There are lots of places that do pizza here in Manchester but none like Rudy's Pizza in the heart of Ancoats, the inner city suburb of Manchester.
Light delicate dough, mozzarella that melts in your mouth, and a tomato sauce doing all that it should, exploding with hints of garlic and basil. I've been looking for traditional Italian pizza ever since my honeymoon to Sardinia five years ago. I think I've found it.
I ordered Rudy's margarita pizza
With a simple menu - done really well - the rustic, open plan space has bags of character and warmth. And to top it off, Enzo and I were greeted with a huge smile. A baby chair was brought over swiftly, as were the menus. I ordered the classic margarita.
As we waited for our food, the afternoon buzz kept Enzo entertained; the lively open kitchen, the stone oven on the go, the chitter-chatter from the friendly staff.
