Pleasant Surprise

We came over from Elgin while visiting Judson College. Francesca's was surprisingly good. The portions were large and worth splitting. I had the best gnocci in a while. My wife had a saltimboca. Also very good. We left very filled and wished we had room for dessert. The location is on the main drag... read more

Also very good. We left very filled and wished we had room for dessert. The location is on the main drag (Higgins) and parking in the back.

This is not a 5 Star restaurant but it is a white linen eatery that does everything just right. Hostess is friendly attentive and accommodating from the moment you arrive. Server picks up on the theme and quickly puts in for warm house made Italian bread (infused olive oil and fresh ground pepper table side) The bus staff quickly waters... More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to. It was so good, we ate there two nights in a row. They had a nice wine selection as well as great cappuccino. The service was really good. I ordered the gnocchi. It was perfectly done with great sauce. I can't wait to go there again and eat.... More

Very Very delicious. I went back later in the week. I had one of the specials, spinach lasagna, and wow. It wasnt heavy like lasagna usually is. It was light and delicious. The sauce was to die for. I would go back again in a heartbeat. The only think I would change was the carpaccio. I wish the meat was... More

We had chicken in a sauce that was terrific. Fresh crusty bread and excellent appetizer. Service was fine... attentive but not obtrusive.

The restaurant is small cozy by the Fox River in downtown West Dundee and offers excellent food and service. We were fortunate and had a booth that made the dinner more romantic and intimate. We started with the calamari fritti for our appetizer and it was very tender and delicious! For our entres we shared the Gnocchi di Zucca al... More

I love Francesca's food but it is a shootin' match what kind of service you will get. This night, we had someone more interested in chatting with the host than filling my coffee cup or taking our order. One thing I dislike is when someone else brings out my food. I know it is so the food is delivered hot.... More

I love this little restaurant - it is located in a charming small town that is bisected by the Fox river. Great olive oil and bread (although you need to ask for cheese). The tortellini in vodka sauce was delicious, and the portion was huge. I had enough for lunch the next day and almost couldn't finish it. Iced tea... More
