Franco Manca is one of the daddies as far as Neapolitan-style pizza in London is concerned, and their original restaurant in Brixton Arcade is where it all started. Coming here is like travelling back in time, kind of like visiting a retro arcade, or going outside the M25. The inside of the restaurant has a huge oven that keeps the place warm, and turns out excellent pizzas with top quality, classic toppings like wild mushrooms and buffalo ricotta. Whatever you order, you can’t go wrong, and it’s perfect for a casual hang or pre-lash eats.
