So, the setting has changed but the food quality hasn’t. I had pizza, my wife had pork. Both were wonderful. This is a food lovers restaurant.

The pizza here is incredible. The crust is fluffy, hot and delicious. The caramelized. onions were so, so good. I think what makes this place stand apart is the quality of their ingredients. Highly recommend trying this restaurant!

Not our first visit here and as before we weren’t disappointed. We chose our starters, 2 different sharing platters which were absolutely delicious. 3 of us had pizza - the dough is so soft and pillowy, light with the freshest of toppings - mouthwatering I...More

Bus is the best option for going into town from your location - you can choose where you want to get off and walk to Casale Franco (which is consistently good). I'd suggest a taxi back which will probably be around €5

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.

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.
