Best carpaccio ever!

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... read 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 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

We had a lovely lunch outside on the front patio with all the beautiful Frankfort landscaping/flowers. The service was excellent, a little slow taking our check at the end but meal service was great. Our server had suggestions which turned out to be great. Chicken Caesar salad was wonderful. A burger made to order was cooked to perfection. A warm... More

Have gone three times in last 2 weeks for lunch. Food pretty good - service was excellent - downtown Frankfort. Sat outside twice (outside seating limited but excellent) very enjoyable. In my opinion the food is not quite as good as La Dolce Vita which is a couple of blocks away but still very good. This is a good choice... More

I ate here today with my mom, and we chose to eat outside on their patio because it was such a lovely day. We had a nice table with an umbrella enjoying the beautiful breeze. Service was good, although a bit slow wrapping up the check. My mom and I both had the lunch special: tilapia, spinach, mushrooms, tomato. It... More

Food was great and service was excellent. We went after the car show on a Thursday night. We sat outside on the back patio which was very nice. Waiter was top notch. They are also small dog pet friendly on the patio which was awesome. We will definitely go back.

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