Had a delightful dinner with children and grandchildren. There were seven of us and I had made a reservation for 5:30. My husband and I arrived early and we were seat right away.

Very busy place almost any and every time we go. Food is always great and I really love I get soup, salad, and a side of pasta with most dinners. Prices aren't bad either for the good quality of food served.

Wednsday night is free cannoli... More

Love this place and have for many years. The Belcastro family serves delicious, genuine Italian food. Service is friendly and efficient. One of our all-time favorites.

About my fourth visit here. Every time has been very good.homemade bread included with dinners. Tried two different pastas to share. One was with lobster and was great. Enough to have some leftovers for lunch the next day. Only downer was where we were seated. Right outside the restrooms , so constant traffic the entire dinner.

Like other reviewers, we have been patronizing DaFrancesco's for years. Whenever we are making plans for a nice dinner out, we almost always decide on DaFrancesco's. It is the best Italian food in the area. We have recommended this restaurant to others who are now regulars.

As long as they have good food, I'll be there! The decor was alright... There is a bright neon sign in the dining area which is quite annoying and distorts the atmosphere, but the food is so good, I'll be back again with or without it (probably more frequently without).

We have been regulars for 22 years. The food is reasonable. The food is the best Italian around. The service is usually Very good to great. This is a busy little place and a family member is always on site if not visiting tables. they have house wines available on the menu which make for a reasonable dinner with drinks.... More

Da Francesco's is a great "hidden gem" in Macomb County! Their pasta is authentic, the service is great, and the cannoli ...fabulous! I love the Perch Lemone!
