Ate at Francesca's again last night - we arived just after 6 and were able to get a table straight away - but only just! Fresh crusty bread with butter kept us going as the waiter took our order. We were able to see meals being served - they all looked delicious. Soon ours arrived - and as usual it... More

Food was average, staff never smiled and looked miserable no customer service, bread rolls brought out no side plates knife used on buttering bread then placed on the table as no plates then had to use it for my main as not given another knife. Would not recommend and won't be going back food average but with so much choice... More

I have now been here twice as a lone diner due to work commitments. The first time I visited Francesca's I was greeted with very polite staff that were more than happy to welcome a lone diner. As the menu is extremely hearty and believe me, there is a lot to choose from I asked the waiter what he recommended.... More

This is a brilliant restaurant with very good staff. You have to queue but the time goes fairly quickly as the staff are good at turning the tables around. I had a delicious pizza and the bill was extremely reasonable.

We waited probably 20 mins ( arrived at 5:30 ) but it soon got much busier. Staff were very friendly and courteous especially considering... More

This place is just amazing, a little gem on a quiet street in Jesmond. If you don't make opening time (5.00pm) you will have to queue, as they don't take bookings, but it is so worth the wait. Staff are friendly and funny, service is fast, and the quality of the food is just outstanding. Freshly made, authentically Italian. The... More
