Not only was there great food but the piano and trumpet played offered a wonderful note to the dining experience. if you would like some fine... More

We took my mother their for a retirement dinner. The food was top notch as was the service. Be aware though Francesco's has a dress code in their dining area. NO HATS. This is a nice place for celebrations. Dress nice. They have a piano man wit accompanyment for ambience. Fine dining prices but well worth it.

Attended the Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts concert on Saturday October 4th. The band was great, the room was very nice, good sound, the service was also good until I visited the restroom. When I retuned, was away from my table 4 to 5 minutes, my drink was gone, my money was gone, and the people behind me had... More

This place was once great, nice lunch with excellent bar service. Now it fancies itself as upscale Chicago, opening at 1130 for lunch and closing at 230 for a 'break' not a friendly place at all anymore and the prices continue to rise.

The atmosphere was very nice, the food was good. Everyone there was dressed nice on a Friday night - only one man in jeans. Prices were reasonable for a nicer restaurant $30 for 14 oz NY strip and grilled shrimp special, $17 for cheese tortellini. Everyone was happy with their meal. There was live music - piano and soft trumpet... More

Passing through Rockford, found Franchesco's pretty much by accident and were so glad we did. Great food, cocktails prepared just right and... live music during supper. We might even come up with an excuse to visit Rockford again just to go back!

The atmosphere is very upscale and beautiful... nice place for a romantic dinner or special occasion. The service was great, food was delicious, nice menu options, and I can't emphasize enough the luscious, classy atmosphere. We were all so pleased with our meals and deserts. We will be back... highly recommend.

I have been here numerous times with family and for work and it has always been top notch. The food is excellent and service is the best in this area. They have their own bakery in the kitchen where they make their own breads and desserts. The atmosphere is phenomenal for this area and is the only place like it.... More

The atmosphere was really good and the service was even better. We were with a group and everyone was able to try something different. The server was very helpful for those whose Italian taste where different.
