We really enjoyed everything about our night out at Francesca’s. We are locals who haven’t been to Francesca’s for a few years as it was difficult to get a table at a time that suited, and we had always been rushed. tonight was fabulous - thank you

The service was excellent however a couple of our meals were very disappointing. The Lamb Pappardelle only had 2 tiny slivers of lamb and the Prawn Rigatoni was dry. We chose to have wine by the glass and were surprised by the meagre amount in the glass. Less than a standard drink at $16 per glass! The Salmon meal on the other hand was excellent. Inconsistent and overpriced.

The maitre d, short guy, loved himself way too much, was RUDE, incredibly unfriendly and cared way more about his appearance than the quality of the food. Our waitress was lovely and tried her best but the food was below average, we did not eat it, be lucky if we ate even half. On leaving the maitre d asked how everything was which we explained was not great.. no further questions were asked and payment was asked for. Would not recommend this place and honestly would not be back. Sort this guy out, he needs to be brought down a peg or 2
