Rudy’s Harborne is set to open on Saturday 8th July

The neighbourhood pizzeria, Rudy’s Pizza Napoletana, will bring its relaxed dining concept to the former Hawkshead Taphouse, at 77 High Street, Harborne. 

Serving the perfect and classic Neapolitan pizza since 2015 from its original Rudy’s in Ancoats, the much-loved pizzeria has since opened more sites with the brand-new restaurant in Harborne being its third location in Birmingham. 

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 dough is made fresh daily using Caputo ‘00’ flour which ferments for at least 24 hours, alongside the best quality ingredients imported from Naples, including San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella. 

All accordance to a truly authentic Neapolitan technique, the dough is cooked in a Stefano Ferrara oven for just 60 seconds – resulting in a soft and light pizza with an airy and raised cornicione (the edge or rim of the pizza). 

Louis Symeonides, General Manager of Rudy’s Harborne said: “We’re really looking forward to bringing Rudy’s Pizza to Harborne’s bustling high street. Since our initial announcement, we’ve been welcomed with open arms by the local community and can’t wait to open our doors to welcome them in.”

Rudy’s Harborne opens seven days a week, Monday to Sunday, from 12pm until 9pm.
