Very difficult to have a conversation. It's very loud, and we were sitting in the "quiet room"!

The food was good but you dont even get a salad or soup included with your meal so it overpriced for being in downtown frankfort

The food was good, service was good but we felt rushed. We were asked 4 times if we were done so they could box up or take our plates. The music was way too loud. We did ask them to turn it down and they did, a little.

Food was not “up to par” with previous visits. Red sauce was “gummy” and minestrone soup tasted “canned”. My usual Barrington Francesca’s is much better(and consistent)!

Ambience and food was good; however room was very loud due to 8 children at one table. Could not have a conversation without talking loudly.

We went there for desert after a Sunday Evening in the Park .
The waitress was asked specifically to have the kitchen crisp up the choux paste part of the Profitterol . They have done this before .

She assured us they Always do that .
Well , they didn‘t .
Two orders of Rubber .
If I wanted just Gelato I would order that .
The idea of Profitterols is a glace over a crisp shell with creamy goodness inside .
Not Rubbery goo .
Get it right or take it off the menu .

We ordered steak and truffle fries that was a special and they told us they ran out of it so we ordered chicken and asked if we could still get truffle fries the waiter told us yes- the chicken came and it was super salty couldn’t eat it. I ordered a coke had to ask for it twice and when they brought it they said they ran out of clean glasses so they gave it to me in a plastic cup - we also had ordered spinach as a side to the steak which we didn’t want if we couldn’t get the steak but they brought it anyways. The waiter was rude when we asked where our truffle fries were and told us well you changed the order so...
Truffle fries were not truffle at all they tasted like Burger King fries - spinach a over salted too - waiter barely gave us the time of day he was more interested in another table that had staff in it. Worst meal worst service wont be back to that Francescas
There is no excuse for super salty food or salty waiter and plastic cups!

Had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. It was for outdoor dining but that still seemed like a bit much.

I brought my family to Francesca's for their Teacher Appreciation dinner. The food as always was excellent, the service superb but the noise level was too high to hold any sort of conversation. We were seated at a table for six but the configuration made it even more difficult to talk as part of the party was too far away from the other part of the party. Otherwise, I highly recommend Francesca Fortunato.

As always a great time at Francesca's Fortunato in Frankfort. Kathy our server is excellent at her job and always makes you feel like you're at home and takes great care of her customers. Downtown Frankfort is beautiful and it's always a joy to go to there for lunch or dinner.

National Lasagna Night. It was good but portions was very small and the cheese had slipped off the entire top because kitchen server had too many dishes he was carrying and they were at angles. Kathy our main Server is an awesome Rock Star!
