Simple decor, friendly and efficient staff, enticing smells of freshly baked dough with a hint of basil and a (fairly) straightforward menu- you can’t really go wrong whatever you choose in this cozy Broadway market hotspot. Options range from classics such as tomato, mozzarella and basil to slightly more creative toppings like home cured ham with mozzarella, buffalo ricotta and wild mushrooms. Pair it up with a craft beer or organic lemonade and you are ready for a very tasty experience.
This is everything I’d want in a restaurant. It’s lovely inside, with plenty of light and the great big pizza ovens wafting heat and scent through the restaurant. The pizza itself is as good as everybody says. There isn’t a lot of variety in the toppings, but what they do they do excellently. Think anchovies paired with capers, just the right amount of saltiness and tartness, or spicy sausage or chorizo. The wine is also great, with a short but well-chosen list, all incredibly low prices. You can easily do dinner for two with a pizza each and a shared bottle of wine for around £35, which in that area, and for that quality, is amazing.
Franco Manca never fails to disappoint. There are always a bunch of lively Italians waiters behind this successful chain and a love for Neapolitan style pizza. They are currently in every prominent area in London and expanding. There is probably one near every Londoner by now. The Formula? Keep the price more realistic than most other pizza chains
I have to say, my visit to Franco Manca in London Fields was completely opposite to Valentina. Great service, flawlessly clean restaurant and mouthwatering fluffy pizza!
We found a cockroach in pizza! The dinner with my friends was absolutely disgusting. The staff seemed already prepared for this type of problem. I suggest not going to eat pizza to Franco Manca in Goodge Street - 98 Tottenham Court Road , London! October 2014.
