I have been coming to this restaurant for over 20years now and it never disappoints, i should have wrote this review many years ago. Every Italian restaurant I have crossed the doors of has been compared to Francesca’s and I’ve never been to one that comes close to beating it for quality, price and taste. We had a meal on Saturday evening and it was fantastic as usual. I had the Garlic King Prawns to start with and the complimentary bread which is always delish and fresh. The king prawns are to die for and it's a confession of mine that i very rarely stray from this as a starter however the other dishes I’ve had here have also been very good ( King Prawn Piccani? Muscles)
The queue, which is always out of the door is a testimony to how great this place is given that you cannot book a table. The food is to a very high standard with a small price tag. I love the fact you can get a 1/2 bottle of house wine which is very nice, ideal for me as my partner doesn’t like wine so it means i can get this for myself rather than a full bottle. For my main i had Fillet Steak with Peppercorn sauce, again delicious, the beef just melted in your mouth, one of the nicest steaks I’ve ever had, i could eat it again as i write this. Hand cut chips are huge portion and very nice . The portions here are very large and you can request to take home anything you can’t manage to eat. The atmosphere is excellent, very hustle and bustle but everyone is in good spirits, I remember going here as a child and being terrified of the singing Italian waiters but as I have grown up with this place it is now somewhere that I hold very close to my heart, it has never changed although the waiters are a little older they still offer a great customer experience and make this place what it is. I urge anyone who has not been to go and experience this place for its Fantastic food, atmosphere and value for money, it is a refreshing change from any restaurant chains or bargain happy hour Italians deals, you will not be disappointed.
