crispy fried rhode island calamari served with marinara
We live in the neighborhood but have avoided going back because the noise level was high there, (that was several years ago). We went during restaurant week for lunch and it was great. Food was really terrific. Noise level was low. Service was great. We will definitely be back!
Great food & service
Fantastic staff!!! Delicious food and perfect dinner for my birthday.
Food is always unique and delicious. Service is unbeatable.
We always enjoy Spaghetti and Meatball day! Absolutely delicious. We also enjoyed having a bottle of wine. Monday is half price on a bottle of wine. We also had calamari for an appetizer and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our waiter, Mario was excellent! Thank you for the enjoyable and relaxing evening.
Service was extremely slow.
Food was marginal.
Martini's were excellent!
Francesca’s is always a solid choice for us. Service and meal were good but we were disappointed by the lemon drop martinis. We sent them back and no attempt was made to get them right for us. Oh well...
We were celebrating my dad’s birthday and everything was wonderful! Food was delicious as always and our waiter was fantastic! A wonderful choice to celebrate a great guy!
They make the best carpaccio I’ve ever had. Wife had the veal and I had pasta with seafood. Seafood so good I thought I was back in the Florida keys! Service was fast and attentive.
Went there for NW Suburbs Restaurant Week. The Italian Wedge Salad was a little week - salad wedges, dressing, bacon & tomatoes only on 1/2 of the salad - but everything else was delicious. The waitstaff was outstanding.
The food was excellent. Thought it was pretty pricey!
Best to not come first Friday of the month if planning to be in the bar. Most tables in the bar appear to be reserved for monthly teachers’ group and not available for drinks or food for general public, including regular patrons, until approx. 8:00 PM.
Lunch is always a consistent experience..great food and service
Our food was excellent! And Mario and his assistant offered impeccable service! We ordered an entree not on the menu...... no problem!!! Thank you, Mario😊
A typical night at Francescas. Fantastic food and service. If you have not been, you really should try them out.
Our waiter was great and food was yummy but it took forever to get even our salads. Had 6:30 reservation and didn’t get salad till about 8 pm.
Always a very good meal. Always consistent and friendly!
Food and service were exceptional!!
Perfect timing and an excellent meal with a superb chocolate dessert all we could ask for
We came here to celebrate my birthday that happened to fall on Ash Wednesday. Very nice dinner. Our server was excellent. Well prepared and generous main course. Excellent salad. Why would that be so special. I don't know but it just was.
Every aspect was exceptional. Our servers and manager went above and beyond to make our family experience outstanding. Highly recommend Francesca’s.
Been here several times. Food was good but the service was extremely slow. We had several children at the table and all were getting antsy with the wait time. We were ultimately late to our next commitment and the server did nothing to acknowledge or attempt to rectify the situation. I'd go back to Francescas but I'd likely look first to one of the many other good Italian restaurants near downtown Arlington Heights.
Food and service were excellent. Only issue we had was the portion size of the desserts was too small for the price charged.
It was very nice! The atmosphere was amazing and the food was exquisite. Our waiter was kind and attentive to our needs. Me and my husband will definitely be back again!
Thanks to Aaron, Jennifer, Chef and Francesca's Travola for always making every visit so special!
I come every year to Francesca's for their special Valentine's Day dessert, unfortunately today they were sold out. I admit I was a little disappointed...until they brought out something unique they put together. The picture doesn't do it justice and boy was it to die for.
Lunch was amazing too. I had the tastiest chicken panini on a focaccia roll served with melted provolone and sliced portobella mushrooms. Yum!
Three long-time friends had a great 3 hour lunch. We were not rushed. Our server recommended a terrific wine. The bread and olive oil and cheese were delicious as were our lunches. Wonderful service.
Service was horrible. They have gone down in qulity as well.
We loved to spent our time in this restaurant on February 14th. The food is delicious, the staff does an excellent job. Definitely, we will do it again.
Pretty good place! Great food. Great visit!Teodora was our waitress and she was so kind.Great service.
It was a very busy Valentine’s evening service, but the staff handled things beautifully. We never felt rushed. The hostess station was really busy, but they did a wonderful job. Our compliments to the servers for a lovely night.
Good food, nice Valentines Day ambience. Felt crowded, extra tables added so very packed. Good service and value
Food was outstanding! Great valentines dinner!
Great food and service, which is why every table was booked all night tonight. My wife had Linguine all'Arlecchino and I had the Vitello. Both were excellent. I have been here several times and never had a bad experience.
Amazing food. Great staff. Very good service even when the restaurant was very busy. Not rushed at all even thou the line was out the door
We always enjoy dining at Francesca’s Tavola. Good food, service, ambience, drinks. Like to support local businesses in Arlington Heights.
