Food was fantastic and the service was as well. I have always loved Francesca's Amici and now that they are open again, I will be frequenting this gem.
Very nice service, well prepared, well served food. Enjoyable experience.
I love Francesca's! Never a disappointment. Dennis is excellent. Always spot on with his recommendations. Lanna is also super friendly and also great with recommendations. Love it there!
Easy to get a reservation; the employees were all very kind and helpful. Very attentive to our needs. Seemed as if trying too hard to create ambiance as the lights were turned down too dim we couldn’t see our food. No candles on table so .. really dark. Then music turned up way loud similar to a bar. We had to ask to have the lights turned up and the music turned down so we could carry on conversation. This has always been a favorite restaurant of ours. I hope they go back to what they have always done. Make great food! Yummm.
Always a winner with children. Very nice staff and food is consistently good.
Pauly our waiter was great! Made great meal suggestions and was very attentive to our table of four! Food was amazing and the wine (50% off bottle menu) was great! We go at least once month or every 5-6 weeks. Never disappointed!!
We went to Francesca's to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. We had a wonderful dinner. We started with the bruschetta and calamari and also had some delicious fish dishes. Everything tasted top notch just like in Italy and all the servers were attentive and funny, What a great experience.
Always perfection....service, food, drinks, ambiance...100!
Just needed a little Francesca’s for dinner, love their bread, never disappointed with what I ordered, and service is always excellent and professional
Food and service was impeccable. The pasta with scallops was delicious!
Had the prime rib roast and it was over cooked. Disappointed. I have historically loved the restaurant and the quality was always consistent.
Everything was perfect!
It is friendly, good good, good Service, good price,
food was blah. The wait staff was great helped us celebrate a birthday.
Enrique was an excellent waiter and the food and drinks were great.
Great service, wonderful atmosphere and good food,
One of my favorite restaurants! Love that they consistently change the menu to keep things new and exciting, always amazing foods.
Love Francesca's! Dennis is the best waiter especially if you have a special request. Always gets the orders right. Seafood is so fresh and food always has good flavors.
Amazing food & service. Music a bit loud but they were happy to turn it down for us. Thank you!
The so called rice balls we ordered were very disappointing. They were deep fried mozzarella balls that tasted like the oil they were cooked in needed to be replaced.
Fabulous service. Great birthday celebration
The food was just not that good. The atmosphere and the service were wonderful... go here if you really aren’t that hungry but want a nice place to chat and have wine with friends.
They consistently have good food. Roasted chicken is excellent.
Long time customer. Had another great dinner with top notch table service on Tuesday evening. Really loved the mussels appetizer. Not sure why, but the young man at the front desk that evening was basically a condescending little snit.
Great tasting food and ecxellent service. Wide variety of menu choices.
Food is always good in the service is great. The staff is always friendly. Drinks are always cold as well :-)
Deeeeeelicisous! As always. Reliable value. Never disappointed. Will keep coming back.
We were seated and served quickly and offered wine and appetizers. Everything was going excellently and then we didn’t see our server for 40 minutes. Folks around us were seated, served and had left in the time it took us to get our entrees. Food was excellent.
Always excellent food and service. My wife and I always enjoy
Food was excellent we enjoyed ourselves and will be back
A welcome return to in person dining at one of our very favorite neighborhood spots. Delicious food, outstanding service!
Beautiful restaurant, great friendly service, never disappoints. The smaller dining room is way too loud. Hard to hear the other people at your own table.
Little noisy but great food
Everything was good!
Great place for dinner. Went during restaurant week and they had great choices. Felt like they were respecting Covid protocol
Sat Dinner: Arrived @ 7:00 to find a very busy and high energy front desk that quickly moved us to our table. Dennis was our server, we really enjoyed his red and white wine recommendations, and his table service from start to finish was top notch. We loved the soup, calamari, and fresh pasta dishes. The dining room tables were nicely spaced out, and everyone (staff and patrons) was adhering to COVID precautions - which was greatly appreciated. We will be back soon!
Always enjoy our time at this restaurant. We had a safe seating arrangement. Andy is a terrific bartender and always makes our time fun. Food was very good. Highly recommend!
Excellent food! Great service! Love this restaurant!
A reliable favorite. The food is always well prepared and freshly made from high quality ingredients. Modest size menu covers a good variety of proteins and pastas. They will gladly cook off he menu if they have the ingredients.
