I’d been to Francesca’s recently for a bridal shower luncheon and thought the food and service was outstanding. So I wanted to bring my husband back for dinner.
We were not disappointed! Food was very good; we shared the Calamari and asparagus appetizers, the eggplant and zucchini vegetarian pasta, and the Nutella olive oil cake. Everything was fresh, great mix of flavors and textures. The service was attentive and we appreciated the restaurant manager stopping by our table to make sure we were enjoying our meal.
Will be back ASAP.

When making a reservation, make sure you make it clear that you do not want to be seated near the kitchen or bathrooms! We asked for a booth and were directed to a booth next to the kitchen! We asked for a different booth. The host explained that he didn't want to seat us at this booth because of the draft. However, we did not experience a draft.

The servers made us feel rushed. Neither guy was helpful. The food was just ok. I prefer the one in Oak Park but traveled since my best friend and I meet once a month for lunch. We try to meet at restaurants that are half way between us. She lives in the south suburbs and I live in the city of Chicago near Oak Park.

First time going to Francescas's since I am new to the neighborhood and food was delicious. We were celebrating our 3 yr anniversary and we were given a complimentary desert with a candle on to celebrate. Great service !!

Our waitress, the host, and everyone else were very accommodating, professional, friendly, and checked in with us regularly. They made our experience enjoyable. I'd been there before, but my friends hadn't. They enjoyed the restaurant as well. We'll be returning. Food was delish! Prices are reasonable. Drinks were perfect!

We had a delicious meal and birthday celebration made very special by the managers and staff at Francesca’s. Everyone was so accommodating. Even the chef made something easy for my 101 year old aunt to eat! Dining at Francesca’s is always a treat in every way.

I am a bi fan of the Francesca's in Palos, but I thought I would give this one a try. It was very good! Try the Bruscetta with roasted baby artichokes! It was unbelievable! Had a great time, and the service was good.

I tried to be a bit daring by ordering the sea bass, which I have never eaten but was intrigued by the chef's pairing of tastes. It was delicious and nutritious!

Also, thank you to Francesca's for showing appreciation for teachers as we begin the school year!

Fantastic gluten free options! Our server, Oscar, was fabulous. He helped us get in, and served, and out of the restaurant quickly as we had somewhere else to be. A wonderful meal!

The food was excellent as always the wait staff not so much. With fork in mouth my plates was cleared from in front of me. With coffee cup to my lips he was reaching over again to clear the table. We were not lingering and there was no line waiting to be seated, tables were open and available. I felt rushed and pushed to leave, not an enjoyable scenario.

Mom’s Birthday was the occasion we had a reservation for 2 so there was no wait. The staff was inviting and helpful on Wednesday they have half of bottles of wine which we enjoyed a bottle of Indian Wells Merlot. The remainder of the wine also can be wrapped along with the remainder of the food to go. For dinner mom had Spaghetti Pasta and Meatballs and I had the Pollo Romana both entrees were good. On the way out the host was very friendly and informed us they have Jazz on Thursday nights starting at 6pm.

The decor was like there other restaurants. There was no veal on the menu and my wife asked for it and they accommodated her and she and I were delighted. We will be back. Thanks for bringing The best of Italy to the south west side.

Had a great time on Fathers Day. Meals were delicious, service was really great and our waiter and staff were the best. Never felt rushed and table was big enough for all 7 of us. Thanks for a great meal.
