From Brixton to Brixton

All good things must come to an end, so they say - and become even better. We can’t quite believe it’s happening, but after 15 amazing years at our very first site in Brixton Market, we’re moving! This restaurant holds a special place in our hearts, but we’ve simply outgrown it so it’s time for a fresh start.

Brixton is and will always be our home, so although we’re moving, don’t worry – we’re staying. We’re setting up shop in a much bigger space down the road, just 2 minutes’ walk away. Get ready for Franco Manca Brixton 2.0!

Our new restaurant is a delight – bright and spacious, but with that local, rustic feel that embodies who we are. It’s perfectly located in the centre of Brixton between the tube and train stations, surrounded by an array of bars, shops and markets. Come and give us a wave at 20 Atlantic Road, as we get ready to welcome you all in January 2024!

This move means a great deal to us, as it demonstrates just how far we’ve come since we started in 2008. Back then, Neapolitan-style sourdough pizza was unknown in the UK – and boy did we change that! Word quickly spread about our delicious, incredible quality pizza, and queues were soon winding their way out of the market. We opened our second site in Chiswick in 2009, then a third, fourth, fifth and the rest is history. We now have 69 restaurants across the UK, bringing the joy of our sourdough pizza to thousands of customers every day. Now feels like the right time to move to a new home, fitting of who we are today.

We’ll always cherish the amazing memories from Brixton Market with our customers and staff, and would love you to send in any photos and stories of your visits to We’ll be sharing them on our socials and yours could even make it onto our wall of fame in the new restaurant!

Brixton may be our oldest restaurant, but it’s about to become our newest. We’ve come full circle, from Brixton to Brixton, and we’re so excited for you to join us on this journey.
