Had a couple of mix and match dinners of starters and sharing a pizza. Contadino (beetroot roasted in the wood fired oven with smoked cheese, palm honey and walnuts) was the star dish for me. As always all the food tasted wonderfully fresh and made with quality ingredients - a breath of fresh air from some of the more touristy... More

Lovely friendly staff and the food is wonderful. Generous portions and the best pasta I have tasted for a long time. My partner had the tiramisu and raved about it. Complimentary lemoncello at the end was a nice touch.

It is a measure of this establishment that whenever we have an occasion worthy of celebration or are asked for a recommendation of somewhere to dine that we choose Casale Franco. Over many visits... and over several years it has never disappointed.

I'd always been put off from going to Casale Franco as it is located in the Papagayo centre which is a pretty ugly mall. But on reading many positive reviews we gave it a go . We are glad we did . The food ( caprese salad , tagliatelle gamberi , lasagne ) was really good . All the dishes... More

Nice restaurant. Does really good Italian food - great for a special night out. It's right at the top of the Papagayo centre and the food quality was good. Friendly, efficient staff.

I came here two years ago and had two fantastic meals. As I was back in the resort I had to visit again and I can confirm that standards have been maintained. Without a doubt, this is the best restaurant I've been to in Playa Blanca. Well done.

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.
