If you're a wanker looking for a trendy place to tell people yoi've eaten at don't bother (and skip the wine too) but if you want the most authentic and tastiest pizza available, this is your place. They have the best pizza oven in town and use quality ingredients for every part of the pizzas. Don't reveal yourself to be a moron by leaving crusts on your plate - their sourdough bases destroy anything else you would have eaten. Go there!
Congratulations, you've managed to totally ruin all other pizza places for me. I hope you're happy. Every time I try to step into a pizza joint, I think of the flavours that go so perfectly together on your chorizo pizza and I have to turn around and leave. Before I met you, I was skeptical and didn't think you'd live up to your expectations. But you did, and now you are the only pizza for me.
Finally gotten round to going to Franco Manca. Was surprised by how small the place is – as well as the casual attitude in service. But the pizzas arrive quickly, big sized, and are pretty good. The sourdough base is something unique, and the combination of toppings for the Number 5 really did go extremely well together – one of the most exciting combinations of flavours on a pizza I’ve had in a long time!

Extraordinarily tasty pizza using the freshest ingredients and put together really well. We often take our little boy there and he is made to feel very welcome, this doesn’t often happen in restaurants when you have an energetic 2 yr old….Anyone looking for a quick relaxing lunch will have a great experience at Franco Manca.
The pizzas here are legendary. Only five or six to choose from but they taste amazing. You will have to queue for 20mins as it is very popular but it is well worth the wait!

As I have read in another review/comment somewhere, these pizzas are too cheap and too good to be true, and yet they exist. I have been to Rome recently so I'd lying if I said that they are the best I've tasted in my life (those belong in Rome, for sure). But they are the best I've tasted in London, no question about it.
I went on a Saturday at lunchtime and there was a massive queue, that lasted until 4pm. Still, you don't have to wait much because all tables are shared, pizzas are cooked in 2 minutes and you basically eat and go. We waited for about 30min. and I guarantee it was worth it. Also the homemade lemonade was really good. I totally recommend this place.
Franco Manca has been in the market for a very long time and has been having a rather nice time for a few years now. The menu is small and simple and the resulting pizzas great. The wine and homemade lemonade are both really good. And a cooled bottle of tap water for your table is a nice touch. The only fault I find these days is it's success! Get in early or stand round like a fool waiting your turn to indulge!
I think is overrated, the pizza is okay, I would go back for sure, but just to think that I have to wait so long to get seated and I have to share a tiny table again?! Last time, it was so crowded I spill some one's drink, it was very embarrassing.
I finally got to try this place - I really loved the pizza and yes you have to wait a bit until seated but (which IMO is a great idea) your order is taken while you are still in the queue and right before you are seated so the pizza is served very quickly.
Besides being really impressed by the pizza base and the quality of the ingredients, it was very nice that the unbelievably busy staff still find time to stop by and ask if everything is ok – a very small but very nice touch that a lot of much more upscale restaurants don't bother with.
I will sooo be back.
