Very nice time. Great food. Birthday Treat for the table was a nice surprise
Extremely good food and great service. Favorite restaurant in Elmhurst
Linguine with shrimp etc was delicious and hot. My pet peeve is food that is not served hot. Good wine list and attentive server.
This is becoming our fave casual-night-out place.
Great service and consistently delicious food - every time.
Calamari - fried or seared is wonderful.
Will be back ... a lot
Great food! Great service!
Bartender fantastic as always, 🍋🍸, 🐔 Parmesan delicious.
Just a nice place for conversation and ambiance.
We sat outside on a Sunday afternoon. Waitress was overwhelmed and service was super slow. Food got cold the minute it came outside. Coffee was even cold. $25 for a bowl of pasta that wasn’t good is too much. $100 wasted for me and my husband.
Never a bad meal and always a great experience!
Food was fantastic. Service was great. Dennis is the best! Overhead music did not match the restaurant
Great service and the food was wonderful. We felt safe with the distance between guests and all worker wore masks.
We've been to Francesca Amici's many times over the years and it's always been very good. This last visit was Great! We noticed and ordered several new menu additions which really highlighted the Chef's culinary skills. Can't wait to go back. Still thinking about the prosciutto appetizer w/ the honey drizzle!
Service outside on the street was very slow. Waiter only came by once.
Our dinner was wonderful! The waiter, who was also the bartender, made my husband’s martini to perfection! We clinked glasses and said happy anniversary. We didn’t make a big deal out of it. Our salads & entrees were very tasty. We were going to order dessert, when the waiter brought out the chocolate brownie cake with ice cream with a candle for us! He heard us say happy anniversary- how thoughtful of him! It was a nice gesture. That’s why we love Francesca’s! Good food, excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere. It’s one of our favorite restaurants.
Great food and service. Fun neighborhood location
Food was outstanding, Dennis the server was great as always!

This place never disappoints.
Seats well spaced and felt safe at our high top in bar area.
Will be back.
Food and service are consistently good here.
Everything was great especially the food
Excellent evening dinner with family. We enjoyed appetizers, good wine and delicious entrees, including salmon, octopus, calamari, and pasta dishes.
Food was outstanding, service was great. Loved everything about it
Was not pleased with the amount of gnats and flies while we were dining eating indoors. It was super frustrating.
Great meal and service. Friendly atmosphere.Will be going back again.
Great service and excellent food. Always very fresh.
Francesca's always provides great, friendly service and wonderful food. We sat inside in the bar but they also had a fan running to keep the air circulating. Everyone was in masks and gloves.
Our server Ellie was amazing! Very attentive and knowledgeable about the wine list and all of the menu items. We will definitely be back!
Excellent all around. Love this place!
Great service and food!
$18 for small lunch portion is too expensive for Elmhurst lunch
We’ve been to Francesca’s many time and it is usually really good but went last week and wasn’t that good. The music was loud hip hop which is not good at a nice dining restaurant. More appropriate for a club. The carpaccio was great as always. I had hot pasta with cold tomato sauce and ordered shrimp on the side. 3 medium shrimp for $9. And it came on a separate plate with tons of garlic which I didn’t notice so I poured it all over my pasta. I tasted garlic all night. But what ruined the meal for me & my husband was the loud hip hop music. Couldn’t wait to leave. We will go back to Francesca’s again as it is very good but it was my birthday. I put that on the reservation. No mention of it from the hostess. They didn’t even look at that. Very disappointed. Note to restaurant-please look at the special occasion spot on the reservation. NOISE level-Too loud
The food was delicious. In light of COVID-19, the social distancing, face mask, the staff made us feel safe and comfortable.
Our food was fabulous, staff was very friendly & attentive. A local favorite restaurant.
I love Francesca's. Always great food and great service.
I love Francesca’s— it’s my all time favorite restaurant in Elmhurst. This is the only restaurant I have eaten at since COVID, and they are doing an absolutely amazing job.
The outdoor seating was perfect and our server was excellent.
Food was very good. Service was a little slow. But what got me was the cost. Lunch for two with an appetizer and 2 glasses of wine, at $100(plus tip). They will not last at these prices, when there are competitive places with just as good of food, at lower prices.
Always excellent food & service! They certainly know how to take care of their customers, especially during this time of COVID. All staff wears masks and always courteous! We love the al fresco dining, and hope that will continue!
