    Our entire dining experience was ruined by the waitress. It was obvious she was unhappy and appeared as if she didn't want to be there> Our party was greeted by Michelle D with What do you want to drink? My son didn't receive silverware until we were done with salad Our entrees came before we were done with salad We felt rushed. She left such a bad impression we will not be back. Luciano's is far superior. Your restaurant gave the impression they they were some red lobster franchise

    Food was excellent a little noisy large party next to us. It wasn’t my first time eating dinner there the veal is very good and I would recommend it. The wait staff was on the ball they kept our water glasses filled and our food came out in a timely manner exactly what you would expect. Bravo!!

    Food was great and is always. Waitress was great. The only complaint was that I had a 4pm reservation and had to sit in front waiting until 4:15. No big deal I guess but they specifically have it in writing when you make a reservation, you have a 10 min grace period to hold your reservation. I would think then they would be just as respectful to seat you on time especially when the room we were finally seated in was empty for about 15 mins after we were seated, then, they began to seat other in the room. Just a bit annoying.

    We come here all the time usually at least a few times a month. Because it was late i decided to make a reservation to ensure we would get seated. When we got there the hostess seemed annoyed and made us wait 10 minutes to seat us a corner booth in the bar when we requested to not be seated in the bar due to the noise. She told us that was the only seat she could offer us because they have already closed all other rooms. The other rooms were not closed yet and were full with other guests. She was extremely rude and would not accommodate what the reservation was made for assuming because it was the last reservation of the night and just wanted to go home. This is the second time the hostess has done this to us and due to the noise level we decided it was best for us to leave as she made it seem that she was annoyed she was seating us. Due to these circumstances it makes us not want to come here anymore. After a long day at work with reservations and being treated like that is very unprofessional. I believe they need new hostesses and not young girls that are trying to hurry and leave when the place is still is still full of people.

    Very nice restaurant with good food. My only issue was I had to ask for a sauce that was supposed to come with our appetizer and also when our salads came we were not offered the fresh ground pepper which we overheard other tables being offered. We were there for the first time celebrating our Anniversary.

    My meal was excellent and the service was too. My only complaint was the noice level. I couldn’t talk to anyone at my table of three without screaming. Is there an acoustic problem there? I would recommend dinner at 9 pm when it’s slower.

    First off we have been to Da Francesco's several times, I always thought it was just OK, we have not been back in about four years though. They have stepped it up 100%, the food was FANTASTIC, it was the best Italian I have had. The waiter we had was also very good, always coming to check if there was anything we needed, we never felt rushed and always kept our drinks full. The only thing I would have changed is we were put in a half empty room and while quiet it felt like we were kind of secluded. Next time I think I would ask for a table outside :)
