NileGuide Expert tip:
Check Francesca's website for specials and entertainment listings.
In the Augusta region, when it comes to quality Italian cuisine at affordable prices, Francesca's should be included on any visitor's dining list. In warmer weather, their nightlife quotient is accentuated by live music on their outdoor deck ranging from country and western to traditional Italian favorites. The menu features all of the classics from fried calamari to lobster ravioli and braised short ribs, all expertly prepared by Chef Francesca. The desserts are also a highlight featuring rich chocolates and creams. Francesca's is upscale, intimate dining and entertainment that will please even the most cost-cautious diner.
