As an American living in New Zealand, I have been disappointed by countless pizzas. Francesca's goes above and beyond with their delicious variety, perfectly fired crust, and affordable price. Delicious enough to have every night.

I could make a better pizza with my eyes closed. Mushroom and cheese slapped on a bare base. Tastless, bland, disappointing. Service was good.

They couldn't accommodate my wife's gluten and dairy free needs very well. The house red wine was very good.

You need to book ahead here. They are incredibly popular all year round. The pizza and pasta menu are lovely. Great service and friendly staff. Wonderful selection that does not make it hard to decide. Pats and Beef cheeks- JUST GORGEOUS!!!!

I love my pizza's and I like to try one wherever I visit. Francesca's are very tasty with that lovely wood oven taste to them, I thought they were over priced for what they are and not much of a choice of toppings which I found unusual. Pizza's cost pennies to make and when I ordered a large pizza I... More

We selected Pizza's from their online menu. They were well described and we were very pleased with the delicious fresh Pizza's. When we ordered, they were very accurate about when it could be delivered. Great Pizza's and great service
