If you like Italian then you will love Francesca's. They have been around forever and they have supreme Italian food. I have been there numerous times and have always been pleased. Food is great, wine is awesome and the ambiance is very mellow and perfect for a nice meal. Highly recommend.

This is one of the few cases where I ate at a chain's restaurants in the burbs over the city. From the now 4 I've been to I have to say that they all have an extremely affordable menu for the quality of food. Honestly for how awesome the meals are here they probably could be charging another $10-$30 a plate (please, don't read this! Your prices are what help me come back as often as I do!) The menus can change at a moment's notice but honestly feel more seasonal than anything. That being said they usually have some form of bruschetta which is always great as well as carpaccio which is fantastic. (Great 2 choices that will go with almost any meal you pick!) The pizza's are good (though the one with the egg is a little off for me the one time I had it) and their meal and pasta selections are always great. I've had a variety of chicken, veal, steak, seafood, and pastas here and have yet to have a bad meal (even the pizza with an egg on it mentioned above wasn't bad, just a little strange. Seriously though while the pizzas are good there is much better on the menu!) It's a perfect place to go on either a date (awesome outdoor patio at this location!) or with a group of friends and the atmosphere really is fit for either (also a great place to hold larger parties if setup in advance!) Nice bonus, they have gluten free options which was useful for one of my friends who almost never gets to eat Italian.

Very good service and very authentic Italian food. Ambiance is great - very romantic. Perfect place for a date. Be sure to get a booth for maximum effect.

I love this place for any occasion! They have great food and the atmosphere is always fun. On valentines day they have special entrees shaped in hearts and other cuteness. Always a favorite. Love their ravioli!

I just went there today with one of my closest friend to celebrate our friendship and seeing each other in months! Perfect experience! The waiter Sam was so nice, helpful, and just provided excellent service. He was able to get our dessert to go. He was very handy with the black pepper and cheese. Not only that but I asked for Pellegrino water and since they didn't have a cold small one he got me a large bottle for the same price as the small! He was great and I love going here time after time :) Food was delicious of course!
