Good Italian in downtown Frankfort, IL.

First of all, they made a darn good Beefeater's Martini, extra dry with Blue Cheese stuffed olives, which is a prerequesite for me. The Cream of asparagus soup was delicious. My wife had a pasta dinner and I had the scallops/cod dinner. Both were also very good. Had an above average wine list... read more

This is by far my favorite location out of all the Francesca's I have been to. The atmosphere and wait staff are a 10/10! If what you see is not on the menu specifically, they will see what they can come up with to accomodate your palate. Big dessert person and the choices come out with a great quality and... More

Simple request, table outside for my wife and I. Simple YES. Was it simple NO. Greeted by a young girl and another older woman at the check in. These two wanted to place us at a small table that was located up against the brick of the building. NOT a good table by no means. So we asked for a... More

This is always a favorite in Frankfort! Met a fried here for lunch after a brisk walk down the Frankfort trail on a beautiful morning . I love that they have casual outside dinning and a great choice for lunch options. Yes ladies that lunch sometimes want salad they had a few to choose from but they had plenty of... More

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 that was she said... 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
