Rudy’s Pizza Napoletana Nottingham announces opening date

Rudy’s Pizza Napoletana has set a date for the opening of its very first Nottingham site. The relaxed, neighbourhood pizzeria is set to welcome diners.


Boasting 120 covers across a spacious single open plan space, with an additional private pizza room for up to 16 covers on the lower floor, Rudy’s Nottingham has transformed the former French Connection on Victoria Street.

Rudy’s follows the authentic Neapolitan tradition of pizza making, serving classic recipes such as Marinara, Margherita and Calabrese – all originating from Naples, the birthplace of pizza. Rudy’s dough is made fresh daily with Caputo ‘00’ flour, alongside ingredients imported from Naples including San Marzano tomatoes and Fior di Latte mozzarella.

Alongside its classic and authentic dishes, Rudy’s Nottingham is also serving up three new signature specials.


First up, Triple Pepperoni, inspired by Rudy’s travel to New York, this popular pizza is topped with San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte, Napoli pepperoni, British pepperoni, Calabrian pepperoni, Stracciatella and chili honey.


With festive season now upon us, Rudy’s Durham will launch with the winter specials gracing the menu. Zucca (suitable for vegetarian) is created by Rudy’s own staff member, Francesco Aiello who originates from Palermo, Sicily. The unique pizza uses pumpkin cream as its base, topped with fior di latte, goats cheese, roasted garlic chestnut mushrooms, finished with a sprinkle of toasted pumpkin seeds and chilli flakes.


Another special for the season is Guanciale & Pear; a tribute to award-winning Italian pizzaioli, Teresa Iori, who founded the famous Naples pizzeria, le Figlie di Iorio. The white pizza is topped with fior di latte, gorgonzola, guanciale (cured pork cheek) and fresh pears, sprinkled with toasted walnuts and fresh thyme.


Neal Bates from Rudy’s Nottingham said: “The team is really excited to be opening our first site in Nottingham. A vibrant and cool city, Nottingham has everything on its doorstep, and we look forward to being part of the neighbourhood – serving the classic Neapolitan pizzas right in the city centre.”


Rudy’s Nottingham opens from Monday 27 November. The opening times are Monday to Thursday from 12pm until 9.30pm, Friday to Saturday from 12pm until 10pm, and Sunday from 12pm until 9pm.
