Francisco's is fabulous. You can't go wrong. It's a BYOB with wonderful food and great service. Try their warm garlic bread. It's the best we've ever had.

We chose to sit on the porch on a warm summers evening. The salads were tasty. The Filet with pasta really stood out. Ready for another visit soon.

For a special birthday there couldn't have been a better place to celebrate. Everyone was accommodating. They couldn't do enough but didn't hover either. Most important the food was delicious and the atmosphere, just beautiful. Love this place.

What a quaint place to eat with a nice view of the river. Menu is nice and the service very good. Prices are fair and the food tasty. Had a Groupon which made this BYO even better. Give them a try.

Restaurant was nice. Service was great. Was disappointed in my dish..chicken porcini. The chicken was a little too thick and dry. However everyone else in our party (5) enjoyed their meals and portions were big. Coconut cake is very delicious, as well as the Tiramisu.
