Hands down amazing food. Great staff and beautiful Italian food. Really good price for the quality you're getting. Pizza is best you'll get around - a welcome break to the standard issue Italian you'd come to expect. Staff are only class as well. Two enthusiastic...More

Excellent and friendly service, delicious pizzas, good value for money. Menu pizza / pasta based, we had pizzas but the sharing boards also sounded delicious. Nice little kids menu too. Definitely worth a visit!

I'm a man that loves a good pizza. This one though, easily the best. The dough was incredible. It tasted very fresh and was so fluffy! We will be back before our week here is up.

A friend and his son who are both gluten intolerant have eaten in Casale Franco in the past - I think they just explained their requirements when discussing the menu and ordering.
will you deliver to PLAYA LIMONES in Playa Blanca? how do we order?

Yes. Franco is the chef and can cook anything. If you let them know in advance that would probably be best as you could discuss options. Don't worry they will look after you.

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.
