The food and service were great! We had six adults in our party, everyone ordered different meals and we were all happy with the flavors and satisfied with the portions. Our waitress was friendly and attentive with refilling our drinks, and our meals were brought out quickly. We will be back! We had dinner reservations. Francesco's is located in a... More

Seriously some of the best tasting food we've had. Thought service was a bit slow and too much verbal upselling, but the food was SO good I wish I could go back tomorrow. Clearly use fresh ingredients and have a talented chef.

I rarely write comments, but this restaurant deserved mine! It was one of the best places I have ever eaten. The food, price, and service were perfect. Even my husband who has been a restaurant owner forever in the NY and DC area liked this place very much! Francesco, keep up the good work! I will visit you the next... More

My husband still not feeling like going out when we arrived. Staying at the Lodge. I wasn't that hungry but thought Italian would be easy to order as take-out. (We had our own wine in room). Checked trip advisor and chose this one. It was perfect. His steak and cheese looked and smelled wonderful; he could barely eat half of... More

Excellent food, good choices. Unpretentious, friendly atmosphere. We did not have to wait for a seat in this smallish restaurant. We were well served and constantly attended to. The food was hot and flavorful.

We went to Charlie's for some antique shopping yesterday and stumbled upon Francesco's for lunch. The ambiance was great, service was stellar, and food was fantastic. My four year old loved the kids spaghetti with meatballs, and I thoroughly enjoyed my chicken piccata. Others in my party raved about the calzones, calamari, and antipasti. We will definitely return.

great dinner. Do not be fooled by the shopping center front. It was fabulous and we love Italian. Had the puttanesca. His name d had vegetarian something. Kids ate spaghetti. All was good! Only downfall. Wine was overpriced per glass for the brand. Great environment!

We visited Francesco’s Ristorante on a Sunday night and the restaurant was about half full. The way you enter the restaurant makes one feel they are going to a 1920’s speak easy. You come in the main entrance and meet the co-owner at the front door behind the cash register. You tell him you are there for dinner and he... More

Four of us had dinner during the holidays. The salad was crisp, fresh and delicious. Two of us had the Vegetarian Capellini, drizzled with flavorful olive oil, artichokes, olives, dried tomatoes and lots of parmesan cheese. The third had Veal Parmesan and the fourth had Veal Marsala. Garlic toast came with the salad…so good. Tiramasu and cheesecake for dessert. Our... More
