It’s been seven years since Rudy’s stole our hearts for the first time. Four since they expanded to Peter Street. And three since they took their beloved Neapolitan pizza nationwide. And now, they’re set to secure their reign over Manchester once and for all – by the looks of it, with a brand new pizzeria.
The business submitted a licensing application just last week for the same address that the old Dawson’s music shop resided at on Portland Street, suggesting a third Manchester venue for the popular pizzeria could be on the cards.
Spanning over two floors, the property boasts a floor-to-ceiling glass front and benefits from a central location close to both Piccadilly Gardens and the Gay Village. In fact, the new location would only be a stone’s throw away from their second Manchester restaurant on Peter Street, too.
The pizzeria is known for its authentic-style Neapolitan pizza, which earned itself the ranking of 10th best pizza in the world some time ago, and attracts persistent queues round the block of locals waiting to get a taste of Naples.
Rudy’s Pizza can currently be found at both 9 Cotton St, Ancoats, M4 5BF and Petersfield House, Peter St, M2 5QJ. The restaurant chain also operates in Sale, Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds, London and Stockton Heath.
