Why you’ll love Fatto a Mano Preston Circus

Fatto A Mano Preston Circus started its journey in Brighton in 2015, and has since expanded to several pizzerias in Brighton, Hove, and London. The adventure began at their Preston Circus venue. As you walk in, you’ll see a giant blue and white mosaic pizza oven—a sure sign that you’ve found a place that knows how to craft authentic Neapolitan pizza.

Fatto A Mano translates to “hand made,” and they take this seriously—crafting everything possible by hand daily in their kitchen. From the dough to the pesto, even their vegan nduja is made fresh. Their friendly, relaxed atmosphere makes it a favourite among locals, from residents to nearby workers. It’s the perfect spot to grab a lunch treat or enjoy a date night.

The menu is simple but renowned for its Neapolitan pizzas with fresh ingredients. Besides their famous pizzas, you can also enjoy Neapolitan starters and sides like arancini, Parmigiana Di Melanzane, and the must-try Campania Fries with garlic and rosemary.

RB loves taking a seat in their cosy pizzeria with a bottle of wine, Capricciosa, and Marinara pizzas to share alongside the Campania Fries – of course!
