Went last week, booked a table but on arrival waited for 5 minutes before anyone came over to us, lots of empty tables but had to wait again before being seated. We ordered a pizza each, very disappointing, mine went cold after a few minutes, it was a case of spot the toppings - must be living in their reputation.... More

Really gorgeous food and wine. We were so impressed with the gluten free pizza especially. If you weren't told, youd be hard-pressed to even notice it was gf. Fab!!

Passed this place on my walk to the bus and saw the awards. Convinced three friends to join me for dinner on a Friday night--be warned, make a reservation ahead of time! Since we were there at 6pm (relatively early) we secured their only non-reserved table. We split three pizzas between the four of us and it was perfectly portioned.... More

Visited and the food was lovely but we arrived at half seven, told we had to vacate at 9. No problem but there were lots of empty tables which never filled. I asked at the end and she said no your fine (this was ten past nine). I just don't understand the reasoning behind this ? Wine wasn't chilled ,... More

We went here for dinner on a recent ramble around. The restaurant has a good atmosphere with friendly service staff. The pizza chef is on display which adds interest to the meal experience. Overall the food was good, although I have eaten better pizza for less expense. Would not be in a rush to return but it was a good... More

It can be hard to get a table you need to book but that's because this little gem is so good. Very good menu with plenty of variety. Generous portions of authentic Italian deliciousness. Lovely friendly, cosy atmosphere with attentive and helpful staff. Going back next week!!

Not a bad restaurant but you can't share a pizza!! We wanted to order 2 starters and share a pizza (they are large) only to be told that they didn't allow anyone to share a pizza in their restaurant. This was despite the fact that our 2 starters and 1 pizza order meant that we were spending more money than... More

I have to say Manifesto is a real good place to go out for an Italian dinner... it's very small and you need to book to get a table but the pizza is really good. Really Italian flavor! I think manifesto is good, staff is professional and thy have a real Italian pizza. Drawbacks? Not that many.. price to expensive... More

Excellent pizza - really tasty. Prawn starter a bit fussy and pricey. Glass of wine pricey too, but would be back for the pizza, definitely.
