Awesome Italian Food

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

We were very please with the service and the preparation of the meal. We enjoyed a caesar salad, the house vino and dessert. We were... More

Claudia and I have been coming to Da Francesco's for many years and think it is the best in northern Macomb County. Their veal dishes are outstanding and their shrimp and chicken are also excellent. I love their calamari, perch and eggplant parmesan. Look for coupons in The Macomb Daily and remember, Wednesday is Holy Canoli day (free canoli). Service... More

Always outstanding food. I think the price's are fair for the quality of food and the staff is always great. Perfect for small group celebrations or just the two of you.

This was outstanding & we are so glad we choose this for our selection. We come here frequently & love their pasta with delicious meat sauce + their Italian... More
