Two of us went to dinner and ordered the ribeye. Both steaks were good quality and cooked perfectly.
First time in since the new space was added. I like it. Keep up the good fight Benny! I appreciated the hustle and entrepreneurial spirit you’ve always had. Thanks for being a valued asset to the Rockford community.
This place is a gem! Outstanding service, delicious food and excellent ambiance added up to a wonderful evening. Just so glad they are surviving this challenging economy- keep them in mind!!
My wife and I absolutely love this place!! Great food and service.
Was more than happy with the staff, great food and ambient. I just wished the piano room was open since we drove hr away and initially I told friends about it and they were exited about having a piano dinner for the first time. That’s my only complaint other than that like I mentioned the food, service and newly opened room was great.
We LOVE Franchesco’s! My husband Ed and I are there at least once a week. The new remodel that they did is wonderful. Beautiful bar and dining areas. This is a family owned restaurant that truly loves their customers. Many of the customers have been customers of Franchesco’s for many years. They are known and called by name which is amazing to me. The food is wonderful. Their chef, Tino, loves what he does and puts out some amazing dishes. Their thin pizza is our absolute favorite in this area. We highly recommend this restaurant! Five stars all the way around!
The atmosphere was excellent and food, as always, was wonderful. The service was very good as well. We'll be back!
Friendly staff and a great environment for a date or special occasion.
The food is always amazing. I don’t know why we don’t eat here more often!
Food and service was great. Inside was closed due to Covid. But they have a nice patio area and the weather was still nice.
Genuine fine dining. Great experience. Excellent food. Attentive service. Good ambiance.
Love the food and service! So happy they are open during our current Covid crisis. We need to support all of the small business in our own communities. My family loves their Friday night fish fry.
Food is always good, but drink prices are high. $10 for a glass of wine limits me to only one .
Very accommodating in ordering “off menu”. Attentive staff and great tasting fare.
During this pandemic and all of the warnings and education that has been made available, I was disappointed to see the overcrowding, thus giving an easily transmissible killer virus having a field day of eligible victims. Just as stupid as Trump's reception on the WH lawn.
Always a great meal and time at Francesco’s!
Have been to Franchesco's before and we look forward to eating there. However, the issue with our last visit had to do with the number of people in the building.
There was a very crowded wedding in the hall adjacent to the bar/dining area. As the night progressed I felt increasingly uncomfortable with the number of people, lack of space, and lack of distancing. People from the wedding hall continuously came into the bar area, and the rest rooms were always crowded.
In summary, I like Franchesco's. However, I am not willing to go back until there is a solution and vaccine to the Covid situation.
We ate at Benny's. Enjoyed my pasta dish and my husband enjoyed his steak dinner.
For a memorable evening it's hard to beat Franchescos. They have delicious food...from mouthwatering steaks to great pizza and flatbreads. Love the new Benny's Bar and Lounge and they have a wonderful patio with heat lamps. We always have a great time.
We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect!
Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Always worth it.
Our dinner was fabulous!!! Great meal, great service... Benny you never dissapoint!!
My main complaint is that the tables were simply too close together and we finished and left for safety's sake
We were celebrating my birthday and definitely hadn't planned to leave so quickly
My husband had a superb fish dish - he kept saying this is great - if you like fish go to this restaurant!
I had lasagna and it was excellent
We never received our bread but the fish dish was so good it made up for it
The food was very good and we shared a marvelous desert
We really like this restaurant but go early when there is enough social distancing
After the virus go for the bananas foster
menu was limited compared to the menu on their website.was disappointed as far as the selections.
The ambiance was ideal for a nice birthday dinner. I took my partner and he enjoyed himself. I would recommend this establishment to anyone going for elegant evening. Employees were respectful and professional. Wide variety of drinks that were phenomenal. overall I'm glad I made the choice.
Our experience here was incredible. The staff were so polite and classy. Definitely a welcomed change.
Great food......beautiful atmosphere on the patio and great music.
We sat outside on the patio which was busy but beautiful & the guitar player was a great bonus. Food was spectacular as was the service.

Our meal was delicious. Very happy with everything.
Seated outside during pandemic. The food and drinks are very good. They remodeled while closed and it is beautiful. I wondered if the tables were spaced out enough but overall their protections are aligned with expectations. The owner came by and thanked us for coming and was genuinely engaged.
The outdoor patio is super cozy. The peach Bellini's were so good. Our server was knowledgeable and attenitive. Two thumbs up.
Enjoyed the meal and service. I do believe the menu is limited due to COVID 19 at this time. We ate outside on the patio.
The menu was limited due to Covid so that was a bummer, but definitely out of the owners control. We were seated close to the doors which wasn't great because a lot of people walked past us. We also noticed two older gentlemen not wearing masks. I believe one was the owner and he walked past our table about 12 times and was within 2 feet of me. The food was good though.
This place is absolutely amazing. Undeniably one of the best places in town.
We were celebrating Father’s Day! My Dad and husband were very happy with our dining experience at Franchesco’s!
Adjusted well to the pandemic rules for eating outside.
The outside dinning experience was handled very well. Service was as expected from a quality restaurant like this, outstanding in every way. The Tortilla ala vodka was simply great.
