Dublin restaurant named as one of the Top 50 pizzerias in Europe
You might want to get a slice from here.
Manifesto Restaurant in Rathmines, Dublin has been named as one of the Top 50 pizzerias in Europe.
The Top 50 Pizza Awards took place in Naples in July but the folks at Manifesto were only informed of their prestigious position last week.
Manifesto is the only Irish restaurant to be named in the top 50.
In terms of Manifesto's, erm, manifesto, the restaurant only serves homemade pasta, pizza, bread and desserts.
The restaurant is authentically Italian and has a focus on Southern Italian cuisine and wine.
As for its notable pizzas, the Don Corleone (Best Pizza in Ireland 2011) is a matching of mozzarella, fennel pork sausage, friarielli, basil and extra virgin olive oil.
The Sofia Loren (Best Pizza in the World 2010, Gold) sees mozzarella, organic cherry tomatoes, basil, rocket, parma ham, and parmesan coming together, while the Mamy (Best Pizza in the World 2006, Gold) consists of tomato sauce, mozzarella, aubergine, basil, parma ham and parmesan, with buffalo mozzarella added after cooking.
Speaking about the honour, owner and chef Lucio Paduano said: “To be listed among the top 50 pizzeria’s in Europe is a huge honour for us. At Manifesto we work so hard, using premium ingredients in all our pizzas and being Italian, authenticity is at the heart of everything we do. This listing recognises our hard work and effort and myself and the whole team are extremely grateful.”
Congratulations to all those involved.
