My biggest complain is the fact there was very few Italian dishes and we were in the small room not main dining room. I ordered fish and was very surprised that they had no tartar sauce...really seafood and no condiments?
I think they were having staffing issues because the service was very spotty. We had multiple servers, food brought to us that we didn’t order, drinks that were forgotten, lack of refills, and condiments requested that weren’t delivered. The service did improve towards the end of our visit, closer to peak dinner hours. The food was good and the restaurant has a nice ambiance, although the music videos playing on the giant screens was different.
Love going here but the steaks were not cooked to the right temp as requested and the filet had a strange texture - everything else was delicious
My wife was having cabin fever because of the pandemic. I surprised her and made reservations for the 2 of us which was very easy to do from my phone. I was so pleased that i did everything rt because im technology challenged😀. Food was outstanding,looking forward to our next visit
Mask enforcement was rather loose but everything else was quite good.
If you're looking for a excellent meal with the service to go with it in Rockford this should be your choice. Franchesco's never disappoints!
First of all, the ambiance is excellent but we were very disappointed. We were frequenters of this ristorante before covid, the service was excellent. It has suffered a bit. After having our vaccinations we thought we would enjoy a night out.
The waiter was inattentive, chatting with other members of the staff. My wife wanted a second glass of wine but sat there with an empty glass until the meal was finished. Not once did the waiter come during the meal to ask if we needed anything. I had the tortellini with vodka sauce. Per the online menu and photos on this site, it should have come with a parmesan crusted chicken cutlet. I was told this is no longer the case. For a $20 dollar meal you would think they could include a dollars worth of chicken.
After spending $150 on a meal for two, this was not the experience we had come to enjoy. We will not be rushing back.
Great place to entertain clients.
The steak meal was excellent and expensive. But, their main dining room was closed. So, we had this expensive meal in their crowded sports bar. Lots of TVs playing hip hop and other similar music. Crowded and Very loud. We will not go back to dine during weekdays in that space.
Service and food were excellent and the ambiance was perfect.
From the minute we walked in the door, everyone was so delightful, our Server Rhett was awesome, the apps and dinner was delicious
My boyfriend and I went to Franchesco’s to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and it did not disappoint! Food was amazing and so was our server! We had a great time! Only set back was the noise level but it was a Saturday night.
Having dined here a few years ago and enjoyed the experience we decided to try this place again . Firstly we had booked for Francescos only To be seated in Benny’s. Food was okay at best and really there are restaurants in the area these days with much better food.
Too much noise for conversation
The food and service were excellent! Will definitely go back.
Delicious food and atmosphere. We will be returning for sure.
Dinner, service and ambiance were outstanding. A very enjoyable evening out.
We celebrated my husband's birthday at Franchesco's this past Friday. Caesar was our waiter and did an outstanding job of taking care of us. The food was great and it was a great evening!
Great place to dine. It’s a popular place to meet up with friends. We always get treated well and have a good meal.
We ate with our vegan friends and the server and chef were very accommodating. Always love the food, excellent.
The food was amazing and the server was incredible. They had live music (piano and bass) and it perfectly matched the ambience of the evening
Great food and service provided. The atmosphere is great for any event or date night. I have never had a bad experience.
It was my first time there, and I was impressed with the service and location in general.
One of our favorite restaurants- atmosphere and quality never let us down!
Always a fabulous dinner at Franchesco's. We we taking a visiting friend to Franchesco's for the first time. The food was fantastic and the service was great! Our waiter was energetic and personable. Sadly, the indoor 'waterfalls' were not on / working. So, that seemed a little weird. But overall, it was another fantastic evening. Our guest was truly impressed.
Our party of 3 agreed that the service was very good, but the food was just average.
One of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten! It literally melted in my mouth. We sat in a booth with friends and enjoyed the piano music for three hours. Never felt rushed. We’ll be going back soon.
Franchesco’s is always a wonderful experience. Draft beer is chilled perfectly. Excellent service. The redesigned bar area and new adjacent dining room are great for a nice meal while still watching sporting events.
Our evening started with ordering a bottle of wine offered on the menu. Then we’re told “that wine is $30 more than the price listed on the menu”. We ordered our appetizer feeling rushed to get our dinner orders in by wait staff. We each ordered a salad and entree. The salads we never served.
Benny's inside Francesco's was phenomenal! We had a group of 7 and our server was excellent. She was very unobtrusive but kept our drinks filled and our food orders were right. The new Benny's is super nice and spacious but still have a casual but sophisticated atmosphere. Our food was delicious! I can't wait to go back there.
Great service and great food! Love the remodeling!!
Ambiance is great. Service was prompt and friendly. Always have good service and food at Franchesco's.
Everything was absolutely great from the setting, the music, customer service and the food topped it all. We will be back
Was thrown back with the prices and the fact you do not get a choice of the usual ... salad or soup 🤔. Especially with the prices as they are . I understand that this may have to do with prices that you may pay for such foods ; meat , fish & so forth. No cocktail shrimp ? I just don’t understand why. ? 🤔. I’d actually like to come back , the food is/was good , but a bit much !😳. The prices at the bar were much the same as the food $$$. I loved the seating area but actually would be happier to sit in a more low light situation! Like the old “Grotto, “Michels”. I’m just that way. Our server was ok !!! Not sure if it’s because things are just opening up and it’s been a little while since this person had a chance to do the job as well as I’m sure they can ! Thanks
Overpriced food. Nothing stood out to me taste wise. Visibly appealing, but the taste wasn’t there. Meat was undercooked. Was just a little disappointed.
While I know this can be a casual place, but this is mine and my partner's favorite get dressed up and go on a date spot. We sat out on the closed in patio (winter) which did not feel crowded (covid precautions). The staff were attentive and professional. Food is expensive but the quality is always wonderful.
The food is absolutely delicious. The menu has something for everyone. You won’t be disappointed!
Wine came after we ate appetizers. Steak was ok but pork chop wasn’t what we expected. Overall food was fair but not worth the price of the meal.
Additionally we made a reservation so the Francesco’s restaurant but we’re seated in Benny’s.
Very romantic atmosphere with tremendous steaks cooked to perfection!!!! Server was fantastic also!!
