Great music and atmosphere. Staff friendly. The food was great. The menu has a great choice of pastas, fish and meat. The dessert menu was great. The waiter presented the desserts on a platter. Hard to choose they all looked so good. We did not have a reservation but managed to get in. They have an outdoor patio which was... More

We had dinner at Francesca's last night and we made a reservation in advance to avoid a wait. The place was packed and we got in right at our 8:00 time. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. The one and only complaint I would have is its a very noisy which could be because they sat... More

This was the perfect venue for a baby shower. The staff was amazing and very easy to work with. They made it so easy to sit back and relax. The food was great, the service was outstanding and discrete. We had appetizers, bread, salad, 2 entree's and everything tasted wonderful. There was an open bar and that was a big... More

Wow...I had my team order Pizza and Wings here and we all really enjoyed it very much. I must say that the Wings were some of the best I've eaten in a long time!

I was at Francesca's last night 03/16/15 with 5 customers. The food was very good. If you like Italian food than this is a place you should go. The Veal is also very good here. Service was exceptional and the prices were in line with nice dinning. I would recommend giving it a try.

Our waiter was fabulous with making suggestions for wine and dinner choices, providing great humor and effiicient serving. The food was fabulous! Salads were crisp and well dressed. Our entrees were all... More

We returned to Francesca's with another couple who had never been. Our server was wonderful from the start. One of the most knowledgable and personable servers we have had anywhere in many years. Bravo!! Started with the Utica Greens which are just out of this world. Dinner was just as good. Deserts were scrumptious and wayyyyyy to big. (If that... More
