They closed without telling me. It literally closed 6 hours before my reservation and nobody told me it was closed until I got there.
My wife and I have dined there a number of times and have always had good meals. I decided to take my wife there to celebrate Valentines Day and once again we were pleased. Our meals were good, reasonably priced, and our service was good. We will definitely return.
We just heard this restaurant closed, which is a shame for us because we just discovered it. It was a wonderful experience.
Good Food. Had a problem fulfilling or order and went out of their way to make it right.
Food was delicious, especially the fresh hot bread and the chocolate lava tort with mint gelato. Wide variety of Italian menu choices with a handful of other entrees, sufficient wine list both by the glass and bottle, good desert selection and express to wash it down. Beer selection was a little light. We were celebrating a retirement in a small group and didn't spare expenses. If you do a bottle of wine and all 3 courses, it won't be cheap. However, two could have a great meal and drinks for $60-75 and it'd be worth it.
Went here for a low-key bachelorette party (only 5 ladies). They were very accommodating and friendly. We loved the central location, and the food was great. Everyone was pleased with their meals.
The service was excellent. A nice place to relax and enjoy the evening.
I was thrilled to be able to make the reservation earlier that day. It was a busy night with it being the end of Restaurant Week in Madison. The service was great as was the food.
We chose Francesca's because someone in our group has a gluten/dairy allergy. I called Francesca's and the hostess said they could accommodate no problem, so we decided to try it. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and professional and the food was great. We did have an error and an appetizer was brought out that was not gluten free. Our gluten allergy friend ordered the appetizer and made sure to repeat that he was gluten/dairy free, but the waitress accidentally brought the version with gluten. The mood changed for the worse when our friend double checked and had already eaten the dish with gluten. They were out of the wine we ordered and also a dish our friend ordered. The rest of the experience was overall very nice- a good choice for dinner.
We're fairly frequent diners, the food is consistently good. This time, we were in and out inside of 45 minutes, faster paced than we usually prefer.
