Francesco's Bistro is located on the main road in a small town in mid-Michigan It's a relatively large stand alone building that is fairly easy to find. The dining room looks very much like any number of country restaurants, although it does have several Italian design elements. The menu was very large, with many Italian classic selections plus pizza but we before we even ordered, we were presented with a loaf of Italian Bread with Olive Oil and Herbs. The bread seemed very fresh and had a crusty outside and soft inside like a good, fresh bread. This seemed t0 bode very well for the restaurant quality. Our waitress was nice and friendly so we already knew that we had that covered.
While Francesco's does not quite fill the large shoes left by Terry's and Jerry's, they are good in their own right and I would happily return. I will however, keep in mind the serving sizes and plan accordingly so I can get dessert.
