Excellent food and friendly service
when I booked my reservation online, requested a candle with dessert for my guests birthday. Didn't happen. Otherwise, all was great.
My new fav and recommending to all my friends
Great food and wine. Service was prompt and professional. Have been a few times and will be back.
We had a lovely evening, definitely found one of our favorite restaurants.
The restaurant was really busy in the early evening but our booking was 8pm and it was starting to clear by then. Although there were a lot of people the noise level wasn't too bad, the staff were friendly and the meal was fantastic!
We had the most amazing meal ever, the beef cheeks were melting the merino lamb pasta was pure perfection and the tiramisu well that was the best desert I have ever tasted. we look forward to coming back soon.
Amazing experience: best Italian in Christchurch. Lovely food and excellent service. Thank you
Great meal thanks. Service was so fast. Thanks.
1st time and fell in love! What a lovely space. My pizza was perfection!!! Been craving more today! Keep up the great work guys!!
A very nice place for a couple's dinner. The food is very good and not your everyday Italian restaurant. It is a bit more high-end but definitely worth the visit.
As previous diners we recommended and accompanied a group of nine to Francesca's. The restaurant is well set up for larger groups, food is authentic and delicious and the staff delightful. Both the menu and wine list pricing is at the top end.
Great friendly service. The polenta fries were amazing & so was the gnocchi & pappardelle. Half carafe of Chianti topped it all off nicely. Will definitely be back!
Great Pizzas and fast service! It was my second time here and I'll definitely come back :-)
Our favorite ChCh restaurant, delicious food, friendly staff and worth mentioning again, Great food!
Really enjoyed a great meal with friends.
Food was great but mains took so long to arrive.
Beautiful duck main course, 4 cheese pizza was stunning, lovely Shiraz, was a little cold, kept my coat on
Great dinner theater combination.
Lovely food and great service. Really enjoyed everything
The food was all great thanks. The gnocchi were light and fluffy, absolutely delicious but it would be nice to have a little less of the beef cheek and a little vegetable. My companions really enjoyed theirs too which was Pasta Norma and Antipasto Platter eaten as a main. The wait staff was really attentive and friendly so full marks to her.
I'm really glad I found about about this restaurant. My best friend and I went before a performance at the Isaac Theatre Royal, which is next door. We had two side dishes and an anitipasti platter. The only reason I'm not giving them five stars for the food is because I haven't tried their pizza or pasta dishes yet, but I will go back. Their staff is friendly and attentive without being annoying. Highly recommended.
Seemed to take a long time between entree and mains but the pasta was fantastic
Food was divine, the potato skins absolutely scrumptious.
