In town on business and was told to check it out. For $6.95, a nice option. Two pasta options, a veggie (green beans), two pizzas to choose from, bread, calzones, soup and salad. Pizza was ok, hard to judge based on size. Crust was crunchy,...More

We've visited the Bridgewater Francesco's many times, but thought we'd give the local place a try for our evening meal. While I gave the restaurant an overall rating of "average" . . . I'd say they have the best salad around! The perfect size and...More

The restaurant wasn't busy at all but it still felt understaffed- took forever to get refills, food came out in wrong order (apps with entres and after entres). The staff was very young, inexperienced, but friendly. Bread and pizza crust are fresh which is great...More

I've had all of their pizzas numerous times and they're always hot, fresh, and good. The service has been mixed throughout the years, but it's generally pretty good.

Francesco's pizza is delicious (we get the Mediterranean with added pepperoni) and so are the garlic rolls. I also appreciate the service staff who are so pleasant and the low-key atmosphere.

We ordered a bunch of deluxe steak and cheese subs and fries for the shop once as a change from a chain pizza place. The guys have requested them every time since then. A yummy, filling sandwich and, yes, you have to reheat the fries...More

Probably my favorite aspect of Francesco's is the excellent bread and pizza/stromboli crust. It's pretty small and when not too crowded is quite comfortable. The service is a bit uneven but generally fine. The beer selection is adequate. I had stromboli tonight and it was...More
