Very good food and at reasonable prices. The management clearly are serious about running a very good restaurant. We went two evenings in a row.

Went here by chance and it was so god we went a further twice. The menu is excellent with meat and fish to die for but also the Pizzas are different and substantial and much more unique than your mass produced type.

We decided to come here on our first night due to the reviews. Tucked away and not the most luxurious interior but more than made up for with the food. Shared the garlic and chilli prawns to start, the old man had lasagne and I had the best pizza I have ever had. All food was delicious. Very reasonable prices... More

The wood fired pizzas are amazing, thin bases and fresh, tasty toppings. However this time we opted for something different. After sharing Afetata; mixed italian meats with an assortment of pickles and peppers (really... More

Just along the coastal walk from the Princess Yaiza is a collection of bars, shops and restaurants. We tried Casale Franco. Doesn't look much from the outside but don't be put off. When we arrived it was quiet and we wondered if we'd made the right decision. Our minds were soon put at rest as the place quickly filled up.... More

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.
