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

Francesca's offers authentic Italian fine dining in the heart of Syracuse! The restaurant has a great wine menu, excellent service, with a casual bar area for relaxing before and after the meal. The neighborhood is just OK but don't let that fool you. Francesca's is worth a visit!

Seriously, the food is so good it will leave you stunned! I wanted to make out with the crumbs on the floor the food is so good! I am one of those people that answer the question - where is the best steak in town - with the response "at my house" because I am a steak snob. No longer...the... More

Every visit to Francesca's means a delicious Italian meal, with great attentive service also. The chicken franciasse is the best!
