Always a delight....

As regular visitors to Croma we can honestly say it is always an absolute pleasure. Offering consistently good quality food and some unusual but deliciously creative topping choices on pizzas as well as a range of other equally tasty dishes.

We went prior to attending the theatre. Early bird menu good value for money, dough balls, pizza and a drink for £10.95. It's on until 7. Staff were very accomodating, our party arrived at different times and ordered at different times but they were very accepting of this. Pizza was good although I personally thought it could have done with... More

It is really disappointing to read on the menù "Neapolitan pizza" and then see a really low quality pizza in front of you. The one I had was not a real pizza from Naples. Obviously everyone can sell pizza, but if you state "Neapolitan", then I do expect something else. The staff was really nice and the restaurant itself is... More

Croma is spreading its wings, but the original restaurant in the heart of Manchester really excels in the service of popular and very imaginative pizzas. The quality of food and service is excellent. The more unusual pizzas include a delicious All-day Full English Breakfast, Chinese Duck with all the trimmings, Smoked Haddock with a Poached Egg and an Indian Curry.... More

We went as a party of 13 from work. We preordered food and drinks due to work requirements and the staff were very helpful on the night. We had quite a quick turnaround and they were very efficient at bringing all the drinks out and clearing away plates between courses. The starter selections and mains were delicious - I would...

Always visit Croma as a treat after giving blood at the donation centre around the corner. The pizza choices are fantastic and I'm slowly working my way down the menu. I think the piri piri one is my favourite so far. The duck salad is also very good but the constant in any vist are the dough balls. Really good!

I've always spoken highly of this restaurant and have been many times over the years with friends, colleagues and family alike. However, when a friend visited recently and we popped in for an early evening meal after shopping in town, I have to say that it is the first time I've ever been both surprised and disappointed with our food....

Called again for lunch yesterday with family and as usual left very pleased. Really enjoy the tomato and basil garlic bread starter and the.dough on the pizzas is so fresh and light, my favourite pizza in the city. Recommend.

We keep trying different eating places in Manchester City centre, 'just for a change' but we still have not found one to beat Croma. They are tops for excellent customer service (very little staff changes which must say something) Lovely atmosphere, lighting, crisp cotton napkins and of course the best pizzas around as well as other pasta dishes. Pizza probably... More
