Join Francesca’s Fortunato and the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, May 18th for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and unveiling of their new sidewalk café in the heart of downtown Frankfort.  Enjoy specials on Italian-style sangria throughout the event and visit all summer long for superb al-fresco dining and a front row seat to the hustle and bustle of all the happenings of downtown Frankfort.  The sidewalk café seats 25, additional patio seating for 50 available.

The patio at Francesca’s Passaggio in Naperville is quickly becoming a destination for live music enthusiasts in the Western suburbs.  Beautifully appointed with lush greenery, seating for 68 and a table-top fire feature like nothing you’ve ever seen, guests can kick-back and enjoy performances every Friday and Saturday evening over a great Italian meal.  If live music isn’t your thing, join us Sunday-Thursday for al-fresco dining and catch an evening ball game on one of their 2 flat-screen patio TV’s.  The word is spreading quickly about this hidden gem, so join us soon!
