Fodor's Review

Moderate prices and a smart, urbane style drive ceaseless crowds to this Lakeview storefront. Enlightened Italian dishes like classic bruschetta, quattro formaggi (four-cheese) pizza, artichoke and prosciutto pasta, and roast chicken are made with fresh ingredients and avoid stereotypical heaviness. The limited meat options keep the menu prices low. While you wait for one of the small, tightly spaced tables—and you will wait—you can have a drink at the

bar. There are more than 20 other Francesca's locations around town, including Francesca's Forno in Wicker Park, Francesca's on Taylor in Little Italy, and Francesca's on Chestnut in the Gold Coast.

highly overrated

bruschetta is delicious but restaurant is too small and one sits way too close to neighbors, no privacy. the food is good but nothing special, run of the mill italian which is overrated. coco pazzo is definitely a much better choice.
