As I’m sure you know by now, when a new Italian restaurant opens in my hometown, I like to discover more about it and preferably pay a visit as soon as possible. So when I heard that an Italian restaurant had opened as part of the new development on the former Vosper Thornycroft site in Woolston, I just had to contact them. Just to register my interest, of course 😉

2017 Winter Menu Launch @ Franco Manca, Southampton

DSCI0024

I was thrilled to be invited to the winter menu launch night at one of my favourite local eateries! I was actually at the restaurant one Friday night on a first date when the Restaurant Manager, Paul Galvin, very kindly invited me and a guest to the event the following Wednesday. He was being a bro! What an exciting opportunity to sample the new menu items before anyone else, and all on the house too! How could I say no to free pizza?! Unlike my previous invite to this amazing restaurant, my mother wasn’t invited. Instead, a close friend of mine, Amy Boniface, managed to get the night off from childcare and wifely duties to join me.  Continue reading

Portswood has enjoyed a refresh in recent years and now boasts a quirky selection of eateries. Over the last five years, this suburb just outside the city centre is home to a few gelaterias, a Greek taverna, a burger joint, a shisha bar and now *drum roll* a Neapolitan Pizzeria too! I was browsing Facebook one night and I saw on the Baffi page they listed a branch in Portswood. Eagerly I sent them a message asking more about this branch. I sent them a link to Keith’s Kitchen and they very kindly invited me in for a complimentary meal for two. Amazing! How could I refuse another free pizza?! What’s more, I was the only blogger to be invited!!  Continue reading

I was thrilled to hear that a Neapolitan pizzeria had opened in Southampton’s new West Quay Watermark development. How such news passed me by still baffles me. I mean, you guys should know by now how much I love Neapolitan pizza!! I found their Facebook and saw they had a bloggers night to celebrate their opening, and people even got to make their own pizzas; wow! So I sent them a message asking whether they have any other bloggers evenings planned. The general manager, Mr Paul Galvin, very kindly invited me into the restaurant for a meal for two… on the house!! It was an extremely generous offer I couldn’t refuse.  Continue reading

Keith’s Quick Bites Review – Pizza Margherita @ Greggs UK

I know, I know, it’s yet another pizza review!! But hear me out on this one. I rarely visit Greggs, but occasionally they introduce something yummy on their menu, such as the now-discontinued hot dog. Greggs is always great value for a cheap lunch on the go, and this pizza is a great addition to the menu.
