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!

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.

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.

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 😀
