My sister and I recently had reservations for lunch at this popular Frankfort, IL restaurant. We were seated at our table in the middle of one of the dining rooms - our first clue should have been the 2 sets of long 'pushed-together' tables that we observed on either side of our table. The noon time rush began (we were... More

Wonderful Italian food in a charming setting. The restaurant is slightly loud so it is challenging to have a conversation. However, the food is wonderful! They have a selection of pizzas and sandwiches. The entrees are a nice portion and all the food was very fresh tasting. They had a lemon fish special the day we stopped in and it... More

Francesca's is our go-to restaurant in town. Food is always good at reasonable prices. Corkage fee is $20. Kids menu is available. Service is usually good, sometimes during busy times it can be a little spotty. But overall, no complaints!

While this is part of a chain of Francesca's, it is important to understand this isn't a typical red sauce Italian restaurant. It offers more complex pasta dishes, pastas and main entrees. The Quattra staggioni pizza is one of my favorites. But the roast chicken is also great! We've been here many times. Service can be hit or miss depending... More

I suprised my husband for our anniversary by traveling to Frankfort for a mini staycation. The food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful. The location surrounding Francesa was very beautiful setting the tone for us as we were walking into the restaturant. We had a great time and enjoyed the ambiance and food tremendously. Definitely recommended!
