Went here on a Saturday night with a restaurant.com coupon. We could smell the garlic and hear the Italian music from the parking lot. Didn't know we needed a reservation. The dining area is very small. But, they seated us right away. They actually made up a table for two for us. Excellent garlic knots and bread basket. Very good... More

not the fanciest place but they have the best dishes. Day to day specials, plus menu favorites, also a nice dessert menu as well as a wine list for the adults.

This place is like hundreds you've been to that up front is a pizza takeout section and tables in the back for dining. They offer like all the others a Mon. and Tues. Pasta night; salad, pasta and cannoli for $12. Good deal. The restaurant decor is very nice but small. Brick lined walls and artwork from Italy. The usual... More

The outside doesn't look appealing but once you taste the food nothing else matters. The owner and workers are more than accommodating. They will make you anything you want the way you want it and will make you feel comfortable. The food is consistently fresh and good. The prices are very good and the portions are large. I have recommended... More

We have gone to Francesco's numerous times and we are never disappointed. The food is very good and the portions are large - prices are great as well. You will take home food for sure. It's located in a small strip mall on the south side of Montauk Hwy - its easy to miss it. The dining room is small... More

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of Francesco's - it looks like another strip mall pizzeria, which it is in the front. In the back there's a nice little cozy dining room where you can enjoy dinner with quite conversation - no screaming across the table.. The food is consistently good, nice portions at reasonable prices. The wait staff... More

Great local spot for an Italian dinner. The menu is broad enough to please everyone. We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meal. Staff here was friendly and knew the menu.

We went with a large group for a family party and I didn't expect much. The dining room, hidden behind the takeout pizza area, is small and dark. The food, however, was excellent, particularly the chicken parm - tender and tasty. The portions were large so we left with food to enjoy the next night.

All food is prepared fresh and they give large portions, enough to share! Usually have many specials to choose from and worth the trip. Great to visit before seeing a play across the street at Bay Way Arts Theater!

this place is deceiving, it looks like a pizza shop at the front, but there is a great restaurant behind it, good staff, and a great selection of food, not over priced and big portions
