Francesca's is a casual upscale restaurant with underground parking available in town. Lunch menu offered many good options and everything was delicious. The restaurant had a bar and a range seating areas. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I used to like this place but the last few visits have been less than stellar. The food has become average and the waiter disappeared like Harry Potter. The prices are a bit much for what you are given. It's a step below Olive Garden.
