Our Server was wonderful! Great food,but like other Francesca’s cramped dining space. Man sitting behind me had to stand up from his chair so that I could pull my chair out and stand.
Francesca’s never disappoints. The food, wine, and service are always excellent. The salmon is the best in town.
Okay so no this isn’t a computer because this is a five star rating but I went with my parents and the food was really good. I enjoyed it so much and they did follow every request we had about anything. My mom did have one minor complaint but who doesn’t?
The Francesca's Vicinato never disappoints, always a great menu and the staff is phenomenal.
The food is always good! Very consistent and very good service. Highly recommend.
Dinner was delicious!
Our server Holly was fantastic! She was one of the best servers we have had at Francesca’s! Hats off to Holly!
Service & Food was remarkable!!! This was my daughter birthday & the Manager & Staff did a awesome job!!! Food was stellar!!!!
Dan was fabulous.
I made a reservation for six and the manager, Mike? Was so nice and put us in the side room which was roomier. The good and the service was beyond reproach as usual
As always, Francesca’s delivers great food, great service, and great value.
Delicious gnocchi, cabernet and cappuccino for a casual date night. Although this was our first visit to this location, we have eaten at several of the "Mia Francesca family" restaurants and each one has been consistently superb. The service was excellent !
We went to Francesca’s for Father’s Day. The food was excellent and we received a wonderful surprise. Dads ate free! We will definitely be back.
Awesome food. Nice atmosphere. Busy and fun. People enjoying people. Great service. Gluten free menu too.
The date was Father's Day and also our grandchildren's birthday (twins). The dads eat free was an excellent treat for them and a sweet dessert for the birthday. Always accommodating. Our favorite restaurant!
Our waiter allowed us to deviate from the menu by allowing a different preparation of a fish dish or veal. How accommodating.
Linguine and clams were terrible. No flavor and very dry.
Great food and service as usual!
The whitefish (Halibut), was excellent! The stuffed peppers with prosciutto and cheese was very good also.
Love this place. Always consist food and great service!
2nd time in one week. We frequent your location once or twice per month. Never have been disappointed. Dan, our regular, waiter treats us well. He deserves a raise as he makes us feel like family. Also,....love his new shoes. Jack Craven
Amazing food and great service. Would recommend this restruant for anyone who wants great Italaian food.
My wife is an outstanding cook and very particular in our restaurant choices and even when there are so many fine restaurants on the south side, we always go back to Francesca’s The selections are wonderful, the staff is very helpful and really is good value and quality for your money.
We will miss Juan.
Our service was exceptional our server was remarkable he had a great attitude very helpful and catered to all our needs promptly & courteously. Will definitely come back in the near future.
I've noticed the last six months or so that the music playing has been awful. When I was there this past Sunday it was Frank Sinatra- wonderful, relaxing and romantic. The other days I feel as if I'm in a bar(loud and obnoxious). It didn't use to be like that (customer for the last 12 years), so disappointing on most nights, but lovely on Sunday. Hoping the old music comes back. On an everyday basis in my car by the way, I listen to all types of music, but for dinner I want to relax!!! Lastly, servers such as Lauren, Tacho and Dan to name a few... AMAZING every visit!
Great service by Lauren. It’s our local go-to
I’ve been to 3 locations for Francesca’s and I think this is my favorite! The ambiance and decor strike just the right balance. What impressed me the most is the willingness to accommodate for off-menu selections. For example, I’m pregnant and currently unable to tolerate red sauce. The waitress allowed me to customize my own dish, which was delicious! She presented all options to me and let me choose. A little bit into our meal the manager came around to check in, and I made sure to tell him how appreciative I was. I also feel it’s a characteristic of a high-quality establishment that the manager comes around to personally check on each table. We will definitely be dining there again!
Went to Francesca's for a girls night out to celebrate one of our b'days. The food was fantastic. I had the white fish with shrimp that was out of this world. The other three girls had salmond, and two of them had the veal piccata. Everybody raved about their food. They brought the birthday girl a "dirty sundae" for dessert which was really good!!!! Definitely recommend.
Its not a quiet intimate seating if your looking for that but it is really nice and the service, our server and the food was really great. Will definitely visit again.
The food and service were wonderful. Our server really went the extra mile to make my friend feel special on her birthday. Much appreciated.
Great staff. Food is always good!
Mothers Day dinner was great. Crowded but was seated immediately and food came very quickly. Enjoyable dinner. .
We went on Mothers Day and it was, of course mobbed. Even so, with reservation we got seated promptly and the service was surprisingly good, and we all enjoyed the quality of our dinners.
We will probably go back to see how it is on a quieter night.
We had reservations because it was Mother’s Day. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server kept the food and drinks coming at a nice pace. Everyone enjoyed their food. My husband started with the wedge salad, and it was enough for 2 people. Overall it was a very good meal.
Great time during a Mother’s day brunch!
This is always my go to place for lunch or dinner. The food is always delicious! The service is always exceptional! .We are weekly customers for our takeout dinner on the weekend!
Food and service were good as always. Would recommend the special Tuesday offering.
Never disappointed when we go there. Food great, service great!
Always good, but tonight the food and service was excellent. Consistently good dining experience.
Lovely. Good food, attentive service.
As always excellent service, outstanding food and the best French and Lemondrop Martinis EVER!
