Centrally located and within perfect shopping distance from Camden Town market sits Franco Manca Kentish Town edition. The pizzeria is great for eager concert goers, just over the road from the tube station near Kentish Town O2 Forum. Pre-gig or post-shop, the location is brilliant for hungry tourists or native Londoners alike craving a mouth-wateringly good sourdough pizza.
The interior is inviting and friendly with exposed brick and pretty floor-tiling complementing the wooden tones underneath the spotlighting features. The aroma of fresh tomatoes and the hot ovens baking away is more than enticing. Diners can watch the expert pizza makers turn the dough elegantly from their seats as they contemplate the well-thought out menu. Outside seating options are available for a pizza amongst the rich area of Camden and to peek at the shops you’ll want to venture off to next.
Customers have extolled the service at this intimate, cosy pizzeria where you can customise the pizza, and have it piled high with quality, tasty toppings. Alfonso’s no.7 is a great option, created by a Michelin star chef inspired by the tastes of Naples, with cherry-red Gragnano tomatoes, slow-roasted aubergine, mozzarella, and lashings of wild garlic pesto among the spicy meats. The dough is made from a centuries old starter and fermented for over 20 hours to achieve that tangy, sour flavour - full of punch to complement any combination of cheese, cured meats, or vegetables.
The menu is flexible for anyone from vegans to meat-eaters. Children and big groups are welcome too. The specials board is a must for the adventurous pizza enthusiast wanting to expand their palate or just to taste the best ingredients of the day. Fiery lamb sausage, the freshest basil, and Franco’s spice infused chilli oil are all potential topping ingredients for your sourdough-based feast.
