Mia has been one of my favorites for years. I’ve always loved their patio, and it’s been upgraded with an attractive wooden wall since I was there last. They’re doing a great job with the COVID safety protocols while still making the dining experience feel as “normal” and enjoyable as possible.
Sat on back patio w/heaters. Food and service are always consistently good!
I go to this restaurant all the time and this may have been my favorite experience. The tables were super spaced out, our waiter was awesome, and we couldn’t stop talking about how good the pasta was the entire time we were eating. Cannot wait to eat here again!
Great food great service we love the people that work there so we keep coming back
Really missed Francesca’s when the one on Taylor Street closed. Went to this one, the original, on Clark Street just to have the food again while we could eat outside. The inside bustle and loudness is gone with the table separation required. And the patio was overly dark because of a lighting problem. But the food was just as tasty as ever. No one does carpaccio like Francesca’s. And our service was top notch, friendly, and respectful of the health restrictions. We still miss Taylor Street, the wonderful people there, and jazz Thursdays. But it’s nice to still have a Francesca’s open.
Very disappointed. I’ve had better food, better service, and better value here. Mia might be losing it.
We had a lovely meal, and the service was great. The lighting was a little too bright. Th noise level was totally fine. We really had a good time and will be back. Soon.
Thank you for the review, Brett! We have had the lighting adjusted in the room that you dined in, so the brightness will not be a problem the next time you visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
From the start, our dining experience was excellent. Our interaction with the hostess was great- seating 7 of us (one couple and a family of 5 including 3 kids) with the COVID restrictions in place was tricky, but they accommodated us perfectly and without a hitch. Ellyn was our waitress and she was absolutely charming, attentive, and did everything she could to go above and beyond. The recommended burrata appetizer was fantastic and my wife couldn't stop raving about the steak carpaccio but the way the staff responded - providing a free tiramisu dessert, a round of limoncello for the adults, and even removed an item from the bill was incredible! We look forward to our next dining experience at Mia Francesca!
Thank you for the great review Cecilia! I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit with us! We look forward to serving you again soon!
I’ve never had a bad meal here. The food is always good and reasonably priced, the atmosphere is comfortable and causal, the service is friendly and efficient.
Francisco was the best! Had an amazing time
Fantastic food, a great deal on an exceptional bottle of wine (Kistler) and exceptional service. Hard to pull that off in our current COVID environment. Well done, and thank you!
Lovely food, and happy hour is exceptional. Patio tables a little too close together. Not so much a social distancing concern, as too many conversations all next to each other. Wait staff was very attentive at the start, but by the end of the meal it was difficult to get the check. However, a very pleasant place with good staff and delicious appies.
Great service, great ambiance and delicious food.
The pasta was amazing and I have never tasted mine stone soup that was as good as the special soup that night. Enjoyed eating in the coach house with a fire of the back yard and fresh air coming in.
We love Mia for the great food, ambience and service. ❤️
Thanks for the great review Cindy! See you soon!
We arrived late on a sunday evening (last seating) and received excellent service while seated in their outdoor courtyard. The ambiance was terrific and the food was great. The calamari was a good starter, followed by a delicious lobster pasta special and Rigatoni alle Verdure with added shrimp. Finishing off with a glass of homemade limoncello capped off a delicious evening. Will definitely be returning
So glad you enjoyed our patio oasis! Thanks for the great review and we look forward to seeing you again!
Wonderful dinner and quaint outdoor seating!
Thanks for the great review Julie!
Celebrated my parents anniversary here. They let us sit by each other at separate tables (per the 6 per party city rule.). Great food and they surprised us with a champagne toast and cake to celebrate!
Happy Hour, Mon-Thu, 3pm-5pm is the best! Select items from the menu at great value, and same delicious flavors. Amazing drinks for $6!
Thank you for the great review Jojo! We'll see you next time!
I enjoyed a lovely brunch with a friend. I was put at ease immediately with their COVID precautions (hand sanitizer upon entering, taking my temperature, all staff wearing masks and tables socially distant). The service was impeccable and their food delicious (as always). I was incredibly impressed with how they have adapted to our new dining landscape and thrived.
Thank you for the great review Hilary! I'm so glad to hear that you feel safe dining with us :)
Great place. Good for and drinks. Definitely worth the price. Will be back.
Food & service at Mia Francesca is always terrific and extremely reliable. Our go-to place in Chicago.
The food never disappoints. The beef carpaccio is outstanding. They are doing a great job with social distancing.
Lovely meal, service and ambiance. Appreciated the generous birthday dessert.
The service and Italian cuisine was truly outstanding!
Food was incredible, Service was Amazing. Everything all around was top notch. We will be back!
We love the food, atmosphere and service. One of our favorite places in downtown Chicago. . . For over 25 years. And in a Covid environment, the quality has NOT suffered like many other restaurants. PS: We felt safe (with enforced mask and social distancing) and everything was consistently being sanitized.
It was a terrific dinner experience. Delicious food, friendly service - highly recommended!
We have been coming here for many years. Always a great meal with exceptional service!
Waiter, Altobelli, was very good and attentive. Food very good. Will come back
The service & food was excellent. Looking forward to going back.
Thank you for the review, Eric!
Excellent service, felt safe as they are tollowing social distancing and sanitizing procedures
Excellent, as always
Thank you for the review, Lorie!
I know we are in the midst of a Pandemic, and I genuinely must state how grateful I am to be able to dine anywhere, so thank you to all the folks that are working in these challenging times.
That being said, if you are going to be open, do not serve food like that. We had the Risotto with Mushrooms and I can state that by far it was one of the worst things I have ever eaten in a restaurant. It was so bad we stopped our meal and decided to smoke and drink wine for the rest of the evening.
The Tiramisu was very good, the wine was average, the court yard is nice, the service was solid.
I will never dine here again.
Tables were far apart, cleaned properly, waiters and busboys masked, food very good. Could not have asked for more.
Thank you for the review! We are so glad to hear that you feel safe dining with us! :)
Great food and great service.
Thank you for the great review!
I went because of their gluten free menu. I didn’t know they had outdoor seating. Bonus!
Thank you for the review, Barry! We love our patio oasis too!
I love coming here. Always great food and service!
Thank you for the review! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Thank you for the great review! :)
