Great little local Italian restaurant! Food is consistently excellent! Specials are terrific, but even the Italian dishes on the regular menu are great. Best Chicken Parm anywhere! Eat in or take out--both are quality. Nice, friendly, and attentive staff! Prices are reasonable--specials a bit high but that's how it is all over.

Had a fabulous Saturday night dinner with friends. Wife had veal, I had chicken francese, other couple had Ribeye and Filet. All came with potatoes and vegetables included. Started with calamari and fresh mozzarella as appetizers. Finished with crème brulee, NY cheesecake and another dessert with sea salt caramel. Good service, good food, good company!!

Was at this restaurant for a private party. The food was ok. it wasn't anything spectacular. The portions were very small as well. Service was out, but waiter messed up a few orders on our table. Friendly staff.

I was at a party recently at Francesco's. We were in the private room upstairs, and the staff was wonderful.They couldn't do enough for us. We were served buffet style, and the meal consisted of green salad with a delicious dressing, fried calamari which was pretty tough and a bit gummy, chicken francese which was quite good. The veal dish... More

I had Sausage Parmigiana. The sausage tasted like sausage I've never tasted before. Not sure what it was made of. Wife had Sausage & Peppers. She said it was really dried out. Come on, that's no way to serve sausage & peppers. And where were the onions. I would not go back.

Been on their email list for over a year and was looking forward to finding a good italian restaurant close by. Got three entrees to go last nite. The veal saltimboca was ok. Not really worth the price but it was ok. The ribeye was served swimming in some oddly flavored juice. Steak shouldnt be served unerwater. Not very thick... More
