SquareMeal Review of Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza

Rudy’s provides an authentic slice of Naples in the heart of Ancoats, Manchester’s Little Italy. The 14-inch pizzas – made from dough prepared on site twice daily – are cooked for just 60 seconds in the wood-fired oven, resulting in a light, chewy, base. Several choices on the concise menu are available either ‘white’ or with a San Marzano tomato sauce; toppings might include Tuscan sausage and friarielli (like turnip tops), or Napoli salami with olive oil. Our prosciutto cotto pizza contained salty ham matched with fragrant basil, oregano and Parmesan. We also tried the Calabrese option, where soft, pleasingly spicy ’nduja sausage melted into the base. Smaller plates are simple – olives or salads – and panuozzo (warm sandwiches) are offered at lunchtime. Rudy’s decor is sparse and functional, allowing the pizzas to take centre stage. To drink, choose Campari soda, Spritz, Italian beers or something from the short, mainly Sicilian wine list.
