Always count on Franchesca
FC was wonderful, the food was exceptional & the service just as good as the food! Pound for pound you can always count on a Franchesca's for a quality evening.

Noise was way too much. That really detracted from an otherwise excellent meal.

By far the best restaurant
By far the best restaurant in the area with them being one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. Been coming here for years and have had similar experiences EVERY time. The menu's are updated and changed ever 1-2 weeks so, aside from the constant food favorites they serve, you never know what will be on the menu. Get the carpacio and tiramisu, you WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED.

My father has a restricted diet and they were willing to help create a dish that would fit his needs. Everyone loved there meals. One of our favorites.

A returning customer...
I have been to this location several times and they never disappoint me... great job in the food and service and I will keep coming back.

Mike (the manager) runs an outstanding establishment. The menu is always full of fresh, tasty options that represent authentic Italian fare. While always dependable to be great, the menu does change over time - which is nice because it keeps things interesting. My wine palate is not sophisticated enough to truly appreciate the extensive list, but whatever I choose is always great! Definitely recommend the Campagna location!!!!

Had my 50th birthday celebration with a dozen family and friends. Everything was great, done just the way we asked -- from the drinks to the food to the service to our preferred seating location and arrangement. We love this restaurant, and we were happy to share it with our loved ones.

We had a reservation and were going out for out 31st anniversary. We arrived 15 minutes early and they offered to seat us immediately. However, the table was a tiny table for 2 (1 would have fit more comfortably) in a corner against the wall. It was very cramped and uncomfortable and we did notice that other tables with 4 seats had only 2 people at them so I was very disappointed that we were stuck in the tiny corner. The food, drinks and service were outstanding, we would definitely go again, but only if we could request a better table in advance.

Food and Atmosphere
I was looking for someplace special for a date night. I had another place in mind but made a last minute decision and Francesca's Campagna was the spot. Not a rush rush too loud and too bright type of place. Just the perfect spot a night out and get caught up. Wait staff and personnel were exceptional with detailed attention to the food and needs. I will definitely be back!

My wife and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary and couldn't have enjoyed a better experience. The hostess and wait staff were warm and friendly, timely with their service and our privacy. Loved it Loved it Loved it.

Best ravioli ever
We eat out at least 4 times a week. Been to many an Italian Restaurant. This place had the best by a long shot ravioli yet. It wa the Ravioli in mushroom cream sauce. Love the location and the ambiance. If ever within in 30 minute drive time go there.

Thanks so much, Francesca's Campagna! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service was great! First we had nine people for a 7:15 reservation. Then we switched it to 6:30, you said no problem. Then we added two more people, no problem. You were very accommodating and we sincerely appreciated it! We had a lovely evening dining at your restaurant.

Great touch of the city in the burb
LOVE Francesca's! Always an outstanding meal and never have a bad thing to say about Francesca's. The service on my night was a bit slow but otherwise the food was outstanding as usual.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went to Francesca's for our anniversary. I love Italian food and was impressed with the whole meal. Our appetizers were fresh and served in a timely fashion. Our meal, paired with a superb wine, was wonderful. Would highly recommend!

The pasta is always cooked perfectly!!! All the dishes are always excellent.

My husband and I celebrated his 40th birthday, we decided to end the evening by having dinner at Francesca's. We have been lucky enough to get the best seats. It really is terribly nice and the food blows you away..... exceedingly good. I am English but have spent many family holidays in Italy so I would like to think I know good Italian cuisine when I find it. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would like to add there was some young children families there, but it was not too noisy or distracting... ( probably because we have five of our own ).
I am certain we will enjoy Francesca's for many years to come.

Perfect every time!!
I've dined here a few times now. A+ across the board. I'd mention the negatives if they existed. Perfect!!

True Neighborhood Gem
We have been going to Francesca's for years and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food or service. It is nicely priced and usually consistent. Great wine list.

Food was very good. Being
Food was very good. Being a little more of an upscale place pricing wise, the menu was somewhat limited because they want only authentic dishes I suppose. The food tasted great and the service was good, but with only about 8 different plates on the menu it's more of a special occasion kind of place instead of being in the regular rotation, or else you could run out of new things to try rather quickly.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
David, our waiter that evening is not only very knowledgeable with the menu but very outgoing and friendly. We look forward to having our dinners here and having David make that evening for us very special.

Specials change often; can always count on good meal; they offer whole wheat pasta, but you have to ask it is not always noted on the menu; generally very good service with friendly staff; bar area can be very congested; temperature control could be improved- 4-top by host station is very cold in winter

Great service and great food!
Great service and great food! One dish wasn't as flavorful as the others but was still very good.

Great dinner and great service.
Great dinner and great service. Our waitress , Melissa, was very efficient, friendly, and knowledgable. Manager also took the time to chat with us and get our feedback. We'll be back soon!

Host was personable and a joy to converse with. Great waitress. Food was unique and interesting. Great wines. Menu not what a meat and potatoes person would enjoy.

Tasty, Fresh Italian Fare
Everything we tasted was delicious. They offer a modest menu and a decent wine list. We were seated right by the server station so the ambiance was not as romantic as we would have liked. Our server or a bus boy/assistant stopped by very often also. Some people enjoy being constantly checked on, but at a finer dining establishment, the customers should be left to enjoy their food. Even though we ordered drinks and an appetizer, we were rushed through our meal. Luckily the food made up for this issues, everything was fresh and prepared perfectly.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have eaten at several of the Francesca restaurants in the past. As expected, this one did not disappoint us.....great service and great food, as we've come to expect from this family of Scott Harris restaurants. They were able to prepare a meal for me which I inquired about which is sometimes on their menu, but wasn't on this particular evening...a true sign of customer service excellence! We highly recommend this restaurant, try it... you'll like it!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Let me go back
The food was great and the service quietly attentive. Treated like a regular and friend. It was a special occasion and they more than exceeded expectations. The management and wait staff made sure that all was ok and surprised us with some special treats. Felt like I was at a fine dining restaurant in France
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife is gluten free, not by choice, but by necessity. The menu offers great GF options, but the waitress treated it too casually.

We had a great meal! Food
We had a great meal! Food was wonderful as usual. The server was extremely friendly and very attentive. He asked about the allergy concern the first time he came to the table, which I like that I didn't have to tell him. I liked that the restaurant actually read the comments with the reservation.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the moment we walsked in and was greeted til we left our group of 8 was treated like royalty! Our server was fantastic! Can't wait to go back!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another Great Evening!
Francesca's Campagna never disappoints! From Mike greeting you at the door, to Carlos behind the bar and Kate, David, and Jessica waiting to serve you, this restaurant serves top notch food in a very comfortable environment. Cannot wait to head back again!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good choice for a nicer dinner
Food was creatively prepared and well seasoned. Service was good. The only negative was that our server was visibly annoyed when we only ordered entrees with no sides or appetizers.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Francesca's is a small local Italian restaurant with small size tables, crowded, and busy waiters!!!!!!! Not a place for a romantic dinner......." but the food was awesome!!!!!. So fresh, menus prepared daily....I ordered the caprese salad with dinner and I can smell the aroma of fresh basil before it hit my table....if the delicious tastefull dishes don't get you.....watch out for their dangerous martini's.....I tried the Dundee Special....one martini is not enough....Definitely need reservations...... Cant wait to get back and try their risotto........West Dundee's best hidden secret......
