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.

My No.5 was excellent! Beautiful anchovy, caper, olive mix and generous enough. Nice to have grappa available. My wife’s Meat Special was very disappointing.....lacked flavour

Great food and drink. The burrata to start is delicious and all the pizzas are fantastic. Fresh ingredients in a nice atmosphere.

The pizza was very good and well made. The Parmigiana not at the same level. The tomato was very watery and uncooked. The Burrata was not bad but because it had been kept in the fridge it had lost some of the flavour and it was a bit too dense. If I was in Naples (were I came from) I would have given the restaurant no more than 3 stars but for a London pizzeria it is quite good. Again, the pizza is one of the best I had in London and it is better than many places in Italy. I will definitely go back for the pizza and the burrata but I will not order the Parmigiana. Service very good.

It was our 36th wedding anniversary and my daughter mentioned it when she booked for us. When we arrived there was daffodils in a vase on the table, a happy anniversary message and our pizzas were heart shaped. Lovely touches and the staff were very friendly.

Belsize Park is our favourite Franco Manca restaurant. Really friendly and professional staff and of course the very best pizzas all at an incredibly good price.
