The pizza dough here is beautiful and easily the best in Playa Blanca. Came here twice last year and we're going again tonight after making it our first stop of this holiday. The food is truly excellent and the homemade pasta was a delight. Our little one loves the spaghetti so much he always has the adult portion. Great place,... More

The restaurant ran out of pizza at 8:30, we had pasta which was awful. We left the whole thing and nobody bothered to ask why.

Went for a meal after being here on a previous holiday. Sat inside as the weather wasn't too good and a bit chilly. Had starters and mains but felt that the food wasn't as good as previously. This isn't the cheapest and you can get more for your money at other local restaurants along the old town area. When we... More

We spent a week in Playa Blanca and enjoyed this restaurant so much, we visited it twice. The first time, we sat on the terrace overlooking the bay which was lovely and on the second visit we sat inside and that was also an enjoyable experience. The pizzas and pasta were very good. Even our young son who is an... More

This was a birthday celebration for three people. We chose three different starters to share and they were all very tasty. All three of us opted for steaks; two of us had the Manzo, grilled entrecote with green beans and roast potatoes, and one of us had the Bistecca, grilled entrecote with gorgonzola and chips. They were delicious and the... More

Having been to Playa Blanca many times over the years we never ventured into Casale Franco until Friday. What a fantastic place, service was impeccable, food was equally as impressive. If you are a pizza lover then this is the place and do try the garlic bread. The children loved the food as well. Looking forward to our visit again... More

Just over the road from our hotel and read the reviews so decided to try it out - pretty busy even though it was early and tables reserved so might be advisable to book. Delicious food - we didn't have pizzas but they looked fab! Artisan bread was great. Friendly service - would recommend and would return.

After forgetting about us because we sat outside the service after was excellent.The starters of mushrooms were the big disappointment swimming in oil and not very appetizing. I had pizza after recommendations and it was tasty and above the usual standards. My wife had the pork with Marsala sauce which was excellent apart from the mushrooms again swimming in oil.... More

Tried this restaurant on the reviews on TripAdvisor so were not expecting a glamourous setting, but we found it was not to our taste for a night out. The food was good, as was the service and perhaps had we walked in from the promenade at lunchtime it would have been ok, but we look for more for an evening... More

Frankly the title says it all, we were quickly shown a table and to be fair to the service staff they were happy to accommodate a move inside when the temperature dropped. Unfortunately that's where any element of service ends, waiting 15/20 mins for a menu a further 10 mins for drinks to arrive and we timed it at nearly... 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.
