Beautiful

The garlic knots were amazing, the setting is quite intimate and delicate, beautiful. The server wasn't able to answer a couple of my questions, and didn't bother to find out the answers for me. I didn't care for my chicken fettuccine alfredo, it tasted as authentic as marie callender. All in all... read more

We love Francesco's. The food is fabulous and they have wonderful servers. I have a hard time trying different selections because I love the house special chicken cardinal. We have shared the experience with many friends and we have never been disappointed.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We go there at least once a month with the whole family. But there was a problem tonight--I had to keep waving my hands over my food to keep the flies away!!! Our waitress was very good (I guess I should have complained about the flies).

My boyfriend and I were looking for a last minute place to eat after a music festival. We stumbled upon this restaurant and are so glad we did! Not only were the prices reasonable, but the portions were large and the food amazing! Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a classy dining experience with authentic... More

My husbanf and I fell in love with this place. One time we decided to start counting how many times we have been here and lost count. The food is delicious. We've tried everything on the menu by now and every dish is amazing. The prices are crazy low. I don't even want to go to any other Italian restaurants... More

Eight of us were traveling in the area and we all decided Italian food would be nice. We were seated quickly and the bar was busy for happy hour. When the waitress was asked about certain food items she struggled with the answer,but did not offer to find out? She was very unsure of herself. We waited way too long... More

A group of us from a nearby town has now eaten twice at Francesco's. We had reservations both times as we were a largish group. Our table was ready for us when we arrived, and we were promptly seated. Service was attentive and friendly. The food at Francesco's is delicious! We all selected different entrees from menu and all enjoyed... More

From seating to serving to closing out a check, the front of house staff is clueless - almost to the point of being comedic. Thankfully, the kitchen staff are on the ball.

Ya gotta love America! A Salvadoran family owns and runs this Italian restaurant. The food is very good and the prices are outstanding. A great value with excellent, friendly service. We eat there regularly.

This is a wonderful establishment in Bridgewater, VA. The food is excellent and reasonably priced and if you get to the sleepy little town of Bridgewater, you must try Francesco's.
