Delicious and reasonable lunch. Perfect for business while enjoying the meal and great service. Cut through the sandwich place if you park in the lot. This would be my top pick fir price and quality for any type of lunch visit in downtown Naperville.

I recently met three friends for a girls weekend in Naperville. We started things off with lunch at La Sorella. The martinis were delicious and the house specialty pizza was one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. My friends enjoyed calamari and scallop and chicken salads, and all were raving about them. Very generous portions to boot! The European... More

I highly recommend Francesca's restaurant located in the heart of downtown Naperville. From beginning to end the chefs consistently create dishes that please the palette. The wait staff is attentive and friendly and the atmosphere quaint and cozy. You will leave satisfied wanting to come back for more!

They have amazing pasta and fish dishes and good service. The tables are a little close together...but it is always busy so who can blame them. They also have nice private rooms upstairs for parties.

You'll find many Italian specialties here: appetizers, pasta, pizza and desserts. We tried different pastas and I personally found some of them a bit too much adapted to the american taste: very strong-tasting and intense sauces and creams.

Have been a patron of this place for over 10 years! Upscale Italian Cuisine with different menu daily with specials. Great for couples or families! The waitstaff knows their stuff, will describe what wines compliment your dinner choice. Consistently delicious pasta and seafood!

I love about ALL of the La Sorella restaurants. The food is always good, as is the service. I typically order a fish dish. When they have their Champagne salad dressing, be sure to order that -- it is outstanding!

Was there on a Saturday night. As always the food is very good although I have had better. The service was very rushed. They obviously need to turn the tables.

Food at any of the Francesa's restaurants are alway really good and consistent. Had the risotto app and green bean salad and they were both great, got the bolognese and the seafood pasta and again very good and plenty to take home!
