After a full day shopping, we needed somewhere to stop for some lunch. We were seated quickly (even without a reservation), the waiter was clearly busy but friendly, the pizza's were nice, we did comment that they were a little on the small side but actually once we had eaten them we were full! Prices good, food tasty and service... More

The restaurant was busy at lunchtime but the staff made us welcome and took us immediately to an excellent table, took the order and delivered a super pizza that was exactly as described on the menu. Attentive but not over familiar staff kept the drinks flowing and made lunch a most pleasant experience. A real oasis at this time of... More

I have dined at Croma a few times over the last 5 years or so and have never been disappointed. My last visit, a cold and rainy Friday evening in November, was particularly splendid, with the sumptuous Sticky Toffee Pudding warming the cockles of my heart (and tummy). My partner, on her second visit to the restaurant, described her dining... More

I chose this restaurant as it had good reviews and I was in Manchester for one night staying in a hotel nearby. The welcome at the door and decor were both good and the service was prompt. The food was very average but perhaps not surprising given the prices. However from my seat I could see down to the kitchen... More

We had a good choice off the early bird menu which we found was great value. The pizzas were great and the desserts were heavenly. The staff were very polite and friendly and made the children on other tables very welcome. It was possibly the nicest pizza I have ever eaten!

Went as part of a group of 12 family and friends for my birthday. Good location just off Albert Square. Nice decor. We had cocktails as there is a promotion on Tuesdays. We all had something different and everyone enjoyed the food. The desserts were very nice, service was good. Would like to go back. Only slight negative is the... More

Visited Croma early evening with work colleagues. I have never been to this restaurant before however I was extremely impressed with the food. We each had the set menu for £10.95 which consisted of a drink, starter and pizza. Excellent value. Food was hot and cooked to perfection. I will definitely be returning in the near future as I was... More

Lovely food and good value. Prompt service and quick delivery of food so advantageous if your limited to time! Though I much prefer to be a bit more relaxed and given a bit more time between courses.

Croma is ideally situated for Albert square and surrounding area, I was skeptical about returning here after some previous visits a couple of years ago. But wow the decor has not changed and is still delightfull, the food was fantastic although for a meat eater the menu is somewhat space. Had a three course meal and not one complaint, try... More

We've been here many times and enjoyed it. Saturday evening was busy but whilst we were waiting for a table we held the door open for a lady with a pram and the Maitre D' (if that's what you call the man at the front desk) gave our table to someone else that just walked in off the street! He... More
