Round-up your mates and head to the Printhaus, Cardiff’s capital of cool, where owners Phil Lewis and his partner Debs have been producing mouth-watering pizzas and an apparently endless supply of good times in their quirky courtyard restaurant since 2016.

After beginning life as a humble pop-up in 2014, Dusty Knuckle has earned itself a cult following for the quality of its ingredients, all sourced from independent businesses, the crispiness of its bases and its dedication to seasonality. The Guardian even named it one of the UK’s top 10 pizzeria’s outside London.

The pizzas may be cooked in a wood-fired oven in traditional Neapolitan style, but the menus reflect Wales’ bountiful natural larder. Think laverbread, Penclawdd Cockles and samphire, all plucked from the pristine local coast, and a starter of Welsh Black beef stew, cooked until tender for no less than six hours.

Good solid rustic pizzas with a flavorful base. The starters are generous so bring a good appetite and enjoy lots of interesting ingredients. One of our party was looking for a pepperoni pizza, of which there isn't one on the menu but did enjoy the coppa in the end! The place can be a little nippy in the winter so come properly dressed and the blankets were warmly received but it is well worth a visit for some excellent pizza!

Love this place and the first table offer makes it an absolute bargain. Make sure you try the sourdough starter with mascarpone and anchovies - life changing!

Despite working close by we made our first visit to Dusty Knuckle last night, taking advantage of a 5.30 slot due to a cancelled business trip and having nothing in for supper.

The outdoor space is quirky and benefitted from overhead heaters to keep off the chill of an early autumn evening. A board of "specials" (starters, mains and desserts" supplemented the "usual stuff" menu, but a couple of items weren't available or weren't ready when we visited (their raved about Panacotta being one of them as it hadn't long been made and wouldn't be ready to serve until around 8pm) which was a bit of a shame, but perhaps a downside of eating so early after opening.

We ordered the anchovies and mascarpone starter, a pint of very good Pipes beer and two pizzas.

The anchovy and mascarpone combination was sublime; served with chunky, warm toasted sourdough it's definitely an idea I'll be stealing! Our pizzas arrived quickly, a Puttanesca (olives, anchovies, red onion, red peppers, capers) for him and a Blas Y Mor (Laverbread, cockles, samphire, lardons) for me. We asked for some chilli and garlic oils but neither were available, but we were offered some complimentary hot sauces, chilli flakes and chopped raw garlic instead.

Another half of Pipes pale ale helped wash our supper down and overall we enjoyed our evening very much.

The restaurant was quite when we visited with just a couple of tables occupied, but I'm sure the atmosphere when it's busier later in the evening is fabulous.

Thanks for a great introduction to your food Dusty Knuckle!

Great place with a wonderful food ethos. I really can't fault anything about the experience. It's tucked away, quirky and great quality. I wish them all the luck in the world with this business. Can't wait to come again and try more beautiful seasonal food.

Everything about the meal was fantastic, even though they didn’t have much left to offer for starters. The pizzas were wonderful. Although paying the bill seemed to be confusing for the waitress. But overall still an enjoyable experience.

We went for a mid-week dinner and couldn't be happier. The atmosphere was great, I thought it might be a little empty so early but there we people at other tables. The service was really friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We will certainly be back!

Our family really enjoyed our experience at Dusty Knuckle. The pizza crust was the best I’ve ever had and we especially enjoyed the anchovie and marscapone starter. Great service and environment too!
