I have been to D'Franco's twice. The meat sauce was full of flavor. The Pizza is second to none.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone

Ordered the bruschetta, it was ok, kind of bland. Isn't bruschetta suppose to be garlicky and flavourful? Salad was wilted, pasta was overlooked, tomato sauce was runny and the seafood in the pasta (shrimp, squid, mussels) was all rubbery - way over cooked. Just stay away from the pasta.

What a great place. We counted on the Tripadvisor reviewers and were extremely pleased with the result. This is not a hole-in-the-wall pizza joint. We had a D'Franco Special Pizza and enjoyed every mouthful of it. The price was $15. Other patrons around us had pasta dishes and seemed to be enjoying those, too. The pizza had a thin crispy crust and was loaded with healthy fresh toppings which were also cooked until slightly crispy. An exceptional pizza. I didn't know how pizza should taste until I had a piece of this one. Service was fantastic. The servers know the bar offerings and menus and were attentive and friendly.

Open only about 5 months when we visited (twice) they serve pizza and pasta.
Staff are very friendly and do a good job at providing good service.
They do need to have a look at their Ceasar Salad recipe, needs improvement.
Too many croutons and salad dressing was blah!
