"Italian Fare with Francesca's flair" This was Brook Gardiner - an Otago restaurant critic's recent summary of her meal at Francesca's. Today was my third visit -- a business lunch but previously for relaxed evening meals with family and friends. It has been a great summer in Wanaka and although Autumn is here the outside dining tables, overlooking the landscaped creek are always occupied.The entire "kitchen" with its wood fired pizza oven is buzzing. The staff, successfully led by Francesca in her new venture, are happy, motivated and willing to please. The food is superb my meal a hot smoked salmon pizza with masses of fresh herbs, a green salad and a glass of deliciously chilled house wine. Sadly no time for one of the delicious puddings such as my favourite a Set lemon cream with limoncello stawberries but there is no question I'll be back to what is proving to be Wanaka's newest and most popular restaurant.
