The service was exceptional. The food was great. I was expecting "Italian" food like lasagna, etc. That is not what they serve. No red sauce in sight. It was a learning experience. Everyone agreed that the desserts were outstanding. My husband and I split the butterscotch dessert. It was to die for. Great food if you knew there would be... More

I called Francesca's in the early afternoon on the day we wanted to have a surprise birthday dinner for a co-worker from out of town. Zach, the manager, was super helpful and made the arrangements for 22 of us without any issues. Zach worked with us on obtaining individual bills and the meals were great!

Went here after reviewing many Italian restaurants in the area. The food was great and service very attentive. Highly recommend it for a biz meal or any gathering really. I'm very picky about service and it was terrific!!

Food and service is great, friendly staff and reasonably priced. I like their salmon dish, and love their brunette, I will even order that for dinner some nights as a take out dish.

Meals at Francesca's are consistently excellent. Portions are generous and cover large appetites, or a little extra to take home for smaller appetites. I like the casual, yet festive atmosphere. Service is just right for my liking; attentive, but not rushed or overly slow. I had my retirement dinner in their private dinning room and really liked the way they... More

Food taste and service remain very good at this branch of the Francesca's chain. Their mix of first and second plates is outstanding. Lacks a good mix of appetizers though. You must order a dessert to end your meal. We would visit much more often if they would solve there tremendous parking problem.

We went here for a business dinner. The appetizers and meals were excellent. They can do good Italian! Our service was a little slow. The place has a very nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Always an interesting but short regularly changing menu - great for people interested in variety. Perhaps not ideal for anyone looking for a specific dish or for kids though they'll make a basic pizza for them. Great desserts.

Thank LyleK
