One of Frankfort's best

Francesca's is a great place with a friendly atmosphere. The food is always good and one of my favorite places to go in town.

Food, Service and atmosphere were all perfect for our pre Halloween wedding night out. Surrounded by witches, goblins and other creatures of the night, we were more than pleased with every aspect of our stop here, Will be back again.

Small daily menu. Use what's in season. Excellent food and good portions. Great for friends and date nights. Authentic Italian cuisine.

This is our go to Italian restaurant, have eaten there many many times. I have to say last time we were there, we weren't impressed by any of our meals. Will continue to go there though. I'm sure they will redeem themselves, it was a busy weekend night so maybe the kitchen was overwhelmed. We love the bruschetta and had... More

Great dining experience @ Francesca's. Server Mario was prompt & fun with excellent service. Dinner was Salmon with asparagus & grilled shrimp & scallops over pasta. Both selections were delicious. Dessert we shared a coconut cake with caramel drizzle. $140 for dinner, dessert, drinks, and tip. A wonderful evening out in Franfort IL.

We were at Francesca's Fortunato on Wednesday night with our entire family for a birthday celebration. The atmosphere was festive but it was quite loud and you could only hear the person sitting right next to or directly across from you The carpaccio is unlike any we've ever had; tender, thinly sliced raw sirloin with greens, asparagus, capers, tomatoes, mushrooms,...

We went to eat outside, but due to the nice weather and private party there was not seating available. We ate inside and ordered a hamburger. To our surprise, the hamburger was outstanding. Large portions and made to order. Menu suggested an option of fries or salad, but we weren't given that option. We went for something else, but will... More
