We enjoy the food at this restaurant. It is good for this area. The Alfredo sauce tends to be thin but the marinara sauce is just right. The minestrone soup is a good choice. A good place for children.

Francesco's is authentic Italian! Every dish is cooked fresh and every one I have had is delicious. My favorite is not on the menu (Yes! They will prepare off-menu dishes for you) is the capellini primavera with red sauce. Enjoy!
