We come to Da Francesco's often because the food is so delicious and the prices are very reasonable for all that you get. I would have to say it is a high end restaurant with moderate pricing. We took some friends here for dinner who live in Naples, Florida and they know good food, they loved the food at Da... More

Met with friends for lunch. It's plain outside, traditional, low key comfortable and cozy inside. The service is prompt and courteous. The restaurant was filled with a locals and families. It was pleasantly busy but relaxing. The shrimp and pasta, with Cabernet wine was very good, and reasonably priced. Good experience, we will definitely visit again!

We frequent this restaurant quite a bit. Last time, Feb. 18, 2017, we made reservations so we wouldn't have to wait for our table. Quite surprised and unhappy to find out that we still had to wait 20 minutes. They were seating people that were walk-ins in-between folks with reservations. The food is good but they need to honor reservations... More

We have been here several times. It's family friendly, high quality, and you get plenty of food for a decent price. Soup and salad are very good. The pasta is excellent and the chicken Marsala and the filet are excellent. It's fairly busy and a popular spot but it's tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall. Must... More

My wife and I recently had dinner here on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. After the original disappointment of being seated 35 minutes after our reservation, the food made up for the wait. We both had veal parm which was as good as it gets. Great quality veal at a VERY reasonable price. Although I... More

I made reservations early today upon their opening, for our 6:30 p.m. party of 6. Our table was literally 10 feet away from the door-less kitchen, where the dishes were continuously thrown into the busing bins, causing very LOUD clanking, etc. Being Super Bowl Sunday, the place was quite empty so we couldn't understand why we had to sit on...

We had another enjoyable dinner at Da Francesco's and wondered why it had been so long since we had been back. Great authentic Italian cuisine in a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. On top of the great food our waitress was wonderful and surprisingly the busboy who I would guess to be high school or early college age was very... More
