Simply the best pizza you’ll ever taste. You can tell they use the best ingredients and care about the food they bring out. Great service, and very friendly staff - a must for those staying in Playa Blanca.

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.
