It was late, dark, rainy, and we were starved. Desperate, we saw the neon sign for Francesco's, stuck in a small strip mall between a rug shop going out of business and a Sherwin-Williams paint store, and pulled in. Best move of our day. Food...More

We usually avoid Italian restaurants because they tend to serve too much heavy food that leaves us feeling too full. What a surprise when we found this small, locally owned restaurant offering flavorful, healthy and authentic Italian food in portions that satisfied our appetites but...More

Francesco's was just not very good. The server got on my nerves and made us uncomfortable by continuing to return every two minutes to see if we made our decision. Sappy,fake Italian music repeats in the backround the whole meal,and makes me want to punch...More
