Franco Manca, Covent GardenFast becoming London's favourite pizza restaurant, new branches of Franco Manca are popping up all over the place and this Covent Garden branch is their prettiest location yet with two levels and exposed brickwork inside and beautiful arches and hanging baskets on the exterior. Found on Maiden Lane, which is also home to Polpo and the Big Easy, the branch serves the distinct brand of pizzas that are renowned for their delicious slow-rise sourdough crusts and even more appealing prices. The simple menu consists of six pizzas made with ingredients like fresh mozzarella, made daily on Lloyd Green's organic farm in Somerset; tomatoes from small co-op of organic producers in Italy; and ham and sausages made in partnership with David Tomlin from the Rare Bread Survival Trust. The drinks menu is equally simple with the choice between one lager, one ale, organic wines, traditional prosecco and a range of soft drinks. Here it's all about quality and we'd be hard pushed to stray anywhere else for our pizza fix.
