FOOD & DRINK | Enzo's Blogger Event

Monday, July 24, 2017

Last week I was invited to a blogger event at Enzo's Manchester branch which is on Fountain Street in the city centre. (down the side of Primark) 

I hadn't heard of them before but looking at the website and seeing Pizza and Coffee I was excited. What I also liked was the story of how Enzo's came to be. I will leave you to read that for yourself on their website if you're interested. 


There is a fairly decent sized outside seating area at the front which would be lovely on a sunny day and a bright modern but with a bit of a retro vibe interior.

I did walk past a couple of times as it didn't look like an event, event. I went and found another blogger I knew who was going and we walked in together. I'm glad I didn't go in alone as I would have ended up sitting on my own until someone else I knew arrived.  


Luckily Rachel did know some of the others who were already seated so we joined them and then the lovely Claire arrived and joined us. I love meeting new bloggers and catching up with people I've not seen for a while.


I think we were all very taken with this sign and you'll be seeing it across most peoples posts, It's already on my Instagram account.



We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and then we got to try a few different slices of pizza and a bowl of pasta. The pasta wasn't for me, I can't put my finger on what it was I wasn't keen on but I'm a much bigger fan of pizza than pasta anyway.



The first two slices were Vegi Deluxe and one I didn't catch the name of but it has onions and chillies and that was amazing. I could have happily eaten more of it. Looking at the menu I suspect it may be the Enzo Royale which also has bolognese base and pepperoni.


We also had the chance to try some bread twists which I didn't take pictures of them7, they had chilli flakes and tasted extra nice when dunked in a balsamic and oil mix. 

As well as regular and cheese garlic bread I also tried Schia Bread, which is flat bread with red onions, rosemary and sea salt and I will be ordering another one od these. I did also try a piece of the vegan garlic bread which I think I preferred to the regular garlic bread (which was very nice) 


They brought round quite a lot of food and it was very had to resist, as you can see I had quite a lot of food. All in the name of research. 

Two of the pizzas I did resist were the Lasagne pizza and Nduja which has dolcelatte, nduja, toasted walnuts and rocket. I opted for the Enzo Royale instead and the Nduja just didn't do anything for me but it looks pretty impressive.


I had fully decided I was full and happy and ready to leave when they brought round slices of the Pesto Deluxe. I was happy to resist. I've never been a huge fan of pesto and it was covered in Rocket which I really dislike. (It tastes like fish to me - I've been told I'm wrong but each to their own)

When they said feta, I knew I had to try it. I've recently discovered how insanely good feta is on pizza and the rocket was just garnishing so I shook off the rocket and this has to be my pizza of the night.

The pesto and feta just work, I always ask for a very light covering of tomato sauce on pizza if I know they are being freshly made and if I'm honest it's all about the cheese for me.

I think I might have just had bad pesto before as I really did enjoy this and now all pizza's should be topped with it.

Looking through the menu there is an extensive drinks menu from coffee, teas and the usual soft drinks to a range of ice teas and a whole hot chocolate section. They are also licenced if you fancy a pizza and a tipple.

On the way out I noticed these flapjacks and they looked exactly like the ones at my old high school. You might think that's a bad thing but my school's flapjacks were amazing and I'm not just saying that becasue my best friends mum was the dinner lady in charge of making them.


Tram and weather dependent (they've been suspended again at the time of writing) I might be popping back into Enzo today for a coffee and a cake in the outside area.

I've also noticed they do vegan nights which look like could be a good night out and I noticed a poster for live entertainment on Fridays after work.

I was invited to Enzo and received the food and drink in exchange for a blog post, as always all views and opinion's are my own. I would recommend trying Enzo's and I will be back as I need to try a breakfast pizza and I want a square of that flapjack!

  1. We have a place in Reading that's pretty similar to this, called Artigiano - it also serves pizza and coffee! The decor of Enzo's is much funkier though (much like Manchester on the whole lol) x

  22. Oh how good does all that pizza look? I am an avid fan of pesto but can't stand feta so would have to ask if it could be swapped with another cheese! The flat bread looks great too! I wish it was closer to where I live!!!
