If you only dine out once in Playa Blanca make sure it's here. We visited a good number of restaurants during our 4 week winter break and this was the best of the lot, a pity we only started to eat there during the final week. But we did go 3 times, and each time the food and service were... More

Lovely friendly staff. Good as ever. Wood fired oven, home baked breads and dough. Fantastic pizzas. We've been coming here for years and it's still our favourite family place to eat in Playa Blanca. It's hard to find a restaurant in Playa Blanca that is consistently good. Casale Franco is one you can bank on.

Even though I wasn't expecting a lot of hospitality, this restaurant gave us a lot! My husband is Italian but pizza like this he never ate, amazing taste and very good quality at decent prices.

Had a couple of mix and match dinners of starters and sharing a pizza. Contadino (beetroot roasted in the wood fired oven with smoked cheese, palm honey and walnuts) was the star dish for me. As always all the food tasted wonderfully fresh and made with quality ingredients - a breath of fresh air from some of the more touristy... More

Lovely friendly staff and the food is wonderful. Generous portions and the best pasta I have tasted for a long time. My partner had the tiramisu and raved about it. Complimentary lemoncello at the end was a nice touch.

It is a measure of this establishment that whenever we have an occasion worthy of celebration or are asked for a recommendation of somewhere to dine that we choose Casale Franco. Over many visits... and over several years it has never disappointed.

A new venture from the same team that ran one of London's iconic Italian restaurants.Boasting Lanzarote's only wood-fired oven you can enjoy a variety of home-made Artisan breads, Pizzas, as well as wood-roasted meats and vegetables. We also make our own fresh pasta daily, and have a wide selection of home-made desserts. Our beautiful terrace has some of the best sea-views that Playa Blanca has to offer, and together with spectacular sunsets, and a chilled candlelit ambiance, it is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your evening.
