Francesca’s Amici opened in July 1999 and is the 6th restaurant in "The Family of Francesca Restaurants", bringing downtown Elmhurst a restaurant with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices. The menu features the zesty earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Located in the heart of downtown Elmhurst, the restaurant is centrally located to Downtown Chicago and the Western Suburbs. The design features a rolled-mesh ceiling, warm woods, colorful slate and geometric light fixtures. Striking black and white photographs of rural Italian life by Paul Elledge line the walls to create a comfortable, decidedly urban setting.
