ABOUT US and our Food
  • Absolutely great experiences every time. Food is fantastic and the portions are great all the while not breaking the bank. Come here on Wednesdays and get a free canoli.

  • Da Francesco's has over the many years become my "go-to" for any and all if my Italian food cravings! The new location has all the same menu items, a larger patio, more room inside(they have a large open area in and around the bar area or you can opt for one of the more intimate smaller and sectioned off dinning areas. This gives it that Sunday Dinner at Nonna's feel!
