Myself and partner arrived in the Jesmond area of Newcastle not knowing where to eat and we were told about this place. We arrived and waited for about 10-15 minutes and a waiter taken our orders before we were seated. Once seated the food came quickly and was very nice. Top service also and would go back again if in the area!

First time here and not disappointed. No booking needed, but had to wait a little while as we were a party of 9. Once seated service was pretty quick and all of our orders arrived soon after. Portion sizes were perfect and food was very tasty. Definitely a great place to eat and very family friendly. Total cost for food and drinks for everyone less than £80, excellent value for money.

Stuck in a b & b all week decided to wander down the road and try this place out. 6.15 on a Tuesday night and it was packed, got to be a good sign. Went for the whitebait starter which was great, big portion too then Calzone pizza for main which again was huge. Washed down with a Moretti beer all for £13, it is hard to argue with that. Fine dining it is not but good value tasty food it was. I will be back

My friend and I and our children visited Francesca's for lunch yesterday. Five of us arrived at 2pm knowing that they served till 2-30. We were ignored at first then told to wait. We finally got sat down. We ordered 2 halves of pizza for 2 children which came unsliced and when asked if they would mind cutting them in the kitchen you'd think we were asking the earth! needless to say they didn't do it. It was too much trouble for them. I must say I've never been anywhere where the waiters are so miserable and rude. I have frequented this restaurant for 25 years and have never had service like this before, admittedly, I haven't been for a while and certainly won't go back. There are far nicer friendlier Italian restaurants to go to.
