Franchesco's is nice for a celebration dinner. Excellent red sauce and great service. They also have great pizza. Fun lounge on weekends with live entertainment, and the patio in the summer is a beautiful place for a drink or dinner on a warm evening.

Francesco's is becoming our go-to place for carry out pizza and salad. The pizza and especially the special salad (with plenty of pepperoni, shredded cheese, artichoke hearts, green peppers, and other goodies --along with a REALLY YUMMY Italian dressing) are SO good! ! Oh, and we are big fans of the garlic bread as well. Also, if you're looking to... More

Had such good food and service, I'm not sure what else to say. Had the tuna which was absolutely first rate. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. What a delicious and delightful evening. Thanks, Benny.

My wife just wanted to try something new and came here on a whim. We were blown away by the every aspect of the experience. The service from Javier was great. The bread was delicious. The calamari was perfect, the soup amazing and dessert and espresso was to die for. The only so-so thing was the main entree. I got... More

I took some clients for dinner. We each had a drink and the mozzarella appetizer. The appetizer was served in an escargot tray -fine, but it was not pleasant. The butter or oil from cheese saturated the bread and it wasn't very good one of my guests ordered one of their signature cocktails, again, not good. I ordered the Sea... More

We then attended a 4th Annual... More

It has been a while since we have been to this place, I don't know why we have stayed away so long. They have and outstanding menu with some very nice choices, they have a friendly staff and very good drinks. We were there for a special birthday and all the dishes were very good.

Venue was utilized to host a fund raiser. We had an excess of 220 attendees. The servers were amazing and very accommodating. The group was very satisfied with everything the restaurant had to offer.
