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.

We have been seated on the terrace so it was nice and felt so nice the fresh air until the person next to our table started smoking and all the cigarette smoke made me feel like coughing and to not enjoy the pizza as much. Luckily soon they left so i managed to enjoy the remaining pizza. The pizza here is always nice and the people who work here are always friendly and helpful.

Pizza was fantastic, service was good but the table was very small. We were seeing friends who we were not in a social bubble with a bigger table would have made me more comfortable

We could not have a meal there as their gluten free pizza is not gluten free as it’s not cooked using a separate tray and therefore it’s not suitable for people who have allergies. This is not made clear in their menus (they say the food is handled in a kitchen that uses wheat containing products, which usually isn’t a problem if food is carefully handled). In the end we paid for our drinks and left the restaurant to move to another nearby pizzeria who are not misleading in presenting their food as it’s gluten free. Shame for a well established pizzeria whose food is otherwise delicious.
