My husband received a gift card to Francesca's Tavola for Christmas. We took two of our children for dinner. It was lovely! The food was fabulous, the service good, a great meal! We will return soon!

One of my favorites, the chef changes the menu all the time so you don't know what the choices will be to you dine. Always amazing. Try a Monday lunch or dinner, VINO is 1/2 off bottles, now that's a deal. Lots of great appetizers and deserts to choose from. I love that they don't rush you nor do they... More

We visited this restaurant on 12/23 with 16 family members. My father arranged this special holiday dinner for our family and had saved all year to be able to treat us all. They had reserved a separate table for us all at 6pm--early in the night before the restaurant became too busy. We had terrible service, terrible food and a... More

An diverse menu offering some tasty Italian dishes, Francesca's meets the standards of good pasta, suitable wines and local prices. The smiling service and staff were thorough, enthusiastic and efficient. The noise level made conversation a little difficult. This remains a great place for any occasion when you want good food reasonably priced.

Invited 25 of my women relatives to a Holiday celebration. Food was, as always, excellent. Working with Julie was a pleasure. The private room was perfect. Wait staff professional and thoughtful. This was a fine holiday treat. Thanks!

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
