About Franco Manca Chiswick

Right on the high street, this pizzeria is well located and easy to get to from Turnham Green station. Having been the second ever Franco Manca restaurant to open in the UK after the original Brixton branch, this one is quite special. The restaurant is surrounded by great cafes and bars, as well as Chiswick common and Tabard Theatre for a spot of stand-up comedy after your pizza.

The interior is spacious with family-style wooden tables and benches and white tiled walls. The custom-built, for each location, oven is a highlight of the room where you can watch your pizzas going into the 500 degree brick ovens. The back wall of the restaurant also features a cool mural by the famous Italian-born cartoonist, Enzo Apicella. The pizzeria also features a lovely seating area outside for those wanting to get a bit of sun while they enjoy a sourdough slice.

The sourdough is freshly made on site every day and is ensured a minimum 20 hour slow prove to create that distinct Franco Manca taste. The dough is made using a starter that dates back to the 18th century, the owners sourced it from Italy when they first started and have been keeping it going ever since.

Chiswick is one of the few Franco Manca pizzerias that offers lessons so if you fancy learning how to stretch your own sourdough, you can sign up for a pizza masterclass, held every second Monday of the month. The class costs £30 and includes two and a half hours of learning how to make the slow-rise sourdough into Neapolitan-style pizzas, and of course eating them. You can book as a small group, share with other people, or book out the class for up to 20 people. It’s sure to be the ultimate pizza experience.

There's a reason it's rammed every Fri night
This is a staple of ours and will continue to be because it simply does not disappoint. Quality food, quality service and the Ciu Ciu wine is fabulous. If I had to fault it? It would be it gets really really busy and is hard to casually chat but that is price to pay for this.

This is one of my favourite fail safes. Great pizza, super reasonably priced and a lovely atmosphere. The Organic full bodied red wine is a steal at £14 and my ‘veggie special’ pizza cooked to perfection. The sourdough base really isn't as heavy as other pizzas and the flavours so fresh. This isn't gastronomic, fancy dining but then again, when is pizza ever posh? I highly recommend a trip here, great for an informal date, girly catch up or for those times when you're too lazy to cook. A great quality meal for two with a bottle and a half of wine (yes, we were VERY tipsy) cost £30 – BARGAIN TIP: The specials on the board are usually the best option

Delicious pizzas, wine and beer offering is limited but what is on offer is very satisfactory. Service can be slow sometimes but always polite and with a smile. Amazing value for money!
