Francesca's is good. Is it GREAT Italian no not by any means. You want real Italian go to Italy or know someone who makes it from scratch as I do. It is hard for me to eat at Italian restaurants as I am picky! Now the food is average nothing to jump up about. The service is good. If you... More

Great place for a dinner and they did an excellent job for a group of 20 we had for a special occasion. The booking people and staff are just excellent! So nice and helpful. I would rate this place at the top of my list for a family event. Could not be more helpful and the event went off perfect.... More

I've been enthusiastic about the Francesca chain ever since I ordered veal at Naperville's La Sorella many years ago. It was easily the best veal I had ever tasted. We've eaten at Passaggio's several times occasionally taking the risk that they will meet the Francesca standard for tender, perfectly prepared veal. In the mood for veal and entertaining a business... More

Pluses: Friendly service, even with picky customers. You won't leave hungry. Always enough food left to take home. Roast chicken Minus: Seems like salt and pepper are the only seasoning they use. Do you really feel like eating the leftovers the next day?

We have been dining at Francesca's Passaggio since it opened. The wait staff is typically very accommodating, and the chefs will do their best to make you your favorite meal even when it's not on the menu. During our last visit a week ago, it was super crowded and our family of 6 was crammed into a table designed for... More

Great night with friends! Ordered a reasonable bottle of wine and enjoyed a tasty appetizer. The mahi mahi entree and gnocchi was excellent.

Whenever we go to downtown Naperville for a spa day we go to Francesca's for lunch. Nicely located with nice window tables, the service and food are always good and of course we ALWAYS have the profiteroles for desert. Nice portions and it never disappoints

Truly enjoyed our latest experience here! Met some great people and sat under the stars on the patio. The weather was perfect, and to our surprise, for the second time in two weeks, we were delighted by live entertainment. We sat at the huge square hightop bar table with the fire bowl of flames dancing in front of us! The... More

We have been here before and it was usually fairly good. However this time, it was not. I had one of the pizzas with arugula and parmesan. Toppings were good but the crust tasted like it had been frozen or not well baked, It was very doughy in the middle. The manager said that it was fresh homemade. Hard to... More

Met friends here that we haven't seen in 20 years. Our server was very patient and went out of his way to accomodate us. We had several dishes at the table, all very good portions. One in our party ordered rigatoni that turned out to be a flat, smooth, folded over noodle, like no rigatoni we had ever seen. The... More
