As a family we have always loved Rudy’s abs regularly visit in Manchester. We even ordered during COVID & had them delivered to our house for Home Baking. When we found out they were in Durham, we were so excited, as NO Pizza shop in the area comes anywhere near for flavour & authenticity! I ordered to collect for my Son’s Birthday on Monday 1st April & opted for the £55 Deal. 1 Rudy's for Four £55.00 Starter Garlic Bread with Mozzarella £0.00 Choose your 1st pizza (Night in for 2) Margherita & extraGreen Chilli Choose your 2nd Pizza (Night in for 2) Portobello Choose your 3rd Pizza Carni Choose your 4th Pizza Porchetta Choose your Dips (3) 2 Garlic Aioli Dip Chilli Honey Dip Choose your Drink (Bundle for 4) 2 Coke Bottle San Pellegrino Blood Orange San Pellegrino Limonata An easy 10/10 & I even noticed it was dog friendly when I visited, so we will 100% come for a sit-In very soon! Thanks to the Friendly Staff & Top Class Pizza Chef! Keep up the good work 😀

Walked past here two weeks ago for the first time and what caught our attention was a couple going in at 7.30 with a dog, so decided to try it, a very good decision. Booked online for Saturday night, liked that you get a mail a couple of days before to check that you're still going. A good welcome and taken to our table which is a decent size for two. A couple of cocktails and some nocellera olives, moved onto a very nice bottle of Italian red wine - very reasonably priced at under £30. Ordered two pizzas, both excellent and served very quickly, probably 15 inch and cooked to perfection. Very good service throughout and all staff seemed very friendly. Odd unfinished look to the restaurant but very unique, thoroughly recommend and will be returning.

This was our first time at Rudy's Durham and having been to Manchesters venue we were looking forwards to another good experience and it was. The pizzas were delicious and service attentive but relaxed so we could just sit back and enjoy the food and atmosphere. Thank you to our server Meneet S, she was lovely.

We visited here on 31st December after registering for the ‘pizza on us’ deal through their website. We were seated efficiently, brought menus, and a drinks order taken. Our order was taken in good time, and our server was pleasant and polite. When the pizzas arrived, it looked like the creamy cheese on my pizza had been put on at the end as there were great lumps of it, and it was cold. This meant that the whole pizza cooled down very quickly, to the point that the last third was cold to eat (and I eat very quickly)! My other half said his pizza was delicious. We also ordered desserts which were lovely although they had run out of vanilla gelato which was a shame. They did however offer a different flavour as an alternative. We asked for the bill and were surprised to see we had been charged for everything, despite the booking clearly saying ‘pizza on us’. This made for an awkward conversation with the server before we paid which was disappointing after reading reviews on here where people had been given free pizza ‘because it’s Christmas’ according to a different review. This put another dampener on the whole experience, which could have been fantastic. I would think twice about coming here again, especially when there are many other pizza offers in Durham.

We have been lots of times to Rudy’s in Manchester and really love their pizzas so were excited to try this new restaurant in Durham. Fortunately we booked as it was very busy on Saturday at lunchtime, with some people being turned away as there were no free tables. We are happy to report that the food here is delicious, huge pizzas with lovely toppings, tasty side salads and all at a very reasonable price. The staff are friendly and welcoming, they were very sweet with our guide dog puppy who came with us (we didn’t realise but Rudy’s is dog friendly anyway) and we will definitely come back. Thanks for a lovely lunch!

Came to Rudy’s on a Friday night. The place was busy but not overcrowded. Our waitress showed us to our seats and gave us time to choose our drinks. I opted for Rudy’s Pale Ale, a very tasty IPA. Plenty of time to choose what we wanted for mains. Once again I got a Pizza, very flavourful but I would have preferred the base to be a little crispier but definitely not something that ruined the meal. The pizza was very large and overlapped the plate so portion size was great! For the meals and 2 drinks I thought it was very well priced. Waitresses were great and very attentive too if we needed anything extra and how things were with the meals. I would definitely try if you are in the area.

Good and polite service. Food arrived before drinks. One drink never arrived. Pizza was good round the edges but way too much cheese resulting in a very soggy middle. Maybe trying to please English customers by loading on cheese but too much topping just doesn’t work.

This was an unexpected gem, visited on Christmas Eve Eve: it was superb. The atmosphere was excellent and the servers were absolutely fantastic! Our main server was helpful, happy, friendly and just seemed a generally wonderful person who couldn’t be happier to tell us about the food and answer any questions at all. The pizzas- and the dough- were beautiful. A brilliant dining experience and we will certainly go again. A fabulous team of people. Thank you for a great end to a Christmas day out!

Probably the best pizza I have ever had! Visited on a lunch time with a friend and we were both blown away by the delicious food. Service was ok and friendly. The whole place had a laid back hipster vibe. Could do with a little more staff training on drinks. I asked if they did anything like a Fanta or fizzy orange and the waiter said no, they only serve authentic Italian drinks. He suggested that I have a fresh orange and lemonade. Fair enough. When he returned with my drink I suggested they stock san pellegrino. Turns out they do sell blood orange san pellegrino. Never mind. We ordered the campana for starters which was a combination of delicious cured meats, burrata, breads and salad. Very fresh! The creamy burrata cheese pulled all of the elements together creating a delicious authentic Italian frenzy with each mouth full. Bellissimo! For mains we ordered both specials. A triple pepperoni and an ‘almost carbonara’. Both were very tasty but my favourite was surprisingly the almost carbonara. It was a white based pizza with a generous helping on guanciale (pigs cheek). The best part about both pizzas was the dough/pizza base. It was slightly charred in places adding a lightly bitter flavour. We both can’t wait to go back!

Our daughter introduced us to Rudy's. When she worked as a waitress in their original Ancoats, Manchester restaurant and we have been smitten ever since. We have been ordering their Bake at Home pizzas since they started offering them during the COVID pandemic, which are superb, and always appreciated, but now that we have a branch in Durham City we are overjoyed. The pizzas were complimentary on our first visit here, and they were of the highest quality. We intend to be regulars whenever we get a pizza craving.

Really great pizza and service. One of our pizzas was running as little late but the staff were clearly aware and apologetic so absolutely cannot fault that. So glad you've come up to Durham!

Amazing food, amazing service Our pizzas took 15ish minutes to come from ordering, and they gave us a free nibbles item! We weren't bothered at all but really appreciate that small touch. Maneet was a brilliant server- nothing was too much and we were so pleased with every little thing she did. We will definitely be back thanks to Maneet's service

Excellent as always. So happy that Rudy's decided to open in Durham. We've been eating Rudy's pizzas for a few years now and they never fail to please! We even had Rudy's ''Bake at Home" pizzas delivered to our door during lockdown, great to put in the freezer for when you fancy a delicious pizza!

Amazing service, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was quick and there were loads of options for vegetarians and other dietary requirements. We also love the option of being able to take your leftovers away in a takeaway box. 10/10

Was so happy to find out Rudys had opened in the North East as have visited them in Manchester many times. Attended with my partner and Labrador puppy and the staff could not do enough for us. The pizzas were amazing. Best pizza I’ve ever had. Recommend the special Triple pepperoni and the honey chilli sauce is 👌🏼 will definitely become regulars here. Great that it is dog friendly
