The elegant, comfortable, airy, and cheerful restaurant is located on a rocky precipice and provides a magnificent view over the sea and along the Amalfi Coast. Owned and operated by the Milano family for nearly 55 years, Franchino has remained consistently dedicated to bringing home-style Central and Southern Italian Cuisine to the greater Amalfi Coast area. Our chefs put old-fashion Italian love and passion in their food preparation. Franchino specializes in home-made pastas and specialty fish dishes, along with a variety of other Italian culinary delights. Whether you're out for an intimate dinner, or want to enjoy a leisurely dinner alone or with friends, the Franchino provides the ambiance you're after. Franchino's restaurant can take care of all your special requests and help you to enjoy your evening. In addition, the friendly service will make you feel welcomed and at home.

We ate here for a romantic meal on a hot night mid-season. From arrival onwards the service and food were both quite excellent. We sat on the terrace with an amazing view of Praiano harbour watching the evening boat movements. Chef welcomed us with amuse bouche which was delicious, and also with a glass of sparkling wine. We then ate fish and shellfish dishes which were beautifully prepared. This really is a very lovely restaurant and a great culinary experience on what is probably the best part of the Amalfi coast.

The location and the view over the bay are fantastic, The food - simply delicious. And when it is served by well mannered, discrete and eager to help personnel, it just makes the evening worth remembering.

What a great restaurant. The seafood was amazing, caught by the locals down in the bay below. We ate as the moon rose above the fading west coast of Italy.
The moonlight glimmered on the placid water below. Breathtaking sight. Worth every penny. Whenever I have a stessful moment, I will think back to this place. Enjoy the moment.

As a first generation Italian-American, a former resident of Italy, a travel professional, and a self-proclaimed "Italo-phile", I have had my share of delectable meals on this amazing peninsula and her islands. I must say that the staff, service, meal and view at Ristorante Franchino are top rate! Truly a heart warming experience. The lovely family who owns and operates this gem of a find, are genuinely passionate about what they do, how they do it and what memories you will be left with upon your departure. There is a sense of pride here that is well demonstrated in the quality of the overall provisions and presentation. Your time and money are valuable, they recognize this fact, and will do whatever needed to completely satisfy your palette and experience. Definitely give Ristorante Franchino a try. Seafood is especially amazingly well done. Buon appetito e, a presto Famiglia Milano! You will definitely be serving me a wonderful meal again! NML
