Tried this out and was very happy with the food. I got the Moon and fried pickles and it was great (but WAY too much food!), my wife got a custom sandwich and it was ok, s0me ingredients were missing but not too bad. The overall menu has lots of selection and pricing was good. I like the format where you order and pay up front then sit and the food is brought by a runner, no wait staff. Very efficient!

Biggest problem was that the seating area is not very comfortable. Several ceiling fans are running at high speed so the draft was terrible. The other issue is the accoustics were lousy. The place was only half filled yet it was hard to hear each other speak.

We'll definitely go back, just hope they can make the seating area more comfortable.

Francesca by Katie’s is love at first sight/bite! Their expansive menu has something absolutely delicious for everyone, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the neighborhood/family atmosphere is palpable. I wish I could give them 100 stars because 5 ain’t enough!
