pizza is great and excellent service
Beautiful food, highly recommended. I'll be back
As handicapped Senior Citizens we always enjoyed being able to drive up to your restaurant within walking distance. Now you have a Privatised Parking yard in front, I doubt if Robin and I can come and enjoy your service. What a huge pity for us. Typical these days for accommodating the Aged and Infirm. Pleasures are more and more restricted every day. We have been with you ever since you opened for business some years ago. Best wishes Bruce & Robin Kendall
We really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere, a great night!
Staff very welcoming and helpful. Lovely atmosphere with great music in background.We shared polenta fries with truffle aioli and both chose pasta for our main courses- - beef cheeks with gnocchi and prawns with paccheri which were very satisfying. A glass of chianti each made for a lovely evening. We will be back again.
Great Italian food, lovely fast service and not too expensive!
Lovely food, with a good atmosphere for Sunday lunch
All our table enjoyed our meals
Lovely meal with fantastic service. Only thing that I’d mention is there was a large amount of chilli in the salmon dish which I loved but might be too much for some, especially as it isn’t mentioned on the menu
Amazing authentic Italian food - can't wait to come again!
Food was great. Service prompt. Highly recommend
Yet again an amazing dining out experience on every level. Many thanks.
Being locals we know we need to book. First time I have used the internet based booking and it worked well, even when I had to change the booking a couple of times. The food is consistently good and well priced. Always an enjoyable time at Francesca's.
Couldnt fault anything! So tasty!!

Loved it as always guys. The food seemed better than it has been recently and service was top notch. We had a great night. Thank you!
We’ve eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Food and service are always great even though the restaurant is very busy. We had a hungry young child with us last night and she was able to place her order and receive her meal well before the adults which was much appreciated.
Always a lovely time at Francesca's!
Most amazing beef cheek gnocchi. House white was a hit too. Lovely service from all the staff
AS ALWAYS everything about our dining experience at Francesca's WAanaka was AMAZING! Highly recommend!
