It is always reliable, but this time we really appreciated how excellent it remains despite the fact that there are so many Francesca's now and this location in Little Italy has been open for a long long time. Bravo!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be a classicTalk about comfort food!! The Francesca franchise remains solid and true to their food. The added twist of offering dishes from an extensive gluten-free menu shows their commitment to their customers. We ordered salmon and tilapia and enjoyed both dishes. The caprese salad was extremely fresh and the creme brulee was very good. Highly recommended to all.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMinconsistentWe were a group of 12.

My daughter and I split our meals because we couldn't decide, so I tried both the Tilipia and a pasta special. Both were outstanding. My husband had the roast chicken which he said was juicy and flavorful, and my son had the chicken arribiatta which he also enjoyed. Would definitely return again.!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFrancesca is consistentFrancesca is consistent in its food quality and always willing to change things up to meet your needs. We have been going there for years and is still one of our favorite Italian restaurants to go to and bring out-of-town guests. Very occasionally, there is a waiter that is less "customer service." On the most part, the wait persons are very helpful.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was wonderful evenThe staff was wonderful even with a full house on Mother's Day! The food was excellent and our waitress Amy was there every time we needed something!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful experience.We enjoyed Mother's Day brunch at Francesca's. It was my mom's first visit and she loved it. The waiter was great and the food was superb. I'll be back again soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMust visitWe came here after graduation - it was easy to get a reservation not necessary though. Good food, great service, and a lively atmosphere - if you want a quiet dinner - this is not the place. Lines at the door for seating.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious foodThe menu doesn't give much of a selection but the items they do have are amazing. The serving sizes are a pretty good size you can take a lot home or serve family style. The pasta and pizza are very good I did not try any of the chicken or steak so I don't know how those are but I'm sure they are just as good. The dessert was fantastic, the serving sizes are perfect for dessert.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFrancesca's on TaylorFrancesca's provides a great dining experience.

The food and combination of sauces is second to none, with personalized friendly table service, with the best hostess ever! I have dined with friends and colleagues many, many times over the years and have never been disappointed.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the only restaurantsOne of the only restaurants where I get something different every time since the menu changes so frequently.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic. OurThe food was fantastic. Our server was not so great. He was terribly inattentive.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways something for everyone.All their places are consistently good and specials create variety for frequent visitors. Pastas come in half orders but we always enjoy taking some home. Roast chicken, fish, pizzas, pastas, salads range from comfort style to more exotic. Service is friendly.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAn ambrosial explosion of flavors!The prosciutto-wrapped tilapia was outstanding! The white wine sage sauce was aromatic, yet delicate and complemented the roasted prosciutto and fish perfectly. Each bite was like an ambrosial explosion of flavors in my mouth! I was still raving to my friends and family about this dish days after I ate at Francesca's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and, in particular,The food and, in particular, the waitresse's recommendations, were outstanding! And we had a very nice bottle of chianti ($74) which was not inexpensive but very good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAdore it!The food and service was great! I love a Italian restaurant that has the real deal and not fate sloppy greasy drenched pasta. The flavors are fresh. I have no complaints. Loved outlet waitress she had a sense of humor and checked in with us just the right amount and at the right time. I would definitely go back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFrancesca's was fantastic.Francesca's was fantastic. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite we can count on!Francesca's on Taylor continues to be one of our favorite places. Like the best Italian neighborhood places, they are both family-friendly and have excellent food. I have never had a bad meal there. The menu always has a lot of interesting choices - whether you're looking for something really tasty and low fat (swordfish with artichokes, for instance) or whether you want to plunge into the whole cream-sauce, cheese, meat experience. A special delight - for me - has always been their beef carpaccio appetizer. Enough to share, it's a great balance of flavors and textures - paper-thin raw beef, shaved parmesano, lovely greens.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingMy outstanding experience at Francesca's on Taylor began as soon as I walked through the door. I was greeted, "It's good to see you," as though I was returning to a family's house. I felt right at home and was given excellent service by the server throughout the dinner. He was very kind and attentive to our needs. The ambiance of the restaurant made for a very comfortable feel and the food (the salmon) was delicious. This was the second time I dined here and they have yet to fail me! I will be returning and continuing to spread the word of this great restaurant.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFrancesca on TaylorI had to bring my cousin, so I didn't want to go somewhere really quiet. The servers are very friendly and there are lots of selections you can pick from. The pasta dishes were just okay.. This was my second time there and I think the menu changed since I went there last time. I loved the food the first time, but this time it was just okay.. I wouldn't want to order those dishes again, though. For better food, I would recommend Davanti's Enoteca that's just across the street of this restaurant. However, the server was so friendly, so it's a tough call.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a great time!My friend and I came her to celebrate her birthday. We had a lot of fun. Since it was lunch time on a Sat. it was slow. They did not rush us. My friend ordered pasta with sausage and she enjoyed it. We shared calamari that was delicious. I had a pizza that was fresh and delicious. They brought us a dessert to share to celebrate her birthday. The host was very friendly and came over to wish her happy birthday. Next time I will come with my husband for dinner.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to celebrateA great place to celebrate special occasions.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Restaurant Week lunch menu. I thoroughly enjoyed the green bean, tomato and red onion salad followed by the special spinach-tomato individual pizza. My dessert of house made mango sorbet was the perfect end.
