At Francesca’s Italian Kitchen we are passionate about authentic Italian cuisine and hospitality. We only use the freshest produce and the finest quality local and imported ingredients. Our chefs specialize in Italian cuisine and prepare every dish with careful skill and a love of Italian cooking. To accompany our food, we have a wide selection of beverages to enjoy. Our wine list includes many local NZ and Italian wines and we offer an extensive range of craft beers, spirits and cocktails. We are proud to serve Allpress Coffee.


Our cookbook is now available for purchase either in our restaurants, online and at Paper Plus stores nationwide

Featuring over 80 unique recipes from our restaurant kitchens plus dishes inspired by our journey around Italy, the book is ultimately inspired by the Italian ethos of cooking - fresh, local, exceptionally GOOD produce, cooked simply.
