Lunch at Franco Manca, West Quay

Pizza. Everyone’s favourite comfort food, and Franco Manca serve up the best pizza outside of Italy (in my humble opinion!). The new extension of West Quay, Southampton is host to a fantastic range of smaller restaurant chains, including Franco Manca, which has fast become my favourite pizza joint. Fresh, fast sourdough pizza and simple italian decor makes for a fantastic lunch venue.

One of my favourite things about Franco Manca is how reasonably priced everything is – with pizzas ranging from £4.95 to £8.25, you really can’t go wrong! Especially when everything on the menu is simply so delicious.

Olives – one of my favourite things, and if you haven’t yet tried Nocellara olives, you need to. Now.

We also had some chorizo bites – thinly sliced and mouth-wateringly good.

Plus some cheese garlic bread, of course! Now, I don’t want you to panic… but this is the best garlic bread I have ever tasted. A soft crust, freshly crushed garlic and excellent mozzarella – truly spectacular.

Each pizza is freshly made by a team of grinning staff, topped with simple, fresh and top quality ingredients and served with a smile. An excellent experience all round!

Dad opted for the No. 5 – topped with anchovies, olives, garlic, mozzarella, tomato and capers. Delicious.

I chose the meat special, topped with wild pig & fennel salami, wild broccoli, mozzarella, another cheese I’m not sure of, and tomato! Really, really excellent – a fantastic combination of flavours.
