Incredible Italian food

This is one of my favourite restaurants ever, the food is just WOW and I would give it 5 🌟 if I could. It is the quality I would expect at a very upmarket city restaurant, but in the suburbs and at regular restaurant prices. You will not regret a visit here.

Pros: Arancini balls to die for, The best lasagne I've ever had, Gnocci with pesto... I😍

Cons: Serves meat and fish 😔

Best Italian dinner I've ever had, including Italy's restaurants. Really wish there was something similar to this place in Sydney.

Authentic Italian

Great little restaurant, authentic dishes and atmosphere. The Venetian chef knows what he's doing. Excellent quality, varied menu with lots of vegan options to choose from. I recommend the housemade gnocchi and Italian cocktails.

Great for a group or special occasion.

Francesco's have lovely food that's clearly had a lot of care out into it. They now have a full vegan menu so the options are fantastic. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Absolutely lovely staff too!

Delicious food

Took my whole family here for a set menu 3 course vegan dinner and they didn’t realise it was vegan until they realised that I had the same food too. All times that I’ve been, they did take a little while to bring the food out, but it’s good food, so don’t mind the wait.

This place is a must to go, will be pleasantly surprised sat in the courtyard area. Staff are friendly, quirky background music but most importantly the food was very tasty. Will return to try other dishes & recommend my friends.

Pros: Vegan option , Meat option for my family , Selection of wine

Cons: Can’t think of any

Excellent vegan options!

Had the vegan share platter and the vegan lasagna -
Both delicious!
My partner had a meat dish and said next time he’d get the vegan options - would definitely recommend ☺️

So much yum!

Everything is delicious! We've been to Francesco's at Plant 4 many, many times - the vegan lasagna and risotto are a must try - and the eggplant "meat-balls" at Osteria (Torensville)... amazing 😍
