I love this restaurant! You would never know from the appearance of the Papagayo business centre that it houses the best Italian in Playa Blanca. Indeed one of the advantages of Casale Franco's stunning view is that you can't see the Papagayo centre! The biggest dilemma with Casale Franco is choosing between the marvellous artisan pizzas or the hand made... More

The most amazing tomato garlic bread, the lightest most delicious chicken & pesto pizza ever, free home-made biscuits, great value, great service and great location overlooking the bay. Couldn't believe it wasn't busier as it was soooooo good!!!

We ate here on several nights of our 3 week holiday. Really friendly staff and the pizza is probably the nicest that I have ever tasted, the wood fired pizza oven really does make the difference. I can recommend the Contandino starter of beetroot, goats cheese and palm honey. absolutely gorgeous

We wanted something fairly light to eat and opted for pizza. This place has a great view of the sea and the food was very good. The staff were friendly and the prices were very reasonable. Nothing to grumble about. Would happily recommend it.

This is our third year visiting Casale Franco and yet again it did not disappoint. We probably went 6 times during our stay and every time the food was delicious. The staff are incredibly friendly - recognised us from previous years - and the children enjoyed their special ice creams and stroking the restaurant cats. We can thoroughly recommend the... More

Ate here several times during our two week stay and were never disappointed. Staff really nice, food tasty and generous and view lovely. Only 'found' this due to trip advisor - been to playa blanca before and must have walked right past - well worth finding.
