Franco Manca Review!

Perry and I have always wanted to try out Franca manca for dinner, because of its delicious pizzas, but whenever we try to go... There is either a huge line or it is full up!  (It's always a great sign, because you know it's a successful restaurant!)  However the other day by some miracle we managed to get a table and took full advantage of the situation.

We decided to choose the freshly made lemonade, because it sounded so delicious.... And do you know what?  It really was!  It was the most refreshing drink to have on such a sunny day!

For our starter we chose the Brisola (cured beef) and buffalo mozzarella salad with garlic and cheese bread on the side.  It was presented so beautifully on a wooden block... I didn't want to ruin it, but my hunger kicked in and we both polished our plates!

For our pizzas, we opted for different flavours.  Perry went for the tomato, cured chorizo and mozzarella pizza.  I on the other hand chose the wild broccoli, mozzarella and Gloucester old spot sausage pizza.  Both of our pizzas were so delicious and the crusts were so flavoursome!  At only £6 a pizza, this place is incredibly reasonable and the portion size is amazing!

The pizzas are made from slow-rising sour dough (minimum 20 hours) and are baked in a wood burning brick oven.  This oven helps to lock in the flour's natural aroma and moisture, giving a soft and easily digestible crust.  Therefore the crust or the (cornicione) is excellent and should not be discarded!

Franco Manca certainly exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be returning sometime soon!
