Open only about 5 months when we visited (twice) they serve pizza and pasta.
Staff are very friendly and do a good job at providing good service.
They do need to have a look at their Ceasar Salad recipe, needs improvement.
Too many croutons and salad dressing was blah!

Absolutely love this place! The pizza is the best in town. Service is friendly and they do a great job even though the place gets very busy.

The service was superb. Try the pizza. We asked for thin crust and dough and they accommodated. It was delicious. We also had pasta and salad. Unfortunately the bruccheta was sold out. We were starving and hoping for a good restaurant. Locals recommended this restaurant and we were so glad to have found it.

We had no plans to stop for dinner on the way to our ferry reservation at Duke Point, but did not know there was highway construction so missed the boat. I was traveling with grandchildren who are fussy eaters, but love pizza. Pulled into Ladysmith, called the restaurant, and found out there was a chidren's menu. We all loved our meal, abd the owner came out to talk to everyone, and invited the kids to return to make their pizza in the kitchen. They can't wait to do that! They had pizzas with cheese and tomato sauce, and I had wonderful halibut and a buffalo mozzarella salad. Ice cream was part of the children's dinner, but my 7 year old grandson saw the cheesecake desert, and I agreed to order it if I could share it with him. We both loved it, and there are many types to choose from, and the pieces are huge. What could have turned out to be a frustrating situation turned into a wonderful one, abd we were all very happy. Wr made the next ferry which was very late with an 8:15 departure, but the evening was an unexpected pleasant experience because of our dinner stop!

We recently attended D'Francos for our first visit. We ordered the mussels for an appetizer. They were very tasty, however, did not come with side plates or a bowl to put empty shells in. Bread arrived when we first came but did not come with the mussels. If you are going to have a delicioius sauce, you should seve bread so that patrons can mop up the sauce with it. Hubby had pasta dish which unfortunately came with the exact same sauce as the mussels so it was a little too much of the same thing. I had the signature burger which was a little too sloppy to eat by picking up so I cut it with a knife and fork. Our quizzing of the wait staff told us that they are not yet fully familiar with the menu. The food was nice but nothing that you can't cook at home. It was missing the WOW factor
