Sorry Francesca's.... horrible, over-priced food. $22.00 for 3 pieces of dried out, bland Manicotti.... are you kidding me?! Ordered stuffed mushrooms..... it was one big mushroom, tons of dry, uncooked stuffing inside and some gross sauce over the top that made the whole dish purple....More

My husband and I were treated wonderfully and thoughtfully! This seems like an odd way to describe restaurant service, but I couldn't call it anything else. Our server was attentive and made sure we were alright - asking if we wanted lemon in our water,...More

I don't understand the bad reviews. My wife and I have had dinner twice this month at Francesca's and everything has been excellent from service to food. We have travelled extensively and found their meals to be some of the best Italian dishes that we...More

Went there for lunch and we were the only customers in the place and that should have been a tip off. Inexperienced and untrained waiter. I ordered off the lunch menu which is very limited. Spaghetti and meatballs and the soup of the day which...More
