Italian chefs look to the Mediterranean Sea for culinary inspiration, drawing from its bounty of fresh fish, scallops, and Le Cordon Bleu–trained clams. Reel in dinner with this Groupon.

$20 for $40 Worth of Italian Fare

Fennel-and-mushroom-salad appetizers ($9.25) precede servings of Francisco's lasagna ($22), lobster ravioli ($22), and the chef’s signature linguine al frutti di mare fradiavolo with shrimp, scallops, and clams ($28). See the full menu.

Francisco's on the River

Along the scenic River Road between New Hope and Washington Crossing lies a lushly landscaped yellow house with puffs of smoke spiraling from its chimney. Though ordinary in appearance, a peek through the large windows reveals large Italian feasts of fresh mozzarella, seafood, and pastas prepared by the house chef, Francisco Argueta. Servers bustle about with platters of the chef’s signature dish—linguine al frutti di mare fradiavolo with shrimp, scallops, and mussels in white wine and red sauce—careful not to knock over towers of Francisco's lasagna with thick layers of pasta, ricotta, porcini mushrooms, and smoked bacon. Diners seated under the timber-beamed ceilings of intimate dining areas sip sodas, sparkling mineral water, and cappuccinos by the flickering warmth of a fireplace. Francisco's on the River’s BYOB policy allows diners to tote in their own libations, such as a favorite bottle of wine or a vintage carton of milk.

Customer Reviews

Very nice restaurant right on the Delaware River. A little pricey, but well worth it. Also, it is a BYOB and free lot parking.
