Kids Eat Free with Adult Entree Paid on Sundays

The ambiance is terrific; the servers, even newer ones, know their wines. The portions are generous-we had three adults and three kids, two adults had wine, and our total was under $80! The food is excellent and you aren't left filling up on bread to where you no longer wish to have your meal... read more

My wife and I have always enjoyed Francesca's. We have traveled to many parts of Italy and find the dining experience at Francesca's to be the most similar experience we can find in Naperville. The food quality is always high and the service is always excellent. We used to go to the location in downtown Naperville but living on the... More

We and another couple visited this restaurant on a Monday evening. It was sparsely attended (as would be expected for a Monday). Service was good and attentive. We found the offerings on the main menu a bit too 'different' for our liking. They do have daily specials listed on the back of the menu in a small section -- right,... More

My husband planned a surprise 50th birthday party there for me. It was great. He was so pleased with their help planning the party, the menu choices and the service we had. Our drinks were never empty for long, our food was delicious. We had 3 dishes served family style for our groud of 20 people in their party room.... More

Most of the time we order carryout from Francesca's due to its convenient location. The food is improving as is the service. However, both remain only OK. Example: we order from the carryout menu on the Passagio website, so it's specific to that location. Each time we order, however, we need to direct them to their own menu because they... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always great and the service very friendly. It is our go to for Italian and special occasions.

The food was good, but service was mediocre. I was expecting it to be like La Sorrella in downtown Naperville, but it wasn't even close. There didn't seem to be enough servers and the busboys seemed to be new and didn't have any training. I actually felt sorry for them because they seemed to want to do a good job,... More

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
