“Fantastic restaurant for all occasions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We have been to this Francesca's several times to celebrate different occasions. I hosted a dinner party here for 15 people and we were well taken care of. The food is always great, affordable. Ambience is good.

“Great family dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

We ate here last night and it was a table of 5. We had the calamari appetizer which was crispy and plentiful. The menu changes daily. Two of us had chicken wrapped in proscuitto and fresh mozzarella in a tomato sauce. One of us requested white wine sauce and I requested vodka sauce which they were more than happy to accommodate. The dishes were both delicious. One diner ordered the ravioli mushroom dish which was the perfect portion And full of flavor. One diner ordered the mussel appetizer and the waiter asked if he would to have pasta added to it to make it more filling. The dish was huge with over 2 dozen plump mussels which were perfectly cooked. Another diner had a dish with shrim and scallops in a pesto sauce with linguine, green beans and potatoes. He requested no potatoes since the pasta was enough cabs for the dish and their only complaint was that the shrimp had the tails on them and the sauce was messy but flavorful. We also had a wonderful bottle of wine which was excellent. A nice perk, was when we considered ordering their daily special wine and the server let us taste it before ordering. Good thing because we didn't like it and they made another suggestion with a tasting. We loved it. I can't comment on the price if the wine as another diner picked up the check so my review of the price is related to the price of the food only.

“As usual, a Great Meal with Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

They hit it out of the park every time no matter which location.
I had the mushroom filled ravioli - oh my! Woke up next morning craving more...
Other in our party were just as satisfied only they had leftovers to comfort them!

“a nice little treat for a special evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

We had the mixed seafood pasta which was loaded with all types of shellfish and portioned big enough for 2. We also had the lasagna which was very filling and half of it went home with us. My son ordered the half roasted chicken which was very moist and full of flavor. We loved the bread and the only thing over priced was the wine the bartender recommended when I ordered a glass of red blend. He recommended another variety which I decided to try without asking the price. Turned out they were $15 a glass
