I am a regular at Francesca's Italian Kitchen. The food is amazing and truly authentic Italian and the service is constantly outstanding. Never disappointed.

Food was amazing. I'm still thinking about the risotto with porcini mushrooms and the tiramisu!!

I was part of a group of 6 none of whom had been before, we all really enjoyed our mains and desserts and all said we would return.

Lovely food. Attentive staff. Service a little too quick. We were still eating our entree when our mains arrived. Would have been nice to have finished our entree before the mains arrived, and to have a bit of time between the courses. Otherwise all good.

It’s expensive for what is really a small serve of pasta with basic ingredients. (I had the prawn pasta) The Italian wine was good value tho!

Food is to die for and the service great, atmosphere good - just maybe not the ideal setting for a romantic date night. Would come again any time for the fabulous food.

The service was great except that I had to remind the waiter to bring the wine we had ordered. He had forgotten and our meals subsequently arrived before the wine!!!! Once that was sorted it was perfect.

Very pleasant evening with friendly service although a little slow on the drinks when there wasn't a lot of people in the restaurant at the time. Delicious food and nicely presented.

The service was beyond amateurish - bringing out the mains before we had finished the starters! Nor any bowls or spoons given with the clams... It was Saturday lunchtime and just a handful of tables so why this "fast food" attitude?? I have eaten with you on numerous occasions because of the delicious menu, but the poor waitressing will make me reconsider in future.
