Really surprised about this place. Deffinitly two steps above Olive Garden. Being my first time here, I could not make up my mind. Our server suggested trying one of their combo plates. So I got the triple pasta samplier. Pasta Alfredo was the creamest I have ever had. Lasagan had its own superior favor. The chicken parmesan was not dry,... More

My wife and I have had lunch on two occasions at Francesco's and both experiences have been outstanding. On both occasions we had one of their lunch specials and both times the dishes exceeded our high expectations. Excellent service accompanied outstanding food. An excellent experience.

Had a Ham and Pineapple pizza that was cooked perfect. The crust was thin and wonderful. Took home half the pizza and ate it the next--what a treat. This is a busy place that is calling you to stop in. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent food and service!! I ordered salmon and wife shrimp scampi. Outstanding meal to top off visit to see cranes at Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge.

I think yes--it's good. Atmosphere is not up scale, but rather basic. Service is excellent. Food is reasonably priced and outstanding. Portion sizes are very generous.

We have been so many times I can't count! The spicy shrimp spaghetti is off the charts good and shrimp ravioli as well!! Everything is great that we have had. Staff is very friendly and prices are great, esp for the amazing quality. I cannot say enough about this place...check it out.

This little restaurant is a great place. The ribeye con poncheta it absolutely the best. Very resonably priced. The restaurant is far from fancy but don't let the looks scare you. You gotta give it a try. Our friends drive 50 miles just to eat there. You'll love it.

Thank wow1870
