Great food, beautiful views and wonderful staff in a very nice family hotel setting. The meat and fish is recommended as are the wines. Will go there again

The fish was delicious, service was great, view was amazing even if we were sitting inside. Small thing - we arrived without reservation, and we were informed there were no tables left, but looking at empty inside, I asked if it was possible to get a table inside, and it was, the server just assumed we only would accept outside table. Anyway it was worth asking, we were able to enjoy delicious meals, starters, and very good local wine.

We dined at Franchino during our travels in the Amalfi coast and were not disappointed - STUNNING view overlooking the ocean (this night happened to be a full moon), and amazing food. We ordered the mix raw seafood selection & beef tartara to start. For our main we got the spaghetti with claims & Candele pasta with Genovese sauce (AMAZING). Our waiter was also very kind and helpful with navigating the menu, and answering any questions we had. He also helped us find an after dinner drinks spot, located a few levels below on the ocean, which was a great way to end the evening. Overall we had a wonderful dinner and suggest going - thank you!

Me and my wife have eaten here on a few occasions on our past visits and it's allways been superb , unfortunately last week when we went it didn't live up to past standards ,there didn't seem to be a lead waiter so service was very slow ,both our mains were a disappointment ,I had the seared tuna on a bed of wilted greens ,the greens were luke warm at best and the tuna had bean seared and left so it made all the dish cool as we had been waiting 45 minutes from starter to main I'd lost the will to live so didn't send it back My wife had a fillet of steak with cubed potatoes same again steak good but potatoes cold .we think the dishes had been prepared then left on the side to long . On the terrace there needs to be some additional lighting to supliment the candle lights on the tables when it goes dark you do struggle to see your meal .if it was a cheap place you could forgive but it's a 130 euro meal for two with a bottle of wine .

When we arrived at the restaurant it was clear they were not expecting us despite having booked two days in advance. We were then left sitting at the table without being offered a drink of any description before I had to ask. The food was good without being exceptional and service did improve until midway through the meal when we were asked to move tables to accommodate a big party. This seems to be a restaurant designed for the hotel residents and not for visiting guests. There is better value and service to be had elsewhere in the region.

To start the setting was lovely, we were staying nearby and this restaurant looked amazing so thought we would try it. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our table, we had been looking forward to this meal all week. The service was slow and we were often overlooked. We asked for tap water and were given bottled water (only a small amount each was poured then the bottle taken) when we asked for more water they got another bottle and then charged us for 2 when we hadn’t even had 1. The wine on offer was poor compared to other local wines offered at other restaurants and was twice the price! As for the food unfortunately we were all sadly disappointed. All of it lacked any flavour. I had pasta with clams which was terrible, dry pasta with about 5 clams and some flavourless butter at the bottom of my bowl. It was edible but that’s it. My husband had this as a main and was also sadly disappointed. I had steak as a main which was cooked well the sauce was great that’s where it ends the coconut rice ball that was the accompaniment taste like a sweet rice pudding and didn’t pair well with steak. The rest of our party were also all disappointed with their food and seemed it overpriced and flavourless. There are much nicer places to eat nearby with equally fantastic views for a lot less money! Don’t bother wasting your money here.

The experience was excellent in every aspect. We sat outside and the stunning view contributed to a lovely evening. I appreciated the broad wine selection as it encompassed mostly local products. The staff was visibly experienced and we enjoyed an extensive wine tasting. We ended up choosing an Amalfi coast's rosé to accompany the clams spaghetti and the black Tortello which I highly recommend. Attentive and receptive staff. Overall, a genuine and authentic experience.

The views are magnificent, and the ambiance is incredibly relaxed, with super attentive service that makes everything seem easy. The food is as authentic Amalfi as it gets, fresh, delicious. Octopus and Calamari were out of this world. The wine list is also great, but the best selections are the local ones (try Furore DOC white). On top of everything, this is not an expensive restaurant. If we lived here, we would be regulars.

Our experience at Ristorante Franchino was the perfect finale to our Italian culinary journey! As it was our last meal in Italy, we wanted something memorable, and Ristorante Franchino delivered beyond expectations. From the warm welcome to the impeccable service, every moment was a delight. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our family, even crafting a special dish for our kids that wasn't on the menu, showcasing their flexibility and commitment to guest satisfaction. The meal itself was a symphony of flavors, each dish carefully prepared and bursting with authentic Italian taste. The ambiance was charming, creating a cozy atmosphere where we could savor every bite and create lasting memories. Ristorante Franchino truly embodies the essence of Italian hospitality, and we are grateful to have experienced it. Grazie mille for a remarkable dining experience!

Since we stayed at Hotel Onda Verde (the hotel attached to this restaurant!) we knew we needed to make a reservation here. We we were not disappointed— everything was so fresh, beautifully prepared, and so unique. It was distinctly different than a lot of the seafood meals we have had while in Italy, and we really appreciated that! Also had an amazing glass of wine and an INCREDIBLE carrot cake with gelato on top for dessert — sorry we dont have a photo because we devoured it too fast. We love all the staff here as well, they are all very friendly and helpful!

You do not want to miss this spot. Forget Positano, you will not find a more magical place to have dinner and take in the true Amalfi Coast experience. Get there before dark and ask for a table outside. The food was incredible along with the service and ambiance. One of the most romantic places you will ever experience!

The food was below average. We visited the place due to the many good reviews, so either our scandinavian standards are too high otherwise people have bad taste. The food did not taste fresh, lacked flavour and the bread tasted like it had been baked in Mordor for a thousand years. We ended spending 130 euros for a dinner for two - WITHOUT dessert and without alhohol. The view is great, but the food is definitely not worth it.

I have to say this was our family’s favourite restaurant in Praiano. We went to many other beautiful restaurants whilst here too but this was a step above the rest. We sat on the balcony… which is a must at this restaurant as the views are incredible! The service was perfect and they catered to my son’s peanut allergy with no problems. The food was expensive but compared to other restaurants in Praiano suprisingly very reasonable. The food was unbeatable. Standout for us were the deserts….all of them were so delicately presented and just melted in your mouth….the chocolate hazelnut wheel was the standout for us. You just have to try this restaurant when on the Amalfi Coast…. It won’t disappoint!! And the wait staff even let us shoot up a lift in their restaurant to return home and skip all the stairs as my son was sleepy when we left…. Big win! Loved this place and it made our whole stay in Praiano. 😊

We visited this restaurant twice on a 3 day trip to the Amalfi Coast, plus had breakfast there each day. The food is fantastic. Lots of fresh ingredients prepared with care. The blending of flavors was excellent in every dish we tried. The chef is to be commended! We tried local wines while we were there, and enjoyed them all. We are so sad that we didn’t bring home any of the Greco di Tufa! The view is fantastic. We were lucky to be able to eat outside on the verandas overlooking the sea. So romantic! And last, but certainly not least, the staff is outstanding! I wish I’d gotten all their names as they were universally great. But a special shout out to Tomas, who was our primary waiter. He gave us great recommendations, went along with my fledgling Italian, and made us feel so welcomed. He is a wonderful young man, and a credit to Franchinos. We highly recommend this restaurant, and can’t wait to go back.

We came here twice on our vacation ( it was that good). We own a restaurant on cape cod and are total foodies. We loved the pastas, the secondi, the cocktails, the desserts, the view and atmosphere and the service. This is now our #1 recommendation in the entire Amalfi coast. We will be back in Oct!
