Crispy mouth-watering pizza at Rudy’s latest West London location

Rudy’s opens new Queensway restaurant

When I caught wind that Rudy’s was opening a brand new destination restaurant at Queensway, I rejoiced. Not only is it super close to my office, but Rudy’s is renowned for its quick, efficient and quality service – definitely a spot I could fit into my lunch break.

In the end, we took the whole team down for a bit of a lunchtime treat and were delighted with the friendly warm welcome. As the newest addition to the chain’s repertoire, the space is huge, light and airy, with a big open kitchen in the centre. The open kitchen serves to spreading around that delicious fresh dough smell, to get mouths watering before you’re even seated.

As well as Queensway, Rudy’s has other locations in Soho, Shoreditch, Fitzrovia and Spitalfields in London, and many other city locations across the UK. The new Rudy’s in Queensway also honours its authentic Neapolitan roots through the drinks menu, with a well-stocked bar serving iconic Italian spritzes, crisp Italian Poretti, and classic stirred-cocktails. We ordered our Spritz’s and got onto the difficult decision of which pizza to have.

There are starter options including olives, garlic bread and a delicious looking burrata, but on a time limit, we decided to jump straight in with the pizzas. A highlight option included the Portobello which is topped with San Marzano tomato, fior di latte, portobello mushrooms, basic, oregano, sea salt Grana Padano and garlic oil. Guests are also offered the option to have all as a white pizza if tomato base isn’t preferred.

After much deliberation, I went for the Calabrese which had basil and spicy n’duja sausage. This was perfectly accompanied with a stunning chilli honey dip. The pizza was well cooked and crisp, not a soggy bottom in sight!

We also trialled the classic Margherita which was delicious and the Agnello Vegana – the vegan option. The latter was topped with tenderstem broccoli, kalamata olives and plant-based lamb – an interesting alternative to a veggie-packed vegan option.

There are a full range of dips including garlic aioli, and a range of side salads. I would highly recommend the Caesar Salad which was the perfect accompaniment. Due to the Italian style of the pizza, I wasn’t too uncomfortably full, but it kept me fuelled until dinner time. The  perfect lunch time treat.
