Decent italian and cozy atmosphere.

We arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation and were greeted with a positive response and a lovely table near the fireplace (albeit close to the kitchen entryway). The wine list was impressive with plenty for all price ranges. Out server surprisingly offered to decant our wine which was a... read more

live about 5 minuetes from this restaurant and go there 2-4 time per month. The food is as good and consistent as anywhere in the area. No heavy sauces to bury the taste of your protein so the flavor of what you are eating is there. Just had a party there for fifty guests. The food was the best and... More

Lunch choices were interesting and different from the run-of-the-mill Italian restaurants. However, if a person really wanted the run-of-the-mill Italian offering, such as meatballs and pasta, the waiter assured us that it was available for the asking. The breads were fabulous!

Francesca's was a pleasant experience. I have visited several Francesca's restaurants and this one really made my family and I feel right at home, especially since it is only 10 minutes from home. The service and food were awesome! We have visited this location several times because of the friendly atmosphere. Keep up the great job!

There's a reason why Francesca's has spread throughout the suburbs. It is delicious. We always order a fish with the veggies on top, and a pasta with veggies or seafood mixed in. I've only been here at dinnertime, and the service has always been good. Can't speak to service during non-dinner times. It's gotten pricey (compared to the original Mia... More

Recently, I hosted an event in the Bolingbrook IL area and needed a place for the leaders to eat afterwards. It needed to be conveniently close with ample parking for my group of 18. I contacted them by phone 1 week before the event and they were very accommodating and pleasant regarding my request. (We were eating earlier than the... More

We were at this "empty" restaurant on Sunday afternoon as the Bears Played football. It was a nice quiet late lunch early dinner. this place can get loud so that was welcome. the food is nice and as expected from Francesca's. I like the new pared down menu. our server was great.

We attended a rehearsal dinner here with about 30 people. The manager set the tables up the way we wanted and put our centerpieces out before we got there. The waiters did everything right. Smiling and good service. We had a choice of three entrees and we chose Penne con Pollo along with the mixed green salad. For dessert, the... More

We had a waitress took our order and never came back. Gotta love it. We had 2 other young men help us with dessert good choice of Profiteroles Al Pistachio. That was so good but a lot they give you 3 cream puffs but I couldn't finish the 3rd one. I changed the gelato to Spumoni favor. That was Delish.... More
