“Amazing Pizza! ”

Franco Manca Brighton
Ranked #96 of 1,254 Restaurants in Brighton
Certificate of Excellence
Description: The pizza is made from slow-rising sourdough (minimum 20 hours) and is baked in a wood burning 'Tufae' brick oven made on site by specialised artisans from Naples. This oven produces a heat of about 500c (930f). The slow levitation and blast-cooking process lock in the flour's natural aroma and moisture giving a soft, easily digestible crust. As a result, the edge (cornicione) is excellent and shouldn't be discarded.

I was advised to visit here by a couple of Sicilian fellas I know who own there own shop selling food and gelato etc so I thought if they say it’s good it must be and oh my word it’s amazing one of the best pizzas you will ever eat anywhere in the world in my opinion well worth coming here! It’s great!

If you are a thin pizza lover, this placeis for you. All fresh ingredients, not much veriaty in the menu, but they are flexible. We asked for additional ingredients in ours, and they add it without any problems. Also, nice cider and homemade lemonade. We strongly recommend, and we will definitely be back!

Authentic italian pizza! Great for a quick, cheap dinner. I often get the cheeseless pizza which is an excellent vegan option; just add chilli and garlic oil

On the web sight it stated there were gluten free options. If you call a SALAD a gluten free option you are in luck.

There are other restaurants that happy offer gluten free pizza.

There were no wine glasses, wine is served in water tumblers
Also prosecco was served in a tumbler not good enough

Way to rustic

The menu was so limited did not really require a menu

Apologies no olives really no olives in an Italian restaurant

Had dessert disaster tiny portions
Tiramisu had never been near Italy
It was just cream with lady fingers that were hard as had not been soaked in coffee.

£70 bill rip off

I really was looking forward to visiting this establishment unfortunately not up to standard.
I will happily take my business to ask or pizza express
They have wine glasses
