This is really good restaurant. I like the linguine of this restaurant.
Sunday afternoon early dinner...superb food, great waitstaff -- always -- never disappointed.
Food is excellent here! They always have seasonal specials that are good choices.
Good food and great service.
Everything was fantastic food, drinks, service all worth going and checking out!
The restaurant seemed to have overbooked reservations for valentines day. We were crammed into a two top that barely left room to pull the chair out on either side. Both me and my date were sitting with our backs against the parties behind each of us. This did not allow for great conversation since you could hear every table around you. With the restaurant being so busy- there were food runners, bus boys, and servers running around like crazy. This "chaos" took away from the overall ambience of the restaurant. Lastly, we had to wait in the cold/drizzle for valet to get our car. There was a line of people waiting to get their cars to leave.
Valentines Day dinner with my wonderful wife. One of our favorite Italian restaurants wonderful food and service. Mike was our waiter and had been before. He is Great. LOVE THIS PLACE
Always love Franchesca's :) Great gem in Arlington Heights
Excellent Valentine’s Day dinner. Good service and great food! I would definitely go back.
Authentic food with a great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Great bar area. Only negative is the parking. Great for s date night, anniversary, birthday, special occasion. Will definitely be going back.
Always great dining but understandably busy and crowded for Valentine's Day. Food and service were still good. Seemed like their were additional tables set up so noise level was high.
Valentines Day OT was able to get us a table on short notice, so we walked in and were immediately seated. Very knowledgable wait staff were at our side quickly and orders were served in superb sequence. Our food was excellent the atmosphere busy but not too loud a very nice date!
Starting with the good, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. And the food was always at least average, with a few things really good. On the bad, they were entirely unprepared for Valentine's Day. We waited over an hour for our food, making us late for our after dinner plans, and the parking situation was absolutely awful (the valets were so overwhelmed they couldn't keep up, and they just left my keys in my car and the car unlocked in the parking lot). I respect that it was a busy night, and I'm sure everyone was trying their best, but even our server admitted they weren't prepared for Valentine's Day and they didn't even realize it was happening.
Great food, great service. Enjoyed the whole experience!
I could not be more pleased with my first experience at the Arlington Heights location. We were there for our post-wedding luncheon with a few family members. We called ahead to see if there was a corkage fee for Champagne and although there was, they waived it for our special event! We received complementary apps and one dessert, and our server, Mike, was outstanding! We really felt like one of the family there and they were just an awesome team. Thanks for making our luncheon a great experience!
