Francesca's North became part of The Francesca's Restaurant Group in May of 1995. The restaurant features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Located in Northbrook, it encourages the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, simple cooking, friendly service and fair prices.

About The Francesca’s Restaurant Group: Founded in 1992 by Restaurateur Scott Harris, Francesca’s Restaurant Group has grown from a small, welcoming Italian restaurant on Chicago’s North Clark Street to a restaurant group of three concepts across 33 locations and four states. Based in Chicago, Francesca’s Restaurant Group currently owns and operates 23 Francesca’s Restaurants, five Davanti Enoteca, and five Glazed and Infused locations.

Service slow. Food was OK but portions crazy small for the price. Linguine with seafood $27 had was so small with very few shellfish in it, if felt like an appetizer. Went home and ordered a pizza.

We have been here before, at least four times and this time I was not happy with my food. The gnocchi were very salty! I ate some but they were bad. The pasta someone else got was not very good either. The waiter was great, prompt and very pleasant. The place has a very nice ambiance.
