In the heart of downtown Frankfort, I love walking into this place. It's interior is cozy with a nice bar setup. The food is excellent, I enjoyed the pepper and sausages, with a side of pasta, the marinara sauce was better then most with a nice taste, not bland like at many other places. Great for... read more

Francesca's Fortunato of Frankfort has never failed to impress! The beef carpaccio is outstanding, the polenta with mushrooms and parmesan is incredibly full of flavor and, as the menu changes regularly, I try to mix it up with my entrees and have yet to be disappointed! The staff is absolutely outstanding and the location can't be beat in the most... More

Food, Service and atmosphere were all perfect for our pre Halloween wedding night out. Surrounded by witches, goblins and other creatures of the night, we were more than pleased with every aspect of our stop here, Will be back again.

This is our go to Italian restaurant, have eaten there many many times. I have to say last time we were there, we weren't impressed by any of our meals. Will continue to go there though. I'm sure they will redeem themselves, it was a busy weekend night so maybe the kitchen was overwhelmed. We love the bruschetta and had... More

Great dining experience @ Francesca's. Server Mario was prompt & fun with excellent service. Dinner was Salmon with asparagus & grilled shrimp & scallops over pasta. Both selections were delicious. Dessert we shared a coconut cake with caramel drizzle. $140 for dinner, dessert, drinks, and tip. A wonderful evening out in Franfort IL.

We were at Francesca's Fortunato on Wednesday night with our entire family for a birthday celebration. The atmosphere was festive but it was quite loud and you could only hear the person sitting right next to or directly across from you The carpaccio is unlike any we've ever had; tender, thinly sliced raw sirloin with greens, asparagus, capers, tomatoes, mushrooms,...
