Surprisingly good at a value price

Basic Italian fare, simply presented in a family-friendly atmosphere. But, it's done well and the food is very good! You can spend LOT more for worse food.

This is a fine Italian restaurant, which also serves American food. Substantial portions & excellent prices. You can't go wrong with their wide range of menu choices. Service is also great.

We went there to celebrate a birthday meal. The server was prompt and very well informed about the menu. The pasta portions were very generous and the sauces were just right; not too bitter nor too sweet. It felt like a solid home cooked meal at someone's home! The place is by no means swanky or upscale. It's a very... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. We went on Wednesday which is all you can eat pasta day, and cannoli day (total carbocide). The focaccia in the bread basket was awesome, as is the season dipping oil. We split some fried calamari which was good but not great. I prefer more seasoning in the batter and also... More

This place has been here for a very long time serving solid Italian Food. It appeals to the masses as the portions are big and the prices are not ridiculous. The soup and bread were very good and both our pasta dishes were okay. I felt the Marinara was pretty thick and heavy but had good flavor. This place isn't... More

The best thing at this restaurant it the dipping oil that goes with the bread. The Alfredo was just ok. It could have used more seafood in it for the price. - The whole restaurant is just one square room and the kitchen door at one end.

This quaint Italian restaurant is one of our favorites-skip the Olive Garden. Homemade garlic bread is wonderful. Used them to cater a small at home reception and everyone LOVED the good especially the chicken marshals.

This isn't a bad restaurant, it just isn't a good one. The food is average, but it is priced as if it were really good stuff. The inside is very plain, and the menu is very limited. Besides, Da Francesco is only a 3 minute walk south down Van Dyke, and it is fantastic! Make the walk.

I've been dining here for over a decade because it is such a great dining experience. The wait staff are wonderful. The chef commonly greets during your meal to ensure the meal is to your liking. The angel hair Bianco Romano is my favorite meal and the egg plant Parmesan is a close second. The atmosphere is intimate. I can't... More

You cannot go wrong at Di Fratelli's which is near Da Francesco's. Very good. Also, good prices. Excellent pizza and pasta dishes.
