Manifesto Restaurant in Dublin has been named among the best pizza restaurants in Europe at the Top 50 Pizza Awards, the only Irish restaurant to make the list.
Manifesto Restaurant, in Rathmines, was listed 35th in the Top 50 Pizza Awards for their fresh, authentic pizzas. According to Top 50 Pizza organisers, the award criteria is a combination of not only the pizza but also the customer service, ambiance of the restaurant and wine list.
The selection of winners is based on an initial survey carried out by over 150 inspectors, then followed by an anonymous visit and a further declaration following the review.
Owner and chef Lucio Paduano said: “To be listed among the top 50 pizzerias 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.”
Lucio is no stranger to awards, having picked up multiple titles over the last 15 years including gold medals at the World’s Best Pizza Competition (2006, 2010) and Ireland’s Best Pizza (2011) at the World Pizza Championships.
