Our pizza arrived and unfortunately base and toppings were cold; it was replaced happily with another by your staff and was much appreciated by us. All round a pleasant experience; good food and vino with cheery staff.

Food was delicious, particularly pumpkin risotto which 3 out of 4 of us chose. Being vegetarian it was a delight to see so many genuine options on the menu. As usual the polenta fries were "to die for'

Everything was perfect from the staff and service to our beautiful meals. The fish was delicious, in fact every dish was beautifully prepared and presented. Great location in the city centre next to Isaac Theatre Royal. I will most definitely be returning to Francesca’s and can highly recommend this restaurant.

A wonderful place for a night out with friends, or a romantic dinner for two. Relaxed ambience, excellent menu. My meal was delicious, quality ingredients and beautifully prepared. The service was spot on too. I look forward to returning!
