Thanks for the birthday ice cream!
We were Celebrating my husband Birthday as well as San Valentine. Food was very good, real Italian flavors (same as my parents home), music was good. Service was a little slow, I think it was because the restaurant was really crowded. Francesca's Intimo in Lake Forest is my place to go for Special Occasions.
Good food very flavorful. Good size portions. Small so sitting is a bit cramped.
My husband and I made reservations in advance for 7pm on a weekday and when we arrived the restaurant was almost fully booked and there was one table waiting for us. The table in our opinion was the worst table in there since it was the first table on the ground level and whenever the door open a cold breeze would hit straight at us. We reserved a table for this reason to avoid poor seating and we felt that was not successful and set the mood. We have been here before and liked the food so we came back hoping we could have an intimate dinner however it was pretty loud at that time and not much space between tables. The food was great as usual!
Also the restaurant does not have enough options for non alcoholic and non carbonated/caffeinated drinks so for example, pregnant women do not have a lot of choices for drinks.
We loved the Francesca's on Taylor and thought we would try Intimo but it just did not measure up, we are not sure if we will be back here.
Alway good food and service. Good variety on the menu.
Fantastic as always!
AS usual, our meals were very good. Service was doting and considerate. Do wish my chicken had a little more brown sauce--the sauce is what makes this entree special. Overall, very good!
Fantastic food, drink and service
Very good food & service
Our regular go- to for Saturday date night. Long term friendly servers, happy vibes all the way around.
We always enjoy our visits to Francesca Intimo. Food is delicious w great presentation. Although my favorite veal medalions weren't on the menu that evening, the homemade gnocchi was divine. My husband loved his twin tenderloins served to perfection. Family friendly yet friends & couples hopping. Check out that ceiling! Did I mention the pecan pie was scrumptious?
We had a reservation and got there on time. We had to wait , but it is so small and crowded there was no where to even stand. We were pushed aside constantly while waiting. The hosts said they were running behind and finally after badgering they gave us a round of drinks. They finally sat us in an uncomfortable corner table right on top of a very loud large party. They while serving us salads they knocked a drink onto on my guests laps. Even though the food was great we would never ever go back there. Too small and too loud and they don't honor their reservation times
Hello- unfortunately we did not have a good experience. A waiter while delivering a meal to another table dropped the plate and entire meal all over my husbands back, it was a mess. He was in town for a business meeting and had on a costly suit. The only thing the restaurant said was, have it cleaned and give us the bill, not I’m sorry or are you okay and the meal was fresh and hot out of the oven. Sadly, we hadn’t even eaten yet so it wasn’t very comfortable eating for my husband, thank you, would like to hear from you. We did have suit cleaned the next day, thankfully it was able to be cleaned completely.
Good food and pleasant staff!
