We went there and the table we were seated was dirty. No one care of something we may need. A Place absolutely I won't recommend, no customer service. No worth it.

Great flavours and generous portions. Super friendly staff, very attentive and fast. A bit pricey but I’d rather pay a little more and have amazing food. Thanks for a great evening.

This is a classic destination in Wanaka and has a very loyal following. A organised welcome and no pressure at any stage to be out by the supposed 2h rule. We enjoyed pizza for the lads and excellent pasta dishes for the adults. There is a tendency for the meat element to be fairly meagre but the flavours are wll there. Drinks were easy with good selection of beers and a variety of wines - some Itallian, some local.

The food at Francesca’s Is very good and the atmosphere is too. This is the best casual Restaurant in Wanaka - and has been since it started some years ago.
