There’s nothing quite like a good pizza. If you’re in and around Edinburgh City Centre this weekend then be sure to visit Franco Manca. For starters, the garlic bread and olives make a great choice. For mains, the roasted cured ham, mozzarella, ricotta & wild mushrooms pizza is absolutely divine. If you do have room left for dessert then it’s without a doubt that you should try the tiramisu. Each dish is generously portioned and the price point at this pizza joint makes it very affordable. This restaurant is also amazing for those who are dining with small children, the kids menu is excellent and great value for money. The service at this branch is absolutely magnificent, with speedy and attentive staff. Most certainly a pizza spot that is worth visiting with the whole family.
