In search of a hearty meal, great customer service, fair prices, and a beautiful outdoor terrace? Look no further! The Mia Francesca, Lakeview location, offers all of this and more. Serving you authentic Italian cuisine with fresh ingredients, Mia Francesca is the perfect place for a family dinner, date night, or an evening spent with friends.

The Francesca’s Restaurants Group originally began when the owner Scott Harris opened the Lakeview location in 1992. What was once just a small, welcoming restaurant on Clark Street has grown into a restaurant empire of 3 concepts across 33 locations. Despite the many Francesca’s Restaurants I have eaten at, the original location in Lakeview has to be my favorite - after all I’ve been eating there since I was two years old.

Mia Francesca really fits in well with the Lakeview neighborhood. Located along a large stretch of Lake Michigan’s shoreline, Lakeview is one of the most easily accessible neighborhoods in the city. With two L stops nearby, there is no problem getting to Mia Francesca without a car!

Two of my favorite parts about Mia Francesca besides the food is the friendly atmosphere and the beautiful outdoor terrace. As soon as we walk in we’re always greeted immediately, and the staff is always accommodating. Generally, I prefer to sit in the back terrace area, because it’s quaint and a bit more laid back than the indoor seating area.
