Nice place on the small side and a little bit noisy. Prices are a little pricey but the portions and quality were very nice. We will be back.

We eat here often, neighborhood gem as far as we’re concerned. Tonight was a special get together with our friends and we were not disappointed. Our server, Mary Beth was fabulous as always. Not rushed, great food and special service. Tito was great and so attentive.

For a Sunday early evening dinner after attending a music concert, I selected the Insalata all Francesca (Romaine, endive and radicchio with blue cheese, fresh vegetables, lemon & balsamic salad) and the Costoletta di Maiale alla Valdostana entrée (pork chops with wild mushrooms, spinach, fontina cheese sauce and white truffle oil). Both selections were delicious and very generous portions. Service was attentive and efficient. I enjoyed the dining experience.

Haven't been to Francesca's in awhile. Had the squash pasta and rigatoni with vegetables. Both were wonderful. Portion sizes are generous. Service was great. Will definitely be back again soon.

Francesca's was nice and cozy on a rainy evening. The warm bread was a great start to our girls-night-out meal. The waitress and staff was very attentive and friendly.

Francesca's was absolutely terrific on Saturday evening for dinner. Food was fantastic. Had the spinach tortellini with cream sauce and my wife had chicken linguine with a cream sauce. Had the risotto appetizer and a wedge salad. Requested Mary Beth as our server. She's the best and will continue to request her.

Remove a few tables and spread people out some

They had on the special menu for that evening a crab cake as an appetizer but when I order it they said they were out of it. The nouse level is very loud which I think is just the building they are in. Otherwise all in all we enjoyed it.

Obviously, a mixed review of the restaurant. The fish entrees were uniformly good. But, risotto and polenta entrees were too salty. Salads had too much Parmesan shaved onto them. Likewise, too much prosciutto was added to a number of dishes contributing to the salty issue. The waitress did a good, but not great job, as she did not bring a soft drink for one member of the party until being reminded twice. The table was crowded in spite of having only 5 seated at a table for 6. The rest of the wait staff was not very good. They did not clear the table in a timely manner, and they served entrees while the table was still covered with appetizer and salad dishes. I was drinking water for dinner, and my glass was empty most of the time.

It has always been one of my favorite restaurants and we've gone there for years. Recently, I am now needing to be on a gluten free and dairy free diet for medical reasons, and the modifications to the dishes or what is offered for GF/DF wasn't good. I've been to other restaurants that modify the menu and the meals have been delicious. My chicken was over cooked and plain, without any inventiveness on the part of the chef to accommodate people with allergies.

Everything was pretty good. Except for our waitress. I'm pretty sure she never even introduced herself. I waited over 30 minutes just for a soda refil. Never can to check on us while eating. Never offered dessert had to ask. And had to stop her to get our check. Come on. I will be back. But to another location. This left a bad taste

While our waiter was adequate, it was the busboy who did an outstanding job.

Good food! Good Service! Noise level too high that day making it hard to have a normal conversation. Maybe too many tables too close to each other! Still one of our favorite restaurants!
