Looks almost too pizza shop from shopping mall location but absolutely perfect inside. A good review here about the veal and the reasonable prices. Great service, well prepared food and perfect casual couples atmosphere will bring us back for more. And now we must try the pizza! Old school simple Italian, the veal was not pre-made, it was pounded, battered... More

We ordered off the menu but should have ordered the pizza. We started with an artichoke app that was very good. One entrée was the gnocchi, tasty, was ok but heavier then usual. Forgot what the other entrée was. WE would go back for the pizza. THe place was crowded with locals

This is the second time I've been to Francesca's and it continues to be very good. Shared bruschetta, chicken piccata and creamy baked ziti. Each were delicious!!!

This place was recommended to us from a friend who lives in the area when we were there on vacation. Being from NY we are picky about our pizza and prefer NY style. Everyone loved the pizza! But I was also surprised with all the other menu options available. We went back for dinner another night and the food, service... More

We ordered two cheese and one pepperoni pizza from Francesco's and the reviews in the house were mixed. Most of the kids liked the little kick in the sauce but the grandparents weren't impressed. My husband and I both thought it was delicious. Would we order again? YES! But without inviting my parents! We haven't eaten in the restaurant yet... More

The owner Frank is from Italy and his mother taught him and the rest of the large family how to cook this amazing food. Seriously the pizza is fantastic but the highlights for us are the fresh bruschetta, artichoke piccata, the gondola, chicken piccata, and if you're... More
