We went for dinner here last week & thoroughly enjoyed our meal. They had a special for the day of lamb chops & a filet with mushroom sauce which was delicious. 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

Every time we go it's excellent. I love the atmosphere, the wait staff is always fast, fun an friendly, and although the food... More

Nothing but great comments about Da Francesco on Van Dyke north of 22 Mile Road. Variety of veal dishes are excellent and the pasta is perfect. Love their calamari and salads and like the fact you get "soup AND salad with almost all meals. Wednesday is holey canole day (free canole) and look for their coupons in The Macomb Daily.... More

Love this place. Wait staff and owners are so friendly. Food is always excellent. I would suggest the Traverse City Salmon. All entrees are well worth the price. If you like wine, house wines are half off on Tuesdays.
