Wow, what a great wood fired pizza. Homemade rustic pizza with a wide choice of amazing toppings. Great service and great ambiance. I would also highly recommend the sharing antipasti.

We arrived outside and the lady waitress saw us, we walked up the steps so clearly we were after a table but she just totally ignored us. Once she did finally acknowledge us and seat us she was so moody and seemed like we were putting her out! It took ages for her to come back and take our order,... More

A family-run restaurant serving excellent wood-fired sourdough pizzas. We ate here regularly on our recent holiday and were never disappointed. I particularly liked the beetroot & cheese starter! We will be back next year!

Outstanding freshly cooked good Italian food, superb pizzas and freshly baked bread in the wood burning oven. The home made lasagne was as good as it ever gets! If Dean Martin was alive and living in Lanzarote this is where he would eat. He may not have been to keen on the modern jazz music but at least it was... More

The regulars on the Playa Blanca Tripadvisor Forum have been singing the praises of Casale Franco for years and despite this being my fifth holiday in Playa Blanca, I had never previously got around to dining here. So this holiday I was determined to give it a try and I'm so glad I did. The restaurant has a very modern... More

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.
