The atmosphere was good, but the quality of food and drinks did not meet me expectations. It seems overpriced for the quality of the food/dishes. Will probably not visit again.

I have to say that I have eaten here twice recently and the food has been quite good, however, I ordered the seabass and found it rather ordinary. It could have used more seasoning. The service has always been excellent. The prices are average.

The food is very good, the service friendly but unobtrusive, and the atmosphere lively. High on our list when it's just the two of us.

Food is consistently good; not great and not bad. Average food, average service, average cost. That's why I give it a three. However, the restaurant is usually crowded and patrons are happy so who am I to disagree. Most suburban diners seem to be satisfied...More

I really love the homemade food at Francesca's North. It has the best Chicken Vesuvio and the rigatoni with sausage and mushrooms is to dream about. But the pizza is awful. I have ordered this twice and both times it is the same. The crust...More
