Formerly a town restaurant called "Eat", this one did a makeover several years ago. They now serve an Italian and American menu and are open for lunch. Their business is brisk, and the atmosphere is very nice for visitors in this small town. They've always been known for their fantastic pies, and continue that tradition.

This is one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. They have the most amazing bread that they make on site to go along with their olive oil for dipping. The entrees are very generous in size and an amazing every time. Wish I lived closer

We were celebrating an anniversary and as I had been to Francesco's a couple other times shortly after they opened (both times having the antipasto salad) I suggested we go there for dinner since my husband had never been there. I had gone to their website to look over the menu, and decided on the pasta primavera as the menu... More

Two friends and I got together for a lunch on a weekday recently. They were pretty darn busy at noon. We all ordered burgers, with either their homemade chips, or onion rings. They cook your burger to your specifications. We all loved our meals. Excellent food, good service, pleasant atmosphere, nice decor, nice menu, fair prices, decent parking. Highly recommend.

Stop here almost every time on our way up north. All the selections are excellent. From the authentic pasta dishes to the BEST pizza and sandwiches. From Casual luncheons to a more formal dinners there isn't anything on the menu that isn't delicious. Beer, a large selection of wines and a full bar for your favorite cocktail. Fresh made dishes...

Friendly, and helpful waitstaff. Relaxed yet jovial atmosphere. Food quality has been excellent every time we have been there. Every dish is my new favorite. There is plenty of food. I always take part home. Love the starter bread and dipping oils. Excellent wine choices. Very affordable prices.

The first time we had eaten there, didn't know what to expect. The waitress was good and the food was great. I had steak very tender and more than I could eat. My husband had liver and onions he said it was very tender. They gave us a dessert since it was our anniversary. Will go again.
