Food was good, but we were looking for some good pasta and there were not a lot of options on the menu. No spaghetti or fettucini or lasagna.

Visited the restaurant with friends. Since most of us come from a Mediterranean country, we expected Mediterranean cuisine from an Italian restaurant. As it proved, we all had high hopes, as the result didn't live up to our expectations. Despite the impressive names & description of the dishes, the actual food served was not good. Apart from one in our... More

My husband and I had dinner there for his birthday! He isn't a big fan of pasta so he ordered chicken. I also ordered chicken. Both meals were in sauce that was to die for! This restaurant is in the heart of downtown Naperville and they have tables in the window perfect for people watching. Between our seats and the... More

In the area for business and had asked for a nice place to take my clients for dinner. A local suggested this restaurant. Glad we made reservations, because the restaurant was packed. We had seven in our party and were well taken care of. The meal was excellent! We started with appetizers of calamari and fabulous bruschetta. One person had... More

You can't go wrong with this place! This is my wife's favorite restaurant in Naperville. While the menu isn't extensive, it changes regularly and you can always find an awesome choice. The food is outstanding and the staff is very attentive and they know the menu inside and out. The building itself is very impressive, high ceilings, cool bar. The... More

We always enjoy our dinners here - well done, attentive service and we like the surprise of being first or second floor, both are great ....

We had our 40 year wedding anniversary on June 22, 2014 The service was good, and the food was very good. My husband and I sheared the mussels in tomato sauce, which was not so good; the sauce was very thick and tasted like store bought. I could not decided between the fish of the day and a pasta with...

Always a very good meal at a reasonable price! Try the bruschetta and calamari! Decent list of super tuscans for wine, and if they have the veal it's a must try!

This restaurant is an awesome date night with my husband. The service is outstanding. I would make a reservation. Very clean and elegant surroundings. We ordered Insalata di Cesare which was very crisp and not too much dressing....a perfect salad. For our entree we had Filetto con Carciofi e Funghi which is a 8 oz filet with baby artichokes and...

If you're looking for a great "date night", Francesca's La Sorella is always a good romantic fine dining choice. Start at the bar with a nice drink or glass of wine and move to a starched-white table for dinner. The staff is attentive but not pushy to turn tables. The food choices are all very good....The first floor is fairly... More
