Lovely food and staff!!

I have been to Croma on three occasions, one being my 21st!! The staff are very friendly and I like the fact you don't have to book, if it's a little busy you can always wait at the bar until you're ready to be served. The food is amazing as are the cocktails. Nice place to go for lunch or... read more

The pizzas here are delicious, amazing dough and there's a great choice of more unusual toppings. We turned up on a Friday night and hadn't booked but they still managed to accommodate us. Really friendly, quick service and a great atmosphere. The decor/style of this Croma is more up market than other Cromas I have been to, it's definitely my... More

The food was also excellent, well prepared, fresh and all arrived in good time, infact I believe my partner described the Tiramisu as "the best in Manchester" Will definitely be... More

I was here again this month and it occurred to me that with many visits in between, it is quite a long time ago since I last wrote a review. This continues to be one of my favourite restaurants in Manchester. The menu is American/Italian and simple dishes but they have never disappointed. I love the open multi tiered lay... More

Called in this lunchtime and had the goat's cheese salad and a soda water and lime. 5 hrs later came down with the runs and bad stomach (first time in many years). Rang the restaurant just to make them aware that there was a problem. The manager was quite dismissive - said it was very odd as there is nothing... More
