My husband and I use to frequent this restaurant often until we had a bad experience. I was told by a friend that they cater to the Italians that come in but I did not believe it. We had been waiting to be seated for at least a half hour when a lady and her two children came in. She... More

Cold bread in a basket, no oil to dip it in, jars of parmigiana cheese from Gordon Food Service on the tables. Great service, but production line you can feel like your being pushed out the door......Decor, better at Old Country Buffet, nothing Italian about the place. Food bland, barely seasoned, my Chicken Parm was one fat chicken breast, not... More

This is my favorite go to Italian restaurant. It is a good value with soup and salad with your dinner. My fav is veal Parmesan. I always get it!

We try to get there at least once a month. Wonderful food, great service and the best owners in the world. Always greet us with a smile and a hug....usually have to wait for a seat, but that is good, that means everyone else is enjoying their food too. It is a must try if you enjoy Italian food at...

We were part of a large group( 60+) and the food was very good and the service was great. Food was served family style and there was plenty. We had a large area to our selves.

Had dinner with a large group of friends last week. I had a chicken with artichokes and mushrooms dish that was simply out of this world. The chicken melted in my mouth, and the sauce was heavenly. The side of pasta was also delicious. Great experience all the way around.

Very good Italian restaurant . It's hard to choose what to order , great menu. Food is delicious and plentiful . Plenty of parking , handicap accessible . Help is very friendly, service is good. A little dark inside for me, I guess that's called ambiance!

Where the ones who know, go... A good friend came into town this weekend to visit my SO and me. We grew up together surrounded by great Sicilian friends and families - so our standards for good Italian food are pretty high, and Da Francesco's cleared the bar easily! The three of us wanted to start with a good fried... More

We've been here a few times and always receive great food and service. We've tried several different entrées and have been pleasantly surprised. Truly Authentic Italian feel. Only negative is sometimes you have to wait for seating.
