Along with four family and friends, I had a very enjoyable experience at Mia Francesca. We celebrated the 25th anniversary of the opening of the restaurant, at the original restaurant on Clark St in Chicago. Very friendly and helpful wait staff added to the very positive experience. The food was excellent. Because of the anniversary celebration, the prices on the entrees were more than reasonable (equivalent to the prices of 25 years ago), the speed of the service was very good, and the atmosphere was lively. This is my second time at Mia's on Clark, and there will be more. My friends said that was one of the best meals they ever had enjoyed.
We went for an early dinner with our 12 yr old son. They sat us in the coach house so it was nice and quiet. The food was reliable as always at Mia's. Our server was attentive but not overbearing.
Loud space, tight space, but perfect Italian vibe! Good it great. Servers are so nice!
Don’t go if you are looking for a quiet, private vibe.
Good food and good service. Was a bit disappointed with the portion size on the veal, but besides that had a pleasant experience.
We have been dining at Mia Francesca’s since 1993 - the early days! Went for a valentine’s Dinner and while it was easy to get and change our reservation, the atmosphere was just so so. We were seated upstairs (never even knew they had this option) and it just wasn’t the same ambiance as downstairs. The lighting and decor was just average. It felt like an afterthought. Service was excellent. My husband loved his meal, mine wasn’t my favorite I’ve had there but was solid. I was a bit disappointed unfortunately- but mostly in the atmosphere.
Delicious food, excellent service.
Amazing cheese ravioli and beef carpaccio
One of our all times favorites. We had our wedding reception upstairs. Love the food and the service! Always great!
The food was tasty, and the prices were good. The place is VERY noisy, and the service was extremely slow. But it was packed, and, as mentioned, I liked the shrimp pasta.
It was wonderful! Very cozy atomsphere. Food was amazing. Waiters were so very helpful helping with our choices. We will certainly go back again!
Great food, always dependable and just a great Chicago institution - they deserve to be around as long as they have, and we are lucky to have them.
Mia Francesca is definitely a family friendly restaurant, with ample seating space and many options on the menu. We came with a party of 6 and had enough space to share food and enjoy one another. In terms of food, I’ve had better Italian (though I’m a bit of a snob since my family is from there). It was good, just not the best I’ve had. I had the Rigatoni Siciliana, which was full of flavor. I also sampled the salmon, which was good as well. Their wine is is quite extensive and the waitress was helpful in choosing. All in all, it’s a good Italian restaurant, by far not the best I’ve eaten at, and great for a large party.
Mia Francesca is normally very crowded and loud. With the snow storm outside, the place was relatively empty which means you could converse with a date more easily. The food was very good but the service, despite being empty, wasn't up to par. We definitely had to flag down our server several times, pour our own wine and wished he would come back with more grated cheese.
I wanted to love this place, because the main restaurant is lively and has a great vibe and my spouse raved about the food from a previous visit. The reason I lowered the rating was because even though we had a reservation that we were on time for and even though there were plenty of open tables in the main restaurant, we were seated in the "coachhouse." We had to go past the bathrooms, out the door, and into a separate small building to enter this so-called coachhouse. I felt that we were being led to the outhouse which started the evening off on a sour note. Our server was courteous and I would consider him excellent. My pasta was just ok, but the rest of my family loved their food. I don't think I would come back as I think they seat people with children, even well-behaved ones, in the coachhouse and no one likes to feel that they are second-tier customers. We are all paying the same price regardless of where we are seated.
We've been going to Mia Francesca on Clark for over 20 years...always a terrific experience! Food is consistently outstanding. It's our favorite place!
