In addition to several pastas, they will have some lighter entrees and excellent salads. And you can count on fabulous dessert choices. The tables are very close together and... More

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. This time was no exception. We came at 1PM and not good weather. We were treated like royalty. They served from lunch and dinner menu and the service was personable and expertly done. Veal medallions were incredible.

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.

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.
