As always excellent service, outstanding food and the best French and Lemondrop Martinis EVER!
Great night out for an Anniversary dinner. Our server Juan was very knowledgeable and helpful in navigating the menu. Beet salad was 4 stars, Cod entrée was phenomenal! Wine selections were plentiful and reasonably priced. Dessert offerings were super as well with a basic crème brulee with fresh berries and a vanilla gelato hazelnut sundae closing out our evening. Can't wait to go back to this south suburban gem...
Our go to when we want to dinner with friends and want to be able to talk without shouting. Good food, love our waiter Dan...seems like we always get him...he is awesome.
Francesca's Vicinato is consistently great! I got the sea bass this time and I think it may be the best piece of fish I've ever had. Our server wasn't the best but he did a good job! This restaurant is such a great place to have in the neighborhood.
We visit this restaurant a few times a month. As usual, everything was fantastic. I only decided to write this note because I noticed that Fox News was on the television in the bar area—and that was kind of disappointing. But otherwise, this is one of my favorite places to visit in the neighborhood. Very consistent—and tasty!
Great Salmon paired with good service. The waiter made us feel welcomed and comfortable with drink and menu choices.
Servers and staff is always exceptional at this location. Over the top. Unfortunately, prices have gone up, pour levels have gone down, and the new GM is less than friendly. He doesn’t fit in at all and treats people poorly - unfriendly and cold.
The food is delicious!!! Always fresh and the chef accommodates most requests. The wine/drinks are a bit pricey for the suburbs. The service is always terrific and friendly!! . I've been going here for the last few years and the food has never disappointed me!!!
I do wish they had better way to keep the overall air temp just a little more consistent (gets chilly inside in the winter)
A great place for dinner, food and service are always excellent.
We had a wonderful dinner with both regular menu items and one from the list of specials. Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable of the wine list. Never felt rushed. Perfect evening!
The food was great! I had the ravioli because it was “ravioli day” and it was one of the specials. It was delicious, though I could have eaten a little more. Francesca’s is consistently good so it’s always a good bet. The tables are close together though and the place was packed, making it a little difficult to hear my friends.
Great place to meet friends. Delicious food and great staff.
Went to Vicinato to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary - as always, the food was wonderful and our server, Rachel, was terrific! One of our very favorite places!
The place was hopping. We were there on St. Patrick’s Day, and Loyola was on the TV. Service was great, and food was good. We need to go back more often.
Good food , very nice waitress and staff
Great food and service once again
Delicious, great service!
Great waiter, Juan.
Staff always inviting and amazing ! Lauren has been my waitress for years, she is like family. Michael the manager, newer but doing a great job
One of our favorite restaurants! As usual dinner choices were excellent! It was hard to pick. All of our entrees were excellent! Servers were attentive, beverage choices were excellent! It was a very pleasant evening!
The food was really good and presented nicely. The warm bread with oil was excellent. I would say a little expensive as compared to similar Italian restraunts, but the service was great and we enjoyed ourselves, nice.
Excellent menu, Phenomenal Service and a pleasure to dine at.
Servers are awesome, professional and prompt. Food is great. For dessert, get the multiberry sorbet!
Went the anniversary special roll back
Enjoyed the Tilapia with spinach. Nice wine list also.
We always thoroughly enjoy our experience at this Francesca's location. Juan was our waiter and he is always very pleasant and accommodating. He even asks the chef for my special requests on a regular basis.
consistently good service and food, would recommend
Juan as always was the best. He made us feel special- his only table- while running around to make his other tables feel jut as special.
One of our favorite restaurants. We've never had a bad experience. Food / service / atmosphere
Nice table location and good service
A wonderful meal. The veal was outstanding and the branzino was very good. Profiteroles were delicious and the bombolini were very tasty. Service spot on. A delightful evening
Took server/bus staff a while to attend to us, had to ask hostess to send someone over - also had to ask 3x for water to be brought to table. Not much ambiance to speak of, and crowded - wait staff probably bumped my chair well over a dozen times with No apology. That being said, they prepared a salmon dish with wilted spinach that wasn't on current menu which was quite good, and my friends rigatoni with sausage was also really good. If the wait staff and logistics of the space could improve, we'd go more frequently, however the Frankfort location is the better option.
I was severely disappointed. I came for Valentine’s Day with a reservation at 7:30. I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated which I was fine with because they were packed and I understand, but after we were seated at 7:45 a waiter didn’t come to our table until 8:30. I think that was rediculous. I had my 80 year old grandmother with me who doesn’t like to eat really late and night which is why my reservation was scheduled at 7:30 and we didn’t get served our main dish until after 9pm....not because the food took long, but because our server came To the table to ask what we wanted to drink at 8:30. On top of that it was an absolute icebox in there...we ate with our winter jackets on and it wasn’t the Valentine’s Day experience we were hoping for. It was extremely loud with people in the dining area getting beligerantly drunk and obnoxious and there was like weird 80s dance music playing. Not what I was expecting since I came last year and had such a nice evening. I don’t know what happened but I made a mistake choosing This restaurant on Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t worth my money
It was a very busy night, but we were promptly seated. The food was remarkable. The tastiest mussels appetizer ever, warm fresh bread with olive oil. The fillet medallions melted in my mouth. My wife's salmon was also outstanding. We will be back.
Good food as always, sketchy service but it was a holiday and they were slammed.
Excellent as always. The profiteroles are superb!
Great place and terrific food and unbelievable service.
Excellent food and a really wonderful experience. We enjoyed the birthday event. The service was attentive and helpful. Our party had fish, bruschetta, ceaser salad, pasta. All were wonderful.
