Atmosphere was that of an adorable little Italian family restaurant and we were lucky enough to go during the week so it wasn't busy but I'd recommend reservations for any other time.

good food...nice atmosphere...reasonable price...but to exit the restaurant onto state route 51 toward Pittsburgh is impossible...a Jersey barrier does not allow you to travel north...there is no place to turn around...what a shame because this place is worth going to

I loved the food. The salad was served family style and was quite good. The bread was tasty and our pasta was excellent and flavorful. I will return to Francescos.

Atmosphere could be improved. Teenagers often waiting tables, this could be better. But the food is very good. Ultimately, food is what we're going for!
