"The room hasn't changed much in the 13 years I last dined here . The food remains excellent. Service is top-notched . The dessert selection was uninspiring compared to my last experience. I do no think S'mores should ever end a five star restaurant experience. The chocolate layer dessert was terrible. I suggests having spectacular desserts as it is the last thing we all remembered."

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. <br /><br />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 have been going here for over a decade. Now about twice a year since moving to Boston. The dining room is cramped and is not conducive to private conversations. The fried calamari remains excellent as was the pea pod salad. The ravioli was top notch. The veal scalapini was a bud thicker than I prefer but had good flavor. The pizza was horrible. The dough had no chewiness and tasted like a pre made store bought crust available at room temperature at aisle 5. The pizza used to be excellent but no longer. I will definitely be back but will never order a pizza again."

Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro and steakhouse. While the favorites are all here in abundance, there is always something new to try from the ever-evolving menu. The traditional menu features classics such as the warm Onion Soup Au Gratin, Frisée & Bacon Salad with a soft-poached egg and croutons, Roast Chicken grand-mère style with mushrooms, bacon and pearl onions, as well as the trademark Steak Frites.<br />To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of over 80 boutique French wine varietals are served by the glass or bottle from our signature rolling wine cart. Guests will enjoy the airy interior with our large French windows opening out onto the Lincoln Park Conservatory, or in the summer months, the lovely outdoor garden.<br />Please Note: Reservations are taken for indoor seating only. Outdoor patio seating is available on first-come, first-serve bases.

"Great thin cut French steaks which are reliably great. Shrimp cocktail is one best I have Hardin Chicago . Peach Melba dessert is great. I didn't care for the small dinner salad as it didn't taste fresh and the dressing acidity overwhelmed any flavor."
