“Awesome food”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

This restaurant always has wonderful food. It is Italian but not your average pizza place spaghetti and lasagna Italian. The food is upscale but atmosphere is friendly and warm. Their sauces are to die for! I actually almost always have seafood and I do not leave a drop of sauce on the plate. Prices are reasonable, especially for the quality of food.

“This is BY FAR our favorite restaurant!”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I beg to differ with a few of the reviews. We live in Belvidere, IL and drive the 45 mins to W. Dundee to eat at this restaurant at least 6 times a year (more if it were closer). It is true Italian food, and definitely NOT Olive Garden. The menu is small, but includes, appetizers (the bruschetta of the week is always good), salads, flatbreads, pastas, and meat/seafood entrees. The most fun thing about the menu is that it changes every two weeks. What a refreshing idea. There have been many local restaurants that we have loved over the years, but got "burnt out" on their menus. If you've ever been to a Franchesca's, you know that when they open a new restaurant, they look for a small, cozy place typically which then thrives of busy, noisy, Italian-style environment (we were just in Italy last year). Mind you, not all are always busy & noisy, but that's part of their charm. Love, love, love them! Trying to get one here in our town! Sorry if others had a bad experience because it's a fav in this household!

“WAY OVERPRICED”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

Way overpriced for what you got. Went there once - NEVER AGAIN.
Took a lawyer friend. Even he thought they were way out of line in pricing.

Reviewed 8 May 2010

This is a family chain that's scattered throughout the Chicago area. I thought the food was quite good considering it was a smaller outpost in a town of only 3000 residents.
