Not the place to go at the rush hour but good if you can beat it. Menu is limited but can get a good pasta dish and wine for not too much.

Good Italian food in an intimate setting. The menu is limited and they don't offer many, if any, veal dishes, which is surprising for Italian.

Francesca's is a great little Italian restaurant in downtown Lake Forest, just down the street from the Deerpath Inn. Their pastas are very tasty, but I especially enjoy their fish dishes. They have a reasonable wine list and the desserts are good too. The atmosphere is usually bustling and the tables are close to each other. There is a small bar area as you enter. They are really crowded at top dinner hours.

Despite being located in haughty Lake Forest, Francesca's has a cozy, warm ambiance. The wait staff are experienced and unflappable. The food is pretty basic: don't expect anything too wild here. Lots of traditional pasta dishes, and some excellent appetizers, including a warm spinach dish made with garlic and olive oil -- it's incredibly mild and tasty (it has shallots in it as well). Desserts are reliably good. It is a small space, so if you have a large group or plan on going at a peak time, make a reservation. They're open for lunch as well -- but it's not a good place to eat lunch if you only have an hour. The ceilings are covered in fabric decoration which keeps the space from being too loud and clattery. This restaurant is always my first choice when eating in east Lake Forest.

Pros: staff, atomosphere, they don't rush you at all

Cons: none

We have never been disappointed with Francesca's! Although the restaurant is small, the hosts and wait staff manage to make the experience a good one. They are always accomodating even without a reservation. And then there is the food! The appetizers are outstanding, not to mention the pasta, fish, and meat entrees. Enjoy, but don't tell too many people!
