Best Lasagna ever

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... read 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

Food is good, but it is a very small place. If you like your space and privacy this is not the place to go. if you are visiting West Dundee and don't want to drive any where this would be the place to go for Italian......trust me I'm Italian and this is close to home!

Hands down our favorite place to eat, even with the kids ( 4&7) The olive oil is seasoned to perfection and goes wonderfully with their starter bread. Nothing beats their marinara sauce which even if you think you hate anchovies, you will LOVE this sauce. Made with anchovies and lots of garlic. yummmm! Pasta is always fresh and aldente. Their...

We dined here last night and had a terrific evening. The restaurant is a wee bit crowded with small size tables; but, that is very typical of a European/Italian restaurant so it is fine. The restaurant is not noisy so while tables are close, intimate conversations are easy. The service is attentive and our waitress was knowledgeable regarding the menu.... More

This place is the Capital Grille of Italian Restaurants - overpriced, mediocre service, and not worth going to unless you are on someone else's expense account. Comparing it with the Italian Restaurants I go to, there is no comparison. Tuscany's in OakBrook is much better as well as Mandile's in Algonquin. At least at Mandile's, you get a salad and... More
