Originating in Manchester in 2015 as a family-run establishment, Rudy’s has garnered huge attention for their authentic Neapolitan pizza, and even been named the best pizza in the UK and 10th best in the world – including actual Italian establishments. Can’t get any better than that, can ya? And now, us Yorkshire folk can get a slice of the action, with their newest Rudy’s pizza restaurant opening up in Leeds very, very soon.
Confirming they’d picked up the keys for their new space just earlier this year, the pizza pros will take up the old Evan’s Cycles space on New Station Street for Rudy’s Pizza Leeds and are now set to open up on February 24.
The brand has proved hugely successful and has seen massive growth over the past two years, with two busy and bustlin’ restaurants in Manchester city centre, one in Liverpool and another just opened in Birmingham. Even after almost 5 years since their inception, the restaurant always has a wait on tables – a true testament to just how good their pizza is. Each of their restaurants is super casual, operating as walk-in only. Our tip? Turn up just before peak-time to guarantee a table without a wait!
The menu is stripped back, serving a variety of pizza options with authentic ingredients sourced from Italy, like-wise for their drinks menu. My personal fave? The Calabrese pizza and the Zaccagnini white wine – an iconic duo if you ask me.
Trust us on this one, it really is outta this world. Rudy’s Pizza, Leeds, opens February 24, 2020.
