Always has an excellent standard of food
My friend and I dined in the Naples outside in greenhouse, it was super warm and cosy! We loved the addition of the Italian phrasebook and the portable speaker (we played Italian Cafe classics from Spotify) the service was awesome and food was incredible, the whole time I’ve been in NZ I’ve been searching for amazing Italian food and specifically cannoli :) and here it is just down the road in Wanaka! Friendly speedy service. Definitely be back, thank you!
Was a great meal, and even accommodated us with plates for the kids so they could share our food instead of buying kids meals.
Loved the Glasshouse idea!!! Very well set up and private but comfy! Great service!
We are regular visitors to Francesca’s, whenever we are in Wanaka. Dinner was excellent, as always, and the service was great. Thanks! See you again.
Beautiful food and fantastic service
Better now than ever. Well worth the trip from Christchurch. Clams to die for with the black garlic bread
Best food and best service in Wanaka!!! So delicious and such friendly staff. Vegan menu is available with lots of great options for those interested.
We ended up sharing four mains and two starters. All was delicious. Lovely atmosphere.
Excellent meal at Francesca's. All of our dishes were authentic, well balanced and delicious. I paired their Tiramisu with a Prosecco grappa - delicious combo. Service was great - the wait staff were happy to show me the bottles of grappa and liquers so I could make an informed choice. Very bubbly and happy as well. Well done!
Perfect venue for a special occasion without too much fuss...fun & fabulous food
We took some visitors there this week, and as usual everything, the food, service and atmosphere were superb. I would recommend Fransesca's for an all round excellent dining experience.
Amazing Italian food and wine. Highly recommend if your in Wanaka
Delicious Italian food
Again, another wonderful dining experience.
Had a fab meal- the food is better than ever;) with great service! 10/10
As good as we’d heard from numerous friends who’d visited.
We sat in one of the mini greenhouses and it was amazing!! Great idea to provide something out of the ordinary for Wanaka! Great staff, delicious food, perfectly priced!
Always a great time at Francesca’s
Lovely, warm atmosphere. We loved watching the pizza makers at work while enjoying a delicious meal. Fantastic service.
The best, absolutely delicious!!
the menu looks nearly the same from one year till the next. Food is of a good standard though for pizza and pasta is a bit expensive
We were in one of the glasshouses outside and after 30 minutes of sitting there without a drinks order even taken we decided it was best to leave as we had probably been forgotten about! Disapointed to say the least
All round, a great evening.
Consistently lovely food!
