Francesca's Forno is located right in the heart of Wicker Park & Bucktown - directly at North, Damen and Milwaukee Avenue. Francesca's closed the Summer 2011 for several months in order to revamp its look and menu.
The changes have been very positive. The huge new windows open on to Milwaukee Avenue and the bar also faces Milwaukee Avenue. Prior to the make-over the bar was tucked away in the back of the restaurant closer to Damen Avenue.
But Francesca's offers more than people-watching. Sister of the Francesca restaurants throughout the city, Francesca's offers a casual, comfortable atmosphere and innovative twists on old favorites. You have your choice of everything from spinach-filled ravioli in cheese sauce, rigatoni in tomato-basil sauce to grilled salmon or roasted tilapia.
Brunch is one of the best-kept secrets in the neighborhood.
Have you tried the new menu? Let us know. We'd love to know what you think.
