Consistently fabulous food. Can’t recommend highly enough. We eat here every time we visit wanaka, usually more than once so that we can trial all the dishes. Lovely, accomodating, unflappabile staff.

We came in as a party of 11, and had a lovely time. Reservations staff had mad every effort beforehand to accommodate us all, and the service continued to be absolutely excellent throughout our meal. Food delicious, especially the Napoletana pizza. Great house wine. Loved that the kids menu was still ‘proper food’. Atmosphere was friendly, chatty and you didn’t have to keep worrying about shushing your teens, as there was a good buzz of conversation and enjoyment about the place. I’m so pleased we visited Francesca’s

We have been many times, like heaps. The food has and is still excellent. We probably won't dine again for a while. Why you ask. The last three times the service has been less than desirable. So not keen to repeat.

We’ve been dining at Francesca’s ever since it opened and visit every time we’re on holiday in Wanaka (skiing and summer) - what more can I say, we love the food, service and atmosphere and all have remained consistent since opening. Keep it up, we’ll be coming for many more years yet I hope!
