Amazing food and the service is great.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The food was delicious and the service excellent. What more can you ask?
Lovely lunchtime experience, thank you for the good service
I think you need to add a sixth star! Food was superb as usual, however, I had the Risotto, and would only give this a 9 out of 10. Every other meal we have had there has been 10. Best restaurant in ChCh.
Second time dining at Francesca's Kitchen and it was just as great as the first! The wait staff are very friendly and attentive, and the food is just top notch. Highly recommend the beef cheek gnocchi main and the chocolate raspberry cake for dessert!
E' stata una cena deliziosa fantastica.
Amazing menu... food is beautiful... definitely coming back to try out the other meal. Staff are so lovely. Have told everyone we been in contact with over the weekend about how amazing Francesca’s kitchen is. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Great food great service
We were very impressed with how the staff handled the fact that a couple from our party would be quite late due to a family emergency. Even though we needed to be done by 8:30pm we never at any time felt undue pressure being put on, but were gently given a couple of suggestions to help fill our time while we waited, and our main orders were not requested until our late couple had arrived and had time to settle in, all in all we were treated very respectfully and it was efficiency that saved the day as we were still all ready to depart on time without feeling rushed.
Lovely food. Did the lunch special. Very good value. Service good apart from not being onto it with more drinks. It wasn’t busy so.... I had to wave someone down to get another drink.
Good food, great ale, staff didn't seem very enthusiastic which is something to improve on.
Food was fantastic, service just a bit slow as staff not that attentive
Great meal. Delicious flavours
Loved the beef cheek gnocchi
Outanding food and great service. Couldn't fault anything with our meals. Will definitely be back
We had a wonderful night at Francesca's. Food, wine and staff all brilliant. Thank you very much.
Front of house staff didn’t appear to want to be there. We both discussed how unfortunate the service was as food was great.
We ate at Francesca's before attending the ballet. 3 of us shared several starters/entrees. The food was delicious & the staff were very friendly & helpful. Really enjoyed our first experience at Francesca's - we will definitely be back.
Had a lovely lunch here. Very generous portions and friendly staff.
We love coming to Francesca’s for some authentic Italian food. I also have the cook book and love using it for dinner parties. Thank you for having us!
Wonderful food, hard to choose what up order as great menu variety. Lovely presentation, nice staff and general environment.
My second visit with my friend who needed cheering up. The platter is so yummy and different from other places. Chose the fish dish again and it was fab. Unfortunately couldn’t have the lemmoncello cocktail ( which is to die for ) I was the driver but I will return to sample again. Thank you lovely relaxed lunch 😀
Great atmosphere, food and service! Thanks for a lovely evening. Those polenta fries are to die for!!!
