Very expensive. No hot water in the restrooms--serious issue for such a high scale restaurant. Slow service and had to send back entree.

Francesca's is one of very few restaurants in Palos Parks, but certainly worth the visit. The food is always very good and the staff is very friendly and efficient. You cannot go wrong at Francesca's.
