“Amazing food and great service!”

Franco Manca Brighton
Ranked #88 of 1,309 Restaurants in Brighton
Certificate of Excellence
Description: The pizza is made from slow-rising sourdough (minimum 20 hours) and is baked in a wood burning 'Tufae' brick oven made on site by specialised artisans from Naples. This oven produces a heat of about 500c (930f). The slow levitation and blast-cooking process lock in the flour's natural aroma and moisture giving a soft, easily digestible crust. As a result, the edge (cornicione) is excellent and shouldn't be discarded.

I went to Franco Manca Brighton on my own on Wednesday and I must admit the staff was sooo nice I felt like i was visiting some friends! Amazing service, i must thank Vincenzo who took really good care of my order,food and mood that night! I had a burrata and a pizza number 4(old time favorite) the dough was perfectly cooked, the ricotta cheese so nice and creamy! I really enjoyed it! The atmosphere as usual very warm and familiar! Keep doing the great job guys, you are amazing!

Met friends here for supper on a busy sunny Saturday early evening and there was a great atmosphere in the restaurant. Staff very attentive and happy to make suggestions on the menu. Plenty to choose from and food was to an excellent standard.

We sat outside overlooking the marina, excellent scenery and ambience. It was my first time at this restaurant and I was really looking forward to trying out the sour dough based pizza. The menu is very limited and cannot in any way compete with other pizza establishments, it’s USP is the sour dough. The pizza was soggy and underwhelming, the sparkling wine was served in tumblers and the ice bucket was a catering size baked bean can, but it did the job. Although it is in a perfect spot, I wouldn’t return, not even for a free meal. There are other places in that vicinity where the food is of a much higher quality.
