Our meal was delicious. Very happy with everything.
Seated outside during pandemic. The food and drinks are very good. They remodeled while closed and it is beautiful. I wondered if the tables were spaced out enough but overall their protections are aligned with expectations. The owner came by and thanked us for coming and was genuinely engaged.
The outdoor patio is super cozy. The peach Bellini's were so good. Our server was knowledgeable and attenitive. Two thumbs up.
Enjoyed the meal and service. I do believe the menu is limited due to COVID 19 at this time. We ate outside on the patio.
The menu was limited due to Covid so that was a bummer, but definitely out of the owners control. We were seated close to the doors which wasn't great because a lot of people walked past us. We also noticed two older gentlemen not wearing masks. I believe one was the owner and he walked past our table about 12 times and was within 2 feet of me. The food was good though.
This place is absolutely amazing. Undeniably one of the best places in town.
We were celebrating Father’s Day! My Dad and husband were very happy with our dining experience at Franchesco’s!
Adjusted well to the pandemic rules for eating outside.
The outside dinning experience was handled very well. Service was as expected from a quality restaurant like this, outstanding in every way. The Tortilla ala vodka was simply great.
WE enjoyed the being with our friends and the hospitality of Bennie , Kim and family.
Service was outstanding , the barbeque ribs and salmon were prepared to our taste and exceeded our expectation ,we will order again
Great food and drinks.
Unfortunately due to COVID we had to dine outdoors on this occasion and it’s just not quite the same or even close but the food is still great
As I said on Francesco's fb page we couldn't of a add ked for anything better. It was such a wonderful evening out on the patio. Hats off to everyone working.
Always a great time. Great food, atmosphere, and service.
Francesco's isn't just an family owned and operated Italian Eatery. They make you feel like family. My wife and I have been enjoying our monthly date night there for over 10 years. We recently celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary there. Franchesco's is truly a treasure of the Rockford area.
Nathan was a great server. Service was fantastic from the moment we walked in. Ambiance was amazing, food was great, overall would highly recommend!
great food beautiful interior my favorite place in Rockford,outstanding service
The waitress was wonderful! As was, and always is, Stephanie in the bar!! Love her!!
I have been to Franchesco’s before and love the food. This visit our server was not the best! In addition he was training a new employee. He left us alone longer than other servers. This was not due to training. He left dishes on our table that should have been removed. Just not the best service as compared to other visits in the past
Still my family’s favorite, we have celebrated birthdays there for years. Miss your luncheons, but every one needs time off. Each of us enjoyed our dinner and cocktails. Keep up the good work and your high standards!
Always a wonderful dining experience.
We have eaten at this restaurant before and had a better experience.
This time round was the day after valentines and the restaurant had a special menu set for the event. The food was just ok. No one at our party was very impressed, not even the young children. The service was very slow and the seating was horrible. Not sure if it’s because the reservation was made under opentable that we had to wait so long to be seated, but it was not organized well. The whole experience from start to finish was off.
My family has been going to Franchescos for years because it always is fantastic and this Valentine’s Day was no different. My boyfriend and I had an outstanding experience start to finish and the food was excellent as always!
Place was beautiful for Valentine’s Day definitely recommend it. The steaks are great
Francesco's went above and beyond for Valentine's Day. The live music provided the perfect atmosphere for the evening. The food was cooked to perfection, and served by a friendly staff member.
Franchesco's is a wonderful restaurant with great service and the food is always amazing. It our standard go to for birthdays, anniversary celebration, and valentines day.
Very nice staff and very accommodating to small children. We will definitely go back!!
Great food. Loved the music and musicians.
The rose for my wife was a nice touch.
Very dissatisfying experience on valentine's day. My wife and I have come on this day the last 6 years plus had our rehearsal dinner here. Experience started after we where seated waiting almost ten minutes for water or be offered bread. It was only 6PM and the restaurant was maybe half full at the time . Our waitress was constantly M.I.A. and came across very condescending. She was very obviously hiding in the kitchen instead of attending to her tables. My wife and I order the same seafood risotto every year for the last 4 years because it is only served on this day. We where shocked when we where served our food and saw the portion served this year was apparently half of what it has been in the future. Then after asking for water again and getting it 5 minutes later from our waitress, when she gives us our check , she drops it and it bounces on the table and nearly hits my wife in the mouth. Clearly an accident, but her contrite response of " oops" and condescending apology sealed a very negative experience overall. An evening we look forward to every year now has us determined to take our business elsewhere next valentine's night. What a shame.
Excellent service; food was delicious; pricier but worth it-good quality food and large portions; complimentary dessert if celebrating special occasion
The only small thing i would comment on is... the restaurant was packed so they opened up a separate room for dinners. Our waitress took forever to get back with things. She apologized several times and explained that they were super busy. Our food came out in a reasonable amount of time and It was hot. Just took forever to get our drinks, knife, dessert, check. Other then that, our experience was awesome! It was the first time for my fiancé and I and I would highly recommend it.
I would recommend this restaurant. The food was wonderful and the restaurant is gorgeous. Their handcrafted drinks are excellent too.
We have been here twice before and had no issues, so we caught them on an off night or they changed policies. Service staff was busy, food was very slow to come out. All u can eat fish fry. 20 minutes for more fish. Also waitress didn’t ask if we wanted a potato, fish arrived with fries. Which we thought was nice, until we realized with the bill (which came with the 2nd helping of fish) that we paid extra for the fries that we never ordered. So it was an ordeal 1 hour 45 mins for the dinner. Just didn’t expect it since when we arrived dining room was not to capacity.
As always, the service and good was AMAZING! Everyone has smiling faces. The only person that we noticed that could use a lil boost in happiness was the hostess:/ but maybe she was having a bad night. You will never regret coming to this restaurant! Its like stepping inside your home away from home. If you have never had the filet, do yourself a favor and order it. It melts in your mouth❤️ Thank you franchescos for another unforgettable date night.
It was phenomenal! Our waiter was named Lucas and he provided us with exceptional service. I would come back time and time again - and I plan to!
strongly recommend and would return next time i am in Rockford
The food was very good. We always enjoy our meals there. The only thing I would say is that the prices are a bit high. It's more of a special occasion type restaurant, not a regular date night type of place.
Wonderful evening for dinner. Piano player. Craft cocktails, and delicious dinner special. Always an excellent choice for dinner.
