About Francesca's Italian Kitchen Wanaka
At Francesca’s Italian Kitchen we are passionate about authentic Italian cuisine and hospitality. We only use the freshest produce and the finest quality local and imported ingredients. Our chefs specialize in Italian cuisine and prepare every dish with careful skill and a love of Italian cooking. To accompany our food, we have a wide selection of beverages to enjoy. Our wine list includes many local NZ and Italian wines and we offer an extensive range of craft beers, spirits and cocktails. We are proud to serve Allpress Coffee.
We came two nights ago and obviously selected the things we wanted the most then. Tonight we enjoyed our meal very much but thought the food was more enjoyable on Tuesday.
It was absolutely amazing!
Everything amazing as usual!
My partners meal had to be altered due to a nut allergy, we felt the meal was significantly smaller because of this. Otherwise meal came quick and mine (beef cheeks with gnocchi) was lovely.
Everything was lovely!
We were so impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. The food was absolutely delicious too.
Our waitress Erica was wonderful and delightful - very attentive and helpful, however not intrusive. Food and drinks were superb - one of the best dining experiences we have had in Wanaka, thank you!
Great restaurant. Always go back and the quality has never ever faltered.
Great food. Booking is a must!
Delicious as always even now that I'm completely vegan.
Try the gnocchi!
Great food :)
Service was on point. starters absolutely delicious especially the beetroot tortellini. tiramisu didn't disappoint. happy days
Great experience, thank you!
Lovely evening, great Italian food! Good service and lovely atmosphere.
Thanks. Service was faultless and food awesome.
I rated the service badly as I had to ask for water and a drinks order some time after we arrived. We were seated and just left unattended. After a long day skiing everyone wants a drink kids included. Need to attend to that as soon as you seat guests. Otherwise ok.
Great meal - and we will come again when we're next in Wanaka. Thanks
One of our favourite restaurants. Atmosphere, service and flavoursome food always consistently good.
The pizza is very nice!!! This is one of the best pizza that we have tried so far. Even better than we had in Italy!
We were a little disappointed in our dinner at Francesca’s - especially when compared with several of the other places we ate in Wanaka and Queenstown. I made a reservation well in advance, but the woman who seated us seemed harassed and distracted. We had to ask for a kid’s menu (despite having a child with us) - and then had to ask for a crayon - or anything - so our child could use the menu. The food was good - but not exceptional, and frankly didn’t make up for the service. It was especially annoying as we were celebrating our 10th anniversary that night and - while we didn’t mention it - it would have been nice to feel like we were valued from the moment we walked in - no matter what occasion (or not) we were dining out for.
Very enjoyable evening
We are visitors from Wellington and had an awesome meal. The server we had was fantastic. Definitely be back.
Awesome food. Loved it!
