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.

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.

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.

Four of us had dinner here on a busy Thursday evening. We arrived at 6pm and by the time we left, every table was filled. (Thus lots of noise and even hard to hear our own conversation). Between the four of us we had: the shrimp Alfredo ($10.95)(5 medium shrimp in delicious Alfredo sauce- wish there had been more shrimp);... More

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!

We have eaten here twice during lunch meetings for my office. The staff is always super friendly and the service is fast. Their lunch bar is awesome, pizza, pasta salad, fresh salad, garlic bread...everything is fantastic. The atmosphere is always clean and neat. The prices are great for the quality of food. My friend had a salad with salmon that... More
