Francesca's Campagna Ratings and Reviews
We’ve eaten here many many times and have never had a bad meal. However, as usual the service is hit or miss. The bar is notoriously slow getting drinks to the table and our server never checked on us once. Great food sub par service. If you’re in a hurry you’re rolling the dice here.
This was our second visit to Francesca's Campagna in West Dundee, IL. My husband and I took his sister out to dinner, and none of us was disappointed. The calamari fritti is a delightful appetizer. We split 2 Caesar salads among us. Our entrees were all very good (Linguine Diavola con Pollo, Rigatoni alla Norcina, and Fettuccine alla Bolognese), and the portions are ample, so we each had plenty to take home for the next day. The staff treated my sister-in-law to a tiramisu for her birthday, which was a pleasant surprise. We will certainly return to this restaurant for special occasions, or when we're in the mood for an Italian meal.
Calamari had very heavy breading. My chicken was so overcooked I couldn't eat eat it. Our daughter's scallop dish had both hot and cold parts. My husband's pasta was chewy and tasted undercooked. The server took my dish off the check and gave me a desert, but acted like she really didn't understand what the problem was. We won't be back.
Beautiful little restaurant near the river. We split an appetizer and a salad, then had our own entrees. The food was delicious. The narrow building with hardwood floors made the noise level a little higher than we wanted; we had a loud party of four behind us. Still, it was a nice dinner out with my spouse.
Fantastic! We are regulars to this establishment. We drive 45 mins to enjoy their fabulous food! The menu changes regularly and it's all fresh, fresh, fresh! We recently took our friends there to experience it. They were thrilled with the place - service, food, everything!
Love the Franchesca's chain, but this one is closest to us and, in our opinion, the best!
Francesca Campagna is a West Dundee gem. The food is always fresh and tasty. The portions are substantial. The desserts are the perfect end to a perfect meal. The menu changes through out the week which means each meal can and will be different. Our favorite item is the carpaccio and we order it every time we visit. The wine list is lengthy while not being overbearing or pretentious. The service is unequaled and very personal. In addition to various pastas, chicken, beef and/or fish will be on the menu. Fresh bread with seasoned olive oil is a great start but make sure to leave room for a salad or soup. They have a full bar so linger over an aperitif with you dessert - you won’t regret it.
Our service and and food were outstanding. We were a party of 6 during prime time Saturday night, and the server is one of our favorites! He makes it a lot of fun for our kids, and is terrific with his wine service. He accommodates every special request, and everything always comes out perfectly.
Thanks for making this evening a wonderful night, and we are so happy we can always rely on the staff at Francescas!
Food was amazing and delicious but the service was absolutely horrible. If I'm paying $150 for dinner for 3, I do not expect to receive Olive Garden standards of services. When we first arrived it was early and slow but then as soon as our waiter received a large party he was no where to be found. We had to ask for cheese & bread, more wine and to look a dessert menu; we saw the food runner and busy boy more then our server. It was my mothers 55th birthday and she very disappointed because at the Arlington Height location we receive great quality and quantity of food and service each time we dine there
Francesca's is a fantastic restaurant in every respect with the single exception of table spacing which results is excessive noise. Once you get past that issue there is ABSOLUTELY nothing negative that can be said about this restaurant. The carpaccio is marvelous and well proportioned. Francesca's pasta is always cooked to perfection. If you want to add or remove a certain ingredient the staff will do their best to accommodate your request. For a small local restaurant the wine list is noteworthy and reasonably priced. My advice: give Francesca's a try and order the carpaccio and any of the pastas. You won't be disappointed.
