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.

During our visits to Casale Franco over the past few years we have enjoyed many great meals. Almost every other review of this restaurant refers to its various qualities - including the food, the staff, the atmosphere and the views. We can vouch for the high quality of everything on the menu that we've tried - the pizzas, pastas, fish/meat... More

We went there twice when we were in Playa Blanca and our kids ate their on a third night. The boys loved the staff, who treated them like kings and we appreciated the great service. Don't... More

We love to eat at this restaurant because the welcome is great and the food so authentic and home made. We usually get two different pizzas and do a bit of sharing because the flavours are so good. When they have it, the aubergine parmiggiano is out of this world - delicious. The restaurant is a bit of an effort... More

What a gem. Don't let the outside building put you off. The best food we've had in 3 years of visiting the area. Lovely owners who are shy about telling the world how good they are. Best of luck to them

Luckily this Italian restuarant was only 5 minutes walk away from our hotel I say luckily as the three course meal plus coffee was so filling I am not sure we could have walked for much longer. Homemade pumpkin ravioli with walnut sauce and grilled polenta in a fresh mushroom sauce were fantastic the pizza was made fresh to order... More

We, 2 adults and 2 teenagers loved this restaurant last January and came back hoping for the best. We have been coming to playa Blanca for 8 years twice a year and it very hard to find good food.
