Fresh made cannolis

This Italian eatery is so homemade that it is hard to decide which meal you should order. The food is fresh and the service is friendly. The atmosphere reminds me of Italy with its portico windows and atmosphere.

THIS is the Italian restaurant that EVERYONE wants in their neighborhood. Casual enough to drag three or four generations of a large family for a big celebratory meal, and quaint and moderately elegant enough to take a date and make a good impression. The food is consistently good, and the quality of service makes everyone know they are happy to... More

A friend and I were in desperate need of some GOOD Italian food and we found it! I got linguine with white clam sauce. I make this dish at home so although I was a bit skeptical I had to try it.

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.....
