Fancy a bit of culture with your sourdough pizza? Franco Manca’s South Kensington branch is the perfect location for the museum buffs. Just down the road from the pizzeria, you can hang out with the dinosaurs for a post-pizza jaunt. There’s the stunning V&A, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum, all filled to the brim with cool exhibitions and the architecture is a sight to behold.
There’s also the beautiful Royal Albert Hall, a stunning concert hall venue just on the other side of the sprawling Hyde Park. You’ll also be a short walk from the ultimate luxury shopping destination, Harrods. That pizza is calling your name. Get on the tube to South Ken right now and you’ll be immediately greeted by the aroma of hot pizza at Franco Manca's.
For the sunny days, make sure you get a seat outside to soak up the rays and enjoy your food with a view. Head inside to be warmly welcomed by the friendly staff and grab a seat by the ovens, as you mouth-wateringly watch the expert pizzaiolo command the dough with such skill and joy. The toppings truly level up the experience, with a range of meats, cheeses, and beautiful vegetables sourced from Italy and Britain. Think about the sweet, jammy, caramelised onions, tantalising Colston Basset stilton, or the fresh milky burrata doused in olive oil and bright green basil.
While the Neapolitan-style pizzas are deliciously executed to a tee, don’t sleep on the rest of the menu. The roast butternut squash salad is a vibrant delight with tangy goat’s curd, and warm walnuts. The aubergine parmigiana is a rich, heady experience. The drinks list features the best of both countries with Italian wines and London beers. Be sure not to miss out on the classic desserts either, tiramisu is always a winner.
