Good food, big portions, excellent service

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... read 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.

One of our favorite local italian restaurants. We've had almost everything on the menu and its all good. Look for the burrata appetizer -- really really good. The fireplace makes the room quite cozy during the winter and the front section opens up for the summer months. We like their $5 martini nights which currently is on Thursdays, but that... More

We were in Chicago to bury my mother and a friend suggested this restaurant following the burial. We went in the day before. The aroma said, "great Italian" The meatball and portobello sandwiches were outstanding with the meatballs being some of the best I have ever eaten. The next day we had 30 for lunch and they served a very... More

Was hard to choose from such an interesting a varied menu but dinner was absolutely outstanding. Great drink and wine selection as well. Had a wonderful evening with just the right amount of attention from the wait staff. Family friendly but there was little noise, lovely atmosphere. Fransesca's is a gem! Very resonably priced fresh pasta's and entree's. Definitely going... More
