My wife and I were in town visiting family and we like to find new places to dine where our family has not been before. We checked out Francesca's on 95th, and the family was not disappointed! Francesca's actually has 18 locations in the Chicago area, but the one on 95th had all of the feeling of a family run... More

I attended a business dinner this week and was impressed with the level of service by the staff--from the greeter, to the wait staff to the busboy. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The food was also very good, too. Filet with mushrooms and a brandy sauce----unexpectedly excellent at an Italian restaurant. My companions were very happy with their spinach... More

My husband and i had been recommended this restaurant by a few people so we decided to go a few weeks ago. When we walked in there, we were a little taken back, for some reason we expected a fancier restaurant, but the ambiance looked great. Laid back and quiet. Mainly couples. Once we arrived we waited a few minutes... More

Clean modern lines in restaurant ambiance and awesome totally delectable a la carte selections. Mouth watering meals that are just enough serving for you to smile and say basta! Staff is attentive and professional. Good place for intimate dates, larger groups, and family meals. Usually a more mature clientele though all are welcome.

I've eaten here several times and always enjoy the food, drinks, and the lava cake dessert. We went for their Monday night pasta special and it was very good and the price was great. We have always had good service but this waiter was terrible. Hard to flag down, never checked on us, and we waited forever for our dessert.... More

Very good service. Their house bruschetta is excellent with salad very good. The risotto appetizer is the best I've ever tasted. Very reasonable for the amount of food that you get. Their tilapia and salmon get five-stars.
