Our meal was amazing and the service was tremendous! I had the prosciutto and arugula pizza which was amazing. We also had some housemade limoncello and it was the best I've had! Thanks all
Good food, service was good. It's a relatively small space, so noise can be semi loud just because of the size. You can definitely come with a group, or on a date, and still have a conversation without yelling at each other :)
We had a reservation at 8:00, but had to wait until 8:50 to be seated.
As always, fantastic food.
Excellent for 20 years
Slow service but overall good, not great, experience.
Outstanding service again at Mia Francesca! The happy hour menu meatballs and Caesar salad are so good and such a great value. I've had some better wines here during happy hour but hard to go wrong for $5.
This is normally a favorite spot. However, this time everything was incredibly salty 😩
The only thing is that the portions are way too much. But other than that, we had a wonderful time. Service was wonderful and the food delicious! Can't wait to go back but will order less food and share more.
Loud, energetic, great food. We really enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be back.
We always enjoy dinner but everyone (8) people agreeded dinners too salty -pastA and pork chop with mushroom gravy -
Next time, we will request much less salt and hope chef can accommodate.
Authentic Italian. Great wine list. Friendly service. Reasonable prices.
Wonderful experience! Great service, excellent food and wine at great value! My husband courted me here 23 years ago and we took our two teenage kids back for a recent trip, they loved it as much as we did! Highly recommend!
Celebrating Lasagna Day!
All our food was outstanding and nicely plated, our waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and made sure we had everything we wanted, it was certainly a wonderful time and we talked about our lunch many times afterwards !!! Absolutely going again !!!!!!
It was wonderful! We sat outside on a beautiful summers night. The featured white wine was outstanding and perfectly matched for the warm evening. Food was delicious, the raspberry sorbet is not to be missed! Will keep coming back here!!
This was one of my favorite neighborhood spots 26 years ago and it is as great as ever. Delicious pasta and salads and desserts. Great neighborhood feel. Food is fresh and very well prepare. Not fussy.
The food was authentic and awesome. I love the place
Our group had an amazing time - delicious food, friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere!
Always a local go to for Italian. Good food and service. I like the room as well. But caution - can be very loud.
The food was ehh not great!! Also the air conditioning was broken and we were sweating up a storm, made it very uncomfortable to be in the restaurant
The A/C was not working on a 99 deg. day.
It was challenging to get settled and enjoy a nice meal. The waiter did a very nice job to help us get through the evening.
Exceptional food with wonderful service I highly recommend it.
Always a great meal at Mia Francesca’s. You can’t go wrong with anything you order!
A nostalgic visit for us and our senior friends. Service was especially attentive. Food and ambiance were authentic old school Italian. Very fun!
Mia Francesca never disappoints! The carpaccio appetizer, linguine al fagottaro and tiramisu were standouts for us on this visit! #fivestars
Dave is a Great waiter.
We reserve the table outside but apparently it was a party and didn’t matter because it was a great inside
Excellent food. Some of the best Italian in Chicago. Great servers. Wonderful wine selection. Highly recommend the salmon or anything with their amazing red sauce. The chocolate torte is also extremely decadent and delicious.
My only gripe is their bread. It’s complimentary, but not to my liking — a bit dry and flavorless. Freaked me out a bit the first time we ate here — who wants to eat at an Italian restaurant with bad bread? But once you get past the bread, the food is great.
delicious italian inspired food. noisy, crowded, urban - luv it.
It was noisy but the food was great and very cheap since it was a special day where all the prices were those of 1992!
Always a reliable and enjoyable choice for fresh Italian fare at a reasonable price. The wine pour is a generous 8 oz pour too, although you can opt for a 4 oz pour as well. Mia Francesca is the original, but there are several locations throughout Chicago and they are all great.
It was amazing! Food was so delicious ❤️
Mia Francesca's is one our favorite restaurants, although it's been months since we've been able to go there. New menu was great. The four of us had 4 different entrees - all excellent! I had a Quattro Stagioni pizza & Italian Wedge Salad, my son & his friend shared a Insalata di Asparagi, my son's friend had the Rigatoni dei Sardi, my son had another pasta dish and my husband had the pasta special of the night. We asked to be seated on the patio and it was a beautiful night to enjoy our surroundings. The only slight "glitch" was that our server was good but not very attentive. That was the only negative I would offer.
Mia Francesca's is always a solid meal and dining experience. This place has a sometimes loud but cozy feeling upstairs the main dining room downstairs or a patio and back bar if it's nice out. My favorite location.
LOVE Mia Francesca... food is always amazing, as is the service and ambiance!
We were there to celebrate a birthday. The service and food never disappoint.
As always, the salads (burrata and asparagus selections), calamari, and pasta were outstanding. It is nice that the menu is always a little different each time we go--with wonderfully fresh ingredients, nicely prepared and presented dishes. The service is attentive but not intrusive. The dining room can be a touch noisy when there are large groups, but the atmosphere is always welcoming and fun.
Good neighborhood standby. Traditional Italian fare.
