You are viewing the location for Francesca’s on Taylor - Little Italy
Francesca’s on Taylor features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Chicago Magazine notes, “It brings a new kind of abbondanza to an old Italian neighborhood.” It is the fourth restaurant opened by Chef Scott Harris, whose philosophy is to encourage the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices.
Anne Spiselman of Crain’s Chicago Business observes: “A rolled-mesh ceiling, warm woods and geometric light fixtures give the room a rather clubby look, brightened during the day by light coming through the windows facing the street. The bar area is up a step or two, black-and-white photos decorate the walls, while white cloths and butcher paper cover tables set with bottles of good herbed olive oil.”
And, Francesca’s on Taylor takes reservations. “No, it does more; it honors reservations. Twice I made reservations, twice I walked into a packed dining room, and twice I was seated within 10 minutes,” notes respected Chicago Tribune food critic Phil Vettel who claims this to be his favorite Francesca restaurant.
