Dinner at Francescos

Very good food and service. Just a little annoying that you can hear the cooks talking very loudly. Other than that it was a good experience. I recommend the Bronzino fish dish. My favorite

As the author of "Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous!" I am always looking for healthy options. I lost 125 pounds and look for eateries that serve healthy choices. Perhaps this may be absurd to find it in an Italian restaurant, which is known for heavy sauces and cheeses...far from healthy! The place has good entrees. The eggplant parmigiana was great. It...

Villa Francesco's is in a odd location right off of Route 31 North but set back. It's also beside the Pennington Post office. They have a fancy sit down restaurant in addition to the small dining area for takeout. All pizza's have a nice crust and some of the toppings are good. Service is nice which is a huge bonus...

My husband and I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. The seafood is very good which is a nice surprise for a small restaurant far from the sea. One of the reviews below must be for a different restaurant because if you sit outside the only thing you will enjoy is the view of... More

I was surprised by my friends for a special dinner nite out. We came to the Villa to celebrate my 52nd birthday. What an amazing restaurant. Decor was beautiful and tastefully done. Looks like Tuscany country side. I was thrilled to see reasonably priced delicious food. BYOB is nice. Filet mignon was fork tender. I got papardella gypsy, Pasta dish... More

They have a few outdoor tables with a view of the river, although it's near the road so can be a bit noisy. Insid is small, but cozy. The menu is limited, but everything is good.

We visit this restaurant at least three times a month and have always had a meal cooked to perfection. The portions are generous. The meals are consistently cooked to perfection. The sauces are very tasty. But the soup of the day is a real treat. I always have the soup of the day.

Stopped here after a winery tour with friends. We were impressed by the place and the menu. The choices were great and once the food came out it was delicious. It is a BYOB and has a very reasonable menu. A must try in the area...

This is a pleasent resturant with a traditional italian style, the food is great and tasty- it is traditional, not hipster Italian, perfect for real Italians to enjoy. The atmosphere is nice, not overly fancy, but not a pizza parlor either. BYOB which I prefer, buy a nice chianti for 15 bucks and enjoy yourself.

This is our first time here. Went for a late lunch and small meal. We ordered a Tri color salad and a grilled chicken Cesar wrap. Since we were the only ones here. We thought the kitchen would be quicker. I guess at lunch they do not serve bread. When lunch arrived, dressing was on the Tri color salad when... More
