+ Generous portion sizes + Friendly attentive staff + Lovely, reasonably priced food - crowded seating - busy ALL the time Definitely worth a visit, as evidenced by the fact that you will almost always have to wait for a table at this popular local restaurant! Something on the menu for everyone and very reasonably priced.

Me and my husband love it here! Everything about it is amazing! Although you can't book tables and have to wait to be seated the queue always goes down quickly. The staff are lovely and the food is outstanding! Massive portion sizes! Look forward to going back! Also not expensive if you looking for a nice Italians out!

The husband & I visited on a Saturday lunch time. I had insalata tricolore. Juicy chunks of mozzarella & tomato drizzled with olive oil. Hubby had anti pasta which when arrived at our table we had to ask if it was a main course. It was huge. Both were delicious. The mains we chose were calzone and veggie cannelloni. We... More

I loved the homely decor of this restaurant; it was so cosy! You should come here early as I know this restaurant gets filled up very fast. The food was so cheap and yummy; and the portions were big. I was also served by very friendly staff, and that only makes the experience better!! I will definitely come again.

Francesca's is always fantastic. A great family ran restaurant. A must if your visiting Newcastle. King prawns and garlic butter starter is a must for me every time.

What meal this was! Had to queue on arrival as the place was packed to the rafters. However, well worth it. Service was very fast, with very helpful waiters. The décor is done in authentic Italian style, although the tables are all very close together. The restaurant offers half and half dishes, (half a pizza, half pasta of your choice).... More

I made a quickish meal in here with friends. The menu selection is extensive and very very reasonably priced. I had the meat canelone which was superb. My wife was also pretty pleased with her pizza. Wine was a bargain at £12 a bottle. Nicely decorated and quite 'authentic' feeling. Only issue I would say is that some of the... More

Great meal today, really good value for money. Half pizza/half pasta (pasta not a half portion) is only £6. I was stuffed and it was lovely. Kids enjoyed it. Great garlic kings prawns.

Would definitely recommend this place. Lovely authentic decor inside! Great atmosphere - you should get there early as the place fills out!! The food is so cheap but absolutely lovely and fresh! I went for a pizza with rocket and Palma ham and it was so good! The staff were efficient and friendly. You will be surprised how cheap it... More
