Food was absolutely amazing however it beat us up at night. The sauce from the meatball, chicken primavera, ravioli and spaghetti (marinara type sauce) gave us so much indigestion! However it did taste amazing. The place is small making you feel oyster tight. (Opt for a booth) The service was good but to bring our drinks was a lag 15-20 minutes for a bottle of barbera and to clean a spill took 15 minutes. We would definitely return but would stay away from the sauce! Take your antacids before visiting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
We enjoyed our Mother's Day here. Only complaint was that I didn't get a refill on water.
We had a wonderful experience for lunch on Sunday. The staff was outstanding as well as the food! It was our first time at Franconello's and we love it! We will definitely be returning. We are so impressed.
Waitress needed to be trained
Very crowded enjoying themselves. We requested reseating to comply with social distancing. Overall, very good/
I took a friend there and their were astounded that every morsel-bite of food from beginning to end; appetizer, main meal to dessert was EXCELLENT. The food is Excellent and I would and my friend will certainly come back. The service was also Excellent. Our server was very friendly and attended to every need, the bus boys were also very pleasant and at our beckon call. This restaurant deserves a 10 from a scale of 1-5, beyond all you can expect. Awesome, excellent Italian food.
Great food, wonderful owners and management. Great service.
Staff was great! Food was great! All of staff and bartenders were great!
always the best! best service , food, atmosphere and always best bartender!!!
My brother and I went out to this place, probably had the best filet mignon i’ve ever tasted.
A great surprise on the Southside (I am from the Western Suburbs). The place made me feel like I was eating in Oak Brook. Very nice. Good wine prices too.
Loved it especially the spicy pasta, will come back!
Wonderful food and service.
We are going back now that some Covid restrictions are lifted. It’s still very good!
Great food and service made for a fantastic evening! I love this place they never disappoint!
Excellent as always, go you will not be disappointed!
Rebecca was our server, it was our first time there. Her recommendations were perfect. We will definitely return and it is close to home. Keep up the good work!
This was our first visit to Franconello and we’ll definitely be back. The food was outstanding and our server, Rebecca, was fantastic.
Fabulous! Chicken Parm and a Martini what else do you need!
I absolutely love it here! Thumbs up to the chef as well as the servers.
My wife and I had a belated Valentines dinner. I ordered a New York strip and she ordered the chicken Vesuvio. We both enjoyed our meal very much we also tried the fried calamari and their drinks were good. The service was great. However I do feel like the prices for the food items were a bit high we could’ve easily had the same experience in downtown and spend around the same amount of money.
By far the best authentic Italian restaurant ever! The food is amazing, place is so clean and the service is excellent!
Wonderful romantic atmosphere. Just me and the hubby. Wonderful wait staff. Would go again. 😀
Great food, great service and great atmosphere.
Wxcellent! Best service, ambiance and friendly staff!! Marcia the bartender is the best! Makes you feel so welcome and best martinis!! Can"t wait to go again soon!
Went in with another couple on a Saturday afternoon at 1pm. No problem with social distancing. Service was excellent, waiter made a great choice for our wine. Appetizers and entrees were delicious. We have been going here for years and will continue to do so!
Definitely a gem within our neighborhood. Screams AUTHENTIC!! The food was so delicious! Everything from appetizers to dessert! The service by far excited our expectations. Came with a friend and plan to bring the hubby for a date and let other friends know of this place. The restaurant was extremely clean and saw they take every precaution necessary to sanitize and make us feel comfortable. We have to support our neighborhood businesses and plan to be a returning cutsomer.
Everything about this place was wonderful! The staff was nice and friendly. Everyone had on masks. It was nice and clean in ALL areas. The food was absolutely amazing!!! The atmosphere was perfect for me. We will be returning. This spot is a gem.
Service was great and the food was delicious great wine selection too
Will be back!
Quick and friendly service and enough space to move around the dining area during these COVID times. Tried a special but should’ve stuck to my regular, the grilled pork chop.
Excellent food, huge portions, and good service as always.
It seemed our table was quite close to the table seated next to us and for COVID that was disappointing. Otherwise, excellent as usual with lots of delicious leftovers.
Great restaurant, delicious food, tasty adult beverages.
It was great to be out after 8 months. Good food, customer service, large portions, and good environment.
We dined on the roof on a very pleasant Sunday afternoon. Everything was very good. Service was great!
best food i have had in a long time.i would recommend this restaurant to anyone with out reservation.simply excellent!
Always a delight!
Spinach ravioli with basil cream sauce and goat cheese was out of this world!!! Service and ambiance great, loved the roof patio. Would suggest offering wines by the glass other than house wines. Really wanted a glass of Conundrum but couldn’t drink a whole bottle.
Great date night!! Would highly recommend food was fabulous!
