Very busy quaint old style friendly Italian restaurant. Menu was a little limited but serviceable. Service was very good. Nothing really special food wise, but prices were very good. Food quality could vary depending on item or how busy they are.

We went there for lunch. They have an "all you can eat" buffet, but EVERYTHING was cold, the pizza, soup, the breadsticks were so hard they were inedible! I'll NEVER go back, for lunch, dinner, or anything!

Very good place, inexpensive and food is good, but not excellent. I found the pizza to be good, but not the best in town. Still, we like the atmosphere, the service is great and generally a very nice place to have a good meal.

We enjoy eating at Francesco's. They have excellent Italian cuisine. Their menu has a lot of variety. I have never had a meal that I haven't enjoyed.
