forno01.jpg Francesca's restaurants are becoming as ubiquitous as owner/chef Scott Harris can find locations to open them. If you've got $8 to spare, then the special today only at Francesca's Forno (1576 N. Milwaukee; 773-770-0184) might be worth stepping in.

$8 will buy you a caprese salad and spaghetti funghetto: spaghetti tossed with wild mushrooms, mascarpone cheese, marjoram, brandy-veal sauce and white truffle oil.
