    We've been customers for years and recommend it to all our friends, in fact many have made Da's their place to dine now. The menu has something for everyone that loves good Italian food. If you want something special, they will try and accommodate you. The service staff is very professional and friendly.

    Waited over 30 minutes for our table with a reservation. Too loud too crowded. Salads were swimming in ranch. My soup was good. Entrees were good but salty. Waitress and bus boy were great. Hostesses were chatty and distracted by friends of some sort. Good portions but $22 for pasta in a loud, crowded restaurant with TV’s on the wall, was not worth it. Felt like a sports bar.

Nice bar area if you get their and want to have a drink before dinner. Friendly wait staff and ambience was very nice. Highly recommend this place and nice central location for the Metro Detroit area.

    Good food, bit of a wait after reservation was made and the table being attended to, but the place was busy and had a very young staff. Overall I think management is doing the best they can with what they're working with. I was pleased.

    Overall, the food and atmosphere and service was great. HOWEVER, this is not the first time where we waited for more than 45 minutes WITH a reservation. I understand it’s busy, but management needs to figure something out because there were a lot of frustrated people waiting.

    We made reservations online, OpenTable, for 6:15pm. We weren’t seated until 6:45pm. I certainly understand being busy, but our waiter wasn’t attentive and in fact my wife’s wine glass had lipstick on the rim. When we mentioned it to our waiter he didn’t seem to phased by it. My wife had to ask for her side of pasta since it wasn’t served before or with her meal. We frequent your restaurant often and had we not we might not consider coming back. But, we’ll certainly be back.

    My first time here and I will definitely be a repeat customer. I live about 45 minutes away but was told by many it’s worth the drive and I agree! From the ambience to the food it was outstanding! The staff here are very pleasant and seem to be happy to come to work which makes for a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back.

    Mamma mia! The food was excellent and our server was wonderful. My house salad had the vest Italian dressing ever and the bread was so fresh and tasty! I could tell it was fresh pasta and homemade sauce that was to die for! I didn't have room for dessert but we'll definitely go back! Recommend highly!

    We had a wonderful dining experience at DaFrancesco's once again! We were seated promptly, had such pleasant & timely service by a wonderful server,(sorry I forget her name) and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My husband was very pleased with his steak, as it was so tasty & tender, cooked to how he liked. I enjoyed the perch which had such a nice lemon caper sauce. Our son thought his pasta dish was delicious along with the navy bean soup. I asked for a cannoli dessert for my husband's birthday & they wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on the plate. The coffee & cappuccino were amazing! Highly recommend & will definitely be bringing friends here! Thank You!

    Food was great but my 6:00 reservation got me seated at 6:45. When I ask where I was on the list the hostess said 5 ahead of me then sat like ten groups. When I asked what happened, she said we seat one reservation then one waiting. I thought, why even make a reservation if people can walk in and get the same seating? Frustrating
