We went to Croma for lunch while on a Saturday shopping trip to Manchester. The restaurant was pretty full, but the service was good in spite of that, the food was excellent and, for a city centre restaurant, the price wasn't bad either. All in all it was a very worthwhile experience.

My partner and I visit here quite often (around once a month) and always have a delicious meal. Being gluten-free myself I always struggle to find places that accommodate to my dietary requirements but Croma makes delicious pizzas that are suitable (woohoo!). We have always been with my brother who is a vegetarian and he has always found plenty to... More

Used to visit this place on a reasonably frequent basis about ten years ago, usually between work and the theatre when we wanted something, quick relaxed and simple. Pretty much the same experience, usually very busy, but they generally find a table. Mainly a typical pizza menu but a few twists and flexible toppings. Also offers alternatives if you are... More

This was our third visit but had it been our first we would not have returned. The waiter we had was a thin version of Victor Meldrew. He was unwelcoming, unfriendly, unhelpful and very abrupt. Sad because the man at the door was charming and smiley as was the waitress who brought our starters. The food was very flavoursome and... More

Enjoyed our first visit to Croma, staff very attentive to all our needs. The food was very tasty and did not disappoint. The cost was also less than expected. Will certainly be returning.

Starters were very good and tasty, the pate was great. Pizza was a bit of a let down, it was full of flavour and all that, but the base was to chewy and tick, wouldn't order another pizza. Not much of a service thought the whole meal, kinda have to lean from my chair to get someone's attention. I'll visit... More

This isn't our first visit because it's our go to restaurant when we fancy a upmarket pizza. It's a bright and airy place with a white and chrome theme and I always find the service very good, this visit was no exception. My fish pizza (marinara) was very good complemented with 4 very large prawns. The salmon and lobster pasta... More
