Located opposite the old walls the setting for Franco Manca is a picturesque one. It’s interior offers the warmth of a friendly atmosphere whilst the outside dining offers a real alfresco dining experience! Even on cooler days the overhead heaters that cover the outside dining area mean you can enjoy dining alfresco whatever the weather!
What’s truly different about Franco Manca is their fresh approach to ingredients. Everything is prepared from scratch, even their flour is different! They use a soft wheat flour that at the end of the long fermentation process exhausts its starch content, transforming it in to “noble sugars”, this makes it easier for your stomach to digest! They choose heritage tomatoes to ensure you get the best flavours, and even their wine is from organic vineyards!
The menu focuses around 6 pizza choices. You can add to your pizza with cured meats, various mouthwatering cheeses, or olives and capers. Once you’ve chosen your pizza it’s just a case of waiting for it to be freshly prepared and stone-oven baked to perfection! Why not enjoy a selection of cured meats and cheeses as a starter? This will really awaken those taste buds!
