The brainchild of Giuseppe Mascoli, Franco Manca Belsize Park takes pizza back to its simplest roots. This celebrated sourdough pizza restaurant is ‘regularly voted the best in the country’, according to The Times.

Blasted in a wood-burning oven at 500°C and then topped with premium, organic ingredients, favourite toppings from the Franco Manca menu include Gloucester Old Spot ham, and cured chorizo. Heaters and blankets keep al fresco diners toasty in winter, and there is a conservatory area indoors.

Franco Manca restaurant prides itself on its carefully sourced food and drink. Fine organic wine, ‘no logo’ beer and an array of soft drinks is headed by the renowned organic lemonade. Regularly-changing puddings are chalked on the boards at Franco Manca in London along with other ‘bites’ and specials.

Proving to be as popular as its predecessors, Belsize Park Franco Manca is found 3 minutes’ walk from Belsize Park Tube Station.

    I never usually write feedback but I was so disappointed in this meal that feel it needs telling. Firstly, the service was appalling. It feels like it's run by hormonal Italian teenagers who rather flirt with each other then serve customers. We had to keep calling the waitress to serve us. Secondly, the pizza! I felt like I was eating a plate of dough with no toppings. The dough was lovely but I ordered a pizza with muchroom and ham. The pizza had only 3 slices of mushrooms and a few bits of ham. Dessert was dry and pointless.I've heard such good things about FM so i was expecting a good meal but I don't think I'll be going back in a hurry.

    Delicious food but terrible service - we had to flag someone down both to order the main meal and dessert as the staff had clearly forgotten about us.. one waitress was clearly avoiding making eye contact as we were clearly trying to get someone's attention. They also brought us the wrong dessert... Lots of mistakes - it happens, but an apology would have been appreciated.

    Good pizzas, very good value, but incredibly noisy restaurant. Had to shout to my dining partner at times to be heard above the din and clatter and completely superfluous music which no one can really hear but just makes one have to shout louder. Not for a quiet evening out!
