Next up on my Italian frenzy series is the tasty and relatively new addition to Bold Street, Crust. Their unique take on traditional Italian dishes offers Liverpool’s bustling upcoming location an Italian edge. Their quirky and rustic restaurant covers all your foodie needs every day of the week. From breakfast served at 10am right through to cocktails and drafts beers until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.


Keep your expectations high with their impressively fast and efficient service and fabulous prices especially for students on a budget. Their extensive menu leaves you spoilt for choice with 30 different pizzas and 15 pasta dishes showing off their flare in Italian cuisine. You even have the option to design your very own individual pizza whether this is for specific food requirements or because you fancy your own unique twist.

If their 30 types of pizzas isn’t enough for you yet, then their choice of 3 dough’s is another way to add that fancy touch to your pizza. There is the five grain dough which consists of a unique blend of flax, wheat, germ, oat, spelt ad rice flour. This dough is full to the brim of healthiness and nourishment. Black dough uses a natural vegetable charcoal that helps detoxify the body. And finally their organic dough is homemade from their high quality flour in order to make their famous crust.


You are taken to the streets of Rome with their authentic Italian wood fire pizza oven and open kitchen as well as delicious ingredients imported all the way from Italy. The atmosphere is quirky and original, offering a friendly and warm welcome in from the cold winter weather. And if you still don’t know if you can make it out from your cosy warm homes, then they offer a takeaway service which I can promise you is just as good!

Out of all the flavourful choices I decided to start with wood fired Tuscan bread topped with tomatoes, fior di latte mozzarella, basil, extra virgin olive oil and smoky ham. My friend decided to have calamari fried in a light batter with garlic mayonnaise and spicy salsa prawns. For the main course I had a margarita pizza with flakes of chicken on top. There is no doubt for the reasons behind their cleverly naming of the restaurant, the crust was crispy and light. My friend had the classic tagliatelle Bolognese, with a classic beefy and tomato sauce.  I would definitely recommend any of these dishes if you’re looking for a mouth-watering meal that gives you a real taste for the Italian cuisine.
