Francesca's on Taylor features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Chicago Magazine notes, "It brings a new kind of abbondanza to an old Italian neighborhood." It is the fourth restaurant opened by Chef Scott Harris, whose philosophy is to encourage the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices. Anne Spiselman of Crain's Chicago Business observes: "A rolled-mesh ceiling, warm woods and geometric light fixtures give the room a rather clubby look, brightened during the day by light coming through the windows facing the street. And, Francesca's

I was recommended to go to Francescas for date night. The food was delicious & the service was great! I ordered Rigatoni con Salsiccia e Lenticchie, my husband ordered the Salmone con Vongole. We will be definitely going back! I highly recommend it
We went prior to a concert at the United Center. Very convenient Uber ride from there. I loved my fettuccini with mushrooms. Very neighbohoodish with what looked like a lot of locals. Definitely would recommend.
We had dinner at Francesca's on Saturday evening, the food and service were terrific. We started with Calamari, which my son, a big fan of Calamari, said was the best ever--and no one disagreed. I had Polo Roma, he and our friend each had fettucine...More
