Good food with original specials and menu changing regularly! The restaurant gets loud and noisy at peak hour, but still nice to eat there.

The pasta choices are plentiful. I'm nit a fish lover, but Francesca has the best Talapia and I love it. Francesca's salad is great. Its cold, crisp and tasty. The bread is crusty - just the way I like it. Oil for dipping is fresh. Parking in downtown Naperville is not easy, but if you can walk (I can't) garages... More

When this restaurant first opened in Naperville, it quickly became one of our favorites. As the years past we moved on to others but recently came back "for old times sake". Happy to report that its as good as it ever was. The service is prompt, the food is great, the portions are ample and the price is reasonable. We're... More

We had pasta, chicken, veal and grilled cheese. My daughter who is a grilled cheese mania wasn't loving her sandwich but really liked the Caesar salad and pasta. Our meals were very good and flavourful. It's a nice atmosphere, semi noisy but not too loud, economical and kid friendly. A wonderful quaint restaurant with friendly attentive staff.

Highly recommend La Sorella's tomato cream sauce...Menu changes daily with a handful of staples... Great atmosphere and portions. Service is good to very good +, but they are BUSY! Servers are polite and knowledgeable. Check out this downtown Naperville restaurant.

One of my favorite date nights is doing a wine tasting across the street and then coming to La Sorella for dinner! if you get a seat in the front window, you can... More
