La Sorella Di Francesca is my favorite Italian restaurant in the Naperville area. I've eaten at many of this families restaurants and have been pleased with the food and service at each place. Everyday, they put new food on the menu, the food is fresh and always has great flavors. One thing that is a must when you come here is the Spinach, it's wonderful. My wife and I actually come here quite a bit and will continue to. The food is always delicious, my only complaint would be that sometimes our server is MIA, not always but a few times we had to get up to find our server, which is kind of annoying. However, I would highly recommend eating here, you won't be disappointed.
Best Italian Food in Town.
Great food, Friendly staff. Can be very crowded, and the wait to be seated long. Definitely a place that does not believe in rushing anything, all thing in their own good time. But as they say good things come to those that wait, and that is really true of the food here. Give it a try.
We have enjoyed meals at Mia Francesca in Elmhurst, Dundee and Naperville. Elmhurst location definately benefitted from Zealous previous occupation of that artsy space. Dundee was loud and family friendly. Naperville was small, loud with well dressed young office workers coming home after the train ride. Yet the staff was hustling, and wearing wide welcoming smiles. Watch the busy barman shake his martinis and work the computer screen at the same time--great guy. The food at all locations is SO good. The house Francesca salad is ample for two. The lobster bisque is better, less salty (sorry to say) than Chinn's 34th Street Fishery. Still looking for Francesca and her lovely, friendly warm and delicious hospitality in what ever location she is hiding. We WILL persue "her".
Bravo, finally an authentic Italian restaurant moves nearby! It's wonderfully romantic and serene...even the children behave here! The food is exquisite with the best ingredients and a light touch in the kitchen. Not heavily starchy, sauced, ingredient-laden or over-cooked...the perfect Itailian peasant fare and what everybody need to try. It get's crowded, so reservations are a must...and the cute bar is teeny.
Downtown Chicago Feel.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there this year and found it delightfully cozy. We've been there 3 times within the last year. We've been very happy with their house salad and their veal have always been very well cooked and very tasty. The price is a bit on the high side, but no more than what you would find at Rosebud's or a high end Italian restaurant. The second floor is definitely a quiter and more open dining room, while the first floor seems to be louder with the bar crowd. I prefer a quieter dining setting so the 2nd floor is a lot more to my taste. However, the wonderful food makes noise volume more bearable.
