Purveyors of all things pasta and pizza, Woolton Village are about to get a slice of Crust.

Launched by the team behind Duke Street’s Il Forno, Crust opened up on Bold Street in 2015 to incredible applause. More than 1000 customers entered in the first 48 hours and many returned for what some would argue is the best pizza in the city. A mix of fresh ingredients, unusual crusts and a beloved bowl of chocolate ravioli has been the winning formulae for Crust and they have plans to take over the former HSBC bank on the junction of Allerton Road and Woolton Street.

Woolton Village is home to some incredible places. From a strongly smelling takeaway bag of heaven from Liverpool Cheese Company to a hot orange chocolate at Coast to a beer outside The Elephant, punters are already spoilt for choice. The pizzeria plans only to add to the vibrancy and many will be excited to hear about the big beer garden they plan on opening where you can enjoy a cocktail or seven in the sunshine with a slice of the good stuff. Now that’s what we call a winning combination.

The planning is in the very early stages but the guys hope to be open by June. We’ll keep you updated.
