I've been there a few times.I've been there a few times. The service is like no other, they really shine in that department.9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWasnt the place we originallyWasnt the place we originally were going to, but when you have a 5 year old in tow and no babysitter your choices become limited.
We reserved this spot only minutes before arriving and werent even sure it was kid friendly. However the staff were awesome and took care of the young one and engaged him whenever they passed by.
As an expert traveler in Italy and well versed in the range of authentic food/wine in the region, this restaurant does very good justice to the qualities and simplicities of italian cuisine. The wine list is extensive.
And most importantly when I asked if they had Rapini I was encouraged by the waiter to ask for anything I desired because the chefs are willing to do bespoke dishes for you.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there........enjoyed wonderful food and service as well as the incredible collection of "previous diners" on the walls, great experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Meeting/MealWas perfect for our group, we had customers joining us, we were private enough so we could talk business and not be disturbed.
Been to this restaurant several times, excellent staff, food and ambiance.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Patio and Fantastic FoodIt's rare to find such a nice patio, that isn't too noisy in the core of downtown. Don Francescos offers just that... with great service and amazing food to top it off. It's a little pricey, but worth it... especially on a special occasion or just for that special treat we all deserve now and then!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!Found their ad for half price Sunday (50th anniversary) pasta and salads in the local paper and decided to try it. WOW! It's great food at full price but half price is sublime! My husband and I tried the Caesar and spinach salads, then the tiger shrimp linguini and the lobster lasagna. All were amazing: fresh, well prepared and unique. We sat outside on a lovely spring day and service was attentive and friendly even though the place was packed! We look forward to returning.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService and ambiance was justService and ambiance was just wonderful. Great live music and not too loud. Wine list was fantastic with a greatly diverse dinner menu. All was delicious!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are GAME for GAMEAn extensive menu of hard-to-find game meat prepared in creative manners. The rabbit is tremendous...the duck is stellar. I am repeatedly tempted to try other dishes [have been with a big group that collectively ordered almost everything, with rave reviews from around the table]. The decor is classic...and you get a chuckle from the retro wall coverings en route to the washrooms [a series of signed photos featuring Don Francesco standing next to a who's who of local and Hollywood celebrities]. Expect your taste buds to dance!11/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
