Always visit this Italian at least twice during our stay in Playa Blanca. Amazing food, great staff and very generous portions. The garlic & rosemary potatoes and the tiramisu are a must.

IF YOU WOULD ENJOY LISTENING TO AN EXTREMELY ARROGANT AND RUDE CHEF/OWNER SHOUTING COMMANDS TO AND BELITTLING STAFF IN FRONT OF A FULL RESTAURANT, WITH NO REGARD TO THE CUSTOMERS DINING AND DISRUPTION TO THEIR EVENING, THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU !!! Sometimes chefs become so full of their self importance that they think any behaviour is acceptable,... More

Good restaurant with pasta and pizza. Location wise it is located in a run down shopping centre, but the restaurant is located on the top with a view towards the sea. The atmosphere at the restaurant was very good. So was the food, though not splendid.

Eaten at Casale Franco's many times since we discovered it a couple of years ago. Excellent food, wonderful family run business and courteous staff, never had a bad meal there. Can't wait to visit when we are back in Lanzarote

My husband and I visited here last week, we were lucky to get a table as it was full ....the pizzas are the best I've ever tasted, the ambiance is stunning. And the service was very friendly. We liked it that much we went back on the last night of our holiday !! Thank you to all the staff 👌🏻😀

Looking for somewhere to eat and we came across this place setback from the front. We both had pizza and were very happy with them although Her Indoors' spicy chorizo chilli number was spicy. Service very friendly and efficient and well worth worth a visit if you are looking for a pizza. The pizza on mine could have been a... More

Having visited Playa Blanca for many years,we decided to eat at Franco for the first time. It took an age for anyone to take our order and when the food came it was very disappointing. My husband's steak was almost raw when he asked for medium rare. His roast potatoes were burnt and his veg barely cooked. My salmon was... More

We ate here on the 30th December, I would like to warn you all of our terrifying ordeal and experience. Which only resulted from us politely asking for one of our main meals to be heated up, which the waitress agreed with us. She even said before we did "Do you need this hotter". What followed can only be described... More

Last night we went to Casale Franco and it was great! It has everything you would want in a restaurant here. Enviable location right on the sea front, warm welcome from friendly staff and I know it's an odd observation but everything is really clean and tidy. The decor is arty and different, we really liked it. The owners did... More

Unless you know exactly where the restaurant is it is tricky to find in the mall it is located and bizarrely the door from the terrace doesn't have a door handle outside so you can't get in unless someone opens it from the inside! It was over Christmas so the terrace far too cold to sit in and even the... More

Description
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.
