Unfortunately it was not their usual. The service was way off. We were celebrating Father's day. Fathers ate for free, which was a nice surprise. We found out as we saw a sign in the bathroom. It was 2 dads and they didn't give us the discount. Brought it up to their attention and only discounted one. Had to go back again and ask for both, finally did it. It was a hassle. Then we were celebrating a birthday and no candle at the end with dessert.
The bread service was long, the order taking was long. It seemed like they weren't ready for the amount of people there. The food was delicious as always. Too bad service wasn't.

I am very fond of Italian good, particularly pasta - and when I have asked for a variation of one of the menu dishes the chef usually can accommodate my request.

My wife and I had lunch at Francesca's family restaurant in Oak Lawn Illinois. The Italian bread and olive oil for dipping was extremely good quality. We each had the same entrée which was an arugula salad plus linguini Pomodoro which, by the way, was served piping hot which is our preference. We each drank iced tea. All in all, it was a great lunch. We would definitely dine there again!

Food is always good. Taylor Street location is more friendly and service is better. Waiter and staff seem to ignore us and be sluggish in serving us, intentionally. May have had to do with the fact that we were to only people of color there.

We dined in for a late mother's day dinner, 7pm reservation. Very busy but the staff was great and the food was excellent. Had to wait about 10 min extra for the reservation but that's always understandable on a holiday.

This eatery consistently performs at a high level, from the outstanding homemade Italian bread(with awesome olive oil to put on) to the delicious deserts. Oh yes and the entrees are great!

We went fro Mother's Day. The food was excellent and the service was quite good. We have never had a bad experience there and will continue to dine there. The only down side is the noise level can be quite high at times and if you have any hearing difficulties, it may be hard to hear conversations at your table.

Everything great except that mgr wanted us out of our seats at 1;30. I maybe misunderstood that the mgr said a new party was coming in then. I originally told him we might be late but then we were all seated 5 min after time of res. Although I didn’t think it would be an issue that we’d be done by then, we ended up needing an extra half hour. A res shouldn’t be limited to only 1:30 min unless it is clearly stated at the time of booking. We felt rushed at end but we’re given some money off total bill. 18 bucks on $150 bill.

Great service. Our waiter was extremely helpful. Especially because we were trying to taste a few items from their banquet menu. We already booked a private party for a future date and wanted help with making our menu selections. Our waiter , Hymee, was extremely thoughtful in helping us pick items close to our banquet choices. He spent a good deal of time with us. We had a great experience!

Thank You Hymee!

Food is always consistently great. The pastas are flavorful as are the entrees. My wife had the chicken with sautéed spinach and mushrooms and after she gave me a bite she almost didn’t get it back. My daughter had gnocchi stuffed with fontina cheese and it was amazing as well. The wine selection is great and reasonably priced. We go to Francesca’s pretty frequently and the consistent quality and service keep us coming back.
