Mia Francesca




The Francesca's philosophy of good, simple cooking, served in a casually sophisticated dining atmosphere is one that is proudly carried over to wedding events. This Chicago-based restaurant group offers classic Italian favorites in an ambiance of sophisticated comfort. Mia Francesca Lakeview is a beautiful location to host your wedding celebration. The space was renovated in 1992 with painstaking attention devoted to preserving as many of the original fixtures as possible. Sleek lines are softened by warm woods; the well-lit dining rooms reflect the animation of the diners; striking black and white photographs of rural Italian life line the walls to create a comfortable, decidedly urban setting. The plush upstairs dining room and lounge is an ideal setting for your reception. Or, choose the coachhouse behind the restaurant to host your reception dinner. Either space will accommodate your family and friends as you dine, dance and celebrate your new beginning as a married couple.
