La Sorella di Francesca
The food was great, as wasThe food was great, as was the service. Some of the tables are very close together, making private conversation a bit difficult. We like the ambience in general, and the service was excellent. The wine list had a wide selection, though very little could be considered "moderate" in price. I didn't feel that the menu and restaurant as a whole, should dictate the large percentage of wine that is priced as high as it was. We found something acceptable, but choices were pretty limited in the $30 to $40 range.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a go-to for fantasticThis is a go-to for fantastic Italian food in Naperville. Best Francesca's of them all, without question. On this occasion we had the rigatoni with sausage, pancetta and onions in a light three-cheese sauce (think more of a broth base - not a heavy cream sauce) and it was outstanding. Also had the pizza for the first time and was blown away by how authentic and fresh it tasted. The server recommended two excellent whites for us - both were fantastic. Service was great. Place gets a tad noisy, but I don't mind too much.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat dinerI've eaten here a few times and the food has always been exceptional.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was close to outstandingIt was close to outstanding but still, very good indeed.

My husband and I have a favorite appetizer and salad that aren't always on the menu, but they are willing to serve it to us if they have the ingredients -- love that! I had a risotto as my entree and my husband had a pasta and both were fresh and delicious! This is our favorite Italian restaurant in the area and they have never disappointed.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was terrific, salmonFood was terrific, salmon is delicious and pasta is so tasty. We had a large group and the restaurant is loud enough so you don't feel self-conscience about talking to a friend at the other end of the table, but not overly noisy. Service was great. One of my Naperville favorites.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT EXPERIENCE EVERYTIME...myEXCELLENT EXPERIENCE EVERYTIME...my husband and I love this restaurant.

The bruschetta special was also outstanding. I also liked the fact that I could find a decent glass of red at a reasonable price (Malbec).4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. AmbianceFood was great. Ambiance fair--cold air from the ventilation system was often blowing onto my table. Mentioned several times to the wait staff, and it was corrected momentarily, but not entirely as it resurfaced a second time. You folks need to look at your overal HVAC system, it's operability, and controls.

It is a great restaurant for a special night out. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and New Year's Eve there this year! They will create special dinners that are not on the menu! The service is remarkable! We love the location and return frequently!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!La Sorella is consistently great. We love how they have the usual entrees, etc., but always have a few items that are seasonal. We shared two "salads", one was a roasted onion and sausage creation that you 'spread' on bread...awesome, and the other was squash, coupled with mozzarella cheese....delicious. We then had two pasta dishes, one with scallops and the other their "healthier" version with whole wheat pasta. Both were outstanding! We'll be back for more soon!12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
