Real Italian in Rockford, Illinois

Had lasagna there the other night and it was excellent. Did not see much activity in the restaurant so we had good service for a week night - they seem to be busier on the weekends. Never had a bad meal here with some better than others.

Started out with bread dredged thru seasoned olive oil of average quality. Next we shared an excellent filet-mignion and a serving of mediocre lasagna. The filet served with a side of mixed vegetables was of superb quality. However, the lasagna had no real substance. It was of average quality, at best. The meal was very good overall. Could have been... More

I have been to Franchesco's multiple times for lunch, dinner, and business functions. The quality of the food will never again equal what it was back when they were on Perryville Road. Our most recent encounter was a get together with adult friends for a birthday dinner and drinks. No problem with the reservation or seating. The service was extremely... More

Great setting, friendly service, great drinks and good food. The portions are generous and the prices are affordable. Great place for group dining, dueling pianos or game watching at the bar.

Francesco's has a nice atmosphere and they have an interesting menu, but the food and drinks are over priced and the service is not that good. I guess when the bill was over $300 for a table of six that the wait staff should pack the "doggy bag". I don't really care for snobby service anywhere, we don't go there... More

Franchesco's is my husband's favorite place to dine. We enjoy the dining room with family and the bar as a couple. He loves the bookbinder soup and I love the piccata. When we do bring the children, the kitchen is great about customizing options for our vegetarian daughter. Try to enjoy the dining room on a weekend for piano and... More

I am encouraged every time I dine at this establishment. Not because the food is outstanding or excellent or even consistently good but just because I love the room. If you sit back and dream a bit you could be anywhere in the world sitting in this dining room. I am used to sending my meal back to be tweaked... More
