A new addition to the restaurant portfolio of the city of Hull, Francesca’s Cucina Italiana brings fresh and authentic Italian flavours to the north of England. Located along the main Beverley Road in Hull, one of the busiest thoroughfares in the city as far as dining is concerned, this delightful Italian eatery is already proving to be a big hit, thanks to its superb menu and affordable prices.
The menu covers all of the main dishes expected from an Italian restaurant from home cooked pasta to handmade pizza and tasty risottos to a variety of meat and fish dishes. Well worth a mention is the lovely Francesca Risotto which comes with chicken, tiger prawns and pepperoni in a creamy tomato sauce whilst the house pizza, also named the Francesca, is an absolute winner topped with goat’s cheese, sweet peppers, chilli, spinach, tomato and mozzarella. As for the mains, the Valdostana chicken with prosciutto ham, mozzarella and Napoli sauce is superb, served with homemade chips and the grilled seabass wrapped in Parma ham on a bed of saffron and spinach risotto is sublime.
Housed in an imposing Gothic style building, Francesca’s Cucina Italiana stands out along the street and is well worth a visit. Trendy rustic style interiors create just the right vibe with cool wooden bench style tables and a well-stocked bar serving a wide range of Italian wines, beers and spirits.
Clearly passionate about serving the very best in Italian cuisine, this lovely restaurant is fast gaining a loyal legion of regular customers and it’s easy to see why.
