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.

We spent an evening here with a group of 18 adults. Everyone enjoyed the dishes and between the group we pretty much covered the whole menu. It was our first time there and I (and my wife) were surprised to find such a limited menu. It's pretty unusual for an Italian restaurant to not have any type of ravioli or lasagna on the menu. The food was good and the service was OK. Since we had a large party they seated us in t
a separate room where we were the only people. They put together a number of tables which is normal but they could have added 1-2 more tables so we wern' rubbing elbows with each other. They also cramed the table near the wall so if anyone needed to use the restroom, everyone in the row along the wall had to get up to let them out. May seen petty but, really with the whole room empty they could have given us some room to enjoy the meal. We would return but not with a large group if that's how they pack you in.

Never a bad dinner here. Food is made fresh, and if want something thats not on the menu, they will try to accommodate you. Food is constantly great. Can be loud at times, because everyone is having a good time.

Went to lunch and there were 18 of us so I knew it wouldn't be easy, but we got there at 2pm and didn't get our food until 3:30! One lady had to leave without eating because she asked for her's to go and it never came. I ordered a shrimp dish for $14 and got 4 shrimp. This is not downtown Chicago! The restaurant wasn't packed with people but service wasn't the best. I think they were understaffed. Love the other Francesca restaurants but don't think I'll be going back to this one!

This restaurant is the best Italian place in Palos Park. The food is consistently good. We have been here many many times, and we are never disappointed. The service is excellent. Michelle is just an amazing waitress. She is very knowledgeable about the food. So, if you are vegetarian, she will have the chef modify the food to suit your needs. The pasta is al dente, the vegetables are fresh, and vibrant, and cooked to perfection. No mushy stuff here. They have a party room, and are very accommodating. We have celebrated family events here, and they modified the catering menu to accommodate our requests. They also have specials from Monday-Thursday. I think kids eat free on Mondays, so the place gets pretty busy with kids. Wednesday’s are half priced wines, and it is a great deal. So glad to have this restaurant in Palos. Just lovely!
