Italian
Mia Francesca features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio. It was one of the first restaurants in Chicago to encourage the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, simple, rustic cooking, friendly service, and fair prices.

Waiting for a table at the beautiful antique bar is part of the charm of Mia Francesca. The plush upstairs dining room and lounge can be reserved for private events, as can the more intimate coach house tucked away behind the restaurant. In the summer, al fresco dining is also available on a charming cobblestone terrace.

    Everything was perfect!!! Table was ready on time and the food was exceptional. I had the 100 layer lasagna and my wife had a veal dish. Hers came slightly rare for her liking. When the manager came and checked on us after food delivery she mentioned it and HE OFFERED to replace it and wouldn't take no for an anwer.

    Food and service was excellent. Price was a tad on the high side, but then I am a very frugal person. The big problem was the ambient noise level in the restaurant. As the restaurant became more crowded, it became nearly impossible to have a conversation with my guest across the table from me. The thump thump thump boom boom music that was playing did not improve the situation.

    Out door patio was amazing. Great apps to start, followed by a perfectly portioned dish, and a tasty dessert.

    Attentive service, delicious food! Our waiter made some excellent recommendations. Glad to have gotten a table in the back corner where we could have a conversation without being drowned out by others in the lively, packed room. Thank you for the reservation.
