Where the ones who know, go... A good friend came into town this weekend to visit my SO and me. We grew up together surrounded by great Sicilian friends and families - so our standards for good Italian food are pretty high, and Da Francesco's cleared the bar easily! The three of us wanted to start with a good fried... More

We've been here a few times and always receive great food and service. We've tried several different entrées and have been pleasantly surprised. Truly Authentic Italian feel. Only negative is sometimes you have to wait for seating.

Consistent quality and service. Love everything on the menu. I usually go back to spaghetti and meatballs. Gnocchi palomino the best! Try anything. Canolis are superb and fresh 100% of the time. I also had my sons rehearsal dinner here, again great service and food quality. You're missing out you if have not dined here.

The food was delicious. The cannolis to die for. Everyone in my party commented that they would definitely return again. This was our first visit

Each time we visit this restaurant it's always delicious, lots of food and it rarely has a wait because it has three sections with plenty of seating. Priced moderately with great service. They had a special and will also make it upon request, it's the Linguini Gamberi Buon Anno - one of the best Italian dishes ever!

Great Italian food. Very family style atmosphere. Server was fantastic. I try something different all the time. Never have been disappointed. My favorite is dish is the chicken florentine! Very good wine selection as well.

This is one of my husbands and I's favorite restaurants. It's a cute place and the food is homemade and authentic Italian. Everything is good.

enjoyable Italian fare. Service is good and reasonable prices. Somewhat small and usually very busy. I would recommend reservations.

My favorite Italian restaurant in the entire US (and I've been to NYC). Menu options are plentiful. Staff is very accomodating and willing to modify your meal if you request or ask for opinion if you can't decide. Very friendly and adds another level of enjoyment to your dining experience. They do offer a good selection of gluten free options.... More

This restaurant is so quaint and cozy and has a real authentic old Italian rustic feel to it. The food is wonderful. I have dined with just my husband and also with a large family group. Never have I heard of anyone being disappointed in their food. It's just always top notch. Service is always right on. They also have... More
