My friend and I dined in the Naples outside in greenhouse, it was super warm and cosy! We loved the addition of the Italian phrasebook and the portable speaker (we played Italian Cafe classics from Spotify) the service was awesome and food was incredible, the whole time I’ve been in NZ I’ve been searching for amazing Italian food and specifically cannoli :) and here it is just down the road in Wanaka! Friendly speedy service. Definitely be back, thank you!

Was a great meal, and even accommodated us with plates for the kids so they could share our food instead of buying kids meals.

Excellent meal at Francesca's. All of our dishes were authentic, well balanced and delicious. I paired their Tiramisu with a Prosecco grappa - delicious combo. Service was great - the wait staff were happy to show me the bottles of grappa and liquers so I could make an informed choice. Very bubbly and happy as well. Well done!

We took some visitors there this week, and as usual everything, the food, service and atmosphere were superb. I would recommend Fransesca's for an all round excellent dining experience.

We were in one of the glasshouses outside and after 30 minutes of sitting there without a drinks order even taken we decided it was best to leave as we had probably been forgotten about! Disapointed to say the least
