Rudy’s Pizza Napoletana has announced that its new Altrincham restaurant will be opening in July. The neighbourhood pizzeria will bring its relaxed dining concept to the former OneCentral food court on Central Way, right in the heart of the vibrant Manchester suburb.

The new Altrincham pizzeria will bring a facelift to Charis House, introducing a new mezzanine level, extension to the side/rear, and repositioning of the external stairwell, providing a spacious restaurant with over 100 covers, alongside outdoor dining options.

Since launching in 2015 in Ancoats, Rudy’s quickly gained a cult following for its authentic Neapolitan pizzas and quality ingredients. The new opening will mark the brand’s seventh pizzeria in Greater Manchester and its 27th in the country.


Born out of passion for pizza, 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 also pays homage to famous pizzerias around the globe with its rotating specials, bringing interesting and exciting flavour combinations to its fans.

Rudy’s dough is made fresh daily using Caputo ‘00’ flour which ferments for at least 24 hours, alongside the best quality ingredients from Naples, including San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella. In accordance with authentic Neapolitan techniques, the dough is cooked in a Stefano Ferrara oven for around 60 seconds – resulting in a soft and light pizza with an airy and raised cornicione (the edge or rim of the pizza).

While pizzas are a key part of Rudy’s, it wouldn’t be a traditional Naples experience without a well-stocked bar, which is why visitors will also be able to wash down their food with iconic Italian spritzes, crisp Italian and local lagers, and classic stirred cocktails.

Commenting on the new opening, Neal Bates of Rudy’s said, “We’re really excited about bringing Rudy’s authentic Neapolitan pizza to Altrincham, joining the community and getting to know our neighbours in this bustling suburb. We can’t wait to launch our newest site in Greater Manchester and welcome both residents and visitors to enjoy a slice of Naples right here in Altrincham.”
