Great delicious authentic Italian food in a very historic building.
Great place and great food!!!
Nice rustic setting, great service and the food was excellently prepared.
Fun atmosphere. Noisy but high ceilings and wooden floors to be expected. We all enjoyed it!
Always consistently good. Waiter was a bit “over-attentive” but it was all good.
Easter dinner. Server and food outstanding!
The food and ambiance was great. The service was so-so, the bus staff and staff that delivered the food was good, the server, didn’t seem to come around.
Love the daily specials! Quality food and service.
Great service, great food.
La Sorella is our go to for an amazing meal! We love the lentil appetizer, nochi salad, Quattro stagioni pizza, and of course all of the pastas! They have an extensive wine list and great beer selection! I had a graduation party upstairs in their private dining room a few months ago and the whole staff went above and beyond to make my day special. Lizabeth is by far the best server at La Sorella and all the staff is very friendly and knows us by name! We look forward to our dining experience every time we go to La Sorella di Francesca!
The veal was delicious but not as tender as previously served
Food was average. Ordered the pork chop special and they we very dry. Lobsters bisque was not great either. Our friend at dinner was also not impressed.
Saturday 6:30pm reservation, restaurant was busy, friendly staff, seated promptly. Menu continually changes w/daily specials. Great food & service. Our waitress "Jamie" was fantastic, most attentive. Enjoyable dining experience.
Food was rushed out 5-10 minutes after we ordered. The Fettuccine Bolognese was tasteless with no flavor or seasoning. We were rushed the entire meal.
Excellent meal, value & ambiance! Wonderful having a Francesca restaurant in Naperville!
Very congested and noisy. Tables are too close. Cannot stand without bumping into people. Food was just ok.
Food wasn't really worth the value, in my opinion. Very loud, not a good date place like I originally thought.
It was great! Would recommend going!
The service was not good. We were rushed through dinner even though the restaurant was only 20-30% full, we were served bruschetta without any bread, crackers, etc., I didn't get any silverware (my husband had to take some from another table), when I asked for a second glass of wine, I was charged for it, but never served the second glass (had to ask they take it off our bill), and they gave us ice cream for our anniversary, which was a nice gesture, but the ice cream was half melted and when it was served our waiter said "Happy Birthday". When I told him it was our five year Anniversary, he said sorry, that guy told me the wrong thing (and pointed somewhere off in the distance) and scuttled away. I mean, just really really bad. We've been here twice and I'm super disappointed that this was such a special occasion for us and we were treated like an easily forgotten inconvenience. Sorry to say we won't ever be back.
Fabulous Italian restaurant. Probably the best restaurant in Naperville. My wife and I have been twice now and have been very impressed.
Unfortunately the food was not as good as it's been in the past. Was really sad since I talked the place up to my friend, then ended up with a disappointing meal.
Saturday 6:30pm reservation, seated immediately. Food & service OK.
Glasses were dirty when we sat down at the table. Tablecloth had pasta sauce on it, GROSS!!! When they brought plates for us to share our salad, those dishes were also dirty!! The pasta dishes we ordered had no flavor!! It was a waste of money!! Something is clearly going on at this restaurant, it used to be great, we would frequent it often. Last 2 Times, BAD! Very sad cause the staff is great. Food, not good! We won’t be back. A waste of $200!
The restaurant was SO crowded, that a bus boy dropped a chair on a guest. We couldn’t walk to/from our table without putting our back-ends in someone’s face. Even w/ reservations, we waited over 15 min. & the noise level does not allow for conversation!
Super crowded , cramped and loud echo barn where the food and drinks you order won't even fit on the table where they seat you. You will be juggling plates, elbowed in the back of the head and bumped by staff and other guests throughout your meal.
Clearly, the decision was made to totally forget about guest comfort in favor of jam packing the place with tiny tables that are just a few inches apart. We had to leave after appetizers because even though we were sitting across from each other at our tiny table, we could not carry on a conversation without shouting. Ambiance and furnishings are horrible and uncomfortable.
Enjoyable but not memorable food. Tables are too cramped and it’s a very noisy and drafty restaurant.
Great meals for each of the four of us. Fish and pastas mostly that night. Never disappoints.
Overall very good as usual. Great food good service .
Lunch at 2pm on weekday. Good time to go. Very few people there.
Our experience was very nice. The food and service were excellent and will return soon.
Food and service was good but with having a reservation I thought we should had better seating and not next to kitchen.
The staff were very accommodating to our delay in arriving (due to major traffic delays). Food was great but it was so noisy, I couldn't wait to get out. It seemed so ludicrous to spend all that money to delight one of the senses (taste) while assaulting another (hearing).
This was at best a neighborhood diner at upscale prices. From the restaurant's description, we expected upscale dining. This is far from it. The atmosphere is closer to a diner. The food is somewhere in between, but definitely not up to the restaurant's hype or worth the prices charged. My sea bass was overcooked. My wife's shrimp special was rubbery. The service was friendly, but only sporadically available.
We won't return.
Great!excellent service. Great food recommendations. Great setting for a business meal.
Been a favorite for 12 years and always a great experience. Have tried a variety of menu items but -- do the specials.
It’s always a pleasure to eat at La Sorella. The food is excellent and the place is perfect for a romantic dinner.
Love it! 3rd visit and we will be back! Great service. Delicious food. Cozy ambiance for a date.
Tables to close together no room to move or room for tables to be served. Food good though
I LOVE all the Francesca restaurants! You always serve your food piping hot which I love!
Valentines Day; will never eat here again on this holiday. Food and service are always good here. The food was average, the service was expedited, location was over crowded and we were in the place for about 45 mins only and we were finished eating and asked about dessert. I had to slow down the server and ask for some time while we digest our food. Disappointing but just for this night.
