My husband started with the mussels which were very flavorful but they were a little overcooked. I had the fried calamari to start which was delicious! Our main courses, my husband had the manicotti with a side of the house meatballs. He really enjoyed his dish but he didn't like the house meatballs. I had the tortellini Bolognese. Very heavy!...

Francesco's was quite awesome. I looked at my options on Trip Advisor and my daughter and I decided to try out this italian restaurant. It was very quiet on a Wednesday night and there was only one waiter present. However, he paid very close attention to us and ensured we got all we needed. The food was sooo awesome. I... More

Awesome food!!!! Great service! My son, husband and my son's girlfriend ordered the chicken Parmesan, and I ordered the lasagna. All of the meals were excellent! We also had calamari for an appetizer and it was great as well!

After a long day of shopping at the outlets, we were looking for a place to eat dinner before heading home to Richmond. We stopped at Francesco's and were immediately greeted by Francesco himself. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, the wait staff is friendly and accommodating and the menu was simply amazing! My mom had the linguini and clam... More

Our family's recommendation came from the Great Wolf Lodge. We arrived, all 12 of us, at 9:15 pm and were greeted by the owner. After glancing over the menu, the very descriptive entrees were delivered to our table with every expectation met! The meal was the BEST authentic Italiano that we've ever experienced! Even though the restaurant closed at 10:00... More

My wife and I went to dinner for our anniversary while on vacation. Francesco's is a great Italian restaurant with very authentic and fresh dishes. Almost everything is made fresh. The meal that my wife and I got was a specialty of the chef. Neither of us were disappointed. It was one of the top Italian dishes I have ever... More

My first time here and it won't be my last! My friend suggested pizza. We were able to customize to our liking without a problem, although we had to get two mediums instead of a large for that particular kind. It was excellent, reminiscent of restaurant Little Italy in New York. The owner greeted us, answered questions and made us... More

Francesco's is my families favorite Italian restaurant. We eat here often for lunch and dinner plus take out. Always feel relaxed and enjoy everything that we have chosen from the menu. We all love Chef Francesco's meat sauce and meatballs. They are very addictive. The portions are large and I never mind for a little take home. The soups are... More

I had lunch at Francesco's yesterday with my family and it was by far the most flavorful Italian cuisine I've ever tried in the Tidewater area. I have tried all the REST and after lunch at Francesco's, I can say that I have tried the BEST. To read the menu alone was worth the trip. Every bite of my eggplant... More

My family members and I stopped here while on vacation, and we almost left because we didn't communicate with each other well on how hungry we were and exactly what we wanted out of the meal for that evening. We were all glad we didn't just leave. Don't get me wrong; the food on the menu looked spectacular, but none... More
