Great place!!! Really good food and wonderful service staff. Never knew it was there, tucked away in a little shopping mall. Decor was really nice.

“Finally !!! A Great restaurant on the South Side”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

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.

“1st time here, wonderful!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

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.

“Great food and service - large business dinner”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

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.

“Outstanding food & service...”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from a co-worker for a business dinner...they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service was outstanding and spot on. Our meals came relatively quickly; the presentation was attractive but not 'fluffy'. The food was out of this world; I had the 4-cheese raviloi in a mushroom and prosciutto cream sauce that was on special...wow! The portion sizes were more than adequate. The entree prices ranged from $15-$30 so I felt it was reasonable considering the portions and the quality; the location is a little tough to spot if you are not looking for it or familiar with the area. I would visit again as well as recommend Francesca's.
