We’re the little place with big taste! Franco’s is a family owned Italian restaurant and a Chicago favorite for more than 25 years. We're from Italy, so we know how to cook, eat, and enjoy life. Sharing our fresh, authentic, handmade food with you is our greatest joy. We have been a proud vendor in Taste of Chicago, the nation’s premier outdoor food festival since 1989. We specialize in homemade Italian lemon ice and creamy gelato. We love being a part of the summertime festivals that showcase our wonderful city.
