Just had the best meal in a while at Francesco’s! Ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna Spinach Salad with the in-house Italian dressing. Wow! My tastebuds were SO happy!! Great service!

This is definitely a restaurant that you can't judge by it's exterior. Our wattress was very attentive and friendly. The garlic knots they give you are enough on their own to fill you up. All the food we had was great (pizza, calzone, soup).

Burgers, pizza, wraps, stromboli... you won't go wrong at Francesco's in Bridgewater. Nice atmosphere, good food, and happy hour brews. Moderate prices and nice staff. We have experienced longer wait times once or twice but nothing too excessive.

Very busy quaint old style friendly Italian restaurant. Menu was a little limited but serviceable. Service was very good. Nothing really special food wise, but prices were very good. Food quality could vary depending on item or how busy they are.

This is one of our family's favorites, but when they are so busy I think we'll just go elsewhere. Not as relaxing as I like. The food was good. My husband thinks they've changed their recipe for the spaghetti with meat sauce since it wasn't...More

We went there for lunch. They have an "all you can eat" buffet, but EVERYTHING was cold, the pizza, soup, the breadsticks were so hard they were inedible! I'll NEVER go back, for lunch, dinner, or anything!
