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.
My husband and I were on our honeymoon. And thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and our meal at Francesca’s. Service was great too! Food was served in good time
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.
Excellent service and the food was amazing!
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!
Had a great night. Excellent food. Thank you
A wonderful restaurant, the food is outstanding and very professional staff
Could be a little warmer.
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.
Great night thanks really enjoyed.
Expensive wine list - cheapest Pinto Noir bottle was $70.00🤔
Always love it here. We recommend it a lot.
Had to ask for a drinks menu!
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.
Great service and delicious food! Thanks very much you made Mum's birthday very special.
Perfect location right next to Theatre Royal - staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu - service great and the food was just amazing. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!
The food was delicious.
Wonderful evening enjoying true Italian food. Service was brilliant. Fun family birthday time. Thanks so much.
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.
Wonderful birthday lunch celebration thank you
We absolutely loved our dinner. I would happily recommend you to everyone! Hope to be back soon.
