Sample award-winning pizza at Rudy's
It didn’t take long for word to spread about Rudy’s appetising Neapolitan pizzas. Debuting on Ancoats’ Cotton Street in 2015 and named after founders Jim Morgan and Kate Wilson’s little dog, the venue’s fast-and-easy style became a quick hit with locals, who’d queue for hours to get a pizza cooked inside their wood-burning stove. Shortly after they were featured in the prestigious Where To Eat Pizzas world guide, a second, larger space was unveiled in the centre of town on Peter Street. At around £9 a pizza, they’re great value for money but expect a wait. On average, it takes about 40 minutes to bag a seat. But there are plenty of bars to visit nearby to kill the time.
