We have been to Francescas many times and it never disappoints. We had a table for 12 after a communion and the service and food was top notch. A great place to visit as a couple or with a large group.

We love to go to this restaurant. The food is outstanding, and they are always willing to prepare something you request even if it is not on the menu. Make a reservation to avoid having to wait on busy evenings.

I lived in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood when the first Francesca's opened there in the 80s, and that restaurant helped launch a culinary renaissance in Chi-town. It wasn't long before it was the "in" spot with hours-long waits to see and be seen. The food was...More
