Great value in Manchester City Centre

Stumbled upon this gem on a Sunday afternoon, when we couldn't secure a table at another restaurant close by. What a stroke of luck!

Definitely not a place to eat on a work lunch break. We went there with a co-worker on weekday and it took forever to get a salad then we had to ask three times for the bill. The food was good, but being late for a meeting tainted the experience.

This is my 'go to restaurant'.... I have never had a bad meal here, nothing overly fancy but quality and fabulous prices. I love the atmosphere, the service, the food.. the early bird menu is great. You cant book but I have never waited more than 20 minutes for a table and you can have a drink at the bar... More

Found this from the Visit Manchester website. It's very close to the Town Hall and not far from Deansgate and the Arndale. Good atmosphere, pleasant and airy design, very friendly waiting staff. A wide choice of pizzas, some toppings are a bit odd I have to admit, but clearly the kitchen takes care with making the bases which were beautiful.... More

Always come to Croma when in Manchester. Great choice of pizzas, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Good value lunch time and early evening deals. Super tasty goats cheese and roasted vegetable pizza. One of the few places I would recommend to friends as its always consistent.

Lovely restaurant in Manchester, pizzas are delicious with a nice choice of flavours. Tuesday deal is brilliant. However one of our group did ask for olives which they messed up, but one small mistake. Nice staff and great atmosphere.

The Pizzas are all great, though some are a little odd! I've been coming here for years now, and always tried to have something different. The staff are always very friendly, though sometimes run off their feet a little. This is an extremely popular restaurant - for reasons that should be obvious!

Always a good place to go, good pizzas but especially a good place to go as they have gluten- free pizza bases so that people who are gluten intolerant can enjoy any pizza in the range rather than having to go for something like risotto- other restaurants please take note

I have been here so many times now and I never get tired of it! If you've not been before, I recommend the dough balls to start, with the duck pizza for your main and Eton mess for dessert- seriously, the best Italian I have ever had.

The restaurant was busy - it was a Saturday evening - but we didn't have to wait long for a table. The service was good considering the restaurant was so busy, the staff were very pleasant, the food was excellent, and they didn't try to rush us out at the end of the meal. All in all it was a...
