Great old fashioned red sauce place

When we lived in Babylon, we frequently had dinner here. There always a bit of a wait, but worth it. Well, we were back in the area this week, so decided to go back. Well, just as good! Wife had the usual veal Parmesan. I had zuppa Di clams. As always great. Both tender and tasty. Again, only minor... read more

We've been going to Francesco's for yrs. You should make reservations as the restaurant is not large and it fills up quickly bc of the good food and excellent reputation. We had a problem only once when our reservation for 6 was given away as we waited outside! But have to forgive them bc it's local, food is good, service... More

I've eaten at Francesco's about a dozen times. Each time, we made reservations. We still waited 20-40 minutes each time. The food was that good, which is why we never left. However, on Good Friday 2014, I had had it. I specifically made reservations since I KNEW it was a holy day. We brought two other couples with us. One... More

Some Babylonians frequent Francesco's every weekend, and for good reasons. It's homey, friendly and the food is some of the best Italian you will find in the area. This place becomes too easily addictive to those who enjoy good Italian food, but, watch out, portions are large and pounds will accrue!

We were seated immediately. Service was very good. My husband and I shared the calamari as an appetizer. It was good but not great. I had Shrimp Scampi which I really enjoyed. Shrimp were cooked perfectly. My husband had the Veal and once again thought it was good but nothing special. I did appreciate that the two glasses of wine... More

I've been here many times, but I will NEVER go back. I ordered a dish that had risotto in the description. Needless to say I was very displeased when my plate arrived, with white rice on it. When I asked the very old waiter about the change, his reply was that "risotto is rice". Umm, there is a very big... More

I've eaten at Francesco's several times. It's very crowded. Each time I return, I'm hoping to be seated at the time of my reservation. I call early in the morning, ask for a table for 4-6pp at 7pm. Each time I arrive, Jean Ann says, 20 minutes. Really? I have reservations. Last night, I had 7pm reservations and brought two... More

Yes..we found our new place to eat..we will be back soon..my husband loves the thai calamari. I always enjoy the specials..Try them! Glass of wines are $9 but a hefty pour. Martinis are larger than in local places.

One of our favorite local restaurants. Francesco's always has great food, superb friendly staff and a wonderful local charm. If you love fresh fish, this is your place. If you love great Italian food, this is your place. Owners Frank and Laura make this place feel like you are always eating with family. Love it and it's on our regular... More
