Simple menu - great italian

Francesca's has a basic menu but all Dishes have been really good. Chicken, pizzas, tilapia are my favs! Izzy the bartender makes great drinks and is so friendly! The atmosphere is great and just what downtown Frankfort needs!

Wonderful night, no bugs. Wine choice was the best. Food was exceptionally good. Not in a hurry for someone else to have our table.

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 also. We would easily dine here again.

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

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!
