The wait staff was warm and friendly, and the food was phenomenal. Will definitely stop back again. The outside look like any other mom and pop restaurant, don't let it fool you it's a Hidden Gem.

We love going to Francesco's when we're in Alma. You would never believe that such a small town would have such a wonderful restaurant.

Have yet to be disappointed. Favorite entree is eggplant parmesan. The homemade bread is hearty and tasty served with olive oil, garlic, and spices. Very affordable considering the entree and side pasta serves 2 or a nice leftover meal
