Dreary and cold winter day found us in Bridgewater. Looked up Francesco’s and saw reviews and decided to give it a try. Entered side door and immediately saw a delicious looking Italian buffet. Attracted by outside sign for any sub, drink and fries for $6.95....More

This is my family's go-to for pizza! By far our favorite place in town to grab a quick bite to eat where everyone is happy with the meal!

I ordered dinner to go; they were pleasant in taking my order and letting me know about the time frame of my order. The fettuccine alfredo was good and not overly garlicky (which is a good thing). The salad was fresh and the bread was...More

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.

Met a group of 6 for dinner. Had the lasagna. Absolutely the worse meal in quite some time. Sauce was bland, there were no lasagna noodles, no meat just some pasta mush covered with some type of pasta sheet topped with a tasteless cheese ....More

Good service and food. The atmosphere is good too. The owners are on site and make sure all is run well.
