Nice meal with good service

Everyone in this group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered. Everything, food and service was excellent. What more would one want in a restaurant?

We've eaten at Francesco's a couple of times; our daughters are students at Bridgewater College. The staff are always friendly, and the food is always good. I had a Stromboli the last time; it was quite tasty. Enjoy!

My friend had a salad with salmon that... More

When recently visiting Bridgewater, we had a late lunch in Francesca's. The menu was extensive, serving classic Italian fare as well as interesting burgers. We each had something different and none of us disappointed.

Our family regularly visits Francesco's -- my favorite part of the meal is the house salad and the house Italian dressing. The salad is always crisp and delicious--and just the right size. They accommodate our special request for dairy-free bread, too. Our favorite entree is the spaghetti with meat sauce.

There were five of us and some of us got pastas, others sandwiches. The homemade bread, salads and pastas were all great. The sub portions and homemade chips were huge. ...and what was really surprising was how inexpensive the food was for the quality. Atmosphere was really neat. This was our first visit and we will definitely go back.
