    Our 3rd visit (twice in 2018) reminded us of the reasons we returned: beautiful setting overlooking beach, cliffs, and sea; cool breeze with overhang sheltered from hot sun; warm hospitality, patient recommendations, and professional service from our waiter make Franchino a “must visit” for Amalfi coast guests. And I haven’t yet mentioned the food! From the antipasti to main courses, to dolce, to the espresso, each serving rewarded our tastebuds. Why not see for yourself?

    It is an incredible location, the view is unique in that there is raw cliff side everywhere which is neat and different from Positano. The outside seating is visually better, but if it’s cold and windy it is hard to sit outside. The food is mostly seafood, it was very good. The only retractor was playing Nora Jones cd on repeat (2.5 hours) and the slow service.

    Really lovely place, very romantic dinner. Great views, great food, great service. Staff went out of their way to be friendly, happy, explain the menus, offer recommendations. Food was beautifully plated. Not inexpensive, but what do you expect. If you want an upscale dinner in Praiano, this is great.

    This restaurant was absolutely superb. I went with a group of 4 and enjoyed antipasti and 1 & 2 courses and a few bottle of wine, the view of the coast was incredible and the our server was beyond excellent also. Too bad I did not get his name but I'm sure any staff is great. The food was so exquisite and satisfying, I would definitely return here and recommend it to everyone.

    Amazing view, really really good food. We are small eaters and hence didn't get starters but got mains, desserts and a lot of drinks. Felt that staff were not happy that we didn't get starters which is why it's a 9.5 and not a 10.

    The menu is quite short but offers considerable variety. We found dishes that were very tasty and well presented. Portions are on the small side but the quality of the ingredients was excellent. The location of the restaurant, nestled on the cliff side, offers great views of the bay and coastline. The staff were helpful and friendly. The on line menus were frustrating at first as we could not get an adequate signal. Use of the hotel wifi solved the problem.

About the restaurant

We can't choose who we fall in love with, it just happens.

The restaurant "Franchino" welcomes his guests on an incredibly evocative terrace, overhanging on the water, facing the cape of Conca dei Marini.

Each morning, smartly presented waiters swiftly yet silently prepare the terrace's tables for lunch, and again in the afternoon, for dinner. This daily ritual means you may experience mesmerising Mediterranean specialities while enjoying the cool breeze from the same mountains, slopes and waters that, just days or hours earlier, surrendered their bounty for your meal.

Floor-to-ceiling windows let the light and the landscape into our restaurant, enhancing the exquisite presentation of pure, fresh ingredients on every plate.

After a morning on the beach, what could be more pleasant than a delicious lunch to be enjoyed here, in the sunshine or beneath a shady pergola, in the company of a loved one, and with breathtaking views of the sea of the Amalfi Coast.

In the evening, as the sun sets, the terrace of the Franchino 's Restaurant transforms into one of the most romantic places in the world.

The cuisine served at the Restaurant Franchino offers visitors to the Amalfi Coast the perfect introduction to the local culinary tradition and the genuine flavours of the Mediterranean.

Imagine dining at sunset or under the moonlight and stars while listening to the Mediterranean 's wave sing in concert with the quiet background music that flows from our restaurant. 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. The restaurant is easily accessible from the parking by modern elevator or by stairs.

Owned and operated by the Milano family for nearly 40 years, the Restaurant "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.

The Restaurant Franchino specializes in home-made pastas and specialty fish dishes, along with a variety of other Italian culinary delights. Our fruits, lemons, tomatoes and spices are harvested from our family garden. Your senses for sight, taste and smell will come alive when you are dining with us at the Restaurant Franchino.
