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

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. From the special of the day which was crab ckaes topped with shrimp in a delicate cream sauce to several different and interesting burgers, we found... More

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.

The food was great but I have NEVER had a quick meal here. Not bussy tonight (Tuesday) and it took 45 minutes to get two subs and a plate of chicken nuggets. Kids bouncing off walls and no waitress in sight. Plan to park it for awhile if you go here." JALISCOS down the street is comparable in price, always... More

We were camping in the area and came here for dinner after seeing positive reviews. I was under the impression it was of a Italian restaurant and not a sub and pizza shop. I should have read the reviews more closely, but didn't so that is my fault. I ended up ordering pizza, which was very good. They do not... More

A group of us traveled to Bridgewater for an event at the college, and decided to eat in town before, picking Francesco's because of the generally favorable reviews. (We admittedly were a bit cautious because although it's number one in Bridgewater there aren't that many places there.) This modest little family restaurant certainly exceeded our expectations. They have an extensive... More
