About the restaurant RESTAURANT "FRANCHINO"

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.

Lovely outlook from the terrace. Service was friendly. The mixed seafood salad with Amalfi lemon was fresh and delicious. My lemon risotto with shrimp was the highlight. My husbands linguine with scampi was a bit of a let down as there were only 3 scampi and they weren’t as tasty as the one in the salad entree. The sauce was also a bit bland. My lemon ricotta cake was good but the tiramisu was very dense. Our bottle of white Greco was great but the Passito at €10 for the glass was overpriced and nothing like as good as the other Passito’s we’ve tasted. We appreciated the small glass of prosecco and amuse bouche at the beginning.

Beautiful setting right on the edge of the cliff with seamless views of the ocean. Portion size was great with a large range in choice of dishes. Not the best food we tasted in Amalfi but the setting is second to none.

We were welcomed with a glass of Priseco. Our table overlooked the harbor, and it was a lovely setting. The food was fabulous. Great for a romantic night out.

Beautiful setting in the cliffside. It was very dark though. We had several servers; one of them was excellent, the others good. The food was phenomenal. Shrimp and lemon risotto was one of the best things we ate in Italy. Beef carpaccio and fillet were also excellent. Great experience.

Amazing food, portions was quite generous. Seafood was top notch! Taste of the sea! Prices was reasonable considering the seats are right by the cliff overlooking the coast with the sun slowing setting. Our meal was €100 but that's starter, main, dessert and a bottle of wine!!!

My husband and I drove the grueling cliffs from Naples to spend a weekend in the Amalfi Coast and arrived just in time for dinner before checking into Hotel Onda Verde, WoW, what a memorable experience!


Out table overlooked the bay and pristine waters, the cool breeze from the sea helped us to relax from the drive and enjoy our appetizer of a unique presentation of smoked mozzarella that was consumed within seconds preparing us for the rest of the meal.


Seafood was fresh, and the Chefs combination of foods was pleasantly surprising. The views, the reception, and the food quality are worth visiting Ristorante Franchino in the Amalfi Coast!

Fantastic views (!), friendly, very good service and excellent food for our first meal on holiday. We returned for an evening meal on our last evening even though this website showed no availability all week in the evening (?); so always worth checking direct with the restaurant. Highly recommended.

I am usually the person that looks at everyone else s rating and never comments but this place was impeccable. We had to wait for our table so we’re greeted with Prosecco to bide our time. Pasta and fish was very fresh and especially flavorful.

The place hits all the needs you would like with great screnary of ocean, great food and great service.

Will be back.
