Brilliant Italian

Hidden away on top of a not-so-inviting mall, this is actually a superb Italian restaurant – a nice break from the typical Canarian/Spanish fare. The food was excellent and the service friendly; the outdoor seating on the terrace is good.

We visited this restaurant due to the reviews. Lovely view, great bruschetta and garlic bread-both reccomended. My husband and I had arrabiatta, good, but have had better. My daughter had a ham pizza and said it was lovely. We enjoyed our meal, but had to keep trying to get the attention of the waitress. With a few tweaks this could... More

Pizzas are excellent and they prepare awesome fresh saleds too, but save your appetite for the desserts as the Panacotta is to die for !! Great value and very friendly staff ..we will be back...

We ate here a couple of times during our week in Playa Blanca. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The bread at the start of the meal was delicious as was the little liqueur at the end. Would definately recommend this restaurant and the lovely area to sit outside.

Probably the best pizza on the island. I had the one with goats cheese and my friends had the Volcano. Very tasty, straight from the woodfired oven. We also had rice balls to start, the Arancini and Suppli, both were lovely also. Try the white sangria.

I was surprised at how good this restaurant was. It's lovely to look over at the sea and the breeze is just wonderful, especially on a hot day. In particular my calzone, the first time I had tried a calzone as well, was delicious and I had 2 nights in a row because it was that nice. The staff are... More

Yes indeed the restaurant serves up really good authentic pizza, best I have had for a long time. Just a shame about the restaurant location being in a building with a number of British type bars with live entertainment with the singers etc all competing with each other. Surrounds were sadly more like Blackpool without the sun & view.

Enjoyed another delicious meal in Casale Franco last night. Had the sharing platter of starters (croquettes, arrancini & mozzarella, Parmesan + Gorgonzola balls). Mains were handmade ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and a walnut and sage butter sauce along with a smoked goats cheese and pepperoni pizza. Everything was delicious and incredibly fresh and the bottle of Nero D'Avola was reasonably... More
