Met a group there for dinner recently and it is a very inviting spot in downtown Frankfort. Menu is quite nice and my wife and I both had very nice entree's. She had the prosciutto wrapped chicken breast and I had rigatoni. Both were done very well and the taste was excellent. I don't think there was a diner at... More

Too much heavy sauce. I had a fish dish last time that was ok. Very expensive for the mediocre meal. The service is excellent and the wine is good.

Went with a friend at 6 on a Tuesday it wasn't busy so we got seated immediately. Once we left it was getting busier. I got the chicken parmesan & it was amazing! Cooked perfectly & breading was perfect and it was a lot of food! I split it with my friend and still had leftovers! Waiter was very nice... More

My husband and I went here on a Friday night to sample the food and decide whether I wanted to have a bridal shower here. I was looking for a classy restaurant with excellent food that would make a good impression on my future in laws, friends and family. My first impression was excited that after months of searching I... More

The food and the service are top notch here at the Frankfort location. The tables are too close together making conversation uncomfortable, so if you're looking for a cozy date night this will not provide the atmosphere you would like.

Francesca's is our local go to restaurant for a nice night out. If going here, I have several recommendations, if it's in the winter around the holidays, you'll see all the white lights of town all around as you it. If you are really lucky it will start to snow because it all then looks magical! Now if you like... More

A group of 5 met for a business dinner to discuss a new product available. The first issue is parking if you are not familiar with the old part of Frankfort. The street parking is hard to come by, but head for a lot right across the street and you most likely will find a spot. If you find one,... More

My sister and I recently had reservations for lunch at this popular Frankfort, IL restaurant. We were seated at our table in the middle of one of the dining rooms - our first clue should have been the 2 sets of long 'pushed-together' tables that we observed on either side of our table. The noon time rush began (we were... More

Wonderful Italian food in a charming setting. The restaurant is slightly loud so it is challenging to have a conversation. However, the food is wonderful! They have a selection of pizzas and sandwiches. The entrees are a nice portion and all the food was very fresh tasting. They had a lemon fish special the day we stopped in and it... More
