Always worth the wait because the food is so well done. I highly recommend getting reservations in advance. Anything you eat here is tremendous.

good food...nice atmosphere...reasonable price...but to exit the restaurant onto state route 51 toward Pittsburgh is impossible...a Jersey barrier does not allow you to travel north...there is no place to turn around...what a shame because this place is worth going to

I loved the food. The salad was served family style and was quite good. The bread was tasty and our pasta was excellent and flavorful. I will return to Francescos.

Atmosphere could be improved. Teenagers often waiting tables, this could be better. But the food is very good. Ultimately, food is what we're going for!
