We had previously eaten here 3 times with a large group - either the times were early or we were in a room with only the group. My husband and I came here on a Sunday evening and sat across from each other. The noise level was so loud that conversation was next to impossible. In spite of the fact... More

We have not been here in years, but after a good experience at the Barrington location, we thought we would give it another try. We were glad we did. We shared a Caesar Salad, that was big enough for two and the taste was very good. Loved the addition of some peppers to the salad. For entrees my wife had... More

My son had given us a gift card for Francesca's. However, since we live in Arizona and found out the Scottsdale restaurant had closed, we brought the card with us when we visited in Illinois. So glad I remembered to bring it with. The restaurant in Arlington Heights was very nice. The food was delicious. My husband had a bowl... More

Our first time here. Was greeted by the host who is extremely pleasant. He offered to take our drink orders and appetizer order right away. Our server Michael was fabulous! The manager came over to say hi. Very personable service. We all had pasta. My tomato basil sauce was very good. Others had the alfredo and raved about it. Portions... More

Very delicious and imaginative food, alongside new takes on good Italian stand-bys. The Francesca people have all the execution down: decor, service, food, ambiance. I unreservedly recommend.

I attended a business dinner with colleagues in one of their private rooms. The staff was very good and attentive. The food was amazing, we had appetizers, salad, dinner and desert and I can say all of it was very tasty.

This is our default for family celebrations, "just because" meals, or out-of-town guests. The menu has something for everyone--never disappoints!

There are Francesca's restaurants in and around Chicago, I have been to all of them. Consistently excellent food, creative and delicious. The veal tenderloin is exceptional. Always make a point of eating there when I'm back home in Chicago, never disappointed.

We love Francesca's. They have a good gluten free menu which is tough for most Italian restaurants. Their GF pizza is great. The location has easy parking, and usually not too crowded. The menu is reasonable, and has nice sharing options.

Very good food, HUGE portions! Great service! The burger on the lunch menu is amazing. The pasta was done just right (al dente) and brocoli still firm and green. The staff was friendly and very patient since we took a while to order.
