The service was excellent, our waiter we Jaime, very attentive but not overbearing. The food was amazing! Delicious tastes and we had a variety of dishes. The pork chops are fabulous, cooked perfect and pleasant to taste. The roasted half chicken was amazing, honestly have never had better anywhere. The mussels as an appetizer were plentiful and cooked just right. Caesar salad, I know I know, but it really good! I highly recommend this location.

Every time we eat at Francesca’s, we are never disappointed. The staff, the food and the setting is always perfect. I can’t say enough about this neighborhood gem. The new downstairs with its flat screen tv and newly renovated space is just perfect for watching a game or hosting a dinner or party. This restaurant really has it all.

Food was just ok. Best thing we ate was the calamari and the pistachio gelato dessert. Asparagus soup was bland. Our meals were just ok

Very nice place for a nice meal out. Some dishes a bit pricey. Most of all for an Italian Restaurant they had a very limited menu including pastas. Did offer Filet Migon, and good appetizers. Served dessert as well. Would have loved to have had Veal Marsala, but there were no veal or pork dishes on the menu. Some chicken choices offered. Excellent service!

Had the scallop special with corn- truly decadent. Others really enjoyed the "cold sauce" spaghetti and the seafood linguini with pesto. The Wedge salad was also delicious. Would go back in a heartbeat!

I don't know what an "energetic" noise level is. To call it for what it is it's dam loud when the restaurant is full.

It was my 50th birthday and my son and I flew up from Phoenix to see Hamilton and have a nice dinner. Francesca’s never disappoints. Our service by Jorge was top notch and the manger Joe ensured everything was perfect.

Probably spoiled by the Francescas on Bryn Mawr which i go to almost once a week, the latter is very warm and welcoming. This chestnut location is quite a bit larger and impersonal and even though the menu is the same, the food wasn’t cooked as carefully.

Lunch reservation at 1:30, restaurant still very busy, including two large parties. And only one waiter. So blame for poor service goes to the manager. But in addition, the waiter was easily distracted, kept talking with one exiting party and wasn't paying attention to any other table, including the large parties and us. The manager knew the situation but did nothing to help serve. Very disappointing experience.

Definitely better Italian restaurants in Chicago. Service was rushed and impersonal. For what we paid, it was worth it, but not needing to visit again.

We always's enjoy Francesca's on Taylor. We make a point of staying in hotels within walking distance. The neighborhood is enjoyable. The building is handsome. The food and service are always outstanding. We often eat dinner early, around 5:30. At that time the restaurant is quiet and romantic. When eating during prime time, Francesca's on Taylor is the typical bustling Italian restaurant. Later in the evening, it quiets down again. We have always enjoyed our dinners and our nights out at Francesca's. We always leave satisfied and happy.

Great cocktails and my pasta entree was good but not great. Salmon farfalle needed more seasoning or flavor. The dining room had somewhat of a musty smell when you walked in too.

We got off to a slightly slow start (for the waiter to take our drink orders but the service that followed more than made up for it. We were not rushed and so were able to enjoy the lovely environment. It's great to have a place where you can relax and dress somewhat casually.

We enjoyed our meals. My filet was cooked to perfection, as was my sister's pasta. The sides were very good, too. Deserts (Tiramasu and Chocolate Mint Gelato) - Yummy!

We will definitely be back yet again.

We enjoyed our dinner. Mussels appetizer was good but mussels were too small. My pasta dish was very tasty with shellfish cooked nicely. Pasta a bit soft but I’m fine with that. My wife’s salmon was cooked just the way she requested. Won’t be the best Italian in the city but solid and good for the money.
