    Great food, views and service - what more could you want! We were seated about 20 minutes before sunset and ate as the sun went down so it was great to see the contrast between the two settings

    Everything we enjoyed was amazing! The service, ambiance, and every dish was simply perfection. You MUST visit if you’re on the island because there’s nothing like it! Sit on the terrace, the view is spectacular!

    Food was excellent. Service was adequate but not warm from the waiter. Music was not the best.

    Great views - food was average and service was very good, although slow at times. Definitely a decent choice if on the west side of Praiano - prices were also borderline high.

    The best dessert we've had on the Amalfi Coast! The food was great with large portions, and the prices are fair. A must if you're looking for a restaurant in Praiano!

    The food is delicious, especially the risotto with gamberetti and lemon, the octopus antipasto and the pistachio mousse. The ravioli with lagoustine sauce could have less butter for my personal taste. The glass of prosecco and amuse-bouche are a great welcome gesture.

    This little restaurant was a great find. The views were incredible, a real romantic atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and the service was brilliant. Despite this, the food was average. This may be due to personal taste however. Saying that, the champagne and canapé to begin was a nice touch and the wine was good.

    Fantastic restaurant with an excellent view. While staying in Praiano we ate at FRANCHINO to celebrate my sons 14th birthday. The staff was welcoming and accommodating to special food requests. They sang Happy Birthday and made it a memorable dinner for our family. The lobster special was amazing.

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.
