Andy was both our server and bartender, great guy, great service!
Francesca's Amici is the BEST place in Elmhurst to Always get GREAT food and SERVICE.
Great food and great service as always. Enjoy celebrating birthdays and other occasions here.
I wanted to like this place. The Francesca’s franchise is usually always good and consistent. We had a reservation on Mother’s Day. It started off poorly when the server dropped off four water glasses - all of which were dirty (greasy finger prints all over Each of them). I alerted him to this fact and they were quickly replaced. However, I am not sure how one table gets four dirty glasses. Bread arrived after about 15 minutes (longer than expected). We ordered calamari for an appetizer which was very good. My wife ordered a pizza which was just ok. My daughter got the vodka pasta special which was very good. However, my gnocchi dish had good flavor but was barely warm when it arrived. Overall I left feeling underwhelmed. Maybe just an off night, but I won’t be returning.
Great food and service
And a thank you for recognizing nurses week
They were so very accommodating for our business team meeting and luncheon. Couldn't have been nicer. So attentive and the food was wonderful, as always. Really went over and above. Thank you!
Food was good, service was not. We made a reservation, and needed to tell 3 different people that while we waited for a table. Waiter was slow to come to the table, slow to bring our drinks. After taking our dinner order, never returned to see if we wanted another drink or wine when our meal arrived. Completely forgot the minestrone we ordered. Past visits I've felt like they were rushing us through our meal, this visit it was if they forgot we were there.
Whenever we plan an Italian meal at a different venue, we always end up saying, "it's not as good as Francesca's Amici! This restaurant never disappoints us and we absolutely love the Insalata all Francesca paired with the Pappardelle con Ragu di Maiale! Absolutely delicious!!
Pasta under cooked and Roon was way to noisy. If you are going to have a high end restaurant you can’t have families with a bunch of loud kids come in.
Love Francesca's! Always great food, great service, Dennis is fantastic! Very attentive.
We had made reservations ahead of time so they had prepared a table for us and our two guests in a corner booth. We were seated immediately and received impeccable service; the food was excellent as usual (we have dined there several times on special occasions). Highly recommend Francesca's to anyone looking for a special night out!
Food was delish. Had the lunch pre fix $17 well worth it!
I had the pasta with calamari and the calamari was overcooked. Sauce was pretty bland. Overall too pricey for the meal I had and wine.
Always a good meal and good value at Francesca's Amici.
We love it here. Everyone is so engaging and remember us. It makes us feel like part of the family!
Consistently delicious food and great services. I usually have a seafood dish and enjoy the preparations.
Have visited several times and always with good result.
Excellent but very loud
The food taste never fail us to revisit for so many times ...
As always the service and food was excellent. The friendliness of the wait staff and bartender always is fantastic.
My husband and I dined here recently. We have some special dietary needs and the server was especially accommodating. All of the food came out as ordered based on those special needs. Believe me when I tell you that sometimes food is not served as ordered in other restaurants. I appreciate not having to wait for my food to be remade!
Our dinners were delicious! I had the scallop special served over wild mushrooms and asparagus. My husband had the chicken romana. It is his favorite dish. The food was excellent, as always.
The restaurant was busy, but not overly crowded. Our server was excellent and attentive. It was a fabulous dining experience. We will return to dine again soon.
Celebrating a 60th birthday.
This is probably THE best of the Francesca's in the Chicago land area.
Great food and great service. You really can't ask for anything more!! Love it here.
Highly recommend Francesca's. The Service is outstanding!!!
We’ve been to Francesca’s many times. Recently the service has really fallen off. I don’t know if our server had too many tables or what but we waited and waited. She seemed to disappear
We were shocked when the little 8” pizza came out looking and tasting like a mushy, frozen microwave pizza from 7-Then my mussels came in a thick sauce that looked and tasted like they opened a can of tomato paste and poured it on. What happened to this Francesca’s?! It was literally inedible. Sorry to have to say this, but someone should fix the food quick. I don’t think we can return.
A special setting to celebrate special moments. We enjoyed each and every course . The food is spectacular!
Excellent service, food choices are terrific, wonderful atmosphere. It’s one of our favorite restaurants!
Love Francesca's! Dennis is great!
Very nice we had reservations food and service top notch. Great place clean and friendly great happy hour😁
We loved our meal
Very average. Lots of tables open yet they stuck us in the back room. Food was bland and didn’t see our server very often. Would not go back.
Cute place and service was good, but expected the food to be better. Haven't been to a Francesca's for years, but I remember the food being much better and expected more from a big chain restaurant that's been around. The food was just so-so. Not sure if the thermostat wasn't working but it was way too hot in the restaurant and they couldn't get it to cool off.
Service was wonderful. They took care of our family and made it a great dining experience
This restaurant never disappoints. The short rib pasta dish is outstanding and I love the deals offered by this location. In addition, the wait staff is superb.
The food is always great but this time my salmon was the best ever!
Never disappoints wonderful meal with great friends
As usual, the meal at Francesca’s was impeccable. The drinks were excellent. I had a negroni, my husband a manhattan, and our friends had a vodka martini and a scotch.
Appetizers for: we split the carpaccio. Our friends had the bruschetta and the fried calamari. For entrees, two of us had the rigatoni, one had the special ravioli, and my husband had the monkfish. He thought it was overdone, but still delicious. The men opted for ice cream for dessert, and I had my usual profiteroles. This is a restaurant that is reliable and that we frequent because of its consistency.
Attentive service. Great Food. While somewhat expensive, it still presents good value.
