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!
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
