We went to Roscoe Illinois to see my cousin sing at a venue which turned out to be less than savory, at best. We decided not to stay and now we were hungry and a hundred miles from home. Whipping out our trusty I-Pad, we looked for restaurants around Rockford and settled on Franchescos. This place turned out to be... More

The room they put us in for our business dinner was beautiful, spacious with large windows, set up beautifully. The food was outstanding, although it was served buffet style. Gracious staff.

The food was good but a little pricey. Could have been informed the fresh squeezed OJ was $4.00 a glass. Had a good time but probably not do it again- too expensive.

I usually go there when part of large group celebration since have many private areas for groups. Have group menus and selections. Food good. Service good. Offers family style serving for large groups.

Four of us had dinner here and while the service was excellent, the food was not impressive. I ordered escargot, which was a delight to see on the menu, as an appetizer. The "toast points" were VERY crispy to say the least, more like a melba toast crunchiness. The escargot themselves were plump and delivered hot, but the garlic and... More

My wife ordered the filet, medium well. Waiter brought a very well done (burned) filet. We sent it back for a second try and the chef burned it again. Third time's a charm right? Not at this restaurant, third steak appeared to be cooked correctly and when the filet was turned over, it was burned on the bottom and the... More

Franchesco's is real upscale and I would say the food is excellent! We came here with some family and had a real nice Dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food and really had no complaints at all. Food is pricey but worth it! It's what you can expect from a place this nice. Great place to wine and dine your lady!
