Very Good Chef

I have been to several of the Francesca restaurants around the Chicago area & this one is definitely my favorite. They seem to have a chef that's a notch above the others. The food is very nicely presented & the chef takes care with innovative but not over the top dishes. My friend had a burger... read more

It never ceases to amaze me how restaurants will pack their tables so close to one another that you feel like you are dining with strangers. I believe it is all about maximizing profit. However, that tactic does not make for an enjoyable dining experience. While lunch is good and the restaurant is reasonably quiet at that time, dinner is... More

Waiter was excellent and provided insight across all three courses. The atmosphere is like being in a large room, too much noise, but friendly! If you are good with an extremely loud environment, the food was delicious!

I have been there a few times and have a mixed review. The menu changes and I like that. It just doesn't stand out for me. My wife and friends love it

Wonderful restaurant. Food is fresh and delicious. I have tried most everything on the menu and everything I have ordered has been great. Had a party there for 20 people, and the food was hot and brought to everyone at the same time. A definite must-go. I've had business lunches here, dinner with friends here, baptism party, and a couples... More

We have lived in Frankfort for 28 years. This is our favorite restaurant in the area. A great substitute for going to Chicago for better Italian. Order pasta for dinner and you have lunch for the next day

This is one of my favorite places to eat. They make a delicious salmon dish with a mango type salsa over asparagus. It is so good. Pasta is all fresh made and the martinis are really good. Only problem we have sometimes is that it can be very loud.

We had a large group (14) that met at Francesca's, many of us are gluten free. The options were great including pasta and pizza. I had the Chicken with eggplant and steamed spinach that was wonderful. I also snacked on my daughters pizza which she was very happy with. They handled our group very well and everyone was pleased with... More
