    Six of us enjoyed the $25 lunch special at Francesca’s Tavola. It’s an excellent value and the food was delicious! Service was attentive.

    Great service, great food. Delicious carrot cake, but was too small (individual bundt cake size), for the price of over $12.00. Also, the mini cannolis were bland.

    The wine isn't kept at cellar temp. Meatball was great. Sauce not the best.

    We keep coming back here hoping for a better experience but this last visit was our last. The service was average at best. Never offered us the specials that the other wait staff offered to the tables around us. We had one guest who got her meal nearly 10 minutes after everyone else. We had to get the bus boy to help because our server was nowhere to be found. Every guest, and there were 8 of us, had cold vegetables and barely warm pasta or chicken. This restaurant is very overpriced compared to other local Italian establishments that serve larger portions and include soup and or salad with your meal. Wine and cocktails are downtown Chicago prices. Overall an underwhelming dinner at an average place. The only thing this place has going for it is it's location and a designated parking lot.

    Our server Fabian was wonderful. He was attentive and also found out from the chef that we could order a special salad that we have had in previous visits. The manager was very accommodating to our party. The food was wonderful, especially the risotto. It was a wonderful afternoon for friends.
