About Franco Manca Aldwych
Well-situated within central London, this pizzeria has got it all. The top of the street runs from Russell Street to Aldwych Street, and is only minutes away from the Strand and walking distance to Covent Garden. Being located in the West End, there are loads of great theatres around, such as the Duchess and Novella, as well as some stunning hotels. Franco Manca is the perfect pre-show dinner or pit stop for fuelling up before heading out to explore the city and everything it has to offer.
You can check out the Royal Courts of Justice, Roman Baths, and Somerset House, which are all nearby. There really is no shortage of activities and sights to see in this superb location. The pizzeria is just down the road from Waterloo Bridge, and the closest tube station stop is Temple while, Covent Garden underground station isn’t too far.
While the location is amazing, the pizza is even better. The sourdough is the main calling point, and you will quickly realize why the chef’s put so much effort into making it. Fresh batches are made each day to be proved for 20 hours, and baked in special Naples-style pizza ovens. The toppings beautifully complement the base, with a fantastic range of cured meats, cheeses, and vegetables to choose from. The pizza menu entails seven stunning options or you can check out the blackboard for the daily specials. If you fancy, you can get extra toppings too. The wines are Italian and the beers support local breweries, while the desserts feature traditional classics such as tiramisu.
The interior is bright and modern, with pops of coloured tiled accented the wooden features and exposed red brick walls. You can also book a private area downstairs for meetings or parties accommodating groups of 50 or more.
