Out of this world completely authentic Italian pizza. Think Franca Manca but better and more generously portioned with toppings so fresh and unctuous . Franco is the most amazing pizza chef which can be seen by the way in which the pizza comes mounded with...More

Amazing little place hidden up side steps. The pizza is one of the best I've had in years as the base was so tasty. The pasta is cooked perfectly and their home made tomato sauce is beautiful, all fresh. Kids meals are perfect size, fresh...More

It’s hard to imagine as you make your way to this restaurant through the Papagayo Centre that there is going to be a place worthy of five stars within it but there is thankfully. Don't be put off by the drab commercial centre and give...More

Casale Franco never fails to impress. The food service and setting are all fantastic. Frutti de mare is my pick of the menu, simply the best seafood pasta I've eaten in playa Blanca. We love this place and will be back.

Unbelievably good pizza! Wood fired pizzas at their best. Loaded with toppings. Also, from the kids menu, the kids pizzas were also wood fired and loaded with toppings, our 10yo and 6yo loved them! Some of the best pizza I've had. Also, staff were lovely....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.
