Good food. Nice place.

We have been here a few times over the last couple of years, but this year we went for Valentine's Day. Usually restaurants seem to disappoint on special occasions and charge too much for less quality, but Francisco's did a wonderful job. The food is always good here! Service is okay to good.

Every single meal I have ever had in this restaurant is the best. Specifically the penne alla vodka with prosciutto is by far the best I have ever tried. The staff is always friendly - had the same staff for many many years. At one point I didn't come back for a few years due to my job being relocated... More

Can never go wrong with my favorite restaurant. Best eggplant rollentini ever (trust me I eat it everywhere). Fair prices for the amount of food you get, they don't skimp.

My husband and I were visiting family from out of town and decided to eat here. It was elegant and the smell was amazing as you entered. We were the 2nd party to arrive and wondered why but not for long. About 1/2 hour later, there wasn't an empty seat but not very noisy either. Very high quality food and... More

In January we had the repast luncheon for my Dad at Francesco's. The food was delicious and they took really good care of us. Francesco's made a difficult time so much easier for us. We will be going back for dinner soon.

We should have known there was something wrong when there was only 1 table occupied with 6 men on a Thursday night. Had we known what we were going to be exposed to we would have walked out right away. Unfortunately, we sat and ordered and were exposed to a barrage of loud cursing and crude conversation. The group of... More
