Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

Enjoy the delicious cuisine and warm hospitality of Italy at this vibrant pizzeria!

Passionate in serving up authentic pizza with flavour and flair, Pizzeria da Francesca have brought their home-style Italian cooking to Dunedin’s dining scene. Famous for their crispy crusts and fresh toppings, this eatery is locally-known for one of the best pizzas in town. From vegetarian feasts of mushroom, mozzarella and black truffle oil, to a carnivorous pizza with venison pepperoni, red onion and chilli oil, there’s something everyone will love on their menu. Gluten-free bases are also available.

Hand-picking only the freshest produce from local artisan suppliers, and using Italian-imported ingredients, their chefs can recreate some of their country’s favourite slices. Enjoy small plates of traditional antipasti to start (the polenta fries are to die for), as well as a fantastic selection of New Zealand and international wines, craft beers and spirits.

With a vibrant atmosphere and friendly service, Pizzeria da Francesca is the perfect choice for dinner in Dunedin.

We had a lovely time at this restaurant! The restaurant itself is in an excellent location and we were greeted by a lovely waiter who was polite and very helpful! Great food, and you can see the pizzas made right in front of you! All four of us enjoyed our meals and would most definitely return here.

Cozy comfortable restaurant. Not many big tables so best to book if going as a big group.

Delicious food. Highly recommend the garlic bread (pizza type base) & Nutella & strawberry pizza.

The food was delicious! The most simple delicious ingredients. The waiter was fantastic, even though he was busy with the other tables he was so on the ball with checking on us. We loved the fact we could sit and watch our food being made and cooked! Such a great experience overall. We will be back :D

The waiter who served us was so lovely and enthusiastic! The Italian juices are delicious and the pizzas were amazing! Highly recommend the Pepperoni pizza, the sliced potatoes on top added an element of surprise but the texture and taste compliments the rest of the pizza so well. The pizza sauces were also very unique and great. The only thing we would’ve liked to be different was to have the prosciutto raw and not cooked. But overall and awesome experience and great ambience!!

Initially a bit surprised with the narrow corridor dining space and small table for 6 we were so thrilled with the qualtiy, timeliness and friendliness of the maitre d' that we had a truly memorable time. The food was outstanding and quick to arrive. The atmosphere is cosy and clean. It was neat being able to see the food prpeared too. We can't wait to come back. Really, really great food.

The restaurant is small but cozy. Very professional equipments. We ordered the Italian peach juice, which is not a common drink found in most restaurants. Thin crust pizza with Plenty of cheese and topping. Like the vegetarian pizza the best personally. Looking forward to go there again.

The staff were beyond lovely, and made our time really enjoyable.
The food was amazing, and they were so welcoming to our vegan dietary needs - didn't charge anything extra for the wonderful vegan cheese!

Nice atmosphere, lovely tasty food. The waiter was helpful when we told him we were lactose intolerant - advising that they could use dairy free cheese that I didn’t see listed on the menu. The pizza was delicious and just the right amount of food.

Also discovered they do little pizzas so I may pop in for lunch one day too.

Great pizza and salad, and an extensive wine list. We really enjoyed our meal. The tables are quite small but staff were very accommodating in putting two together so that our party of four could all sit at the same table. Will definitely return.

We arrived early for a drink and were greeted by a warm, cosy atmosphere and inviting staff. We sat by the fire in the front alcove and shared pizzas and polenta fries and were delighted by how delicious everything was! Great way to celebrate a family birthday. The food was delicious and well priced and we had leftover to take home. Will definitely be back :)
