Das Francesca’s on Chestnut gehört zur Restaurantgruppe Francesca. Das Restaurant in den Seneca Boutique Apartments bringt seine berühmte italienische Landhausküche in das Geschäft mit 180 Sitzplätzen. Küchenchef Martin Ontiveros führt die Küche, die Francesca’s klassische Angebote aus pikanten Gerichte aus Rom und den umliegenden Regionen Toskana, Umbrien und Latium auf den Tisch bringt. Die Weinkarte sowie Spezialgetränke in dieser einzigartigen Lokalität sind ebenso beeindruckend. Freuen Sie sich auf eine versteckte Weinbar im Keller, DiSotto Enoteca. Über die Francesca's Restaurant Group: Die Francesca’s Restaurant Group wurde 1992 vom Gastronom Scotts Harris gegründet und entwickelte sich von einem kleinen italienischen Restaurant in Chicagos North Clark Street zu einer Restaurantgruppe mit drei Konzepten in 33 Standorten und vier Bundesstaaten.

Pasta arrived cool to lukewarm, but definitely not hot, which it should have been. Francesca's is a good standby but have been a bit disappointed by food the past couple of times.

Four of us ate in the wine cellar for the first time. It is a lovely environment. The service was very good. All four of us were very pleased with our meals. I had a salmon preparation that was unlike anything I’ve had before, including a sort of relish with avocado in it. It sounded strange, but I ordered it on the waitress’s recommendation. That was about a week ago and I still think it was the best salmon I’ve ever had in a restaurant

Steaks over cooked, no steak sauce available, special pasta of the day was a congealed lump of stuck together flat noodles with crumbles of sausage,a few cherry tomatoes and a few bits of asparagus dumped on top. The server barely spoke English and only once came by to check. The quality of this particular Francesca’s has declined rapidly. We will not go there again.

A neighborhood jem! . I eat here all the time. My friends and family like it as much as I do which is why we frequently eat here. The service and food are always amazing. The friendly and professional managers are always over seeing the restaurant making sure things are perfect...and they are. I highly recommend this restaurant...you’ll be happy to have taken my advice. :0)

We had a wonderful before-theatre meal at Francesca's. The restaurant is always a pleasure, with a wonderful atmosphere and great food. We shared an appetizer of prosciutto, artichoke, and ricotta, which was excellent. Our entrees were also very good--Amish Chicken, and Tilapia in Brodetto with scallops and mussels. While the tilapia was a tad overcooked, the entree was excellent in general and a wonderful combination of seafood. We shared a dessert of profiteroles, which are always a pleasure. The service was excellent, very attentive yet discreet. The location of this restaurant is such a draw, as it is close to the theaters and shopping of the Mag Mile. Really a delightful experience, which we will look forward to repeating. Thank you, Francesca's!

We sat upstairs where there were two huge parties. The people at both parties were really intoxicated and the waiters were more concerned about what they wanted then what we wanted. We had to sit there and wait and wait and wait for the waiter to even come and see if we liked our food or if we needed anything else. We also had to wait and wait to be asked if we wanted dessert and finally a waiter from downstairs saw us sitting there and he came upstairs and offered us some dessert. The noise level was off the charts upstairs. I also think they should have some just basic Italian dishes like a regular spaghetti with a marinara sauce or spaghetti with a meat sauce. And possibly lasagna or even eggplant.

Very disappointing. We were seated upstairs and it was hot up there. We kept asking them to please turn some air on. Then the ceiling light by our table went out and we couldn't see. They fixed that and said the light fixture is sensitive. Most importantly, the food. All of our meals came cool to lukewarm and had to be sent back to the kitchen. The salmon came back ok because it was ordered rare, but the chicken was tough and the pasta was ruined. I used to love this restaurant, haven't been for a while, and won't be going back.

It pains me to write this, because Francesca's on Chestnut has long been my neighborhood favorite, but it's off my list. I brought an out-of-town friend, a former Chicagoan who loved the original Mia Francesca. The food was not great - Roasted Cauliflower (bland) and Buratta special (hard, dried figs instead of fig jam, too-thick prosciutto) to start, Lobster Ravioli (overly-salted) special and Quattro Stagioni Pizze (doughy crust) for mains. I ordered a cocktail upon arrival and my companion, a glass of wine. I told the server I might like a glass of wine with my entree, but he never returned to the table after apps were dropped so I never got one. The service is rushed - please don't clear my plate while my companion is still eating - and they clearly want to turn tables as quickly as possible. All in all, this was disappointing, and there are a lot of better choices in the area.

I had dinner with a great friend of mine for the first time in 40 years. Francesca's was the perfect setting for us. Food was excellent as well as the service. I asked our server if the chef would make a special request. The chef did not disappoint. It was wonderful! Thank you to all for making our evening perfect!

Very gracious with us as our group continued to grow as fellow conference attendees got out of sessions and came to join us....additional places were set with a smile and yet another separate check added with graciousness . As the native Chicagoan I was not surprised but the guests from New York , Texas, and New Jersey were speechless. The hostess and our waiter deserved a badge of honor. Pasta fresh and perfectly seasoned

Assistant General Manager, Joe D'Alesio, and his staff were excellent. We met our niece and nephew in from Kansas City for the weekend and had brunch at Francesca's. We've always enjoyed Francesca's and our usual haunt is in suburbs at The Promenade in Bolingbrook. Francesca's has always been consistently good which is often a rare thing to find. Joe was most hospitable and surprised us with a Tirimisu for dessert. Thanks, Joe, for a lovely luncheon! We hope to see you again.

Another nice meal at Francesca's. We were disappointed on the table that we were seated at this evening. We arrived early evening with a reservation and were seated next to a long reserved table for 20 or more. The restaurant was very open when we arrived. Thirty minutes after we were seated, the large party came and sat at the table next to us. Although they were nice, it was so loud that we could hardly have a conversation among the three of us. I wonder why we were not placed at a table far from them when we arrived - as the restaurant was totally open at that time. Have dined here numerous times in the past year.

We happened to go to Francesca's twice on a Saturday. For a late lunch, the restaurant was like a quiet, but not uncomfortably so, oasis. For lunch, it seemed like a great place to catch-up in a casual atmosphere. Our servers were fantastic. For dinner, the restaurant was buzzing, but not too loud. Our groups had pizza, salads, salmon, carpaccio, tuna tartare....it was all delicious. I'm sure I will likely return when I am in Chicago.
