Best Home Made Italian Food

Francesco''s makes the best Italian food in town. The service is excellent and the price is reasonable. Chef Francesco always makes some special dishes that are a must to try. We have never had a less than great meal when we eat there. A must if you like Italian.

Wife and I were here for special occasion. Chef Francesco and his staff (and wife), provided us with terrific dinner, great service and flowers/gift that she loved! The food...so many layers of flavor! I could make a dinner just off the hand made garlic bread. We need to be here more often but due to our location and schedules, it... More

Glad to have seen this on Trip Advisor as it is in a fairly nondescript strip mall, but it has a very solid menu.

We dined in Francesco's on the occasion of a birthday after reading all the rave reviews online. It is typical Italian dining in a typical Italian atmosphere with large paintings on the walls and wine bottles in the rack. Menu is somewhat pricey, but in line with other nice restaurants in the area. I ordered a veal marsala which was... More

The food was really good, though the portions were quite big (compared to europe) We had a lovely chat with the Sicilian chef. We went twice in one week.

This is why I love trip advisor. I never would have tried /found this place. I had veal rollatini with bow tie pasta. The pasta was cooked perfect. The combination of flavors was great. The place was crowded for a Monday. That being said the servers did a great job of keeping up. Will try something lighter the next time.... More

This is a great place. WE went on a Sunday evening and it was packed. Clearly a local favorite. Food was good. Everything we orderd we liked. They are not shy with the garlic but very good. Service was friendly and fast. Prices were fair. I would go again. We had the Veal Saltimbocca and it was excellent. The garlic... More

While visiting . We found this little gem. Please make reservations ahead. We had to wait but it was so worth it. Great food and service. Had the best experience and our Spanish waitress was wonderful.everything we had did not disappoint us. Great pizza, the lobster ravioli was also delicious . Family enjoyed .

Outstanding food. Great service. My favorite wine. Wanted a place near Great Wolf Lodge, where we spent the weekend with our daughter, son-in-law & the grandkids. Francesco's was a find. After 8 years in the South, it took me back to my Jersey Italian roots. Molto bene!!!
