Description: Francesca’s on 95th opened its doors to guests in April of 2009 and joins the Francesca’s family of restaurants as the 18th addition to the family. This south-suburban Chicago outpost offers guests “simple rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices”; a winning recipe for Francesca’s since 1992. Their menu features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. An eclectic wine list and one-of-a-kind martini’s make the perfect accompaniment to an outstanding dining experience. Drawing its name from the main thoroughfare of Village of Oak Lawn, Francesca’s on 95th features a classically designed bar, lofty ceilings and a bustling trattoria feel. Striking photographs of rural Italian life by Paul Elledge line the walls to create a comfortable, urban setting throughout.

Always fabulous and caring,incredible staff and a limited menu that is PAID attention to by the chef.... Ambience will make you soo relaxed and then the service. Wow what can I say.
By limited menu I mean not one that has 55 items on it. They keep it simple and Fabulous and change it daily. We have NEVER been unhappy when we ate there. Yes there are other Francescas and they are all fine, but none can compare to the Oak Lawn location. And Lunch (to die for). What a joy to ESCAPE for the evening and not have to mortgage your life. We are there about once a month and they just keep getting better and better, which is hard to believe because they were faabulous to start Go, You will Love it.

The appetizers, service, ambiance, all great. The veal was literally the best veal I've ever had. Great spot for a romantic night out, or a business dinner.

We had a group of 12 at Francesca's for a business dinner. We were seated promptly and attended to right away. We asked for a variety of appetizers and those came to the table quickly. All the food was delicious. We then ordered our entrees and had a number of different items from the menu--pasta, halibut, Caesar salads--all were excellent. Our server provided a number of good recommendations. And Tuesday is $10 off wine bottles--a great deal. It was a terrific meal all the way around.

We visited the week of the 20th anniversary promotion. Meals were priced accordingly. I have to say that always the food and service are GOOD. I have to give a rave to the pizza. There is always consistent happy service and the cocktails are very good, but pricy. Usually visit here at least once monthly and have attended some of the wine dinners as well. Those have been excellent.

Food is very bland and overpriced. Service is just average at best.
