Beautiful meal! Me and a friend dined here on Saturday evening and the whole experience was perfect! The service was exceptional and very attentive. The food was very tasty and traditional. It’s safe the say that the house red wine and goats cheese starter were to die for. Overall I can’t recommend dining at this restaurant enough! We will be back. Thanks to the team at Rossellas!

My friend and I dined at Rosella before an event at the O2 Forum. The restaurant is just a few minutes walk from the venue. There was a great ambience and we were well looked after. The food was delicious! I would definitely recommend Rosella.

Lovely restaurant with great food, reasonably priced, I’ve been back twice in a week! My only criticism (which was perhaps due to being dat outside) was I feel like we were forgotten about slightly in terms of service. It was hard to get someone’s attention to get another drink etc. But overall a real gem!

As soon as you go in there, you're transported from Highgate Road to Italy! The family that run it are delightful, there is a wide ranging menu, and the service is excellent. The ambience is great too, with lots of interesting food and dtink products made on the family farm in Italy, and other Italian foods, on display on the shelves.

The food at Rosella is great and the staff friendly, my only small complaint is that their kitchen fans aren't every effective, so your clothes smell like you've spent an evening in the kitchen

Great meal and really good value. My wife and I were catching up with another couple and this was the perfect place. Great sized portions, of delicious Italian food meant no one left hungry; and we were actually surprised that the bill was so reasonable we gave a sizeable tip!!
Will definitely be back!

As we had booked the table we arrived a bit early but our friends were already there, and had got a bottle of the Rosella family red wine which was very good. Although it was very busy, service was excellent and the food was just the kind of tasty, robust Italian food I love. Obviously an outstanding example of a London-Italian family run restaurant, I don't know why it took us so long to discover it!

We love the ambience of this little cosy authentic Italian restaurant. The kitchen produces beautiful dishes, and the specials are gone quite quickly! Service with a smile a decent price too which is rare these days. Easy parking once you know how!!

Noisy but in a nice way e.g. hustle and bustle but you can still have a conversation easily.

Good food, relaxed atmosphere, value for money.

We always love coming here, dog friendly, great food, lovely staff. I knocked one star off for value only because we ordered some dishes from the specials board and they are quite pricey whereas the normal day to day menu is amazing value
