The service was great as always!
Our server was amazing as always!! He is friendly and always talks to my elderly mom who is a regular at this Francesca’s. The food was delicious as always! The staff and management of this restaurant are excellent!! Always a pleasure to dine here!!
Absolutely wonderful as usual. From the wait staff to the ambiance to the delicious food. Never a disappointment.
Great food and wine.
Birthday dinner with my family. Goff is very good . I did not give the ambience four stars. Not a very relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant is a little small and tight... felt a little on top of other patrons. Crowd was a bit stuffy . We did not have to wait long for our food but our server was a aloof and not entirely friendly.
Overall good fairly priced Italian food , served in a timely manner. Wish overall ambiance was less stuffy and more comfortable.
Wonderful staff and food was delicious
The experience was great! The service, the food was amazingly good. They truly cater to our palate by preparing some dishes according to our favorite way. It was a birthday party for us and it was better than we anticipated. We'll definitely plan on going back soon.
Went for a late lunch date. Bread was a bit on the stale side. Pasta was very al dente possibly undercooked. Risotto was good. Will try again for the dinner menu but not for a while.
Tacho is one of the best servers Francesca’s has the good fortune to employ. He is thoughtful, insightful, fun & genuine. Tracey is a great bartender. She is unobtrusive, knows when to approach and talk & when to step back and observe. That’s a true talent. She reads people and situations extremely well. Bravo!
There were 6 adults in our group. We all had the "evening special " of Chilean Sea Bass which was recommended by our waitress. All six of us loved it! It had great unique flavor and was a generous piece of fish . The drinks were full to the top and tasty as well. The desserts were unique and attractive. We truly enjoyed our dining experience. We will return for another tasty meal.
We love this place. We come here when we want to go on a date night locally. We get take out from here on a weekly basis. If you can’t tell we Love this place. Food is always delicious! The entire staff that we have direct contact with are fantastic. See you soon!
As always great food and service!
Our food was delicious- from the warm bread, to the delicious salad to the main course.
Everything was very good from our server Crystal and the girl that brought us bread to the fabulous food. We love Franscecas!
I come here often, I know many of the staff and am never disappointed! The music selections have been my complaint for quite some time. I do not wish to go to an Italian restaurant to sit down and relax as I enjoy my meal and hear pop music. Finally, the other night we were back to the oldies but goodies of Frank Sinatra and the likes! Now don’t get me wrong I love pop music, just not at dinner when I’m trying to relax! !
Very slow service
Food was mediocre. Birthday party was forgotten by staff after several reminders. Our desserts came with no candle. They spilled sauce from a chicken dish down my white pants and Never said sorry. Not going here again. Big disappointment.
Wonderful service from Carlos. Never felt rushed, especially when we told him we wanted to take our time with ordering and eating. He made sure my friend’s meal order was exactly how she requested. Other staff very friendly.
Consistently a favorite place for me. You are greeted like family, the service is extraordinary and the food phenomenal. This is not to be missed. Always an exceptional dining experience at Francesca’s Vicinato. And I co-hosted a luncheon for 30 at this location...the family style served luncheon was amazing and everyone present loved it. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Good was excellent. Service was very good. Noise level was a bit high.
Crystal our waitress was so much fun. She made our dinner very enjoyable!!!!
Always a good meal!
The halibut special with the corn salad was wonderful. Both lasagnas were fantastic.
The restaurant is very clean and inviting. The staff was excellent. However, are seating was terrible. We were seated near a service station and servers were constantly bumping into our table. The special $10 lasagne was awful. The portion was very small and tasteless.
Awesome Service!!Rich is an amazing manager. Juan was our table attendant and he is so attentive. Lauren was our server and she did a great job! It is our favorite restaurant!
Wonderful service! Our waiter Dan was excellent — very knowledgeable about the wine, specials and food overall. All his suggestions were spot on! Even brought us samples of wine before choosing. Food was delicious, too!!
Always a great experience...with great food, service, & company you can't go wrong!
Enjoyed a wonderful birthday celebration at Francesca’s with my husband. Richard, the host, was friendly and attentive. Tacio, our waiter, was just as attentive and friendly which made our dinner enjoyable. Service was excellent. The halibut was outstanding! Thanks for a wonderful dining experience. Already made another reservation for Lunch with my sister and friend.
Food was outstanding, as usual. Server was attentive without hovering. Manager checked in on us as well. Overall very enjoyable.
Dan was amazing love him! Made the whole experience!!
As always, the staff at Francesca’s delivered another excellent experience. Started with a shared house salad , which they split for us. It was fresh and perfectly dressed, letting the ingredients’ flavors come through. Then had the rigatoni with sausage. It was no problem for them to hold the mushrooms, which I don’t care for. The pasta was nicely al dente, nice red sauce and plenty of sausage. It was a large portion that could easily have been shared, but made a yummy doggie bag. The staff was attentive and helpful. My out-of-town visitors loved the Francesca’s experience!
We’ve probably rated at this location 100 times...literally.
This night was so far off the. Irma’s, it was ridiculous. 15 minutes to get a drink, 20 minutes to get a salad, and over 45 minutes to get our food.
We’ll go back, but if this repeats itself, maybe not again.
Service was perfect - food delicious - we celebrated 4 birthdays- it was a lovely afternoon
Loved the food but it is a bit pricey for a restaurant in a strip mall
We were celebrating my daughters birthday. The food was excellent! Our server, Crystal, was so helpful. Our dinner was great from beginning to end. We will be going back for sure!
Always love their salmon dishes. They never disappoint
It started terribly we had a reservation for 5 when we arrived I said reservation for me for 5 the hostess took us to a 4 person table with 5 water glasses. We had to call the 5th and let them know not to come in as they were parking since there wasn't room for them and the hostess refused to put two tables together. Then two of our dishes had under cooked pasta how do u screw up pasta my 9 year old can make pasta. Lastly our waitress was God awful she clearly didn't want to be there. Overall steer clear.
Another great time at Francesca’s!!
Came here for roll-back price day. Good deal! My wife had the salmon, which she said was excellent, and I had scallops which were great. Our server, Dan, was outstanding.
Everything was fabulous! Much better than the Bolingbrook location.
