SquareMeal Review of Franco Manca Northcote

Since opening in 2008, this miniature artisan enterprise has built a cult following – thanks to the quality of its wood-fired sourdough pizzas, which are cooked in a special Tufac brick oven imported from Naples. Locals are attracted by the rock-bottom prices and meticulously sourced ingredients, so it’s no wonder that queues form around the block for a taste of Franco’s delicious offerings. Just six different versions are available, topped with various combinations of tomatoes (imported from Salerno), Gloucester Old Spot ham, sausages from Brindisa, organic mozzarella and ricotta produced at Alham Wood in Somerset, fresh herbs, mushrooms and the like. Charcuterie platters and panuozzi (flame-baked bread with various toppings) play a supporting role, while drinks range from a pair of Piedmontese organic wines (red or white) to Sam Smith’s organic blond beer.

Franco Manca's is the place to go if you want cheap, good quality food and drink. This place is undercharging massively for the quality and service you receive. It's a very in/out sort of place; once you've eaten you're out, it's not a hanging around all night kind of place, but it doesn't need or want to be. With only a small choice of pizzas to choose from, you are not overfaced or overwhelmed. The way the pizzas are cooked in a stone baked oven is just perfection – you feel like you could be in Italy.
