The flames from the oven caught our eye from the front of the restaurant. They had always intrigued us but we’d never gotten the opportunity to head in – until today.
On quick glance of Manifesto in Rathmines you wouldn’t think much. The exterior is a dark, gloomy brown, but the chance of eating a wood-fired pizza was too much of a temptation on a drizzly day.
Plonking down, I settled on a Quattro Formaggi (four-cheese) pizza and my partner opted for the Sophia Loren.
I’m not a massive pizza lover, but when I do order one, I like them to be thin, crispy and absolutely flavoursome. Our pizzas didn’t disappoint.
Crispy with oozing cheeses flowing across the crust and hidden basil leaves lurking in the golden – it was the perfect lunch filler.
Sophia Loren was a beauty with rocket, cherry tomatoes, Parma ham and cheese, bursting with flavour with each bite.
Soon the building filled up with hungry couples and happy families and I can definitely see why.
With several more options on the menu and coming in at €10 with a drink on the lunch special, how could I not come back? It was a choice well made.
Come again: You can count on it
