The best Italian around. No other restaurant even comes close to this food it is that good!

I love he linguine Faggatoro. Hot pasta over a cold sauce of chopped tomatoes, garlic(love the garlic) and fresh basil. This is a great summer dish. The mussels are in marinara sauce and you can easily make this a meal. I hate to share this dish make sure you get more bread to soak up the... read more

There are about 6 of these restaurants in the Chicago area and they have similar menus. The service is attentive and the food reliably good. This location is plenty big to handle a larger group. The bar area is nice and we 8 enjoyed drinks in that area before we were seated in the dining room. Because we were meeting... More

We are regular patrons of this restaurant and receive their email newsletters. We decided to take my mother-in-law there for Mother's Day dinner after receiving an email, and we made an early reservation for 5:30 since she is 86 years old. We were seated in the back room by a fireplace, which was charming. It went downhill from there. We... More

Francesca's is a moderately sized restaurant on the bustling main drag of Forest Park, Illinois (Madison St just west of Harlem Ave). It's well worth arriving early so you can check out the block which is VIBRANT! Went there for a birthday dinner at about 5:30 on a Saturday and left around 7:00. Restaurant was about 3/4 full. The service... More

This is a very nice traditional Italian restaurant. The service was very good. What I really appreciated is I wanted spagetti and meatballs, but it was not on the menu. I asked the waiter and he said the kitchen could do it no problem. They did and it was excellent. They have large window/doors that allow them to open dining... More

We have been to many of the Francesca's family of restaurants over the years and have always found them to be a good value and to have very good food. The ever-changing hand written menus are a nice touch. The menu is limited to about 6 pastas and 6 meat or fish dishes. The servings are large. The kids menu... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch with some friends. We had 2 prosciutto platters fro appetizers. Excellent choice which was served cold with just the right amount of seasonings. I had an order of meat balls and my friends had ravioli. All were cooked to perfection. Great sauce. Very good lunch. Will definitely come back when in area.

We dined here with relatives who live in Chicago. They knew of this restaurant since it is not very far from their house. Everyone really enjoyed their yummy Italian meals here. My pasta came with a spicy sauce and I requested it to be mild. Well, it was still too spicy for me - the waiter gladly had it remade... More

Food was good and the service was the same. We had the white fish and reall enjoyed it. Mid Sunday afternoon and the place was quiet....just what we wanted. Indoor or outdoor seating. We will be back. Just an overall delight.
