Step right into the familiar white facade with its cherry red awning and you’ll be greeted by Franco Manca’s bright and cheery interior or take a relaxing break from the high street on the quaint outdoor seating. The immediate feel-good endorphins associated with a delicious hot pizza will envelope you as you take in the modern exposed brick and colourful floor tiling. Close to the common and Kynaston gardens, and just down the road from Stoke Newington station, all Stokey inhabitants or tourists are welcome.
The main pizza menu consists of six smashing flavour curations from simple, but satisfying margarita with buffalo mozzarella to more complex pairings. The seventh pizza option is a guest feature from renowned pizzaiolo masters such as Diego Vitagliano who has created a stunning concoction inspired by the Campania region of Naples. This fresh take combines Italian ideals with great British produce with spiced pancetta, Colston Bassett, and beautifully caramelised red onions.
The waiters and chefs are often commended for being knowledgeable and accommodating. It’s no wonder the pizzeria is acclaimed for being a pizza pioneer in the UK. Great on any budget, for a quick bite or a relaxing family dinner, you can trust in quality food and high standards.
The wines are sourced from renowned Italian vineyard regions and the beers are locally sourced London no logo brews – the perfect drinks list where you can have the best of both worlds. Pair up with your favourite toppings and don’t forget to order sharing plates and dessert. Tiramisu always goes down well after a pizza piled high with flavourful ingredients.
The restaurant is fully family friendly and has disabled access and loos. Next time you’re heading off to Stokey, make sure you grab a fantastic slice of pizza from the pizzaiolo professionals at Franco Manca.
