This is my favourite pizza place. I order the roasted veg pizza every time. It's delicious. So are the dough balls. The early bird dinner is also good value. Thoroughly recommend Croma!

This restaurant atmosphere was electric and enjoyable. It was a bit noisy, but it was a Saturday night so that is what you would expect. Service was friendly and good. The starters were very good with plenty of choice and, the group of friends I was with all enjoyed their main course, as did I. I had the Prawn &... More

Had a lovely meal here with my daughter and my husband. The food was good and reasonably priced. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant and friendly service, would definitely return here next time we're in Manchester.

Started to visit just after it opened nearly 20 years ago - some of the staff still the same and still one of our favourite restaurants in a city where it is easy to eat well. It's a simply decorated but sophisticated and stylish - beautifully lit and I don't where they get their staff but they are always pleasant... More

Good food, reasonably priced and fast service which is what you need on your lunch hour. Nice place inside and plenty of seats which is good as you can't book for less than six people. A good option for those wanting gluten free (all pizza bases can be made either way). Would definitely come again.

Excellent food, especially the mozzarella used in my starter - the best I've had outside of Italy. There was an wide variety of pizzas to choose from, with some more unusual options as well as the usual margarita etc. I went for the blue and goats cheese pizza and although the base was a little bit thicker than I would...

The food was outstanding, the price was.. very very reasonable. What made this evening five stars was the service that we received. It was 30+ degrees, a few drinks were on the house because of this and the waiter was so very polite. There was an issue with the food in the kitchen so before it got to us, they... More
