“Fantastic authentic pizza”
Review of Fatto a Mano Hove

Fatto a Mano Hove
Ranked #17 of 312 Restaurants in Hove
Price range: US$11 - US$21
Description: We are a neighbourhood pizzeria in the heart of Hove. Most of our tables are for walk-ins. For groups of 6+ we take reservations in the restaurant and our party room (for up to 14 people). Please call 01273 325400. Our philosophy is inspired by Naples, the birthplace of pizza. Soft and pillowy, rather than thin and crispy or a pizza pie. Our pizza dough is made on site every day, proved for a minimum of 24 hours, then topped by our pizzaiolo who cook every pizza in our wood fired oven at 450+ degrees. The proving means we're able to use minimal quantities of yeast in our dough, so our pizzas are light and easily digestible. Fatto a Mano literally means "made by hand" in Italian. So we serve fresh food, from a simple menu, at great prices. We look forward to welcoming you to Fatto a Mano Hove. Buon appetito!

I love the pizzas here, in the great wood-fired oven. I do ask to make sure they do them crispy, as I have had a soggy one before, particularly when they are busy.
Salads are great too, and some really nice wines.

We always pop in here for lunch when visiting family in Hove. The pizzas are delicious and reasonably priced with a decent choice and a bit different to your usual high street chain menu. Kids also seem to eat free - pizza/pasta and ice cream, which is brilliant. The restaurant is a decent size, with outside seating and the front opens up which is lovely in the Summer. Every time we have been with our 2 year old (at least 4) we have always found the staff very friendly and great at interacting with children. Most of these times the child's food has come out first, which if you are parent you will appreciate. We definitely continue to come here on our visits to Hove.

The food and service was excellent, however my only criticism would be that there is no phone service inside the restaurant so I would suggest they install Wi-Fi

Went with my husband for lunch today an experience not to be repeated.
The toppings were tasty but the base was so soggy. Not enjoyable at all. Pizza based should be crispy. We could not cut a slice and eat it because it was soggy and the topping just slid off.

The pizza here is really brilliant - I really enjoy the consistency and toppings available.
Also the decor and ambience is great - lots of room so you never feel squashed.
My only qualm is one of the pizza chefs at the bar /oven pizza seating area was staring so much and seemed to be evesdroppping the conversation with my friend - that it was rather unnecessary and disconcerting. But that is all - the food and waiting staff were superb though.
