Excellent food and service! Would highly recommend
5 out of 6 dishes (2 diners) were excellent and the 6th was good. Can't get a whole lot better than that!
Delicious! The flavours and texture of every dish was amazing. Thank you.
Very personable wait staff

Outstanding food and service will definitely be returning
Really nice to be in a professionally run restaurant. Appreciated the attentive service. The pork hock cheese, and pasta special was to die for. Everybody else loved their meals. We all had a good time. Was my first visit. Will be back.
Great food, handmade, great service. Have been many times and also recommended to others ... Handy to the theatre and loads of parking. Love the #NoPineapple T-shirt on the Pizza dude :0)
Great food, had 3 courses and it was all delicious!
The pizza and pasta sooo Italian. Finally, my search for authentic Italian in Christchurch has come to an end. The pizza base is soft which i really like. I wish more vegetarian options in the pizza menu. Overall, it was pleasant experience.
Food is consistently great.
First time at Francesca’s and I was impressed with having options being vegan and also options for GF friends. Beautiful food! Lovely dining experience.
First time @FIK. After reading good reviews to be honest it left us disappointed especially compared to Italian restaurants in Wellington and Puglia. The pork hock pasta special left my partner hunting for pork which we had expected to be the star of the dish. Both of us have owned restaurants previously and understand food costings but this was quite frankly mean for $28. My pizza was to have included fresh thyme but it to was hard to find though the base and goat cheese were perfect. Service was outstanding - attentive and friendly.
Potato skins are awesome and so were the staff
Always great food and lovely friendly staff. Didn't have enough time for your wonderful Tiramasu. ..will be back soon just for that! !!
Great food and service. (Once again)
Love coming here. Don't change a thing😍
A very fine evening to celebrate my partner's birthday. Always difficult to choose from your menu...so many good things.
A great evening in a party of 10. Fabulous food. We started with a couple of platters and 3 serves of close to the best Polenta Fries we have had! Also a serve of the salmon entree. Pasta and pizza mains were awesome. The desserts were a real hit too, with the set cream a real hit! Just let down by the service ... very friendly staff, but 2 mains were forgotten, and later in the meal, a dessert cocktail and 2 coffees were not brought out. However, this certainly did not detract from the beautiful meal we had together in a great Restaurant in the Chch scene. Thanks
Lovely meal & good service. Tiny thing - a cold evening out and just slightly too cool inside. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyable outing.
Great service and atmosphere. Limited main meal options
Fantastic lunch thanks
We had a lovely meal. The service was excellent and we enjoyed our food and wine immensely. Thank you.
All the meals were excellent as always. Great atmosphere and the service was faultless. Can’t wait to return!
