We came to Francesca's for an early dinner, and there were only a few other people there. Our server, Mike, was very good and attentive. We did notice that it seemed like the wine list was far more extensive than the one page menu. We opted for the Risotta Guanciale which was on that menu, and the Pasta Bolognese which... More

We have been here twice now and each time was wonderful. Very relaxing, impeccable service. Terrific menu offerings which include some that are unique enough to make it a fun experience if you want something more than 'the usual" Italian fare. For example, since it is fall they had a delicious pasta dish stuffed with squash (di zucca( and it... More

Whenever we visit our former area, we make it a point to have a meal at Francesca's in Arlington Heights. We went light this time, with just the calamari appetizer and a pizza. As usual, both were excellent and memorable. The Tuscan wine with the meal made it perfect. Wish I could eat there regularly.

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!
