The chicken parmigiana is my favorite go-to when I am having a bad day. You get a huge portion and it's incredibly filling. It's really good.

My wife and I have had lunch on two occasions at Francesco's and both experiences have been outstanding. On both occasions we had one of their lunch specials and both times the dishes exceeded our high expectations. Excellent service accompanied outstanding food. An excellent experience.

Had a Ham and Pineapple pizza that was cooked perfect. The crust was thin and wonderful. Took home half the pizza and ate it the next--what a treat. This is a busy place that is calling you to stop in. You will not be disappointed.
