We didn't have high hopes for this place - it's set amongst a sea of depressingly "British-themed" pubs and restaurants overlooking Dorada beach. We passed a place that boasted the "best Sunday roast" and thought this restaurant would be another tourist trap serving food catering...More

My partner and I ate here during our holiday to Playa Blanca and we loved it. The pizza bread to share was so amazing and tasted incredible. We had the pasta for main course, I had ravioli and my partner had tomato and chilli based...More

Our 5th night in playa Blanca and this was the first meal that we were both satisfied with. The only gripe we had was that the goats cheese starter was definitely not goats cheese, a different type of cheese instead. Lovely menu. Plenty of choices....More

Had an excellent pizza here. Wish they'd replace their front wall with a glass partition so you could see the sea when sitting eating.

Don't be put off by the cheap looking bars nearby, this is a great restaurant and the terrace overlooking the sea makes you feel far away from the other things around it. Really delicious pizzas, all wood fired. Service is great - it is a...More

Easily the best Italian in Playa Blanca! It's a must go to restaurant for us every time we come to Lanzarote!

We had a seat on the very front of the balcony overlooking the beach and marina which was excellent. The pizza was amazing and would 100% recommend.

Came here with 4 adults and 4 kids. All had the pizza which was amazing, one of the best I've ever had. Staff were friendly, view is good out to sea (although would be better with glass at the front rather than a wall)

We both had the pizza, is was incredible from a woodfired oven, the dough was possibly sourdough or something - it was delicious anyway. The service was also very good, it wasn't that busy we went though so everything was quick for us. Would definitely...More

Bus is the best option for going into town from your location - you can choose where you want to get off and walk to Casale Franco (which is consistently good). I'd suggest a taxi back which will probably be around €5

A friend and his son who are both gluten intolerant have eaten in Casale Franco in the past - I think they just explained their requirements when discussing the menu and ordering.

Description
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.
