The new opening has combined multiple units on Otley Road’s Headingley Arndale to bring a taste of the Neapolitan sunshine to the suburbs of Leeds.
The relaxed neighbourhood pizzeria has over 100 covers in the bustling heart of the area offering interior and al-fresco dining – and it’s already making quite the impression with locals.
Grab a seat in sun-lit corners and choose from selections like portobello mushrooms, salami, prosciutto and porchetta to top huge Neapolitan style pizzas created before your eyes.
The open plan kitchen showcases the huge brick pizza oven at the heart of the venue, with kitchens spreading the scent of freshly cooked tomatoes and mozzarella around the restaurant – and this alone is enough to get your stomach rumbling in anticipation.
Following on from the success of Leeds’ second Rudy’s site, which opened last year in Chapel Allerton, Rudy’s is continuing to bring Leeds a true Italian feast that has been known and loved in the city for a good few years now.
Born in 2015 in Ancoats, Manchester, the foodie favourite has since expanded across the north to bring Marinara, Margherita and Calabrese to Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and even the capital.
And it’s no surprise really, with fresh pizzas made using Caputo ‘00’ flour (which ferments for at least 24 hours), with quality ingredients imported from Naples, including the likes of San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella – there’s something for all pizza lovers to find on the menu.
And there’s plenty more besides just pizza on the menu too. Choose from creamy burrata and Caprese salads, huge portions of meats and cheeses, the Campana, as well as sweet treats like gelato and affogato to compliment your meal.
As for drinks, you’ll find a classic Italian-dominated wine list, popular aperitivos like Aperol Spritz and Campari soda, and a selection of different beers and softs.
From today, Monday 13 April, Rudy’s Headingley officially opens so you can taste test the pizzeria for yourself- and whilst the restaurant does take walk-ins, the new opening is already booking up fast.
