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.

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.

Only comment was the drawing of the plastic wind breaker (window shade). I wish it were open. Food and service were very good and price for what we paid was reasonable in our judgement.

The restaurant is in a breathtaking location overlooking the coast. The service was excellent and the food extremely good. For the two of us, each having a starter, main course, dessert, a nice bottle of wine plus aperatifs and digestifs, the whole bill came to €150, very good value. I would definitely recommend this place for date night.

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.
