“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

As we hadn't booked we expected to wait, was told half an hour but more like 20 minutes.
Was greeted by friendly staff at the door with the bar and rest of staff being as courteous.
Food was delicious and excellent value for money. Nice selection of cocktails if quite limited.
Looking forward to going back.

“Lovely food with reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I've eaten here a couple of times, and would definitely return. There's a fairly large choice on the menu, all seem reasonably priced. I've only been at peak times so there wasn't a table available immediately but the system is fair, we were shown to a seating area to wait and were shown to our table around 15 minutes later. Pizza is lovely and fresh, the starter was slightly small but nothing to really grumble about. The service was a bit slow, that is my only downfall of the night but as mentioned, we did go when the restaurant was full.

“Good lunch time drop in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The pizzas are very good , the house red excellent, the atmosphere is good and the staff attentive. We went for lunch and just had a pizza each and a bottle of wine between the two of us. My wife was dissapointed that her favourite 'Thai' pizza was no longer on the menue but we both had the americano hot which we enjoyed ....they were very tasty and well cooked but a little oily. Prices reasonable, coffee excellent.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Went there after reading comments on TA. When you walk in you are greeted by nice gentlemen,i like atmophere,lighting andgeneral vibe. Pizza was nice,you can taste that dough and tomato base are fresh and homemade, it was good but not great. Me and my girlfriend also shared chicken and goatcheese pasta main as a starter which was delicious. We also shared homemade tiramisu which was very nice too, well balanced,not to much booze. Overall very good expierience but not amazing

“Great food, great service, great price and free wine !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Having eaten at the 2 other Cromas in Manchester, we thought we would try the third one in the City Centre. It was Friday afternoon and the place was really busy when we arrived but we were shown immediately to a table in the back alcove. Our order was taken quickly and drinks were brought with a smile: strawberry juice( lovely) and I also had a voucher for a free bottle of wine from previous visits. Food didn't take long to arrive and as always was delicious: tandoori chicken salad for 2 of us and doughballs and tandoori chicken pizza for the third with tea and coffee to follow.
The restaurant is in a quirky old buliding with tables on three floors and has a great, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is fresh with good quality ingredients and some innovative touches and is consistently good at a great price. What more can you ask for? We will be back soon !
