Service and atmosphere very good. After reading the previous reviews re: the food, I guess my expectations were high. My husband had the Eggplant Parmesan and I had the Eggplant Rollatini which was very good and a good portion. My side of ziti with sauce had no taste and the garlic rolls were served warm but dry with very little... More
I will definitely be going here again. Just ate at Francesca's for the first time in quite a while and I love the menu, the wine and the service. I am not an Italian food lover by nature but this experience proved there's more to Italian cuisine than what I am used to at most restaurants. I have to eat... More
We had a lovely lunch today at Fransescas. The service was top notch, the room comfortable, and the food delicious and of a good portion. We had chicken parmigian, chicken milanese, and lasagna and all were much enjoyed.
Francesca's offers great service and excellent Italian food for all taste of the Italians cuisine.

My adopted kids took me here for the Fathers Day buffet which was very good. Nice antipasto, shrimp cocktail, roast beef plus all the Italian and American sides and desert. The food was excellent and the service better than most places in Gainesville. Saw several other parties I knew.

Overall food was good - sausage wasn't my favorite but the sauce was nice. If you want higher class Italian go here, if you want more family friendly or cheaper check out Napolatanos.
the service is great we have had lunch witch was fab dinner was excellent salads are to die for the seafood salad is great eggplant parm is great you will love this place
