Last night my family went for dinner at Franchesco's and first our dinner was outstanding. I had the Sea Bass and it was out of this world, another had Prime Rib which is the best I have ever had at any restaurant and another had Kim's Cod which was also out of this world. We then attended a 4th Annual... More

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Rockford area. Great date night. Weekends have live music. Food is out of this world. Great atmosphere and services. Been here several times and never disappointed.

It has been a while since we have been to this place, I don't know why we have stayed away so long. They have and outstanding menu with some very nice choices, they have a friendly staff and very good drinks. We were there for a special birthday and all the dishes were very good.

Venue was utilized to host a fund raiser. We had an excess of 220 attendees. The servers were amazing and very accommodating. The group was very satisfied with everything the restaurant had to offer.

The food was good; that's not the issue. Our drinks took 10+ minutes both rounds, and I'm not exaggerating. Two other tables got theirs before ours, and a vodka soda is not difficult. They forgot the au jus with the prime rib. The host stopped at both tables on each side of us, but ignored us. Considering we were 20... More

Two couples out for dinner before an evening at the Coranado. We were promptly seated facing the three fireplaces which glowed brightly. Our waitress was efficient in taking our drink orders, knowledge in understanding the wine selection, scored points when she brought a sample of a Chardonnay to make sure it matched the tasting preferences of one of our diners....

The atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing. I liked that the food was not rushed out and fit the elegant atmosphere. Our service was excellent and our needs attended to without asking. The food from the beginning to the Banana Foster was excellent.

As always, Franchesco's is a solid choice. We decided to go for our anniversary. Even with a wedding and many homecoming kids around, the food, drinks and service never suffered. The wait time was a bit high, even with reservations but 30 minutes flies by.

We splurged the other night and I had filet stuffed with Boursin cheese- it was so, so good. My husband had the Miso Seabass and he was very happy with it. Our service was excellent (We had Able as our server). We have never had a bad meal here.

We enjoyed a dining experience at Franchesco's during their anniversary celebration week. Although we have dined here several times before we are not frequent diners at this restaurant. I would say that the best thing going for this restaurant is the atmosphere and ambiance. It was very busy. Service was slightly uneven, meaning that at times we waited significantly and... More
