One of the best Italian restaurants in the town. Food is fantastic,not to pricey which is a bonus. Staff very friendly. Would need to book a table in advance as it gets very busy.

My husband and I came here with his grandparents having seen the great reviews on Tripadvisor but most importantly due to the Gluten Free pasta option. We all enjoyed our meal and found the prices very affordable. The meals arrived quickly and the staff were nice enough.

First impressions were good, the place is nicely decorated and service was quick and friendly. The food was nothing special, but tasty enough and cheap for what you get. Overall very good value and I would visit again.

Visited Francescas in early May with a party of 20. They were most helpful when boooking a large party, and the service was exceptional when we arrived. The food was served promptly and was excellent, and after the meal we were allowed to use their side bar for some more drinks. Altogether a very pleasant evening.

We were a party of 10 people who showed up at 6pm on a Saturday night with no booking, felt awful. But they managed to get a table together for us very quickly. The staff were so friendly and the service was very fast. Everyone commented on how lovely their food was and what large platefuls we got. We also... More

Never had a bad meal at francescas. Love it and go with family/kids/friends, no matter what they cater to everyone. Can get a bit loud on the weekends but it adds to the atmosphere.x
