I was surprised that a place with those prices looked so smart. Our waitress was nice and friendly and the staff seemed to have a good atmosphere among themselves. I was a bit suspicious towards my Caesar salad pizza, because is a pizza without tomato sauce even a pizza? Turned out it's a really good pizza! My boyfriend liked his... More

I was in a group of 5 ladies visiting Manchester for the weekend and had been recommended this restaurant by a work colleague. Apparently bookings can only be made for tables of 6 or more and, on arrival, found the restaurant was packed. We were directed to the bar and ordered a drink while we waited, which wasn't too long... More

Food was plentiful and of a good... More

There is a reason that Croma is always busy and that is the consistently good food, good value and fast service. I'll be back

Came here on a day out to Manchester for lunch and it was in a lovely location, just off Albert Square. Other close by Italians were just around the corner e.g Piccolino, Pizza Express. We were greated pleasantly and taken to our table instantly. Although it was quiet when we went in (about 12:10), the restaurant was nearly full within... More

Early evening meal after theatre. Have been to Croma many times over the years and never disappointed. Food delicious, service excellent and real value for money. Why go to one of pizza chains when Croma do it so well? Fab atmosphere too.
