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.

Visited here on a recent trip to Lanzarote and the food was lovely. I had king prawns with chilli and my sister had Lasagne and we were delighted with both dishes. I would certainly return to this restaurant and would not fail to recommend to others.

Read other reviews so decided to give it a go, and was not disappointed. Franco, originally from Lecce, has a real wood fired oven, and the difference it makes is unbelievable. As well as pizza, he also bakes his own handmade artisan bread in it. There are about a dozen different pizzas available, as well as a conventional menu, with... More

The Casale Franco is in Centro Comercial Papagayo, above Burger King. You have to walk around the right hand side and up some stairs (looking from the sea) to get to it. It's only open in the evenings and at 8pm on a Friday evening in January it was possible to walk in without a reservation - might be a... More

We found it strange being in Spain and finding that Playa Blanca had so many Italian restaurants. However, this must rate as one of the better ones with lovely food served by nice people - what more can you look for. The location is rather odd - next to Burger King in a run down shopping centre but don't let... More

What can I say.... This Italian is the best. I dined here at least 4 times this holiday and every meal was beautiful. From the service to the superb food, you will not be disappointed. If you want home made Italian food prepared by someone who has a passion for cooking you must visit. Wood fired pizza, home made pasta... More

Staff friendly and helpful, décor a cut above, even the music is better than most . . . but! The food just didn't do it for us. The aubergine parmigiana lacked aubergine and tomato and included some unidentified ingredients not to my wife's liking. The spaghetti carbonara was better but I prefer my own version! The home cooked breads were... More
