb, as is the service. Dollar for dollar, this is the best. My favorite is the chicken parmesan, but every dish I have ever had (and my companions as well) has been excellent.

Da Francesco's hs great italian food at very reasonable prices! I usually get the chicken parmesan. It is really good. They fresh cannolis ( from the dessert menu)which are great for dessert after your dinner or you can order a few to bring home if you want. I recommend this restaurant. It is not an upscale, fancy restaurant. But, you... More
