Does Franco Manca take bookings?
Most of our pizzerias will take bookings, however in some cases this may only be for certain times during the day. Check your local pizzeria page to find out more. You can also just turn up and eat. Sometimes there’s a queue but they move fast and they’re good for the appetite.
Can I book a private space for an event?
Some of our pizzerias have areas which are available for private hire. Birthday or business, we can help you plan and host the perfect event. You can find out more and enquire here >
Does Franco Manca do takeaway?
We do. You have three options:
Modern (for us)- choose your local pizzeria. Click on the order link, order, pay, then go and collect.
Less modern- phone your local, place the order, go in, pay and take home.
Really old fashioned- go to your local, place your order, wait and take it away.
Will Franco Manca support my charity or sponsor me?

Is Franco Manca veg / vegan?
Vegans are not an afterthought at Franco Manca. Our No.1 pizza and January No.7 pizza are vegan. We have a vegan cheese, which is available at all of our pizzerias, and can be swapped instead of mozzarella, or added as an extra topping. Please ask your server when ordering.
We also have vegetarian options. Each pizzeria has a veg special that changes daily, as well as a vegan special which changes monthly.

Our dough is made in our pizzerias every day, from sea salt, water, TYPE 0 flour and our sourdough starter. No yeast is added to our dough, any traces of yeast are naturally occurring.
Are the meats on your menu Halal?
Our chicken and lamb sausages are Halal, our fennel sausage is not. Our Bresaola is not considered Halal. However, we can say that the product is free of ingredients that would be considered Haram. Please ask your server about our daily changing specials.
I want to give feedback. Who can I talk to?

Is Franco Manca gluten free?
Everyone deserves pizza. Our new gluten free pizza is now available at all of our restaurants. Give it a try and let us know what you think. View our menu here >
However, we should warn you that we have flour throughout our busy kitchens and your gluten free pizza will be sharing an oven with our classic sourdough. Whilst we will take every reasonable precaution, we cannot give a 100% guarantee that there will be no cross contamination. Please ensure you notify your server of any allergies when ordering.
To ensure that your local pizzeria has our gluten free base available, please call the pizzeria ahead of your visit.

What does Franco Manca mean?
Franco Manca means “Franco is missing”. Before Franco Manca opened in Brixton Market in 2008, there was a pizzeria called Franco’s. When Franco handed the reins over to Giuseppe Mascoli and his artisan baker friend Bridget Hugo, they named the new pizzeria in Franco’s honour. Find out more about the birth of Franco Manca here.
