Mia Francesca

The first restaurant in The Francesca's Restaurant Group, Mia Francesca features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. It was one of the first restaurants in Chicago to encourage the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, simple, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices.

About The Francesca’s Restaurant Group: Founded in 1992 by Restaurateur Scott Harris, Francesca’s Restaurant Group has grown from a small, welcoming Italian restaurant on Chicago’s North Clark Street to a restaurant group of three concepts across 33 locations and four states. Based in Chicago, Francesca’s Restaurant Group currently owns and operates 23 Francesca’s Restaurants, five Davanti Enoteca, and five Glazed and Infused locations.

"I randomly decided to try Mia Francesca for a Sunday brunch. We had 4 people in our party. SO GOOD. Better than expected. We ordered: sweet pancakes, steak and eggs, crispy chicken hash, and one prix fixe lunch menu. Wow.
Really delightful staff - right balance of attentiveness and space.
Thanks!"

"They got a little behind the eight-ball with Restaurant Week. We sat for 20-30 minutes and twice had to ask who was our server. The Restaurant Week menu did not seem like any kind of a bargain and we ended up just ordering off the menu. However, once they got it sorted out who was going to wait on us, the service was impeccable and the food fantastic. HIGHLY recommend the polenta and eggs. YUM!!"

"For a romantic - and delicious - dinner, ask for a table in the coach house in back. It was very private and quiet, and we got great personalized service. We walked out through the "regular" restaurant and could not believe the difference in noise level! Great food in either area."

"Four of us went on a Saturday night, about 15 minutes before our reservation time. It was super crowded, so we worked our way to the bar in the detached back bar/dining room. Service was super slow, starting with getting drinks at the bar. The bartender took and filled each person's drink order separately, and chatted with other servers in between orders, so it took a good 5-7 minutes for us all to get one drink. We got seated on time, but the slow service continued. Three tables of two were seated after us and all three had finished their main courses before we got our appetizers. When our meals finally came, they were fine, but nothing special, and certainly not worth the wait. After our main dishes, the server (I think) offered us complimentary coffee/dessert to thank us for our patience (I wasn't clear whether it would be comp'ed, but my husband interpreted his question that way), which we declined. I would have much preferred if they had taken something off the bill rather than offering to prolong an already-too-long dinner."

"Our food and service were great at Francesca's on Clark. We used to go to the one in Orland Park and loved it. We were delighted to learn that one on Clark is just as good!"

"Food is always plentiful and very well prepared as traditional Italian like you find in Italy. Prices very reasonable and basically cannot go wrong with anything."
