Everyone was... More

Just an average pizza. The size is generous enough but the garlic taste dominated my pizza. Has a home made feel to the finished product.

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!!!!

A good wood fired pizza, the flavours are good and venture from your traditional flavours. It has a eating place(one table) just outside, but you can take the pizza to a more attractive spot.
