• Brighton has several gluten-free and vegan-friendly pizza restaurants; namely Purezza, Pizzaface and Morelli Zorelli – all of which I’ve tried vegan pizza from. And I’ll be honest, from what I tasted there, congealed vegan cheese isn’t something I’d ever choose to order… Until I tried the new gluten-free and vegan menu at Fatto a Mano.

  • There’s something about the Italian way of life that appeals to me. Firstly and most obviously, the food is quite simply delicious. Secondly, the people are passionate and lively. Thirdly it’s completely family oriented. These three observations perfectly sum up Neapolitan pizzeria, Fatto A Mano.

  • Like many others, I’ve been waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the pizza chain Franco Manca to Brighton. Not having visited any of the London restaurants myself, its reputation of creating simple, authentic soughdough pizza preceded itself. Originally born in Brixton Market in 2008, founded by Giuseppe Mascoli, it’s since been bought by restaurant entrepreneur David Page for a tidy sum of £27.5 million.

  • Of the 49 countries I have been lucky enough to visit, Italy ranks near the top of all-time favourites. With a rich history, jaw-dropping architecture, glorious weather, friendly people and most of all mouth-watering food.

  • I’ve had a lot of recommendations for Pizza 500, the little Italian joint on Preston Road in Brighton, so I thought it about time I popped along to review it. If you don’t know where it is, it’s right on the outskirts of Brighton, beneath the illuminated arches of the viaduct on the edge of Preston Park.
