Cook pizza and Tuesday night sub special are great to take home for that special treat. It is a small place and can fill up fast, but the food is worth it.

We went to Francesco's on the recommendation of our hotel & TripAdvisor. It's a family Italian restaurant with 1 other location. The service was quick and friendly. The price was reasonable. The food was only satisfactory at best. There was way too sauce on everything and the veal was very tough!

We've dined here often and are always amazed at the quality, quantity and value. The menu is presented is such a great way. All pasta dishes are one price, all chicken dishes are one price, all seafood dishes are one price, etc.,etc. The food has a lot of flavor and is presented beautifully. The basket of parmesian covered rolls is... More

This was our first visit to Francesco's. After reading other reviews we were slightly disappointed. I had the new dish, salmon with pasta.... The salmon was over cooked and the dish was all together dry and not full of flavor. Service started off good, after our food was delivered we never saw Cameron again until we were finished our meal.... More

A group of ten without reservations descended on this restaurant. Time: about 8:30 pm on a Friday night. We were seated almost immediately and there was no wait for a server. Prices were, for a big city guy, very reasonable. A generous pitcher of quality craft beer was only $15 and dinners were also inexpensive. The meals ordered spanned the... More

Good food. The salad was very fresh and my entree was served hot, straight out of the pan. Everything was nicely prepared and presented and the service was excellent. The service was very friendly and the price very reasonable.

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 it was a nice place, if it were... 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).
